Hello lovelies! Firstly, sorry for the lack of posts this past week -- it's been crazy busy in work and I've just not had the energy if I'm honest! Saying that, I feel I've ticked off some important things on my to-do list this weekend.

I'm SUPER happy to announce the opening of my new Etsy shop!! Don't get me wrong I love my day job, but as I mentioned in my First Art Prints post, my aim is to make a living from my love of designing. I've not really had the confidence until now, so I'm excitedly viewing the opening of this shop as my first steps to achieving that goal.

Talking to friends who I've made from doing the same thing, I know it's not going to be easy by any measure - but I'm looking forward to that. Achieving your dreams isn't something that should come easily. Or at least that's what I think.

There's only a lonely print on there at the moment, but I hope to have it brimming with goodies to choose from soon. I'd love suggestions and ideas for it - so take a look at the shop and pop me an email if you can think of any! I'm also thinking of going down the commissions route after xmas maybe - yay or nay?

I finally got round to refreshing the look of my logo yesterday. I've been meaning to do this, well, ever since I started the blog really! So I'm glad I've got myself in gear and sorted it out. I was a bit unsure with the new look to begin with, but loving it now! I was also thinking of giving it some Christmas cheer starting next week - maybe a scarf, some twinkling fairy lights and a flashing nose? What d'you think?

I now have a subscribe button, hurrah!! I'm not really sure how I forgot about this! So if you don't have a Bloglovin account to follow me on over there, you can now subscribe by email and get my latest updates delivered right to your inbox!

We are now in to the 2nd week of Movember now! Unfortunately I'm a very slow grower, and being fair-haired DOES NOT HELP! The plethora of taches I see on the tube each day put mine to serious shame! Mine is coming along though, slowly but surely - until then, this fake tache will have to suffice!

I'm doing Movember this year for the dear family members that have been claimed by cancer. It's a horrible thing, but we need to keep ourselves positive and fight to ensure that people have increasingly better chances of survival.

And lastly I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has subscribed, commented and shown support far. I've tried to say thank you and/or follow everyone back as soon as I get notified, so apologies if I've missed anyone out. It really does mean the world to me!
