April 10, 2015


So I know I've been slacking on my posts recently, and trust me, I do feel bad for leaving my lovely readers out in the cold, so instead of continuously writing planner reviews (which I must admit, have been declining as I have started to control myself over my planner purchases), I've decided to incorporate other arty farty aspects of my daily life as well.

For starters, if you follow me on Instagram (which I update every one or two days), you'll know that I've been taking part in the #ListersGottaList challenge by the lovely ResetGirl (@theresetgirl, check her out!). So in order to keep this blog alive, I'll post some of my entries on here to keep you guys up to date with what I've been doing and to allow those that doesn't have an instagram account, to view and read about it here. I'll even throw in some details of the entry that won't be posted up on Instagram (because really, ain't nobody got time to read a full entry post on IG).

But before I start on that, here's a few snapshots to get the ball rolling. These are a few of the things I've been working on recently (apart from my assignments and studies, ie):

1- The #ListersGottaList challenge from Day 8 and 9:

Day 8 & 9 #ListersGottaLIst challenge!

If you've been following me on Instagram, you'll notice that I tend to go all scrapbook-y for all my layouts. Trust me, I've tried to tone it down a little and keep it as simple as possible, but whenever I try, I think to myself: "ooh, that looks like something that should be included, and that too, and this and definitely that", and well, yknow... So these two days was an attempt to keep it 'simple'. Day 8 was to document your favourite washis, and so... I ended up covering the whole page... and Day 9 was to write down your past and present favourite expressions. I used Typo kraft speech bubble stickers which came in handy for the phrases, washi to give it some colour, and ephemera I cut from a Project Life card. Simple.

2- The Blue MTN:

Brown, Blue and Black Midori TN - love!

I received this gorgeous limited edition Blue MTN yesterday after waiting a month or so for it, and it is absolutely lovely! I managed to get it on preorder from Bookbinders Online, with the accessories coming next week.

3- Drawing Days:

Fox Studies (& my lovely MTNs)!

It always seems as though that whenever exams are around the corner, I find myself doing things I tend to slack off when I'm free; drawing being one of them. I've recently been fascinated with wolves, foxes and the 4 legged loves, and so decided to draw them. I must say, I'm rusty, but once I get into it and know the anatomy of these lovely thangs, it does get better. So there you go people, practice practice practice! And just so you know, all I'm using is a pencil and a Large Plain Notebook from Moleskine. Nothing special!

Anyway, I can't really write lengthy posts currently as I need to study for my final exams for the semester (and my degree!), so till next time!
