Have you ever been through a busy patch where at the end of it your house is one big mess?! Don’t you ever feel like closing your eyes and summon a domestic fairy to rush to your side? Fancy that extra hand? Oh yeah!!! Big time!!! It is nice to dream a bit. This is how the idea for my new drawing came to mind. A sweet domestic fairy with her duster and bucket to remind us to smile, take a breather and proceed with our housework Bit by bit we’ll restore order! The house will be spic-and-span again!! Hope you like the sweet fairy You can find this drawing in my shop here.
Summer is almost here though the weather seems to have a different idea!! It is windy again and the colour of the sky is orange grey. . . so tiring to look at! Looking forward to blue skies again!!
Wishing you a lovely weekend . . .it’s almost here people!!
I haven’t been much in touch lately. Had an extremely busy spell!! And more busy weeks to come! But my weeks were varied. I had to do work on paintings, took part in an exhibition, read some really interesting stuff, worked on my studies and at least enjoyed some nice warm sun in the process
To make up for my absence I made sure to find some time to draw a new character for all of you to enjoy! ‘Dare to be different’!! You can download this freebie here. Hope you like it It is so nice to celebrate what makes us unique and special. I really admire those individuals who are not scared to be different and be happy with who they are. I think this is a different form of creativity. We are all equipped with so many great qualities that it would be such a waste to imitate and replicate lives of others. What makes you special? Let us dedicate the next few weeks to focus on what makes us beautifully different.
I wish you all a good week. May it be positive and bright! Don’t forget to take some time away from your busy schedule and think about what makes you special
I’ve had yet another busy week and I also focused a bit on organizing and decluttering my mind because my to-do list is increasing exponentially!! Feeling overwhelmed kind of works against you so it was time to stop, calm down, move back, and write down everything! How do you tackle feeling overwhelmed? I have stumbled across a blog which suggests a simple and effective way how to organize your week and plan around your different life areas. If you’re feeling slightly out of control and somewhat lacking behind just have courage and go through these steps which will slowly get you back on track I thank the author for sharing this guide
This week I managed to fit in a few minutes to make a bookmark. Honestly, I always run out of bookmarks . . . I have so many types, my favourite being a metal angel . . . which has designs like a stencil . . .it is attached to a white chord. . . super cute I decided to make a corner bookmark this time. Just love these! You can dress them up however you like and they make cute handmade gifts for a teacher, a librarian, a bookworm friend there are many templates for these bookmarks. I followed a simple one which you can find here.
I used part of my digistamp ‘Hang in There‘, used small wooden pegs, a ribbon, a printed quote and embossed the bottom part for some texture! It is important to keep your decorations as flat as possible so that your book can close properly. It only took me a few minutes to make so do try it out
How are you? Hope you’re all well and having a nice weekend! Here we had terrible weather, soooo windy, rainy, and still quite cold. But today it is seems to be more stable with some occasional sunny moments! So that’s not too bad!
This week I’m sharing with you a new drawing I made for a friend of mine who will get married soon. We had her hen night and it was such a wonderful evening Sooo enjoyable ‘Roaring Twenties’ was the theme!! Such a lovely way to spend a girl’s night out together wearing our flapper dresses, boas, pearls and bling! Don’t you think it was such a lovely fashion style? I think it really flattered women! It is nice to feel sophisticated and elegant . . . simply enjoying being a girl
You can find my drawing in my shop and this is the card I made. I’m also sharing a pic from the day feathers it is! hihi
Hope you’re well The weekend is almost here! Hurray!! I look forward to rest a bit as I’ve had quite a busy week.
Today I want to share with you a card I’ve made for a friend of mine who has just had her second baby. . . sweet Julia The character I designed represents a happy, well-groomed mummy who’s gone out for a nice stroll with her pram Blissful moments with a newborn You can find the digi in my shop. I really enjoyed working on this card It has been quite some time since I had time to indulge in some card making so it was nice to play around with some items I have in my stash! Don’t you just love going through your supplies and just let them inspire you??

I’d like to share with you two new characters which you can find in my shop. At the moment coffee and books are a BIG part of my life! And not any light reading! Books are piling up in my study and it is just amazing how one idea takes you to a million other in no time! The same goes for coffee cups!! With studying come the many frequent trips to the fridge and this gave me the idea for one of the drawings
My other work is about coffee on Sunday . . . particularly in the morning! Do you find that coffee on Sunday morning somehow tastes much better? I think this is because it has no connotation with work or with studying and it can be accompanied by some laziness in bed! Ohh that’s such a plus!!
I wish you all a very good week! May it be positive, bright and fun!! I will be having a gallery on my website soon so feel free to upload your work using Penny Blossom images! I’ll be happy to link it back to your own blogs
