As promised a while ago, here’s a small update on what I’m doing to live a more low-waste and minimal life. This past year I’ve slowly been using up all the products I already own and when I finish a product I first ask myself: do I really need it? If I feel I do, I try to look for a natural DIY recipe online. If that’s not available I try to buy a plastic free version of the product that I’m replacing. It’s not perfect and not always possible, but it feels good to try. I think if everyone tries a little, together we can achieve a lot. Hopefully another update soon!
You can find my original post here.
Happy first day of autumn! (On the northern hemisphere). I love autumn! It’s the cosiest season (in my opinion). I love staying inside when it’s raining outside, and cosying up under a warm blanket, with hot tea and snacks within reach and a book to read or movie to watch. What are your favourite things about autumn?
Today is World Gratitude day, a perfect day to say “Thank you” to everyone who follows me here, comments, likes and shares and supports my work in any way. I truly appreciate it! I LOVE making illustrations and I’m thankful that I’m able to spend so much time doing what I love to do. So, thank you!!
I hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer 2018 as much as I am! I did have time to make a quick “what I wore” drawing. These are my favourites at the moment.
A little more summer. After working so hard on finishing my calendar, I’m taking some time off this week to enjoy the last sunny days of 2018. This is the August page from my new calendar. I’m SO happy with all your (pre)orders! Available on Etsy.
I’m happy to say that my 2019 wall calendar is finally finished! It was a lot of work, but I’m happy with how they turned out. I hope you are too. If so, you can pre-order one now on Etsy. I will start shipping them a little bit later this month. I ship worldwide and offer gift wrapping.
Goodbye summer of 2018! You were very hot (and very sweaty). And even though I’m still hoping for a little bit more of you, I’m also ready to embrace autumn (the cosiest season!).
Happy National Read A Book Day! I love to read. At the moment I’m reading To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf and No Impact Man by Colin Beavan. My favourite places to read are on my balcony or in bed. What are you reading and what are your favourite reading places?
These “booklover” postcards are available in my Etsy shop.
Hello September! New month, new calendar page.
As an illustrator September means getting ready for the Holiday season. I’m working hard to finish my Christmas collection and my 2019 calendar. I hope to have both available on Etsy, and in selected shops, somewhere this month.
