Best Book Of 2018
26th April, re-reading His Dark Materials and being so inspired by it I finally made an illustrative piece of art after a long break.
17th November, home is where he is, with me and where I am, with him. Photo from our housewarming party in our new (but old) mock tudor witchy, warm and cosy home.
Biggest Surprise In 2018
Launching my new journal business and being blown away by all the love and support.
9th October - my favourite shadowy place in East Reading. Saying goodbye and reflecting.
Biggest Challenge in 2018
7th November - moving house unexpectedly and all the stress that came before, during and after. Feeling like it would never be over.
11th June - the big beautiful blue river, the day that Loki the swan was born.
Best Meal Of 2018
21st June - easily this decadent fillet steak on our last night in Paris. So good we went to the restaurant twice.
21st July - comfort to me is a glass of wine, silky pyjamas, cheesy TV and my art journal.
2018 Taught Me...
7th May - how much I need to be out in nature, and how nature is all around me. I spent 3 months exploring my local area and was taught the locations of secret bluebell woods, where herons like to hang out and all about the breeding cycles of swans.
26th June - yellow flowers and my yellow dress - first page in my Minimalist Art Journal
16.1 Best Day
20th June - My birthday in Paris. What a perfect day - beautiful French patisserie treats in the morning before a day spent at the Louvre and an evening of fruit de mer and prossecco by the Seine.
16.2 Best Day
15th April - If I could craft a dream day, this would come pretty close. Morning outdoors yoga with my friend, art journalling in the sunny garden before horse riding and then an evening under the stars in a hot tub. Bliss!
