Be Happy…

Christmas is a time of spending lots of money and putting on fake smiles for a pair of socks.  Right about now, a famous phrase comes out – ‘This year, lets not buy anything’.  But we never seem to follow through.

Funny enough the one present I cherish the most was a photocopied piece of paper my Mother slipped in beside the pair of socks about 8 years ago. It was this photocopied paper which I added below. This little poster has sat above my desk both at home and at my office for 8 years as my inspiration on work and life (and in fact, thanks for reminding me to make another copy for my files so I don’t loose it!).  I think the personal part that makes it so endearing is the random coloring with a highlight which my mother obviously done in a a random gesture of love.


I guess my point is that you should surround yourself with inspirations.  Both in your craft, and in your life.  These things will always bring out the best in you.

And like that!

Update – If you want this image for you office, I’ve created a pdf version of the image.  Download
