Hello lovelies,

Woweeee, March already, can’t quite believe it! I hope you are all having a brilliant start to 2017 and are enjoying this Spring weather (thank the heavens). 2017 for me hasn’t started off great with my Grampa passing and boyfriend going away for 6 months for work. Determined to keep the positive vibes strong though!

Also, apologies for the radio silence on the blog, if I am being honest it’s been a right old struggle making the time to post regularly, mainly due to the fact I am a one woman band and have to juggle lots of different things at once. Not to fear though, I have decided to actively make more effort in writing good content for my blog, as after all it’s fun to do and I have had a positive response from you lovely lot in the past with all your comments (thanks guys!).

Some musings as of late…

1//  Broadchurch is back. YAY! I’m sure “MillAR” isn’t too amused to be working alongside her grouchy partner in crime, but we all are!

broadchurch, itv, stv, david tennant,

2// I am really wanting to knuckle down and make some new art and possibly branch out with some new product launches. At the moment I am just trying to spend more time with pen to paper. ALTHOUGH, I am super keen to treat myself to an iPad Pro + Pen, I think my world would be turned upside down If I got one. This guy is insane! Should I, shouldn’t I? What’s your experience?

3// Currently enjoying #marchmeetthemaker challenge over on Instagram, started by Joanne Hawker as a way of getting to know the person behind the brand and get a behind the scenes glimpse. You have to post a picture everyday according to a theme e.g ‘workspace’, ‘how it’s made’, ‘post/mail’. Here are some of my pictures below…

home workspace, workspace, home office, work from home, working from home hygge, trees, green trees, watercolour painting, gouache painting, nature painting, wildlife painting, artwork, art, home art, art painting

jewellery making, jewelry making, bee necklace, bumble bee necklace, laser cut jewellery, laser cut jewelry, jewellery tools, jewelry tools, making necklaces, how to make a necklace

So that’s it for now, but I need your help! What blog posts would you like to be reading on my blog??
