Probably for different reasons than you created it for but I could do with this stuck on my wall! x

What a cute illo--and ain't that the truth!

Kyla said...

Lovely illustration, and very true words.

Cara said...

Definitely. I think they feel so worth doing because of the massive reward at the end of it.

Ah, beautiful!
Hmm... do I agree... I'd like to say no, that sometimes sweet, easy things happen. But looking back on life I would say that nearly ALL the best things come with some kind of cost/ sacrifice/ work. Parenthood, love, physical challenges.

Maybe, for me, 'the best things in life are always the most complex'. Ups and downs, thrills and boredom, frustrations and fantasticness (a word... ish...), simple one minute and hard the next. Honestly, the illustration is so lovely I'd want it in my house whatever it said! xx

totally.

Laura, yes! I think this is something that can resonate with lots of different people for different reasons! x

fritha strickland said...

oh gosh Jane what a strong woman you are! Well done on all you have achieved and for them being the best and hardest things! xx

fritha strickland said...

Hattie yes I think you might be right, I don't agree 100% with this quote as sometimes life seems very easy and wonderful and complex would be a more fitting word. However it doesn't sound as catchy ;) xx

Lucy I know what you mean, I don't want to be like 'everything good needs to be worked for' its kind of goes against my whole 'free spirited' kind of idealism..but actually when I think of it in relation with the things I think are the best - Wilf but also sleep deprivation hardest, Tom - best but also we drive each other mental - hardest, illustration - best, working all hours and not getting much ££ = hardest ;) xx

Totally. Totally yes. And aside from the sentiment - your illustration of it is so beautiful!
