Cut, draw, tat ~ weekly vlog


These sleepy faces ^_^


I feel like I might be finally getting out of this awful creative shit hole I've been stuck in forever so, thumbs up.

It was time to finally sort out my hair. Too long, too brown.


Thank you William ^_^

Christmas designs for redbubble

My mum asked me to design some Christmas cards for her and I thought I'd add them to my redbubble as well. What made me think to do it was that I thought they'd make good stickers. Redbubble often has deals on buying multiple stickers and I think the pudding, tree and sprout especially would look really cute as die cut stickers on presents or cards or something (sorry pom poms and fairy lights, I'm sure you'd be a cute sticker too). I ended up putting the designs on most of the available products though and they make for some pretty cute shirts and mugs too (if I do say so myself ^_^)

It always feels weird posting Christmas stuff in November (I very much try to ignore Christmas until at least the start of December) but if you're getting things made and posted you sometimes need to start a little early, what can ya do *shrugs*

I got a surface pro ~ weekly vlog

I have been sharing a computer with Will for the past 10 years and while it wasn't that bad it wasn't ideal and it also wasn't in the room where I work and basically I wanted a laptop but couldn't get one and then I could get one and now I've got one and it's magical ^_^

p.s. don't forget I have a sale on in my Etsy shop during November :)

Cheerleader by Stella Jang

Sometimes you just have to take screenshots of a kpop video and put them on your blog. I saw this video for the first time last night and I love it. The look of the drawing is really cool, the colours are so bright and good, her heavily auto-tuned voice sounds awesome and there's a good message in there too. I only need you, but money would be nice also. It's very relatable I feel. I also like how it's two sided, they both want to provide for the other. I like it a lot.

Also, this is my first blog post using my new surface pro. I talk about it in my vlog this week (which will be posted soon) so I won't go over it again here but it's making me feel really productive and I'm finding it super useful. I haven't bought a keyboard yet though and this one keeps changing my words and I feel like the formatting of this post might be a bit off but that's ok. I'm sure I'll get used to it ^_^

Here's the video, it has English subtitles which is a nice bonus. I highly recommend it, it cheers me right up :)

Rats and an Etsy Sale ~ Weekly Vlog


A letter from the rats // craft activities for relaxing //(´ ω `♡)


This photo of the rats is so accurate of rats, or at least of our rats currently (they're still young). They earn their collective term of 'mischief' real good ^_^

Crochet sale!


Through November all the crochet items in my Etsy shop have 30% off! In the new year I'm going to be concentrating on illustrated pieces and I'd love to move these crochet items on to new homes (and out of my studio!).
I chose November for the sale so people outside the UK should have plenty of arrival time for Christmas. On December 1st the sale ends and I'll be letting the listings for these items expire in the new year so this is official last chance warning. Crochet ended up being work by accident which might sound weird but it's true and I've been thinking a lot this year about what I really want to be doing and I've been kind of fazing out crochet but it's time to properly put an end to these pieces. I'm sure I'll use crochet at some point in the future for things that count as work but I want it to be a hobby again because it turned into a chore that I didn't look forward to which is dumb because crochet can be relaxing and also really creative and clever.
So grab yourself a bargain and also help me out with clearing space and buying food ^_^

A slow week ~ weekly vlog


This past week was so nothing-y but didn't drag and didn't go by quickly, it just kind of happened but didn't really leave any news or impressions on me. But there are always rats so here is my vlog and a few photos from the week.
