My Creative Notebook

 

Welcome to My Creative Notebook, I’ve always been fascinated by the creative process and believe that everyone has their own personal collection of skills and abilities, which just needs time and encouragement to develop.

Finding the time and space to be creative is vital to sustain creativity, one of the most important actions in any day is to seize the moments which sometimes occur when you least expect it; to simply stand and stare, to be inspired by a beautiful view, hear a bird singing, or to watch your family laughing together. Treasure these moments; they form the rich tapestry of living in a creative way.

There are so many amazing sources of inspiration and I hope in this space to share ideas, thoughts, words, books, resources, art, photography, events and  interviews, which I hope you will enjoy and find inspiring.

Despite this space being rooted in technology, I see My Creative Notebook as a starting point from which to go and do things!

THE WEDDING PACT - ISLA GORDON

August Anderson needs somewhere to live. Dumped by her boyfriend who would rather be alone than move in with her, she has almost given up on happiness. Until she notices that the beautiful Georgian townhouse she's long admired (ahem, *obsessed over*) is looking for a new tenant, and suddenly it seems like things might be looking up . . .

THE MIX-UP - HOLLY MCCULLOCH

Paige might bake wedding cakes for a living but that doesn’t mean she's dreaming about her own perfect day. Far from it. Trusting people is hard after she was badly let down by her family and boyfriend just when she needed them most. And to make things worse, her ex has just walked into her bakery with his new fiancée...

The A to Z of Us – Hannah Doyle

THE A TO Z OF US - HANNAH DOYLE

If you want to know the A-Z of love then it starts with Alice and ends with Zach. Alice is a self-confessed cynic when it comes to love. She's never had a serious relationship herself and after supporting her best friend through a devastating break-up, she's not about to let down her barriers anytime soon. Relationships always end badly.

The Handover – David M. Barnett

THE HANDOVER - DAVID M. BARNETT
