Cute dogs

I've been so lax but my to-do list isn't getting any shorter. Maybe this funny video of my Yorkie toby chasing Spike will help you forgive me?

Promise to be back properly soon x

Update type thing

Oh dear, I've just got too much to do I can't keep up. But I often find myself inexplicably doing nothing useful at all. Which is bad. But can maybe be forgiven right now as I have tonsillitis.
Here's my to-do list:

  • Promote my new website: (well that's that job done for the moment)
  • Finish my dissertation (due Dec 15th)
  • Finish (well, start) 3000 word essay due in less than two weeks
  • Print and send NOTHS bespoke stationery orders
  • Buy bridesmaid dresses, speak to DJ, arrange tastings with caterer, go taste cakes.
  • Do day job fairly well hopefully!
  • Tell everyone that the first 10 customers of the aforementioned website get a free limited edition Pretty in Paisley calendar (tick!)
  • Make a cup of tea
  • Start making Christmas presents
  • There is so much more I'm sure.
Yesterday I intended to dig out a photo of my great-uncle who was killed in 1915 while serving in France in the First World War. I also have a letter that he wrote home to his family that I wanted to share. But guess what, I ran out of time. And the box containing the photo and letter and in a cupboard that is currently taped shut to minimise the amount of brick dust that gets in- we're doing some house re-modelling!

I promise I'm not about to crack up (hopefully) but if my posts are even more sparse you know why. There's always twitter which I do vaguely keep updated. x

Art Every Day Month

Well here goes, the start of art every day month. I can't promise to take photos every day but I can do my best to do something creative every day this month in some shape or form. I've spent quite a bit of today printing up orders for my NOTHS shop. But that doesn't really count as creative in my mind. I've already designed the screens, I'm just putting different people's names on the stationery. I'm so pleased though to have had several orders this week, being in the NOTHS catalogue was obviously the right decision. I don't want it to go crazy though. My small business needs to stay small for the time being- I have a dissertation to finish, a magazine to write for and a wedding to plan (let alone a full time job and a house to look after!)

Anyway, I will be doing something creative today and hopefully I'll remember to take photos too. Happy 1st November x
