Stuff I LOVE Saturday

Well this is a super easy one because it is 

THE JACOB AND KITTY 4 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!

So I painted that special boy a watercolour painting...


Because in the 4 years I've known him.. Jacob has helped my art in so many ways..
Made me confident again and inspired me...He's my muse!

I bought him this super cute moss garden in a lightbulb too..



from  Run2theWild on Etsy! 
AMAZING shop and well worth a look!

He's my best friend... And obviously I'm head over heels in love with him..
Every day I smile because I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!


And look...He gave me.. flowers.. a card and a LOVE LETTER!!! 


I LOVE Jacob's love letters! We wrote every week when we first got together!
And we both keep all our letters in boxes!

I love letters! And I write CRAZY ONES!!



Check out some here!

In fact read our love story here!

WOW.. look.. 4 YEARS!!!!

THEN...


And NOW...


YEP! This is LOVE!!!


HAPPINESS!

Illustration Friday EXPLORE

EXPLORE...

Travel in or through (an unfamiliar country or area) in order to learn about or familiarize oneself with it. 
To investigate systematically..

Some people travel the world for the need to explore.. Not me.. I still have to get r
ound my whole mind... I mean with an imagination the size of mine..It's a whole other world up there in my head! And THEN there's the little bit of world right outside my door... There's magic to be found if you just open your mind and explore!



As always I hope it made you smile!??

Tell me something Thursday


Hey guys.. Ok so I know this week is all messed up but I've been working away whilst wrapped up warm drinking tea... Christmas is ALWAYS busy but this year!!! EEEEEK!

Anyway.. Who else has a hat to match their tea cosy!??

Oh just me then! Haha.. 

Ok.. Moving swiftly on.. Back to the list

Today is number 18.. A problem I've had..

Well my biggest problem would have to be my anxiety!

You see I could easily be a bit of a hermit.. Before I had Noah I spent a good 2 years agoraphobic and was terrified of my own shadow! Sober situations were horrendous for me.. Even travelling on a bus!

 I'm still ever so shy until I know you... And even then I get so worked up in ANY social situations it's scary!

I live in a bubble.. When I leave the house I take the bubble with me.. I've never quite felt that I fit in and just find it easier to keep to myself and keep people at a distance!

I draw and create the ideas that fill my imagination.. And can seriously never ever imagine running out of ideas!! 

I'm not sure how much of a problem it is these days.. I cycle rather than bus..Or walk to my ipod soundtrack.. I take photos as I go and just enjoy the world around me.. Still avoiding people as much as possible though!

Parties.. Pubs..Social events.. They're a no go for me.. I just don't enjoy them and refuse to drink just to have a good time.. For me real enjoyment is being me, no matter how strange people may thing that is!

I have a whole create yourself happy list which I blogged about here

And I'm happy! So those fears and boundaries can just stay there for now..  

I don't need to prove anything.. I just need to enjoy what I do!

So there you go.. My problem.. But I guess I just embrace that funny side of me and keep going!

Thanks for stopping by guys...

Tell me something Thursday


Yep I LOVE tea! And I also love breakfast dates with my Jacob!

This Thursday started just like that! Hope your Thursday was fun!

What did YOU get up to?

Now..Where did I leave that list? Sips tea....


Ok so we're on number 17... Something I'm proud of..

Well I'm pretty proud of my little business..


I was always a creative child.. a daydreamer.. a doodler..not academic in the slightest!

A falling star!

 In 2006 when Noah was little and I found myself bringing him up alone.. I decided to make things to start up the creativity I felt had been a little knocked out of me.. As I started creating, people told me I should sell them.

I decided to give it a go and after finding out about Etsy, I set up a little shop and started slowly selling my sock creatures..

I them moved on to all sorts of different creations.. My imagination is way too big to keep it all bottled up! And I was so excited at actually being able to make a little money out of what I loved to do!

This time last year I was proud to announce that I had made 500 sales!

My Facebook page had well over 3000 likes and I was really making a go of it!

This September.. I finally went full time!

And I'm super proud to say that I have just made 1312 sales!!

And the feedback from people has been AMAZING!!!


I usually tag myself 2 people that i feel comfortable with and your one of those people! Ive said it before, i buy the person not the product but the funny thing with you is the product is 100% you! I love it and everything it stands for! Its such a gloomy world and you just see things in an inspiring way!

amazing, amazing, amazing seller and artist. Captured my wee man perfectly. Her parcel was a rainbow of joy with lots of Kitty goodies. Such a happy customer...


There is nothing better than receiving a happy rainbow package from Kittypinkstars! Thank you so much once again for a fantastic happy kit! It made my day and the little pumpkin continues to make my day as he sits in my cutting room where I can always see him. I love Kittypinkstars! A true original!

Getting a parcel from Kittypinkstars is like getting rainbows in the post... great wookie, so well made and all the extra bits made me smile *:D


A fabulous seller as always. I love receiving the beautiful parcels with wonderful surprises inside. Thanks again Kitty x<3 font="font">

I have to say that I think the Autumn Wookies are definitely my new favorites! Kitty is such a genius with her designs. Thanks so much for everything you do. You know I'll be back!

So YES!!! I think this has to be something I'm MOST proud of!!
I throw 100% of myself into all my designs... I want to spread positivity..Sunshine and rainbows around the world.. Meet like minded individuals and create a happy community!

And if I can make a little living out of it while I go..Well that's just a bonus huh!??

So a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has joined my adventure!

There's LOTS more to come in 2013.. Just watch this space!

Except ours were in red flock!

Sunday morning I was hanging out with these guys....Having a lazy lie in!


Then we went for a wintery wander in the woods...


I love the changes through the year... And although it's only slight now..
You can spot the change from Autumn to Winter..


If I have to leave the house... I love to be in the middle of nature..

And when I'm at home.. I like to hang out with my Wilbur!
