Loving the Creativity


One of the reasons for our move to Cornwall was to be surrounded by amazing natural beauty.  There’s no doubt that where we live now has fuelled our creativity and inspired has to come up with more adventurous products and pursuits.  From walks on the beach to wandering around our garden, there’s inspiration everywhere we go. It’s helped us both settle into our work routine, and in fact, it’s hard to really know where life and work separate as we {Read More}

Moved To Cornwall

Moving to Cornwall

One of my strongest and earliest memories is standing outside my grandparents home with my Nan in London saying goodbye to my Grandad.  I used to think it was a dream until I told my Dad about it and he was so surprised as he said I was just a toddler about 2 yrs old.  Nonetheless, that’s what I remember.  Apparently, it was when my Grandad moved from London to Cornwall.  His brother and his family already lived down there {Read More}

4 Reasons Why You Should Get in Front of the Camera


I know I drive my family crazy sometimes with taking photos when we’re all together.  It’s what I do.  I love photos.  I love capturing all the times we’re together and also those fun “no one knows you’re snapping” candid shots!  In recent years I’ve been very aware that I too need to be in some of the photos.  I’m a digital scrapbooker and memory keeper!  And, of course, I love the creative process of putting all my photos together {Read More}

Diane Rooney Designs

As we come into this new season of Spring, so my life is slowly changing and moving forward.  I honestly feel like I’m blooming for the first time in a long time.  Most days for me are filled with love and laughter.  It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so relaxed and happy.  I’m not talking about the general niggles of every day life but the overall feeling.  Are you happy?  Are you sad?  Are you depressed?  Are you {Read More}

Hello March!


I’m happy to say hello to March!    

It Started as a Dream


There’s just a few days left to sign up for Marie Forleo’s 2014 Business School online course.  I make no apologies for talking about it yet again on my blog or that I’m an affiliate.  I don’t take it lightly.  B-School is as good as everyone says.  It does deliver.  And it’s a game changer.  Yes, it’s an investment.  Yes, it needs careful consideration as does any financial investment.  If you’re serious about wanting to work from home doing what {Read More}

Pushing Through


It’s almost 4yrs since I lost my Dad.  I’ve been thinking about him more than usual.   As such, I thought I’d share a little bit more of my story with you. Back in 1980 I was a 16yr old looking forward to leaving school and embarking on a new adventure.  In all honesty I didn’t know what I wanted out of life.  I knew I didn’t want to stay at boarding school any more.  I loved my friends.  They {Read More}

Today is the Day


Just a little reminder that we only ever truly have today.  Tomorrow isn’t promised to us.  I know it’s easier said than done sometimes, but, we do truly need to live in the moment.  Celebrate life.  Look at things with a positive outlook.  To be grateful for what we have. To be kind, thoughtful and loving.  To forgive.  To let go. If you have big dreams or even small dreams, hopes and wishes, you need to take action and make {Read More}
