Name my craft store

I have a growing collection of crafts I’ve created and a growing collection of items to use for making faebulous things and I really need a craft store to sell them. I’ve been researching for a while, and a marketing guru advised that it would be better to have a separate social media account for […]

I haven’t been so active on here and blogging of late. I tried Patreon and most of my updates and fresh content where there, but alas, it did not work out quite as I had hoped. So, I shall be back here I think, at least for the time being. The future may see me […]

Return of the Jai

I always liked my name being shortened to the sound of that first letter. The problem was that I never really felt like Jay or Jaye fit me. I love Ys in names until the cows come home but that was not me. Jae was not me either. Then I came across Jai and it […]

The Art of the Unplug

Unplug your life Do you ever have that feeling where you know what you need to do but you also have excuses for not doing it? That has been me for a number of days. It’s possible the feeling started before that, but it was in the last week that it became strongest. On Tuesday […]

Putting Me First at a Creepy Cabaret

Putting ‘Me’ first is hard. Many of us are conditioned to put ourselves last; especially as women. We shouldn’t be doing that, we should be putting me first! We need to learn to take the time to focus on ourselves and our personal journey. Sometimes it’s hard when you have already had a long and […]
