New Year’s Resolutions

We are half way through January and New Year’s resolutions are starting to slip. As if we aren’t feeling bad enough about ourselves, The Guardian reveals “When you’re sitting, you’re one step above being dead’. Oooooo harsh!

If you are looking for a new positive mental attitude this year give her next workshop a go and challenge yourself to some graffiti art!
