Healing Art Photography and Fine Art Gifts

I believe in the healing power of nature. If we take a moment to immerse ourselves in an image of nature we will feel rejuvenated, renewed and revived. Studies have shown that what we look at not just affects our mood, but also how we relate to others and our attention to detail. So if your feeling stressed, run down or just deserve a break, look at the images under "Healing Art" and immerse yourself in them.
My new line of photo gifts enables you to have Healing Art with you wherever you go and also to give as gifts to those who may not be into wall art.

The photogifts include watches, clocks, clothing, hip flasks,keyrings, usb sticks, phone covers, ipad covers,kindle covers, cushions, cards, stickers and so much more. Click on the tab that says Photo Gifts to see them all.

I send out an e-newsletter to anyone who wants one, including a free monthly image to use as a screensaver or desktop image to help in your healing and to lower your overall stress levels. I also let you know what I am up to and include any specials or coupons. To subscribe please send me an email at with "Subscribe" in the subject line.

Blog a day for a month

Today I accepted a challenge to blog every day for a month!

Yes a big one for me, but we'll give it a go.

Do you ever have days you wished you didn't have to get out of bed?

I do, somedays like yesterday, life is a huge struggle. I get up and put on my smiley mask and head out, but inside I am a crumbling mess. Everything people say or do either stops the crumbling a bit or exacerbates it enormously. I know in my head that I am being oversensitive, but it feels so real. I try to find things to do that I enjoy, but even that is hard sometimes. Yesterday I went for a swim, which helped, but then I felt miserable because I was swimming alone!!!

What do you do on days like this?

I have a list to remind me of what makes me feel better on days like this.

1. Put on some lively music
2. Go for a walk
3. Take some photos
4.Visit a freind
5. Play games on the computer or talk to someone on social media.
6. If all else fails, eat chocolate and then have a nap!!!

I hope this will help you on days when you feel down too.
