A couple of weeks back I shared this picture of the aftermath of a busy week of paper crafting on social media.
I also said I’ll do a blog post on this so without further ado here are the products of that busy period. I’m going to show and talk you through the creation of 7 customised Thank You cards for a UK client.
My client recently got a long sought after promotion at work and in gratitude to the Sponsor Partners/Directors at the firm who vouched for his candidacy for the new role, he approached me to create Thank You cards for each of them. He supplied his personal wordings for each recipient, company logo too and requested that I make the cards personalised for each individual.
Hello & Welcome to the month of April!
Don’t worry I’ve not got any April fools prank in this post I promise 🙂
This month’s quote if from the book titled ‘Oh The Places You’ll Go’ by children’s author Dr Seuss. Though I was familiar with his other books like ‘Cat in the Hat’ and ‘Green Eggs and Ham’, prior to picking this quote, I’d never read this particular book and only read it after I’d designed this April page. The words of the book are really inspiring and motivating so I’ve decided to reproduce them here to give more meaning to this month’s quote, which is;
You’re off to Great Places. Today is Your Day
I hope the words of the book truly inspire you to find your inner greatness and to give yourself permission to go live your dreams. This post is dedicated to everyone who dreams of achieving more and also to my country Nigeria. Congratulations to all Nigerians who took part in the just concluded Presidential elections. As we take new historic strides towards a better democracy I pray we realise our collective power as a people who have the capacity to work together peacefully and move Nigeria towards greater achievements.
Welcome to the new month of March. Can’t believe it’s March already, how time flies. I hope 2015 has been good to you so far and I also hope that the rest of the year shall be truly awesome for everyone.
So on to today’s order of business, this month’s quote is
Start each day with a grateful heart
I’ve been trying hard to put this into practice ever since I decided this would be the quote for March, every morning as I open my eyes I try and say a little thank you prayer. I know it can sometimes be hard to find something to grateful for especially when you feel life isn’t being fair or you’re stressed out. Life can be really hard and it’s easy to get depressed, bitter or even angry about it but I choose to believe that the fact that we are still here, with blood flowing through our veins, means that life isn’t through with us yet and there’s still something left within us that the world is waiting to experience. Isn’t that one good enough reason to be grateful?
HELLO & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Hope you had a fabulous New Year’s Eve celebration and now ready to face 2015 and everything it has to offer.
As New Year’s traditions go I’m sure quite a few of you have made resolutions or have goals you would like to achieve this year. Yes? No? Did you make any last year? And how many of your targets did you hit or miss? I know I definitely missed my targets with regards to this blog. If blogs could talk I bet mine would give me a good earful about how neglected it must have felt in 2014.
So this year I’ve devised a plan of action to keep me productive on this blog. I actually didn’t have a set plan last year so I’m hoping that since I’ve thought this through it will work out (how well will it work out? I guess I’ll find out in the implementation) . So part of my plan is to create a calendar of motivational quotes. I’m not a big fan of calendars, which could be why I was not that organised last year, so I’m hoping to kill like 3 birds with this stone….talk about ambitious right.
Today’s post is a celebratory one. IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!! It’s also my niece’s birthday. The little lady turns 10 and I turn….. no point revealing my age because a lot of you won’t believe me anyways. Lol! And no I’m not a ‘vampire’ as some people have tried to convince themselves. You know who you are. Anyways HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!! Over here in Nigeria the government has declared today and tomorrow public holidays to celebrate the muslim holiday. HURRAYYY!! Thank you Nigeria for my special birthday gift! 🙂
It’s nearly Christmas!! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone by. So much has happened this year and quite frankly I can’t wait to be through with 2013 but that’s another story. So here we are in December, the last month of the Gregorian calendar. It’s winter in the northern hemisphere of the earth and warm and sunny in the south. I actually find it quite fascinating that South Africa goes through winter when Europe is in the summer months. Simply Amazing!
We do live on a wonderful planet and if you’re of the Christian faith like myself, then Christmas has a very deep and special meaning to you when God, the creator of this world, sent his son Jesus to come live among us.
And for you cynics out there, yes I am well aware that what we celebrate as Christmas day, the birth of Jesus Christ, could not actually have occurred on December 25th, but was created by early Christians to overshadow a pagan winter celebration and cause a conversion of belief towards the Christian faith. I think it’s even been concluded that Christ was probably born in the summer months (June/July) because you won’t have shepherds grazing their flock out in the middle of winter! (Apologies to anyone who wasn’t aware of this before. Sorry you had to find out this way. By the way Santa as you now him today was fabricated by Coca Cola!).
