I feel this may be a slightly muddley post. i will try to make some sort of sense!

(lina scheynius)

i think i have become stuck in a bit of a creative rut. I desperately want to be creating and making wonderful things, but cant quite seem to get any of my ideas straight. i have been looking forward to finishing uni for summer so i can make art for me instead of deadlines, and now im stuck and feeling rather frustrated.

i also want to make a few changes to rosie posie rosie. i made this one day when i had nothing to do, found a blog, and when trying to look for more seemed to 'accidently' make this. i was trying to figure out how blogger worked and find out more, and suddenly realised i had made a blog. it was a very happy accident and i have completely fallen in love with blogging. i have discovered amazing and wonderful people and art, but i feel like mine needs a bit of a make over. im unhappy with the header, i cant seem to make or decide on a one i like. and i dont like the name and never have (when accidently maing my blog, on the sections to fill in, i wrote my name, and as it was taken, added 'posie' and as that was taken, just added another rosie!!!!!!) so i have been trying to tink of a new one.

I have one idea, which is chimerical. i love the word so so much!!! the dictionary tells me it means:

(kī-měr'ĭ-kəl, -mîr'-, kĭ-) adj.
Created by or as if by a wildly fanciful imagination; highly improbable.
Given to unrealistic fantasies; fanciful.
often chimeric Of, related to, or being a chimera.//-->chi·mer'i·cal·ly adv.

in a way it sums me and my work up quite nicely :)

any suggestions or ideas are very welcome too !!

i had to share this!! arent these lamps wonderful?? i adore them!!! i wish my lamp was as pretty as these :)

going onto a completely different subject...

a while ago, i found an amazing black bodycon cut out dress, but wasnt sure whether to get it as i had so few pennies. by the time i decided i would, it had completely sold out!! so i was super dooper excited when i found it on ebay, brand new and in my size!!!! i managed to get it for £22 and am very very happy!! i cant wait for it to arrive, it should be tomorrow :)

i also have a trip to london planned for next monday. i adore London, and havent been in a while. ive missed it lots! ive also missed my boyfriend lots, who will be going with me, making it a doubley exciting and special trip!!! i may treat myself to some pretty summer clothes :)

i am ever so tired now, i think i must be off to bed as its rather late. i may read a charlie and lola book, or watch the dvd lovely lottie sent me. they are always so comforting and may give me some inspiration, as childhood and stories are a big part of my work.

I hope you are all well and happy!! i apologise for the unstructured rambling this post seems to be, it is rather like how my thoughts all seem to be at the moment!!

  1. I know what you mean about getting bored with the blog, i changed mine recently (the name, the style, EVERYTHING!) and i did loose a few readers, but gained some great ones!!
    Love the dress by the way!!

  2. I'm so jealous you found that dress on ebay, I adore it! I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled on ebay now, let me know how it fits when you get it :) I bet it looks great, it' so 80's and fun.

  3. I love the name "chimerical". So simple and unconventional. I don't think I've ever heard it before, but I really like the meaning.

    don't be too hard on yourself for being in a creative rut. Take it easy and I'm sure everything will eventually work out beautifully :)

  4. I love that you accidently made a blog! What a perfectly wonderful accident! I am so glad you have one :) I think Rosie Posie Rosie is the cutest name but i do like your new idea too.

    Hope your creative rut ends soon. The internet is wonderful for exploring to find inspiration :)

  5. Lovely owl lamps, I love it! x

  6. hope you get out of your creative rut soon! i'm glad to have stumbled by your blog! it's wonderful. and good choice, the word chimerical is also one of my favourites.

  7. whatever you decided to do, dont give up blogging, i love your blog :) keep up the good work! xxx

  8. gorgeous light in that 1st photo! xx

  9. Crepes are so good, I haven't had them in ages. I love crepes topped with rasberries. XD Hot tea sounds so good right now too, especially mint tea. Mmm.

    I need to get a few things from Topshop, but I never get the chance!

    I've been wallowing away because I never can find anything to spark my inner creativity, but lately I've just been trying to not find it and be happy when it comes to me.

    Haha, tight owl lamps! Have you ever seen the tea cup lights? They're so pretty.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate all of them x
