hello! as usual uni work has been taking over completely, it is getting completely overwhelming. I only have 6 weeks left in the studio before my degree exhibition and graduation!! we have easter holidays in between, but 6 weeks is no time at all. Its becoming far too real that I have no idea what to do when those 6 weeks are over, but I have to be grown up and earn money and everything somehow. eek!
I have had a few nice distractions in the middle of all this work though. Oh comely magazine is one of these- a week ago I went into the studio and on my desk were these two magazines with a note on top from kate. She thought I would love them and i really really! so beautiful and inspiring! I have bought a subscription and cant wait to receive the next issue.
I went home for a weekend a few weeks ago too. My Grandmother is now in a dementia home and we had to clear out her house. It was sad but lovely, really. She had all these lovely hidden treasures nobody knew about that were so so sweet. She had a box with different mementos from her and Grandads wedding- cards and name tags and the cake topper and handmade gifts from nieces and nephews, and newspaper cuttings. She had another little box with similar things from my parents wedding. We found a box of letters my Grandad had written to her when they were first together, that were so sweet and lovely to read. And little sewing boxes with old buttons and fabric and dress patterns that I now have. It all seems to special to use though!
My David and I have also had our anniversary. 5 years we have now been together!! which seems such a strangely huge number at such a young age, we're only 20!! We had a lovely day out visiting an old manor house and gardens, and spent the evening watching lots and lots of films and drinking wine. And he bought me a book on decorating cupcakes which has the most amazing designs in!! You can see my attempt above- its suppose to be us. they tasted much better than they look! hopefully I'll get better...
I hope you all have a lovely pancake day!!
