Welcome to my very fist ever blog post 🙂
I have absolutely NO idea how this blog is going to pan out BUT am very excited to be documenting/sharing/creating my thoughts and experiences through a creative online medium such as this one!
So… a little bit about myself:
I’m 24, just recently married on July 16, 2016 (my husband chose the date 16.07.16 so that it would be easy to remember lol) and have made the sea change from Sydney, Australia to the beautiful town of Port Macquarie ❤
Since I’ve been married, I’ve learnt that I really enjoy cooking! And that it’s not as hard as I thought it would be… (Although maybe I’m not being very adventurous with my cooking yet lol).
I’ve learnt that (after taking a break from full time teaching) life is so much sweeter when you slow down, and that love is the simple answer to pretty much all of life’s problems! Living on the coast really helps too 🙂
I’ve also re-learnt (I’ve known for quite some time) that I REALLY like to create. And by create I mean virtually anything! It just makes me so excited to even think about it, and even though I don’t have the money at the moment to go and study a fourth (yes, fourth) degree.. I just can’t shake the feeling that I need to be spending my time (and perhaps making money) making things.
EDIT: I’m doing it!!! Currently studying a diploma of Graphic Design through Billy Blue ❤ could NOT be happier
Some of my creative adventures of old (and present) include:
Shellac + Nail art
In capitals because this discovery clearly excites me!
EDIT: I have now spent an entire year in my A5 bullet journal and have learnt so much! To follow my plans find me at @white.plans on Insta.
I love making personalised gifts 🙂 this was the wrapping I made for my brother’s wedding. It was a list of instructions and puzzles to complete before opening the gift on the plane ride to their honeymoon!
Perhaps one of the most surprising things I discovered about myself during senior school was that I could draw and paint! It’s such a satisfying feeling looking back at an artwork in disbelief and feeling proud of what you’ve made 🙂
So there’s all my reasons why I want to do something with my hands and make art… I also like to do hair, makeup, hand-lettering, styling etc.. but for now I think I’m going to start small and pursue these loves of mine just one day at a time!
HANDLETTERING! needs to be added here so..
You can head on over to my Etsy store to purchase this and other items ❤
