• I am an artist, mother of four children and an advocate for children's emotional health. I know that the words children say to themselves are incredibly important and I also know that, as a mother, I play a significant role in influencing those words so that they may become positive and genuine.  These carefully created, hand illustrated cards are designed to:


    • Help your child establish a supportive belief system, allowing them to develop confidence and a healthy dose of self esteem.


    • Promote a dialogue between yourself and your child, as you guide them through the meaning of each card.


    • Provide insight for you as a parent.  We know as parents, that younger children don’t always have the words to express how they’re feeling.  The cards are a vehicle for self expression, offering a glimpse into what they are thinking and feeling.


    • Introduce children to art and art interpretation.  Many of the designs require thought and a little bit of critical thinking, both very useful skills.

    The illustrated card set has been carefully curated, to help your child on their journey to becoming their authentic self.



    This collection includes a set of 21 cards, A6 in size.  Included in the cards is one affirmation, stating 'I am loved', where you have the option of adhering a family photo or an illustration from your child.  There is also a summary card included.


    The cards are 350gsm, which means they're strong and bend resistant. They're coated on both sides, providing a durable, tactile and silky finish.  The finish allows them to be lightly and gently wiped with a damp cloth, suitable for even the littlest of hands.


    The cards come packaged in a hand-finished box, so that you can easily transport your affirmations around.
