This is your life, please don’t hold back

This handmade typewritten print reminds you that life is fleeting and you should do more of what makes you happy. Put it somewhere you can see it every day and use it as pep talk. Or gift it to a friend who needs lifted up.


Perfect for giving someone an incentive to go out and follow what lights them up.


This is an A5 hand-typed uplifting poem on luxurious flower-embedded cotton or Lokta plant paper.


The cotton paper with yellow flowers comes in a luxurious dark red envelope with gold lining and the Lokta plant paper with lilac cornflowers comes in a classy light green envelope with gold lining. Both are sealed with a crescent moon and stars-shaped wax stamp and dried flower embellishment. The whole effect is decadent, special and harks back to years gone by. It has that “vintage vibe” that so many people adore. 


Because of the nature of the materials, each item is utterly unique. Colours and flowers may differ slightly from those in the photos. If you have a preference then message me and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.


The completed gift will be placed in a separate brown hard-backed envelope and posted to you.


The poem reads:


“This is your life.

Please don’t hold back.

Start filling up

the joy you lack.


Go be happy.

Don’t be bled dry

by work and folk

who make you cry.


Go a bit wild.

Take baths at lunch.

Or eat that cake

as breakfast munch.


Shake up routines.

Don’t be a slave.

Just say “No, thanks”.

Go on, be brave.


No need to do, 

things you don’t like.

Put your foot down.

Say “take a hike”.


Push the walls back 

as they close in.

Take a deep breath.

Find peace within.


Go with the flow,

let instinct lead.

Start to slow down

and take more heed.


Find what you love.

What takes its toll?

Follow the crumbs

left by your soul.”
