Give your heart…

After last month’s postcard project, a good friend approached me to create another postcard as a culmination of their community project in Wolverhampton. Residents of a couple of streets in Wolverhampton were invited to add a heart to a frame set out in the street, to say “thank you” to everyone who’s work and contribution […]

Spring back

Last spring (2020) I took a lot of photos of nature in our garden and on walks. So we thought we’d celebrate this spring by sending a quick printed* message to some friends – A celebration of spring and all that this time of year freely gives us. #print* Alongside the sickness that the media […]

Remember me…

I was asked to create an Easter card for a local Methodist Church Circuit and thought others may like similar. Below is the A5 card I created that Borders Methodist Circuit will be using to share Easter greetings and resources with their friends. I have also created a generic A6 postcard. If you’d like some […]

Signs of hope, love, and… resilience?

Still seeking signs of hope, love, and… (perhaps the word of the year) resilience? It’s a difficult time – for some it’s almost impossible, for others it’s unimaginable, for many it’s just cancellations, restrictions, and extreme limitations… life on pause?

Five mindful mins…

‘Five Mindful Minutes’ bookmarks… #printables Here’s a reminder of the bookmark design I revamped last year. The bookmarks were originally created to be left in public places like airports, railway stations, waiting rooms etc.  They can be given out, or made available, where people might benefit from ‘taking time out’ of their busy lives. These […]

A covenant…

An agreement between people to do or not do something specific. I’m currently reading ‘Logging Off’ by Nick Spalding, where midlife man ‘Andy’ starts a sixty-day digital detox. Andy sort of makes a covenant with himself to do stuff differently. It’s amusing, I’ll let you know if it’s life changing. But, it’s the subject of […]

MS Publisher for bespoke items.

Match-cards, revision-cards, flashcards… Yes, it’s easy to use the default Microsoft Word†, add boxed text etc and trim-out cards. But it’s not very tidy or economical and to be honest there’s an easier, tidier and more economical way. Our old friend Microsoft Publisher*. If you have MS Office then it’s there.

Yet when planted, it grows…

Over the last few weeks I’ve been part of a ‘lockdown’ project from the Facebook Group ‘Create!‘, part of Northampton District Methodist Church. The project aims to raise awareness of the Christian conviction that nobody should be ‘locked down’ because of who they are. The Methodist Church is “committed to sharing, with all, the refuge […]

Advent Project – An extraordinary story…

Ordinary people, in an ordinary place… an extraordinary story… A few years back, I helped produce a project that portrayed people from a local village, relating them to characters in ‘The Christmas Story’. ‘Ordinary’ people in their ‘ordinary’ place – we are perhaps all part of an ‘extraordinary’ story.  Recently, Jill Marsh the District Mission […]
