...

I like the way you speak, soft and low, like a whisper.

ONWARDS AND UPWARDS.

I'm so excited.

I went into my old college today to see my old tutor, Tony. My mum works in the library there and they often talk about me and what I'm up to, and Tony said I should come in and have a chat to him, so I did.
We discussed the possibility of me being a graduate volunteer or something like that. And I was very up for it and filled in the forms right then and there.
Basically, I'm going to be sitting in on crits and being an extra voice, and helping check through dissertations (I'm a bit of a grammar nazi) and whatnot. Just helping tutors with things. They also want me to show my work as well and talk a bit about what I do/have done. In return, I get something to put on my CV and I get to use the facilities!
It's nice because I know a few people there, and it means I get to be around creative people. As well as someone rather beautiful...


Gosh, I really feel like I'm on a good path right now.

ADVICE ZINE.

I was asked my Ella, in my old illustration class, if I wanted to do some work for the zine they're making to raise funds for their final year show. The theme is "advice". I was so pleased to be remembered and asked, and I can't wait to see everyone else's scribbles. Here is some of my advice..











...

perhaps I shouldn't though, as he looked very similar to my ex.

DUVET DAY.

Winds of up to 100mph (160km/h) have hit parts of the UK as a storm moves across Wales and southern England.
Watch a video of the some of the damage the wind has caused here!

The best thing to do while storms are running around causing havoc, is to snuggle under a duvet and eat cakes and ice cream and watch nice films.
This is what I'm planning on doing tomorrow. I have made some pretty cakes for the occasion, sorry for the poor quality photo off my phone! I'll take a better one when my camera has charged!

WOOLY HATS WOOLY SOCKS.

Good god there are some good hats around this year!! I love my new panda-face hat <3




POSITIVITY.

I feel so good at the moment. Life is picking up a bit.

It's strange because I remember posting about how I felt I didn't have many friends down here, and all my friends are busy doing exciting things and I'm not... and since then I feel like this has all changed a bit.
I've been so busy since Halloween time, seeing friends, doing nice things, thinking up new projects and things to make! And I met up with a friend yesterday who seems to have his head totally screwed on and he is doing really well for himself, and he wants me to do some illustration work for him! I'm so happy and excited to receive the brief and get scribbling!

Also, I'm feeling a really strong urge to look after my friends. I feel strong enough to support those in need, and I just want to spoil them all with cakes and cute things and hugs.

I have quite a few things in the pipeline and I'm really looking forward to doing them all and showing you the results.

Speaking of which, I better start my Christmas factory ASAP! 6 weeks tomorrow!!

SLEEPOVER CLUB.

Here are a few snaps of my room.
I tidied up and made a bed on the floor as Kayley is coming over tonight for a sleepover! We're going to eat cakes and popcorn, and drink tea, and watch soppy films. I am so excited for it. I don't have many good girlfriends so I really appreciate the ones I do have!
Look how cosy my room is :) we're definitely going to be cosy cats!

1. & 2. One of my nicest corners - some of my favourite children's storybooks (including Where The Wild Things Are and Thumbelina), my lovely orange horses (one of which really does need a bit of restoration), and my last birthday card from my best friend - it has a cupcake on it because he knows how much I like cakes :) hehe.
3. My favourite place in the whole world - my bed!
4. The chocolate buns I made for scoffing tonight :)
5. The buns, Big Ted, my Max costume (which keeps scaring me at night, it really just looks like someone standing in my room in the half-darkness) and the cosy bed I made for Kayley.
6. Another angle where you can see most of my room.
7. My sofa with lots and lots of cushions and animals and things :)

BACK IN TIME.

Today I travelled back in time and went for afternoon tea with my mother. I bought some fabric for some up and coming projects, and then I came home and played with my cats - Phoebe, El Hefe and Kimiko.
I love those kids.











REMEMBER REMEMBER..

the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot.

It was the most loveliest evening.

CHOICES.

When there's a choice, always choose both.

HALLOWEEN 100.

I don't have much to say for my 100th post, so here are a few photographs from Halloween.
