Soundtrack to Spring

As the daffodils start to appear and blossom tentatively creeps onto the trees here in my corner of the UK, I thought it was the perfect time for a soundtrack to welcome in the spring.

I love reflecting the mood of nature with the music I listen to, and spring is no exception. There are some beautiful songs around that celebrate the turning of the seasons, capturing the gentle tentative wakening of the world.

From Vivaldi to Simon & Garfunkel, listen to my Spotify playlist here – or preview it below – and join me in putting a soundtrack to spring! Track listings are given at the end for anyone who doesn’t use, or want to use Spotify (totally understandable).

Colouring emotions

Colouring emotions

Colours have an emotional connection for many of us, and we can use them to express ourselves where we maybe don’t have the words. Colouring emotions is a very simple activity I created for myself to help identify emotions, and explore their subtle nature.

For original homeware, stationery and gifts, buying from independent makers is absolutely the way to go. There’s something just so satisfying about knowing you’ve helped another creative keep their business running, and you can’t beat the beauty of something handmade.
