snap shots.


I am writing this post from my work desk, I have realised recently how much i truly love sweet tea. I discovered my old favorite mug that i bought in a charity shop in falmouth when i was in my first year, the weather was lovely for working in side light and bright, a good change from the recent dull-grey skies that I have become use to. I painted the boat picture for my SRP manager at work today she was really pleased with it, which was lovely because I haven't shared any of my work with anyone from work. I've missed sharing little snap shots of my days with you lovelies, I am so happy to have my camera working again. I have missed photographing my everyday.
I wanted to share a little idea I have had in my head for a little while, whilst RubyRaeLove is a jewellery shop i have wanted to expand into clothing, i am currently working on RRL first clothing line, its going to be a mixture of illustrations and free spirit. I am currently sourcing the items, and drawing up all the designs but its coming along nicely, I will be sharing with you the progress as I go along. So you will be seeing more of my work desk. Also my hair is finally growing! its only taken for ever, you probably can't tell but i have dyed it a little lighter, it was a semi-permanent dye doesn't seemed to have change the colour at all, i think for the summer i want to go lighter i am really not liking the red coloured bits in it but i am yet to come across the perfect colour. I have been getting emails about how i curl my hair and what I use, I will be doing a little tutorial for this next week. I am not one for fancy hair and make-up but I will be sharing with you a few little hair styling/curling tips.

  4. Your painting is so cute and I'm loving your hair :)
    The clothing line sounds exciting, I have always dabbled with clothing throughout making jewellery but always get fed up of it after a while and take it back off my website. The most recent things I've made are more diy than anything else so thinking of keeping them separate and maybe just selling them in my ebay shop. Hmmm. Look forward to seeing how you get along with it!!
