About Not Copper Armour

Creativity & Slow-Living

This blog came to life during my Photography degree in a very basic form as an online portfolio. It was a way to keep my hand in with ‘creating’, especially when the course ended. That was until I began juggling full time work & a Teaching degree, I craved a creative release from the routine I found myself in.

For me, my one true love is photography. With a university degree under my belt, hired by bigger corporate & smaller companies to create their imagery plus many teaching hours on the subject; it has meant I always want to pass on my affection for photography & creativity in general.


The Creative Pause

After securing a 9-5 office job role, this position over time developed into a monotonous daily pattern that sparked a really bad patch in my mental health. So many hours of my week were spent on someone else & pushing their business forward that there was barely any time for myself, priorities or those I care about. There was no time for a full recharge both mentally & physically. I wanted to escape this pattern & give myself the creative freedom I craved through establishing new routines.

I want to continue my journey & share it with others who also need that permission slip to be selfish, create time for creativity plus inject a bit more joy into daily habits.

we’re allowed a permission slip to have a pause from our busy everyday

Creativity is a form of self-care & expression that can be all our own. You don’t have to be super smart or even a dedicated artist, there is an outlet for everyone. Creativity is not just art related it can be making fresh connections with whatever you’re passionate about regardless of the sector you find yourself in, it can be found in the smallest of moments & gestures. Having that "thing" that makes you smile can be a big help in combating the grind of daily life that we can all feel.

Creativity is a necessity, it can give you the inspiration to push yourself & give you an escape that is all your own.
