It has been a super duper busy week, even though I have been in and around the internet for the last few days I haven’t managed to post anything, where has the time gone this week? So the first half of the week definitely tested my confidence as a blogger, which if you are a reader over on twitter you will know why. There will be a post tomorrow about my interview with Lydia Bright for littlewoods. I’ve become a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to posts, so its taking me a little while to get it right.
So much fun, I feel really excited about all the new things I am working on, I’m so looking forward to taking you on my journey.
In other news my new illustrations went down a storm in my etsy shop, which was so unexpected and exciting, i think i have two styles of tote bags left from six so thank you. I am currently working on illustrated a jewellery collection which is really exciting, tattoo men jewellery who could ask for more?! you can follow my collections progress on my instagram, _ellamasters_
I also got rid of my ombre hair, thank you all so much for the lovely words when i wasn’t sure last week, It just didn’t look right curly, and you know me I love my curly hair, so for the moment I am red until I manage to dye it back to brown on sunday.
I have also set up a little formspring (click here), for the people asking me certain questions about my illustrations ( or blogging ), I have had a lot of people ask me specifics in the past about what exact bagging company i go to, name of my printers, exact paper for my totes. I am more then happy to answer questions about techniques, styles and answer your advice etc, but sometimes if I give away all my businesses secrets thats not really fair on me, i do like to keep a little bit of my business private. At one point this was getting me down, as I really don’t like saying no sorry I don’t want to tell you, but if i give away all my secrets well there wouldn’t be any point I hope you can all understand this.You are more then welcome to ask me. ( please don’t feel as if this is directed at you in particular if you have asked me any questions I have over 7,000 reader and followers throughout the internet and social media sites, so I do get a lot of request please don’t feel like i am singling anyone out I would hate for you to think that)
Work was more then hectic this week, I am finding the transition from illustrator / blogger to LSA / Teacher to confusing for my brain at the moment, since Christmas but I think I definitely need to get back in to my routine, speaking of routine, hopefully I will be joining the gym this week scary stuff! I also found out that I’ve lost a stone since christmas, cutting the snacks out has made such a difference and I managed to fit in a size 12 in Topshop the other day this never happens, maybe that could explain my shocked reaction when I got spotted in Topshop Oxford street by one of my blog readers, when I was coming out of the changing rooms apologies Abby for my startled face, was lovely to chat to you. So I think that is my week upto date, I have a blogger date tomorrow with some lovely blog ladies, where better then Spitalfields to hang out for the day!
