Help Me Choose a Name… Please!

I have decided to change the name of my creative business. For those of you who aren’t aware, in addition to my writing work I also make fascinators. It is my passion and I am taking the daring move to try to make it into a source of income as well.

To date, I have always operated under the name of this blog, a hectic life. However, it has come to my attention that this name doesn’t really fit as a business name.

As much as it scares me as I am a shy little critter, I haveĀ decided to use my name in my business title. However, I just can’t choose which of the following sounds best.

Please vote for your favourite. Your response means a lot to me! Thanks!


Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Move

My kids are ALWAYS on the move. They don’t stop. It is exhausting but I love it.

The photo I have chosen for this challenge is of my son at BMX. It really sums him up. He is on his bike, seeking thrills, every chance he gets.

Travel Theme: Rivers

I have shown you many pictures of the river my family enjoys on holidays. We have an onsite caravan situated a few metres from the river bank in a wonderful, sleepy, picturesque caravan park.

For this week’s theme I have picked another photo of this river.
