The Optimist's Creed

I have this up on my wall at home right next to my vision board, and I was having a read of it and thought it would be nice to share on here for those of you that haven't come across it.  I first saw this and found it in The Secret.  If you would like a printable copy like I have to put up on your wall I have this version here which is from the Secret. 

The Optimist’s Creed by Christian D. Larson

I promise myself

•To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

•To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

•To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

•To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

•To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

•To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

•To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

•To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

•To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

•To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

•To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

•To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
Christian D. Larson (Modified by the Secret 2007)
These affirmations are so powerful, reading them is one thing, living them is truly life transforming.  I try and read this once each day and of course to make an effort to follow these principles. I hope you are inspired to do the same.

It is an absolutely freezing cold day today.  I just went for a morning walk about an hour ago I love the cold brisk mornings. Maybe its the thought of coming back to a warm and cozy space aftewards.

This sort of weather is perfect for cooking healthy warm winter comfort food, lighting scented candles, listenting to beautiful uplifting music, creating amazing projects with your hands, reading inspirational books, drinking cups of hot chocolate, sitting by fireplaces having long uplifting and funny conversations with someone interesting and being thankful for each season as it brings new opportunities with it to do different things with our day.

Breathe it in and enjoy! xx

New Designer Paper Party Bags in Store Soon

Just finished baking two deserts for tomorrow with my kids.  Sticky Date Pudding and Choc Nut Fudge Slice.  We have given my mum the day off tomorrow and we are all preparing a few things each so she can have a break from cooking for once.  I love baking when I'm in the mood for it and the kids love getting involved as well.  We usually put the music up loud, sing, dance and bake all at the same time.  Most of the week my kids all have a home baked snack in their lunch.  I prefer  they have something homemade than a pre packaged muesli bar.  Cooking and baking is pretty high on our priority list around here.

It has been such a busy week with sick kids home from school for most of the week.  It feels like I haven't had any time to myself to create.  Looking forward to everything getting back to normal next week and having some proper time to work and create and sleeping through the night again without having to wake up constantly to sick kids with fevers.

Anyway before I go I Just thought I would share some new products we will have in store soon.  Cannot wait to recieve these they are super cute.  Great new decorative ideas for lolly bags, party bags.  The notebook bags are just adorable, these would be great with a little message on the front.  Cant wait to have a play with a few design ideas when they arrive.

To all the mums out there, have a happy day tomorrow and enjoy being spoiled !!

Paper Runway - A New Paper Magazine

I have been missing in blog land lately and to be honest I just haven't felt inspired to blog.  You know sometimes you have those weeks where things that you do automatically become a little dull and boring.  Not that blogging is boring but just I felt that I didn't have anything to show or tell that would be interesting.  Hence the little break.

Anyway I came across a link that I just had to share.  I assume most of you who read this blog are lovers of all things paper like me.  So how excited that a magazine has been released dedicated to paper.

Take a look it is fabulous!!!.  First edition is free to read and view on line.  Grab a cuppa and head on over to see it.  Some great articles and inspiration.  Take a look here.
