Crimson Peak

I finaaally saw Crimson Peak, I feel like I’ve been dying to see it for hundreds of years (yes I know it just came out this past November).

Guillermo del Toro did another amazing job. He’s one of my all time favourite directors. My cousin was lucky enough to sell a set of drawers to him last year, I wish he’d gotten an autograph for me but whatever.

I’m going to go watch Crimson Peak over and over again until my DVD/Blu-ray version arrives in the mail.

I’m late, but that’s hardly surprising.

I hope that 2016 is an amazing year for all of you, and that you all achieve what you set out to.

With that being said, I’m am so damn grateful that 2015 is finally over. For me it was a terrible year, and I hope to never have to repeat it. Although it did have some great moments, like seeing my friend’s play, and wading through mud for an impromptu picnic (which I subsequently got sun burnt for the first time in my life), and other moments, I’m finally glad its done.

Here’s to great things to come!

Watercolour, Pigment liners, and glitter.

It’s Coming

It’s getting to that time of year. You know the time when people go mental shopping. I think I can safely say it will be the first year I will┬ánot have to work in retail during Christmas. It’s going to be nice, I won’t have to put up with or grin through the dumbest questions and having a person ask me 3-4 times if I’m positive there’s nothing more in the backroom (like it’s really capable of hiding, and if it is there it’s on hold for someone who’s not you).

I’m so pleased to not have to deal with that for once.

Anyway, I posted WIP pics of the cute little plaid cards on my Instagram last night, and got a surprising response. So I decided to share them here as well. These are all 2″ x 2″ cards for the amazing people I worked with for the past 5 years, they’re also getting some homemade hand salve since it’s freaking dry as hell in that damn store.

And in the thumbnail on the right you all get a preview of me practising my handwriting fancy style skills.

When I make cards again next year, I’ll be sure to use watercolour paper, as the cardstock was a bad idea, it buckled like I knew it would, so they’re currently being flattened out under heavy books.

Anyway, I hope to have more stuff posted before 2015 ends. Stay tuned!
