    Feeling Happy & Inspired

    I guess it seems kind of cheesy to sit and write about feeling happy. But it’s the truth. I feel very happy at the moment. In fact, probably the happiest I’ve ever felt. I recently wrote a blog post about Building a Life I love and the response I received was amazing. The fact that people I don’t even know are genuinely happy for me honestly means so much!

    I wrote in my previous post about how I walked away from a job that made me miserable and now I work a totally stress free job and it’s the best feeling ever. It’s amazing how our mindset can really have an impact on so many areas of our lives. I’ve always been a creative person … I have a degree in Graphic Design and I love to make things. I’m feeling really inspired at the moment and I’m really enjoying spending my spare time making handmade crafts. Above is a watercolour card that I made today. I had so much fun just sat messing around with watercolours and stamps and seeing what I could create. I honestly feel so blessed to be in a place at the moment where everything just seems to be working out.

    For years I’ve wanted to open an Etsy shop and really focus on creating and doing what I love and at the moment I feel like I’m in a place where I can actually make this happen. I’m doing a lot of planning behind the scenes and really thinking about which direction I want to go. In the meantime I’ve created a 2nd Instagram account for all of my creative adventures. If you want to follow along then you’ll find me at CharlotteShares_Handmade .

    I have so many ideas and I can’t wait to start working on the next chapter of Charlotte Shares!

    Thanks for reading!
