snapshots of my week – 9th february

i seriously can’t get over the fact it’s almost mid-way through february already! i feel like i’ve not done much this year yet, but it often happens because depression seems to hit me harder in the winter months, and because of that i feel much less productive. i try to work through it, but sometimes it just does. not. happen.

i feel like if i could get some illustration work during these months it’d be good because i’d be more distracted to think or worry about anything else. yes, i know i could do personal work, but when you feel really unmotivated and putting yourself down over every little thing it’s kind of hard! luckily, i’m not a person that compares herself to others (well, obviously a little), so i guess that’s one less thing off my mind! ha. you gotta take the good where you can get it!

i found this lovely swing/smock style dress in the week, i had actually gone to get a refund, but i saw this and did an exchange instead, whoops! but i just fell for that super pretty floral pattern and couldn’t resist. it’ll likely appear in an outfit post soon!

one thing i have been doing, is being busy making the shapes for necklaces and brooches! they take a couple days to dry, and because of time constraints this week i’ve not had time to sand & paint them yet, but i’m hoping to make some progress on this today, and take some photos on monday or tuesday. come out sun!

i had however made this test brooch the week before. i forgot to sand it before i painted it, but i kind of like the rough top edge, it looks like it’s been nibbled at! so hopefully these and more will be in the shop soon!

i finally tried the barry m gelly nail paint! i really like it. this shade is called orange (or satsuma), and i think it goes fantastically with my pale skin. also, it’s a very similar colour to my recently acquired wet n wild lipstick in purty persimmon. i’m really loving coral-ish orange-reds at the moment.

adding to my forever growing stationery collection, i couldn’t resist these cute cath kidston-esque notbooks for 69p for 3, especially as they have dotted and square paper in. for some reason i’ve never liked lined paper. am i the only one?
