4. I love the fact that my brother has got into Swansea University to study English, photo was taken at swansea beach.
5. This beautiful collection of bugs and Antique jars.
6. Experimenting with hand-carved stamps for velvet Feather
7. Pictures of my messy/silly fringe
8. A little Vintage photo-shoot i did with my friend

  14. mmm those chips look delicious, i'm a sucker for home made chips!
    oh ella, i love how artistic and creative you are i wish i was more like you.
    no way, did you hand carve that stamp yourself? i remember doing things like that at school and it was so hard, yours looks perfect. i need some of that, it would be awesome for packaging and such.
