firstly if you haven’t heard of the creative pep talk podcast, from which this book originated, i highly recommend you check it out. also, a few years back i did an interview with andy which you could have a read of too.

onto the book! creative pep talk is basically a visual representation of the podcast, one which you can pick up any time to look and be inspired, motivated or distracted by. like pretty much everything andy does its full of colour and love and wants to help you be the best you can be.

collaged tangram alpabet | new work

my work by

collaged tangram alphabet by laura redburn

in a bit of a spur of the moment type situation, i recently decided to make something i’ve wanted to make for years. a collaged¬†tangram alphabet! i’m obsessed with alphabet books (i collect some) and pretty much anything alphabet related so this one really has been a long time coming. it was so fun to make and definitely fits my style very well i think. i’m¬†actually in the progress of making another alphabet related thing, but i have bigger plans for that.

a colourful 24 hours in poole

out & about by

view from travelodge in poole, dorset

travelodge room key

this time last monday i was on my way to poole. despite train delays and being ravenously hungry i was excited to go somewhere new and explore a bit. i rarely get the chance to go ‘away’ thanks to being poor but i do absolutely love going on little adventures to new places. i know dorset a little as i lived in bridport for a few months many years ago and visited weymouth and portland many a time when i was a littlun. i’m sure i’ve¬†got a photo of me somewhere near portland bill lighthouse in a cute polka dot co-ord.

travelodge comfy cushions

anyway!¬†i¬†thought¬†i’d¬†share a ‘colourful 24 hours in poole’ post as that’s …pretty much my thing. my soul seeks out colour wherever¬†i¬†am. it was thanks to¬†travelodge*¬†that¬†i¬†got to do this trip and stay over, so shout out to them for making this happen!¬†i¬†loved the blue theme of the¬†room and had quite a view too!¬†it’s¬†location was perfect – right opposite¬†poole¬†train station, near some water and close to town too.

i¬†dropped off my things, had a quick look around the room and of course dove onto the super comfy king size bed. to, you know, test it out. being a budget hotel, the amenities are obviously not going to be¬†luxury, but you have what you need and the staff really are super friendly and happy to help with any requests. like most tourists, especially in an area like this, you mostly just use it as a place to rest and sleep after you’re done exploring.
