With a stall confirmed I developed 'Crafters Block'.. I hate it! You have loads of ideas, too many to take charge! You have everything. I think I need to get my head down and paint I find that always helps.
It's near September. Kids going back to school, new collage students go for their first year and me? I have decided not to go to collage. Yeah bit of a shock...
I have had young people coming up to me asking "So which collage are you going to?" "None."
What's happened? Well I have literally taking myself and my mum to several collages. They might not be school-y to you but I'm not a school kid. I have never attended a institution, I am aiming never to take an exam qualification. Why? Because I believe there is a way where you can gain skills and still get a great result.
I was told to get the qualifications I would need. Yeah well I am studying but I am not stepping into an exam centre and throwing up everything I have learnt onto a piece of paper.
I have found Level 1 and Level 2 distant learning courses for English, Maths and many others!
You take them within your own time and this would really suit to my education. I told my mum and she seemed qui…
I thought I would post a few pieces I have taken last year. Fellow viewers stop stealing my stuff. I have watermarked these bad boys and try anything I will get them back! So don't try anything! Please simply respect my work and enjoy them. :)

So its Saturday, to be honest and quite frank, frank. I thought it was Tuesday today! I blame tiredness.
Today I plan to do art and crafts. Possibly a sketch of a young girl and try and focus on detail. And a women in the cornor wearing a cream silk & lace shawl. My sound like my ambitions are high but they have to be if I want to improve any skills.
And tonight I plan to do some cute felt things. Because I am please to say the confirmation for my stall is approved! I have one this September!
I am hoping to have a stall this October and December.
And I am planning dates for 2014! So I am really happy.
My mum has also given me a fantastic oppitunity! She is going to pay me to make Christmas cards for the family. I have been showing her what I can do when it comes to photography. I adore black and white photography.
A new post will be done in a bit to show what I have been working on these past few weeks. I think each picture holds something but indescribable.
I have been keeping this website a secret for a very long time!
The site is called 'The Public Sketchbook', its for people who enjoy any form of art and want to get feedback.
You can become a member for free. You can make an album to hold your pictures and members comment and give you feedback.
There's a guestbook where you can chat to members or just leave your throughts about the site.
Also I have added a 'Links' page :) If you have a blog, website by contacting me I can link it on to the website.
I will try to add my drawing & sketching tips onto the websites blog.
With much care and love going into each sketch I bought myself a notebook, though not a great quality sketchbook but will still get just as much attention. I have decided to use it as a way of showing everyone how I sketch. Its a way of life to use art well for myself.
I kind of got the idea to use it as 'Public Sketchbook' when I went to groups around the Midlands. Only a couple of months ago, I was in a small café in Nottingham. People kept coming up to me and complementing my drawings which is when I was struck the idea of having a sketchbook to share.
I am not sure if other artists or anyone really who have done this so it's worth ago!
The sketchbook is going to given a website a sister to this blog. Also it will give you the opition to become a a member and give feedback on my sketchs. I won't mind critics but those that are rude will be reported.
The website is also going to include a forum, hopefully a photo forum like a flickr group and hopefully also a tut…
After a few offers to have another stall *get in*! With possibly only 2 weeks till my next stall, I have literally gone insane in craft shops. I have been in my element to find the cheapest and yet good quality bit & bobs to make my brooches. I have also decide to make chunky bead kits for children aged around 6+. I have called my little business 'Simply Sweet'. Last time you heard it was called 'Bubble Gum Creations' totally abandoned it. Its only a stall business to gain a little 'hopeful' extra bit of money. But when I am 18 I plan to launch it into a proper business.
I had my first stall last Saturday (3rd of August 2013) for free part of a community event. It went very well!
All my Ice Cream chibi broochs.
Two of my paintings - One person made me sign the painting!
All my Cookies
All my Bunny Buddies inspired by my forever amazing and yet cheeky rabbit whiskers.
& oh so much more.
I have three more stalls this year, so diary has been re…
You must be getting quite fed up of me saying this but seriously guys I leave my blog for just a week and the views went up astronomical like squirrel out of space...oh bugger I'm speaking 'twoddle' again aren't I. Half the time I don't know what I'm saying but think what I'm trying to say is thank you. I don't say it often but this blog was only started a year ago and each month I keep views, comments and I'm just pleased you like it.
But it would sure be nice to be known as 'The Girl who Blogged' :)
So calling everyone, please share this blog x
P.s would it be weird if I said 'Luv Ya' or would that make me sound chavey?
