I have found my creativity returning with a boost these past few weeks and seem to be creating more and more! Here are a few new abstract pieces and doodles from the summer of 2020...

A CREATIVE SUMMER UPDATE | 2020

So 2020 hasn't been the year anyone thought it would be, obviously. I have found myself in a weird way, sort of back on maternity leave. Except now I am also working from home alongside my husband! We spent the first few months of lockdown juggling work and childcare, which wasn't as bad as we had expected and I loved having the extra time with Liam. He went back into nursery part time a few weeks ago and soon he will be back full time there, as we enter a more "normal" routine. 

Now that the lockdown is starting to lift, I wanted to share a post here on our life during this weird phase. The small things we noticed and appreciated. New parts of our area that we discovered and the extra time we spent together. 

This is my third blog post on #super_ordinary life. You can read my first ones here and here. I love this Instagram account and hashtag so much. It really does remind me to be present and that you can be inspired by the smallest things, which has been especially true during these past few months. 

Here is a photo diary of the first few months of 2020 ...

SUPER ORDINARY LIFE IN LOCKDOWN

Last summer I found myself a new mum and in search of simple, cute and informative picture books. I had something in my head that I couldn't find anywhere so I decided to create it myself! I am happy to report, that it is one of Liams favourite books to read, so I felt it was time to update the pages left and add in some animals for him to look at and learn.

LIAM'S FIRST PICTURE BOOK | NEW PAGES

During the 2019 festive period and the beginning of the new year, I took the opportunity of writing cards and gift labels to practise my calligraphy skills. I am growing in confidence with this new skill and enjoying adding in colour pops and illustrative elements!

PRACTISING CALLIGRAPHY-02

This post is somewhat slightly belated (!) But I guess better late than never?! 

Last winter, I had a rather creative and fun festive period. It feels like forever ago now but I wanted to post the memories and pictures here on my blog, as a way of remembering and preserving that moment in time. 

ABSTRACTS
I found some time during the festive period to play around and create some new abstract pieces







FESTIVE DRAWINGS
There is just something about watching Christmas films and drawing festive scenes... 




WREATH MAKING
Is it even Christmas time without a wreath making workshop?! I attended one ran by Tasha at Flavour like fancy and had a great time eating mince pies, drinking mulled wine and crafting a foliage full wreath for my home. 




BISCUIT ICING
This year I was introduced to white chocolate icing in a tube and gold edible paint, need I say anymore?! A fun afternoon with friends and babies baking gingerbread and icing them during nap times..!
