Goodbye 2011!

This post is slightly inspired by this one from Liselotte. I wanted to do the same survey thing and I did, but some of the things seemed too personal and too long for anyone to read. So instead I decided to do a quick summary of what happened in 2011.

  1. I graduated! No longer a student I feel free to roam and work on what I want. I am also not as skint as I was, but it's still far from being rich.
  2. I designed my first line of brooches. Look here!
  3. I got over the hand and some other health issues that I hope to leave behind forever.
  4. I no longer live in a rented flat! (And also that doesn't mean I moved back with the parents, just moved in with the boyfriend).
  5. I started learning a new language. Being fluent in two really is not enough!

It might not be all big things, but I feel like this was a very productive year (although it had a lot of faffing in it too).

This is the skull tree :) I am not a fan of fake trees but this was just a bit of a joke to carry the skull decorations, which I wouldn't put on the serious tree. (If you click on it to see the closeuo, you can see two  of the skulls on the right side at the very bottom).

Busy in December!

December was probably my busiest month next to May (which was the Degree Show prep month). I've been away twice: far away (Stockholm) and not that far away (Lancashire). I did two craft fairs (one remotely... Thank you, Claire!), tons of bird brooches, which are now also available for purchase at the Drill Hall Arts Café. So yeah, this is the first time I have time to actually sit down and do some blogging!

These are the birdies. Soon to be available on Etsy!

And these are the fellas in the cabinet at the Drill Hall Arts Café.
