Telegraph pole and wires from below. Blue sky.

Here are a few links for you for this week. I hope you enjoy them.

  • This video from the Sketchbook Skool blog, shows how artist Trevor Romain uses his art and creativity to help others.
  • New Tech City’s Bored and Brilliant project is starting soon in an attempt to help you detach from technology and be more creative.
  • Dale posted some beautiful winter photos on her blog this week. My favourite is the first one, but I love the contrast of colours and textures across the set.
  • Lisa Congdon writes about how to deal with overwhelm and why you can choose to take breaks and go easy on yourself.
  • Jen’s written about the ‘3 C’s’ that she’s focusing on in order to help her make good decisions in spite of having limited energy.
  • Another instagram account: Jesslyn shares photos of her lovely watercolours and calligraphy, including a new series of hand-lettered quotes that she writes using tea as ink.
