Saltaire arts trail

So rather than sit inside on a miserable bank holiday Monday me Hayley and Mandy headed up to Saltaire for the open house art trail. The visit has inspired us all to do more surface designs and experiment more! here are a few photo's from today :)

Brought some prints by Clare Caulfield of Paris which are so cute!

Paris, designs and the big move.

I'm rubbish at posting these days! I haven't posted in over a month now whoops.

So in the past month I turned 23 (old now) and celebrated with a trip to Paris which was amazing and surreal more than anything. It was an adventure rather than a relaxing city break, we spent a lot of time wandering around on the metro visiting as much as possible in the four days we had there.Paris is very spread out so requires a lot of hopping on and off the metro which sometimes was fun and sometimes rather tedious but I think that and how expensive things are may be the only downside of Paris.

We visited the Louvre which was amazing! I think me and Sam where more impressed with the building more than anything else, we also went half way up the Eiffel tower thanks to Sam's fear of heights :P but I didn't mind as It was still a great experience. We also visited the catacombs which were very eerie, It blew my mind slightly how many people were buried there! I think my favourite place we visited was Montmartre with it's incredible view of the whole city.

This month I had a creative streak and managed to create a few more prints to sell on my Etsy shop - They were very quickly made and quite simple really but at least I have a few more designs to add to my surface design portfolio.

Coming up..

I am rather excited for the coming months as me and Sam are planning to move in together and find a cosy little flat / house to call are own :) I can't wait to be able to buy lots of new things and decorate to our tastes and have the freedom to live how we want and not be told off for leaving things in the wrong place :P ahem.

On Tuesday I found out my job has been extended until the end of October so that gives me more time to find something permanent hooray!
