Blocked


You might have noticed that it's been a bit quiet round here lately.

I have - very frustratingly - been suffering from a patch of blogger's block. Ugh.

With any kind of creative block (the writing kind or the crafting kind) I've found the best thing to do is to give myself time. Time to rest and relax, to soak up some non-work-related inspiration and give my ideas a chance to quietly simmer at the back of my brain until they're ready to bubble over from my, er, brain pot? (that metaphor went a bit weird, didn't it?)

Hopefully I will be back to my usual irregular-but-frequent blogging "schedule" soon. Please bear with me!

Behind the scenes I've been working towards a few deadlines, doing lots of stitching for a secret project (which is going to be a gift so I can't blog about it yet) and taking regular "cuddle breaks" when this small furry dictator demands them:


I have a stack of magazines and a blanket stationed ready for when the "GIVE ME CUDDLES NOOOOOOW!" yowling begins - something to read, and something to stop my knees getting spiked by our kitty's very sharp claws / stop my clothes from getting covered in fur! (Pictured: Work/Life 3, the UPPERCASE directory of illustration)

With Wimbledon in full swing, we've been watching lots of tennis :)


I've also been adding some more "destash" craft supplies to my Etsy shop as I continue to clear out my studio...

P.S. I'm trying out a slightly different blog layout with bigger photos - what do you think?
