Guess How Much I Love You

0

I walked out of my corporate world 7 years ago. It was time to do something that made me happy again. I’ve always loved being creative. Making and doing from a very young age. I studied Art and Design throughout School and College, then ceramics and Glassware for my Degree at De Montfort University. And there it stopped. I needed to earn money and so then spent the next 15 years mostly doing something I disliked. I walked out, then spent 18 months travelling the world. I started to feel like me again. Inspired by everything around me. The long…

PRISM – Tell it like it is

0

I am so glad that I don’t live in the Victorian, Edwardian or any of these eras, when you weren’t supposed to speak your minds, let alone feelings, and any emotional expression was through gestures, well choreographed formalities or a coy lowering of your eyes. Fan language…I would have sent all the wrong signals! But although we’ve lost all that – well, there’s still “playing with your hair if you fancy someone” and all that – some people still find it hard to actually SAY what they feel.
