here and there and everywhere

Lately I've been feeling like I've lost some of the love I had for my blog - it has started to become a bit of a chore, and I think that's because of the pressure I put on myself to make my blog look a certain way, and to only make posts which I think other people will like and which I think people will comment on. This blog was started during a really tough time in my life, as a way to focus on good things, and as a way to hopefully meet some new people. It's time for me to go back to that, because that's why I fell in love with blogging and the blogging community in the first place.

Also, most of my time lately has been consumed with making products for my upcoming business venture, a lot of which I can't share here just yet.... but for now here are a few peeks at non-crafty things I've been up to over the last few weeks.

 photographing London in the autumn (I've always wanted to get a photo of a pigeon sitting on one of these underground signs!)


taking time to walk around the city I love instead of always rushing everywhere on buses or trains


 a trip to Richmond Park with the amazing Kate


 a traditional Japanese lunch


 spying the cutest bumper sticker ever


 playing 'spot the moon' on an evening stroll

 I have some really cute posts planned for this little blog, including a few DIY tutorials, something I've been wanting to do for so long. Oh, and what do you all think of my little blog makeover? It's not finished, but I'm feeling quite proud of it, considering I've never done anything like this, and I only used Photoshop for the first time a year ago! xoxo
