New resource page is up!

Last week I asked my email subscribers what kind of content would they like to see here in the future. Your response was overwhelming (a big thank you is in order – I think I’ve got back to most of you by now but apologies if I missed someone!). One of the most common requests I received was to hear more about which plugins, sample packs, books, websites, tools and so on I like to use in my craft.

To answer your call, I have created a new page that lists the things that I use and love the most. I have also included comments for each resource on why I like it/how I am using it.

I’ll be adding more too as time goes by, so you may want to bookmark the page and visit every now and then.

Have a look.

Discovering Perfect

This is something I keep coming back to again and again. I run into it in my own pursuits, my peers and the precious people who hit me up.

It’s an illusion, a false mindset.Continue Reading
