Anyone else feel like they are lacking in vitamin D? Gimme all that sunlight!
Turns out this is a monstera heavy post…
It’s already the 5th of March (!!!) Howww??
This month started off with me going a little stir-crazy cooped up in the house because of the snow. It did make me draw a lot though, so I shouldn’t complain. There’s already another iPhone wallpaper on its way, and I managed to get a regular monthly illustration job, so things are looking up in Megland!
I suppose I have a couple of “goals/things I want to do” for March:
1. Release Paintboxfox’s first zine
2. Get the ear piercings I’ve been thinking about getting for months
3. Start work on my portfolio website
Through the snow and cold, somehow my monstera has produced 4 new leaves from where they were chopped off (due to an accident involving my cat a few months ago). Yay Mildred!
I’ve finished all my drawings for the zine, and am partaking in #marchmeetthemaker on instagram – if you are taking part too, let me know!
And I’ve had my first successful charity shop rummage in a while – green marble coasters. It feels like everything in my life right now is telling me I’m a fan of green…
Some moments from the past week.
Next week is the end of my month of daily photos. I’ve enjoyed it, so I think I might just carry on… but instead of doing weekly blog posts, I’ll make one a month with my favourites.
Right now, in this dark grey weather, bed is my happy place. I mean, it kind of usually is, but especially this month. Probably not the healthiest of statements, but we bought a new bed & beside tables recently and I’ve just wanted to spend all of my time in there!
I always think bedside tables are so personal, and give you a tiny insight of the owners personality. Take mine for example – constantly littered with books, notebooks, hand cream, lip balm & jewellery. Whereas Harrys is an oasis of calm – simply a glass of water on a coaster. I don’t know how he does it, but he’s definitely this minimal in general life, too.
Is anyone else’s bedside table as cluttered as their mind?
I’m not ready to share my entire home with you. YET. But I will! We’re still painting the living room, the “hallway” (I say this in inverted commas because it’s like a box with three doorways in it) needs painting and we need some major storage in our bedroom. Once we have all of the finishing touches done I’m planning on maybe doing a video tour to accompany some photos on this little blog.
For now, here are a couple of cute corners in our apartment:
