Virtual Assistant

– Capable – Caring – Creative – 

My name is Elaine

and I am here to help.  I am a Virtual Assistant based in central Shropshire

I believe that modern life needs more colour

and I also believe that creativity can really help with managing stress, relaxing and becoming more confident.  I have learned a lot along the way and have more to learn to, so please join me on my journey

Here are some of the things I love

and the key areas of my blog

Love of Colour

I adore colour whether it be in nature, fabric, textiles or the world around me

Love of Creativity

I adore making things, particularly crafts, and I drop spindle spin, crochet, dress make, enjoy adult colouring and lots more

Love of Life

I do love life and enjoy experiencing the world around me and observing the comings and goings,  I might even occasionally get a bit philosophical!

Love of Learning

I have a thirst for knowledge whether it be formal studies (like with the Open University) or learning the skills for building my website or new crafts

Love of Nurturing

I take pleasure out of being as mindful as I can be and both encouraging others and finding the best ways to look after myself

Encouragement for Grown-ups Learning New Creative Skills
