"I turned my weakness into a creative outlet to help other women"
I am Lígia, the artist behind Oh! Good Idea.
In 2009, I found myself diagnosed with post-natal depression and chronic anxiety. Having battled mental health for the past decade, I learnt various therapy practices such as CBT and I became a certified trainee in Mindfulness and Meditation.
I use this knowledge to design compelling, positive and motivational planner stickers and stationery that work as an outlet to promote self- care, creativity, increase productivity and a feeling of self-worth and accomplishment. By using these meaningful and functional Planner Stickers, I help women to turn a dull or overwhelming task into a "Looking forward" event, so that they can find more time to do the things they love, spend time with their families and navigate calmly through their routines.
My own Mental Health is the reason that makes it possible for me to relate to your feelings and bring these coping techniques and skills through my art to help you in your journey.
And then there was Teedy
Teedy is my character, inspired by my daughter- a full of energy toddler, who loves pink! She is caring, funny and full of personality, which also means she is prone to drama (hence Teedy's crown)!
Teedy is a product of love. She is a reflection of ME and my World. She is inspired not only by little daughter, but she is charismatic as my other two children too. And all the motivation and mental health understanding she shows, it's a reflection of me and my own struggles, wins and lessons whilst battling my invisible battle.
