An Update

I've been a bit absent recently for a few reasons, and I don't like that my last post was over two weeks ago so thought I'd do a little update post on what's going on!
I was feeling a bit pressured to blog a certain amount of times a week; I know that's me putting pressure on myself, nobody else, but I just wanted to take a step back and take some time to do some other things.
I'm turning my garage into a studio so I can get back into designing again. I really miss it, as, although I design at work, I miss designing things that are 'me'. I went into uni the other day and I really miss being in the print room. All the third years were printing and dyeing and I just thought 'Ahh I wish I could be here'. I don't miss the pressure and stress of doing a collection, just the freedom of being able to design and print whatever I want, so, hopefully I can get that sorted soon and get back to designing as I think it will make me really happy.
You may have seen on twitter that I am planning the #NorthamptonBloggerMeet. It isn't stressful as such, but there is so much work that goes into planning these things! It has been taking up a lot of time, and to be honest I have taken to planning things for the meet over writing blog posts.
I've also been decorating my little house, meaning it has been a bit of a mess and I find it hard to work in a 'bit of a mess'. It is nearly done now so when it's all sorted and I have a new laptop, I will start blogging more frequently again.
Here is Persie helping with the meet up plans! (And because I don't like posts without pictures!)
Post soon,

  1. Sometimes stepping back and taking a little break to do other things is so important. I know how much pressure blogging can be.

    1. I think it's important too, and then when I start to get some more free time I'll start to post more regularly :) xxx

  2. When I had blogs previously I felt so pressured to blog everyday. Now I just blog when I want to because my blog is for me.

    You've done the right thing taking a step back. Setting up your own studio must be exciting! You can blog the hell out of your new creations.

    Enjoy your bloggers meet. I might head to one in the future. I'm in northamptonshire too.

    1. Yessss can't wait to blog about my work :) Thank you for your advice!
      That's great, I didn't know you were in Northamptonshire!
