It is Sunday, which means I’m posting an overview of my most recent Instagram photos and I’m telling you all about what I’ve been up to in the past weeks.
If you’re a good observer you might have noticed some changes on this site’s design. This weekend I got fed up with the old design and decided to make the changes I wanted. Hello sticky navigation menu, hello more clean and put together lay-out. I’m working on giving all my old posts a featured image so everything looks all pretty in the grid-styled archive. I also made myself a quick logo. It isn’t the most polished looking logo ever, but I like the way it feels like a sketch. It’s definitely ‘me’. 🙂
Since I’ve started working full-time the amount of pictures I post on Instagram has definitely gone down. Only being able to take pictures after 18h doesn’t really help (because then it’s time for food and blog reading and staring at Facebook for too long). I do try to snap photos whenever I’m enjoying “the small things”, like my abundantly flowering lilacs, which smelled heavenly! I think I’ve posted a picture of them every year since I’m on Instagram. Another small thing I’m enjoying is the view on my desk now, with my new Hagrid Pop Funko keeping my Harry Funko company.
I’m super stoked that I finally got to start a new sketchbook! The one I finished was a very old sketchbook that I bought back into 2011 as a water-colour sketchbook. I used it until 2013 and forgot about it for a while. I wasn’t even half way through by then! I filled the remaining pages between October 2015 and May of this year, which is quick considering how look it took me to fill those first couple of pages.
After getting a pencil kitty pin from Pony People I couldn’t say no to this to this cutey by Dripface. I found it at Helen b‘s, a lovely shop that only been open for a few months. I also added another new skull to my collection: a teeny tiny bat skull! My cat caught it a couple of years ago and I’ve been slowly (well, I, more like a couple million bacteria) working to the state it’s now. I had to glue the mandible back together which made me feel like I was going blind. So tiny!
More madly flowering plants, this time on my terrace. I was a bit sad because most of them turned brown because of all the rain (and some of them even started growing mouldy), but they’re already recovering. I also started a new gallery wall in my living room. I was trying to keep the natural history theme confined to one wall in my house, but alas, I like it too much to only see it in one place. 🙂
How has your week been? Did you do anything fun? Started a new project maybe?
