sketchbooks and left handed pens

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias August. Hot days, but cool evenings, time for another camping holiday, and suddenly, all the shops including the Range are full of back to school displays, and parents are wondering where the summer went and how long […]

{trying out} bullet journaling. Well, I wrote out a weekly diary page three times in a notebook, ripped them out because I didn’t like the layout, and put the notebook in my bag anyway. So I’m thinking about trying out bullet journalling. And somehow I’ve restrained myself from buying yet another notebook even though it’s […]

day to day sketch kit

As I mentioned a while ago, (dear 15 year old me) I have spent most of my life convinced I couldn’t draw. When I took up photography a while back, I started seeing things differently. And then I started drawing. To begin with, I wasn’t quite sure what to do, or what I was interested […]

Parenting, or indeed life, is full of blink and you’ll miss it moments. Once upon a time, that was what happened, if you weren’t there, you weren’t looking, you lost your chance. Then came cameras, Polaroids, digital cameras, and now most of us have that powerful camera in our pocket in the form of our […]

Low on words

Perhaps they blew away at the beach, caught on the winds like the dreams of a child hoping to fly. Or were they buried like treasure by a pirate’s apprentice? Maybe they washed away in the rain, or faded with the rainbow? Or perchance I left them in a different century… I’ve lost them before, […]
