Most materials have been sourced from a unique birthday card sent to me. All beads, etc were on the front of a card in the shape of a fluffy bluish handbag, the handle of which is pretend leather.

Mercifully, I have been lucky enough never to seek professional help with mental health issues but I have immense sympathy for those who have and continue to do so. I think it is fabulous that mental health awareness has been at the forefront of campaigns in recent years and the Samaritans, I believe, are literally a life saver. To be able to receive help and encouragement from a stranger with no judgement must bring a real sense of relief and comfort. I hope this campaign highlights peoples' on going mental turmoil and, in doing so, brings hope that there is help out there and they are not alone, that there are people who care.
