Latest round-up

Categories Blog, News, Videos

One day I’m going to come up with a clever title for these round-ups. But not, apparently, today.

Prize Update

About a million years ago – OK, two months ago – I asked for name suggestions for my coaching service and offered a free consulting session for the winning name.

I got some wonderful ideas but none of them felt quite right to me. I’ve been brooding away on it ever since & have finally hit on the right name. The sales page for ‘Pertinent Questions’ will be up as soon as I’ve finished writing it.

I’m going to award the consulting prize to Amber Dawn for her suggestion ‘Knotty Fixes’. Even though I haven’t used it as the final name, I utterly adored this and I’m going to nab it for my sales copy. Well done, Amber.

Thanks to everyone else for their awesome suggestions: every single one of you helped so much with my tortuously slow thought process and I am deeply grateful. And I’m sorry that it took so long to update you all, I really did need to sit with it for this long.

Customer Love Update

Wonderful stuff has been happening with Customer Love.

David Crandall’s guest post, ‘What Is A Customer?’ was an eye-opener for me. I also enjoyed ‘Who’s Got Time For Customer Love?’by Sandi Faviell Amorim from Deva Coaching.

I found Sue Mitchell’s hour-long interview with Customer Love founder, LaVonne Ellis, deeply inspiring.

People have been loving hard on their peeps. Here are my pick of the offers so far:

Get free help with numbers from my favourite maths tutor, Colin Beveridge. OK, so he’s the ONLY maths tutor I know, but he’s still my favourite.

Melissa Dinwiddie from A Creative Life is offering free Sandbox Sessions throughout November. If you’d like a bit of accountability while you work on Your Wonderful Thing, this will be right up your street. Melissa is a delightful, kind and interesting person and I’m sure she’d be a joy to work with.

My Stuff

Thanks to Helen Birch from the wonderful drawdrawdraw blog for featuring my Diary Project drawings. Turns out that Helen & I have a shared love of drawing on envelopes.

Don’t forget you can still sign up for the Within Limits class that I’m teaching with Tara Swiger on Wednesday 10th November.

Cool stuff from around the web

Pretty by Kate Makkai is 3 minutes of absolutely astounding, powerful, hard-hitting slam poetry that every woman needs to see. ‘Slam poetry?’, I hear you say. Yep. Just trust me on this one and watch it. There is one swear word in it.


This week I also fell head over heels in love with comedian and ace pianist, Tim Minchin. Most of his stuff is entirely NSFW, so again, please don’t click if that bothers you. I should also warn you that this is ridiculously, insanely catchy – I’ve been singing it all week.

Enjoy your weekend, my lovelies…


I am an artist & purveyor of obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.

  1. Ah, Tim Minchin. I went to see him perform live last year and it was one of the best nights out ever. Have you come across ‘The Good Book’ yet?

    @Ingrid, Thanks Inny, I’ve not seen The Good Book yet. He’s playing Cardiff the day after my birthday, I think tickets may be required.

  2. First, thanks for the mention! That’s some pretty awesome Peer Love going on along with the #CustomerLove. :)

    Second, thanks for the awesome videos! I didn’t know about either of them, and I am SO glad I do now!
