My First Live Portrait Event! ~ Dear Diary #13

Dear diary, On Wednesday I had my very own stall at a Christmas market, organised by a local school with a traditional Victorian theme. It was very sweet and festive! This is how my stall looked.

Scotland and Lake District Adventure ~ Dear Diary #11

Dear diary, A few weeks ago, Fraz and I went on an awesome weekend road trip! On Saturday morning we set off early and headed north across the border, and into Scotland.

Alongside are […]

I Stand No Chance of Growing Up // Dear Diary #7

Dear diary, Life is hard. And I often feel like I stand no chance of growing up; no chance of having a proper job, saving money, driving a car, being a responsible adult… I was in a weird place the other day; so I went for a long walk around Rudyard lake and put Fiona […]

Recent Creations // Dear Diary #6

Dear diary, I’ve been creating recently! First of all is a ‘junk journal’ with a witchy theme, that I made for a collaboration on Instagram. It’s a book with two signatures, each made with mismatched pieces of paper from various sources, including magazine pages, wrapping paper and envelopes. The cover is made from some repurposed […]

Hello Leek! Plus a Little Reflection // Dear Diary #5

So I just wanted to share a few images and show you how inspiration can be found in every part of life, even […]
