I'm going to have to slow down with the iPhone backgrounds... Maybe I should post 1 a month?? Let me know if you're enjoying them!(Use the hashtag #megsfreethings to show me if you use them) These are all based on my babycat Zissou and his favourite things - scrunched paper and cardboard forever!
Some moments from the past week.Next week is the end of my month of daily photos. I've enjoyed it, so I think I might just carry on... but instead of doing weekly blog posts, I'll make one a month with my favourites.
Autumn is quickly turning in to winter, but I'm trying to enjoy the golden leaves while they last. Photos from the last couple of months. I have been loving this cool cat for 6 years today!
I started a new sketchbook. The Leuchtturm one I was using had been bugging me since I started it, so instead of beating myself up for not using it, and in turn hardly sketching at all - I opened one that had been waiting in the wings for a while now. Surprise surprise, I really like it! It's the Magma Art & Illustration Sketchbook in a not-quite-A4 size (18.4 x 24cm). Promarkers don't go through as much, or pill up as the leuchtturm one did, and its a good size to carry around in my bag without taking up too much room. I haven't used it with watercolour, and probably won't because its just not the right paper, but I'm really happy with it so far. It also has lots of interesting information in the back that I have actually read and go back to! I usually end up ignoring stuff like that, but some of it is pretty useful. I'm getting pretty in to sketching nature and animals at the moment. It makes a nice change from my usual portraits/people theme I think. It's also making me want to sit outside and draw down local footpaths, woods and beaches. All I have to do is overcome my fear of drawing in public (!!!)
It's a late one this month! I've had no internet access for most of the month, so doing anything (you know, blogging... WORK!) has been nigh on impossible. Fingers crossed our new provider can get us back online tomorrow. It's also been a pretty packed, stressful month for me, so photos haven't really been first on my agenda, oops!
I had my hair coloured professionally in March... lets just say it didn't go well. This was the first attempt. After one wash I was left with cartoonish yellow-blonde hair. Every time I caught myself in the mirror I let out an "eep!" sort of sound, but ended up just trying to repeat my mantra "It's okay; David Bowie Vibes". I went again just over a week later and its a bit better/darker, but fading fast!
This is the only lipstick I've been wearing all month. Urban Decay Comfort Matte in 'Carnal' - apparently its super close to the sold out Nars limited edition lipstick in 'Kiss Me Stupid', and I'm finding it really suits red hair!
It was this one's birthday! Aaaand, he bought himself his first car! He is now the super proud owner of a shiny gold Mini One - and I'm in looooove with it. It's gold - of course I'm in love with it.
Harry took around 200 photos to get this one. I need to get better at having my photo taken.
Lets hope April is full of better, warmer days for everyone! Did anyone else have a full on March??
