Bury Photographic Society

On the 6th of September I made my first appearance at Bury Photographic Society, so I guess that means I am a bit more serious about growing this whole ‘photography thing’ after all! It was a bit of an eye-opener, that left me with a conflicted mixture of inspired and intimidated; the meeting was a display of Hoylake Photographic Societies international exhibition – so the images we were shown really were the ‘best of the best.’ Although I had a great time at []

Personal Thoughts

While I was doing some painting earlier – of the decorating sort, not the hobby sort – I came across the realisation that I’ve let other people influence who I am and what I am doing. I have put off personal project for an unwarranted ‘fear’ of upsetting people. I’ve let other peoples paranoia dictate what I am doing. A turn of phrase here or a surname there and I’ve had the finger of ‘You’re staling from me’ influence projects that I []

Sorry I have been a bit neglectful when it comes to posting on here. I want it to be because I’ve been mindlessly busy since moving – which to a certain extent I have been, but I also think it’s because I’ve been hiding too. Having thoughts that I wanted to try and figure out before I started posting here again. There was an absolutely massive focus on my art before I moved house; and after too – but I ‘crashed’ today.

My own biggest fan – series.

The My Own Biggest Fan series of posts on here are something I have enjoyed doing in the past, and are something I would love to pick up again. It’s basically where I get to talk about my own characters and how they have changed and developed over the time that I have had them. I’m wondering if this is a topic anyone would be interested in reading about? Making up a category and seeing what I can put in it and []

Sorry things have been a little quite on the talking front on here the past few days. My son hasn’t been feeling very well and to be honest, I don’t always know what to say about my pictures when I share them. I always felt like I should be this ultra chatty person, because this is a blog and it’s for sharing opinions on, right? But, constantly finding something to say about my pictures – which are all essentially pin-ups and very []

A relapse.

I’ve had a bit of an internet relapse lately. I thought if I reintroduced myself to websites slowly, that things would be okay. But, in actual fact, I don’t think they are. Spending too much time on them again. This time, I don’t know what to do about it. I’ve been enjoying the drawing prompts and getting ideas off other people, but I don’t feel like I am in control of the ‘moderation’ aspect of my internet use anymore. Is it time []

New Year, New Fangirl?

Hello everyone. And a happy (belated) New Year to you all. I hope you’re all recovered from eating too much chocolate and drinking too much alcohol! We are now back into the usual routine of Toddler Group in the mornings, thankfully, and blogging in the early afternoon while my son sleeps. Or in the evening while he sleeps. Things have changed a little bit around here since the end of 2017. I voiced my concerns with the internet as a whole and []

Some self reflection

I took a step back from the internet – I’ve always had some sort of presence on social media – when my Husband finished work for the Christmas break on the 15th of December. I was using some websites pretty avidly in the month or so before this date and honestly, I was feeling like it was taking over my life (again) The break has been welcome and now I am looking over my actions with hindsight I can see how badly []
