Quick update

Hello all!heron 1arranJust a quick update really, to say hi. I finished my course and passed everything so feeling good about that. The following week I had an actual job interview which I failed abysmally so lessons learned from that! More job hunting, more family drama and now I have a tooth infection which had swollen my face! So only now has the adrenalin stopped, and I can feel myself starting to relax a bit (albeit with a fat face, haha!)

Sailed on the water to an island (not on this boat mind you – this is just a photo I took) and wandered around beaches with mountains in the background…

and generally tried to avoid random strange guys like this……

So yeah, the last couple of weeks have been interesting to say the least, but right back at it now with job applications I guess. I haven’t been creating much, which I feel bad about, but hopefully things will get back on schedule this week!

Just a little catch up

*Rushes in with mince pies and mulled wine*

Hello, hello! I know I haven’t been around lately and I do apologise, but so much has been going on here….

Obviously Christmas preparations have been happening – we aren’t going anywhere over the festive season, just having a quiet one, but still…so much to do!

Also some serious family issues have arisen – not “bad” serious, but just stuff that needs to be dealt with. And one bit has, thank goodness. Go me and my assertive self!

But best of all…..I am painting and decorating the Room 0f Doom into something worthy of Pinterest (I hope!). I had a huge purge of stuff, and am painting the walls, and organising proper storage. The plan for the New Year is to do an art room tour (video) and work with doing regular videos covering various projects that I will show a step by step progress, so that you can do it too. I’m quite ok with sharing ideas – I’m not precious about techniques or hiding steps in case people copy it. Art changes and evolves everywhere, so if someone wants to try something, I believe in going for it. And believe me, I have a book load of projects to share 😀

So I don’t know if I’ll be posting before Christmas (which is only next week, but still) – I’m working on some tiny art just now, in a journal – and most is pretty personal involving other people so I can’t really show anything. However, come the New Year when everything settles down, I do want to be more open and sharing about expressing difficult issues in a creative way. I see quite a lot of it around the internet, but because I’m an introvert I kind of feel quite guarded about sensitive issues, but I see so many positive connections arise from sharing such things, it will be a nice challenge to grow with that.

Gosh so many plans….its lovely to have something to look forward to. Anyway, I just thought I would pop in and say hello. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas time (if you celebrate it – if not then I hope you have a lovely relaxing time with family and friends).

See you very soon xx
