Inspirational Signs!

I like Inspirational quotes. They make me feel warm and fuzzy inside and this week when lil man was having one of his "I'm bored!!!!!" moments I decided to let him help me so some messy painting using my posh watercolours. Naturally it only kept him occupied for ten minutes till he declared that also boring.

I had an ulterior motive though, I'd seen some really cute inspirational posters on etsy and knew I could make my own. 

Basically we chucked some paint down on drawing paper. Waited what felt like ten years for them to dry. Then I perused pinterest searching for nice quotes which I wrote in pencil and tehn went over in either sharpie or fine liner. Depending on the font I'd used!  

Not all who wander are lost - J RR Tolkien 

This is one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite books!

Enjoy Today

I think I need to remember to enjoy the little things in life more. I seem to spend a lot of time stressing and not much time relaxing. Especially when life is so good right now!

Shine like the Stars

This is so cheesy it makes me cringe a bit. Like in our GCSE leaving assembly where the head teacher was all like reach for the moon you just might land on a star? *cringes*

The best is yet to come

For a long time the future scared the bejeezus out of me but now I can't wait to see whats around the corner!

I can & I will

I had a lot of people give me side eye when I told them I was pregnant at 18. I mean "OMG your life is OVER! Do you need me to drive you....ya know to sort it out??" Yep I actually had someone offer to drive me for an abortion.... after I told them I was pregnant and showed them a scan picture. At the time I was fuming but now it makes me laugh because although my life took a different route it doesn't mean it was a bad one. In fact I like this road it pretty darn tidy and without popping out a kid at the ripe old age of 19 I would never have thought to start a blog or take up sewing again, or become addicted to all things crafty!

Much Love



P.S Please don't be too outraged my my friend suggesting I have an abortion when I told people I was pregnant I got of lot of obnoxious comments thrown in my direction!

  1. I think you are very mature for your age and suspect that you always have been so having your li'l man so early was a very good move on your part. You have so much fun to look forward to in your future.

    1. Haha I am very mature Im basically an old lady, give me a bag full of knitting and a cup of cocoa over a night in a club any day!

  2. Great quote, they look amazing too. I had my first at 17, 2nd at 19, 3rd and 21, I had many people turn their noses up and talk behind my back but I'm so happy I had my children while I was young, more time to spend with them 😊 I became very 'if you don't like it you can f**k off' 😂 I love my life!!!

    1. Yay for young mums! well you seem like a pretty well rounded person so I wont stress about the future! My biggest bug bear is that I don't tend to think people take me as seriously because I'm a young mum? I think a lot of people make assumptions when they shouldn't! I'm just as qualified as any other woman who's had a baby. x
