hello! this is what the nice parts of my may have looked like. may has been crazy crazy crazy. I have a week until I finish uni. WOW, It hasn't quite sunk in yet. But because of that, may has been very full of work and deadlines. But in the time I have taken to breathe, I have filled it with with cuddles with kittens, poppy pops, and bruce and lenny, new additions to my summer wardrobe, including a few new pairs of shoes, a pretty graduation dress, colourful scarves, patterened tights, blue cardigans, strawberry rings and huge floaty tops, yummy treats such as eggs and soldiers in my hello kitty egg cup, and a lovely falafel recipe by lyzi at being little. I also recieved some treasures from charlottie including teeny books, letters, a teeny chic, a bunny pencil, a tiny hamster called harold and a star ring, and my David bought me a pretty silver daisy ring too. So my month hasn't been all bad!!
The uni work is madness at the moment though, as there is so much to do for the degree show. Last week we had to prepare the exhibition space, which involved building extra walls, sanding of walls (by hand, my hands are very blistered!!) painting all the walls and the floor. This week we are putting the work up ready to be marked. Then we wait until the 10th of June when it will be open to the public. I am terrified!!!!!!!
Then that will be it, uni will be over. And I go out into the real world. Again, I am completely terrified!!! But I am also very very lucky. My mum and dad have been the best parents ever. They know how, more than anything, I would love to be able to just make and sell my artwork and jewelry, but financially, I can't afford to take the time to start building up my own business. But, they have secretly been saving and are about to buy me a summer house for a studio at the end of the garden, and are willing to support me as they want me to try and get my business to take off. Its amazing!!!!! I could not believe it. And they are not rich, or well off at all, but through one way and another they have got the money together. I feel so lucky, but strangely guilty too. I feel like I will be a burden to them, and also guilty that I am getting this chance that others don't who are much more talented than me! But I am going to work really hard at making it work, and doing craft fairs and my etsy shop and making lovely things to sell so that hopefully I will be able to repay them one day.
So, the next time I post, in a few weeks time, I will have finished uni. It will be also be my 100th post, and I am hoping I will have had a big makeover on this blog and my etsy shop and already have some products to sell! So I am planning on celebrating with a big giveaway, that I hope you will all love!
Hope you are all well, and good luck to all of you who have exams and deadlines!!
