#100DayProject 2019: Days 41-70

Continuing on from Part 1 and Part 2, below are days 41 to 70 of my #100DayProject. Just as I was starting to wonder what to draw I also joined another little challenge by Becka Griffin and starting drawing an A-Z of cocktails.

Also, there are a few spice girls lyrics and the usual random doodles.

100DayProject Days 21-40

If you haven't seen I am doing #100dayproject of doodles, you can check out my first blog of Days 1-20 here. Days 21 to 40 of the #100dayproject involved a bit of experimentation. I tried drawing without lifting the pen, tried to make a picture with loads of patterns, Game of Thrones quotes and more summery drawings. I enjoyed most of these days, and some of these are my favourites.  I probably spent the most amount of time on some of these doodles, so they were more like drawings. Please do not use these images for your own designs, claim...

I saw a few options including 30DaysOfType but that was a bit restrictive for what I wanted to...

Trip Overview: Berlin

Berlin is the capital of Germany, the city is known for its museums, nightlife, art and its architecture. It has a lovely mixture of old and new buildings, with street art and quirky features like the mixture of traffic lights. I went to Berlin in October, so thought I would share some of my favourite finds, restaurants and museums. Travelling and Getting Around We travelled with from Manchester to Schönefeld Airport with Ryanair (which I was a little scared that they wouldn't accept all my baggage...haha I had one tiny suitcase and a backpack). From the airport to the city we...

Independent Shop Gift Guide 2018

Independent Shop Gift Guide 2018

On the #justacard indie challenge today, its all about community.  So for this prompt, I wanted to create an Independent Shop Gift Guide, to highlight all the wonderful local makers/creators/shops I know and shop with, but also a few amazing makers around the UK that I might stalk on social media. I'm part of many communities, like JustACard, Stafford Made Etsy Team and there are even little communities at markets where we all help each other out, even if it's lending a clip to hold the whole table together or if someone asks for something specific and I know someone who...
