A Stockist in Bridlington for My Totes....

I am pleased to announce I have a stockist in Bridlington! It is such a beautiful shop called "Behind The Times" located on Bridge Street. The shop has only been open for 6 weeks but immediately caught my eye and I've already had to buy something for myself! I think it is definitely what Bridlington needs, especially because it's so different. I am very happy they have allowed me to stock my totes there. Here is some photographs I took when I was in on Friday. 

If your in Bridlington, you should go pop in! Full of lovely items for yourself and home!

Experimentation with Photoshop!

Hello! Hope everyone had a sunny day as we did in Bridlington! Over the weekend I've been having a go on photoshop. My preferred method of designing is by hand but I do know the basics of photoshop so had some time experimenting with my imagery for some possible postcard/greeting card designs. Think they need ALOT more work though so I'm going to continue practicing.

p.s really struggling with how blogger has changed?

My Inspiration for the Day!

If you know me you know I love drawing birds! So I was very inspired and excited when I saw what my little sister was wearing today! This top is from AllSaints which she got at the fab price of £30 in the sale! I love the raven print and how it has a similar hand draw quality which I try capture with my drawings. It has now put me in the mood to get drawing so this is what I intend to do this evening! I'll keep you posted.

Beat the Weather With Knitting Club @ The Waterfront!

This is what it looked like outside! but inside it was getting very creative and YUMMY!

Last night I went to the new knitting club at The Waterfront Coffee Lounge, Bridlington! I haven't done knitting for such a long time, possibly years and it was great to get my needles and wool out!

The club is going to be every fortnight starting at 6pm. Its a great way to catch up whilst learning a new hobby and getting crafty (and eating cake) .


I have had a go at printing some birdie cushions!
What do you think?
Going to get organised and pretend I'm back at uni and decorate my space with inspiration over the next few days!
Some of these are also available in the CCAD Folio Shop!

Vintage Finds...

How beautiful is she? if not a little creepy..... Last week I was busy busy busy sorting threw all my stuff at my nan's and came across this metal box! I could NOT get rid of this, its so cute and vintage. I love how it has this used feel about it, inside its not completely clean there's little areas of rust. I've chosen to put some pretty fabric inside to hide this and now use it as a little box to keep jewellery and special keepsakes.

A Small Obsession of mine....

I am not a fan of getting my legs out and this has seemed to have made me have a slight obsession with buying tights!

One place which seems to get me going is Primark! Mainly because of its great value! These tights are a selection I've recently bought starting at about £3! Yes! £3, what an absolute bargain! I also had to buy them in a variety of colours!
