Trying to be positive and bombarment of accessories and clothes



Ive been slowly working away on more paintings and projects. Ive began going back to collage and other medias I've not used for a while and miss dearly. Ive started sketching a lot more again as
well and scribbling ideas down, ive not did this for a while either. Even if my own art doesn't give me the same drive it once did i still cant help but have the drive to do it.


I managed to find this quite a while ago in a charity shop for about £2.50 ish when online it costs about £20 and they don't make them anymore. Ive always loved and wanted little gadgets like this for the pure reward of seeing my work made into a product. Its somehow a nice feeling even if its small and probably does'nt seem much. 



And lucky me managed to get a sticker machine in January at a charity shop for about the same price what a nice find it was for me for the same reasons.




A first attempt not the best but would like to explore it more. I wanted to make these pretty things and put them in my Esty shop which i keep delaying on. Im afraid no one would want them tho even tho i should just take the plunge and get over myself and self doubt that plagues me. Its horrid, i have very bad self esteam yet i meet super nice ppl espeically other girls lately. Who say such lovely things about my character and fashion sense which i didnt think i had much of.

OH YEAH!?!


I did another video for my story tapes! This time is Jack and the beanstalk i hope you like it!


A while ago and more recently i bought some pretty things for myself aswell, im not a very materialistic person i appreciate things but i usually dont have much desire to possess them. Im a weird girl lol like i tend not to splurge on clothes and jewellery much even if i find it beautiful. I only do this randomly with lots of space in between.
I did start a look book tho but have been neglecting it, but i guess i could show what i got recently since i notice a lot of Bloggers do this. Guess it might make my blog more interesting instead of the self loathing and artistic blogs i do that no one seems to really enjoy.

Some of these things are from months ago and some are just the other week, i dont spend very much money at all. I have a lot of problems with money aswell and thats got a lot to do with the family matters im not ready to discuss yet. But i hope you enjoy these just the same.

Ive decided to start collecting Beatrix Potter memorabilia since i seem to find a lot of it where ever i go.

This plate was given to me recently it cheered me up.


Its a wooden game of knots and crosses with Potter characters you turn the blocks over to choose your character to play.


I also found this really old story book thats susposed to be an exact copy of the oringal including images,text, layout etc. The book is dated to the year i was born so its 22 years old, thought it was a little sign to get it.

Getting away from Miss Potter i also found this on the same day. Im not sure if it is a real Coco bag or not ive did everything i can think of to check if it is real or a fake. And from what ive found if it is a fake its a very very good one. The only thing that i know is not right is the handle and it seems its been replaced by a home made one to sell in the store. I think i would feel guilty wearing it if it is indeed a fake cause a lot of work does go into making clothes and accessories. If anyone could tell me if it is or isnt i would be very grateful.


I got all of these things apart from the gift at a charity shop for really cheap i thought they were all so lovely.

Im not one for accessories so much when it comes to clothes or treating myself all that much but i did a while ago with some of these. They were also on sale or very cheap which made me feel a little better and not as guilty on splurging.


I got this necklace its not something i usually wear but i thought it was quite pretty and it has ribbon to tie it on instead of a chain. Ive been trying to feel better about myself since ive been pretty unhappy for quite a while i thought maybe some different pretty things would help. Even if their not usual style or taste.

I got this belt to go with a new dress i got at the same time, maybe ill show it here sometime.


Brogues for the win.


Some nice belts that came part of a set i got these the other day.


My mum got these for me while i was visiting friends last week I usually only wear nail varnish on my toes and clear stuff on my hands to just make them shiney. My mums nice that way she will randomly get me little things for me or others in my family.


Pretty hair clips i really dont know what to do with my hair just now, its getting longer and cant decide on a new cut.



Some tops.


And pretty fun shorts.

Sorry if it seems im a image conscious and stuck up girl from all of these clothes and accesories im always afraid people would think that of me. ;n;


Ive been getting into cooking a lot more to and got this little cooking organiser a couple of months ago its just what i needed.


I also got this ink stamp as a lucky find ive been finding it hard to get normal letter stamps that arent expensive since last year. Ill have to try this out soon.


----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thats most of my things i guess pictures are better than reading mountains of text.


Also happy belated pancake day my poodle socks say hi.

I made scones with friends aswell.

Heres a pokemon ball!


And a badly forever alone, forever a scone.

Ive also been thinking about maybe trying for Uni since job searching is not going so well.
I have been looking at different art courses but bad experience with education makes me uneasy. Also that im pretty messed up right now to do much of anything. Im planning on phoning another Councilor tomorrow i hope it goes well.

Waaaah sorry this entry is so long, this is only some of the things that have been happening. TnT

  2. Yay! I am so very excited to see your new pieces. It also made me happy to see such a long post. All of the things you have collected are lovely. I absolutely adore those shoes and I can just imagine them on you (they look lovely my dear!).

    I wish I could find a cheap machine that could turn my art into cute stickers and such. It must be so wonderful to see your works turned into cute little trinkets. Oh and thanks again my darling for posting another story video <3

    Hope you are well!
