Postcard ‘When things are tough’


A postcard with some suggestions for when life feels a bit tough.

Sometime life feels complicated. Things don’t work out the way you hoped, the rain is pouring from the sky or maybe there’s just a bunch of grey clouds hanging around in your head. I think we all know that feeling. I made this postcard for exactly these moments. I wrote down a few suggestions that might not solve your problems, but hopefully they can make give you a little nudge of hope. Small things you can do to be kind to yourself, things that might even provide some comfort and ease. So feel free to order this postcard as a reminder for yourself, or for a person who could use it.

PS This postcard is also available in Dutch! You can find it here.


I originally drew this illustration with India ink and liquid water colour and finished the design digitally. It’s printed on nice and firm Biotop paper (which is made of wood leftovers!). The size is 10,5 x 15 cm, just like a ‘normal’ postcard. On the back there’s room for a lovely message and the address of the receiver.
