So I’m back in Falmouth to resume my degree.

I’ve had a year out due to my mental health needing some attention, and at the moment, I’m considering if a project around mindfulness and encouragement for people with similar experiences that it’s okay to take things at their own pace, that sleep is important, that it’s okay to need help so you can maintain your wellbeing.

Reading about self-compassion and being a friend to yourself makes a lot of sense to me. However, there’s also a part of me that flinches at such platitudes. I think that caustic uppity inner-critic needs to be sat down and given a hug and told she’s not going to stop me before I start like she usually does.

Here’s to settling in to a new space, to facing some things that frighten me, and here’s — most of all — to being back within walking distance of the ocean!

In a break from usual service, I’d like to promote a lovely lady launching a new website for her ceramics! (Facebook.)

Victoria is kindly going to be stocking some of my handmade notebooks in her brick and mortar shop. 

I adore the colours she uses in her slipware ceramics, and am sorely tempted to get a bowl as a home for my air plants. So I can highly recommend you check out these treasures.

There’s also 15% off until 12/09/14 if you enter “FIRSTWEEKSALE” at the checkout. Sorrowfully, shipping is only within the UK for the meantime.

Weekday reblog!

And something that went a bit further. Messing around/playing with my coloured pencils is really soothing.

Mum found a little garden helper! Probably been enjoying all the slugs and bugs that have been out and about lately.

Today I pottered about scanning some of the people from my sketchbooks.

I’m still not particularly confident with bringing my people into paint - I really like how I’m going places with them in pencil, but I would like to make that leap into the media I tend to make finished pieces in.
