Creativity Creates Calm


When I am undergoing stressful times, one way I soothe and find peace is to do something totally unrelated to work, with a pleasing final result. It used to be making cards.

Now, before you ask me to show you some photos, let me first stick in my disclaimer – plants often die on me.
