BEHIND THE SCENES - JANUARY
I’m planning on making this a regular post, a collection of photos from behind the scenes that’ll be more lifestyle themed. I’d love to give more of an insight to trips, current favourites and more of the process behind my work so this seemed like the best place to share that! Read on to see some of what I got up to in January…
I decided to kick off January organising and deep cleaning my office. I really wanted my space to be more practical as I quickly realised in December that I needed extra space to work and process orders. So that meant another desk, conveniently this one fits perfectly under the window along side the current desk. Now I have a space for packaging orders and it doubles up as a good photography area as it’s directly under the window!
With rearranging the office I wanted to give it some new life, so I decided to do a little shopping for some new homeware. I managed to come back with a few pieces to store some of my art supplies, along with some coupe champagne glasses from a charity shop (not for my office but I couldn’t resist)!
I’ve made a few other little changes that I’ll be sharing soon in a mini studio tour that’s planned for February, so look out for that!
My birthday was on 21st Jan but it seemed to last a whole weekend as it was full of lovely surprises. I don’t normally do much to celebrate but Matt seemed to have other plans this year by ordering fresh doughnuts to be delivered on the Friday and then surprised me with a trip to the Peak District where we stayed in a little shepherds hut with a log burner fire. Which made it super cosy with it being so cold in January.
If you didn’t know already Matt and I got engaged in September last year and once Christmas was over we finally had some time to start planning for our wedding! - 0r at least start by doing some research.
We visited a few venues over a weekend and we haven’t quite found what we're after yet but we at least have a good idea of what we want now and also how much is involved in planning a wedding! I might keep adding little wedding updates in future photo diaries, let me know if that’s something you’d like to see more of!
Until next time…
That’s the end to my short but sweet January behind the scenes, I’d love to hear what you think of this new feature, so let me know in the comments or over on my Instagram !
