It's the penultimate newsletter of the year! The Christmas dinners are calling (it's 31 days to go if you're reading this on the day of release), but there's still a few weeks of working left before the holidays.
Hopefully this blog will make that time a bit easier for a few people, especially if you're currently (or thinking of) working from home. It's something I've been doing for a few months now so I thought I'd share some titbits I've learnt during that time, and why I'm such an advocate of the remote-working lifestyle. I'll also be chatting about some Christmas items on my Etsy shop, so stick around for that!
Before you read on! A reminder that I will have a stall at the Crafty Fox Market at Mercato Metropolitano on Saturday 7th. It's a fabulous food court with loads of food and drink options, as well as a bunch of other crafty traders - so come and say hi if you can!
I'll also be exhibiting in the Catford cARTon Gallery in Ninth Life Pub from 12th-17th December, 12-6pm. For more info, check out last month's newsletter.
Coming up this month: how I work from home and a Christmas shop update
As we hit issue 05 of this newsletter, it marks 5 months since I graduated from Arts University Bournemouth (yikes). It’s also around the time of year freshers are getting stuck into their first year at uni. To celebrate this milestone, October’s newsletter is all about the university experience, and why the most important lessons don’t always come from the curriculum.
I’ll also be updating you on my experience at the Catford Arts Trail earlier this month, as well as round up of the next craft fairs I'll be attending this winter.
Coming up this month: a deep dive into university and a craft fair update.
This month has featured a lot of sketching and journaling, as I've been preparing for craft fairs and the Christmas shopping season. It's been a bit stressful at times, but I'm super excited to share my work (and this newsletter) with more people over the coming months!
I visited Jersey in the Channel Islands recently too, which offered a lot of fun sketching opportunities for my travel journal. That leads on to the topic of September's newsletter, which is all about sketchbooks and why I've been using them regularly for the past five years. I'll be sharing my top tips for using sketchbooks, along with some previously unseen drawings and scribbles.
Before you read on! A reminder that I am still exhibiting at the Catford Arts Trail today (if you're reading this on the day of release) and next weekend (5th/6th October), so come and say hello if you're in the London area!
Coming up this month: why I keep sketchbooks and a sketchbook tour.
