A little reflection

Hi everyone, 
So this year I've been super bad at updating my blog, and this is something I'm aware of and so I'm trying to put together a schedule to make sure I post more and share some interesting things with you, not just about me all the time :)

So first up, is there anything you'd like me to cover more of, perhaps do a post answering some questions on? Just let me know!

I wanted to share how I've been feeling recently, and with my 25th birthday fast approaching (sob) I realised this last few weeks that I've never felt more content and happy.
I'm now working for myself full time, and yes, I am still broke and the money pretty much goes back into the business, but its starting to work - thanks to you lovely people who all believe in me too.
I'm maintaining a much better work/social life and as per my new years resolution I am trying more new things and taking more spontaneous breaks!
It's funny really because goals I set for myself just two years ago I'm smashing! So I'm in the process of re-evaluating and setting new goals, and that feels good to know, and to say.

Being a freelancer is hard, I won't lie and I'm in tears sometimes and can't stop grinning other times! Luckily I have my lovely boyfriend who helps me out so very much is very good at leveling me out when I go off on one.
A huge thankyou to everyone that has supported my little business and me so far in my journey, we've got a long way to go together yet but we will sure get there :)

holiday snap

This is a little snap of me from our little break in Fuerteventura last week, it was a very much needed, blissful holiday and we got to do some really fun things - after a weekend of insane deadlines it was just what the doctor ordered.

I have also been working on looooads of new work that I'm not allowed to show anyone for the time being, but here are some illo's that I don't think you've seen yet :)

This wee fellow was to cheer myself up between hard deadlines :)

I have lots up my sleeve for this year and with proper planning I hope that I can pull it off :)

Sneaky Peek

So if you follow me on twitter/facebook you'll know that last week me and the amazing Holly Booth hooked up to drink tea and take some photo's of my brand NEW products! 
They launched at Spring Fair a week or too back, and they will be at BCTF in April too :D
So although all the photo's haven't been edited yet Holly dropped me a cheeky little look at a couple of pics this morning!
I'm too excited not to share so, here's our little peek! :)


See? Isn't it exciting!!
Look forward to showing the range off when they are ready - Not long to wait now :D
