When Pickle Pie said they wanted to create a personalised print for me of all the special things in my life, I jumped at the chance.
“Just send us over a list of ten things you love,” they told me.
Easy peasy. I love loads of things - jaffa cakes, hob nobs, mint choc chip ice-cream…
So then I tried to thing of ten things that weren’t just sweets and cakes and suddenly it was quite a lot harder. Have you ever thought about the things that you love? The little things that bring you joy? It’s an interesting exercise.
I managed to come up with a list in the end that wasn’t overly food focussed, and here is my print. They even did the writing in peacock colours for me:
I really enjoyed thinking about the things that make me happy, and like the fact that sat on my desk, it serves as a useful reminder to me to do more of the things I love.We can all do with remembering now and again can’t we?
If I had any criticism, it would be that I’d rather not have had the line of advertising at the bottom. It’s such a personal thing, that I think it spoils it a little bit to have something so impersonal included so prominently.
All in all though, a very lovely print, and something that would make a lovely present.
What ten things would you have on your list?
