Summary of art & sewing 2016

week2top

It’s time for a recap!

Every year I make a summary of my work I’ve done during that year. And every time I am so stressed and thought I barely made any progress. But then every time when I do make the summary of that year I am surprised about the amount of work I still did.

I love to do these recaps, I think it’s good for every person, artist or not to evaluate yourself every time. Sometimes you can be blinded by stress or different reasons and you feel you have wasted a complete year. Sure sometime (most of the times) I wished I had done more and feel I kept pushing projects forward. But it also makes me wonder if I don’t ask too much of myself?

Happy New Year!

A new year, a fresh start…kinda. I still have lots to do, projects to be finished and a portfolio to be filled! 2016 been a rough ride, I am always so super busy and distracted that time flies too fast. However I also feel truly blessed that I can make a living of my freelance work. I really appreciate all the support I am getting and that people are interested in buying my work ^_^

I have to keep remind and push myself to blog (yay for weekly banner). If not for sharing with other people, then for myself. It’s good to express myself and make a bit of breathing room in my mind (and to get better in writing)!

My thoughts about social media

Just my thoughts about social media! And keep in mind, this is my opinion and it is how I experience it!

With websites like Instagram, facebook, twitter and/or tumblr etc it is allot about the popularity and attention (+follow, thumbs up, share, retweet, double tap etc) you get rather then expressing yourself the way you want! I mean I get it, because without the proper followers you won’t receive any feedback + everyone likes to get positive attention! And as an artist you need this base in able to make a living of your work. But it becomes a competition and this can either boost yourself up or put too much pressure on you.

Why blogging here!?

Why not blogging on other websites like, blogger, weebly or tumblr? Simple, I want to keep it personal (and looong) and I don’t do that on social media which I mostly use for sharing my work and fun memes (it’s more visual)!

I want to blog on my own website where I can share my thoughts in a simple way, without frills. Beside it’s useless to make a personal website if you make it a static one. It’s also nice to have everything in one place, for example don’t you just hate to say “Hey here is my website, but you need to go to this other place for my portfolio and my blog is somewhere else too” it just doesn’t stick. And that’s why I think WordPress is a perfect way to create a personal website with a portfolio and a blog! And that’s coming from a person that started to get really annoyed by wordpress, but I have to admit in the end it offers exactly what I want for a personal website.

Projects for the upcoming month ♥

While writing my blog last Tuesday I’ve realized I should make more time blogging! Originally I wrote this and upcoming blogs last Tuesday, a month after the announcement of my new website. I know I can easily get distracted and talk too much about something (that’s why I also think a blog is perfect!), so I’ve decided to split that blog into 4 parts and schedule 1 every Tuesday.

Meanwhile I am very busy working on my commission work. I have lots of projects waiting to be finished and that’s why I wasn’t able to focus completely on uploading my work either.

Lets start this blogging thing…

Time sure flies fast! Just a month ago I was busy working non stop on this new website and soon after I gradually filled my page with portfolio items! I mean that’s what this is all about, to create a website where I am able to share my work…right!? ♥

Half true! I also just really want to blog, but because it’s been so busy I barely had the chance to make time for it. I have tons to tell and I have a million thoughts to share. The hard part is to take the steps to actually do it! Procrastinating is really a bad habit of mine and not just with blogging, but with projects, daily tasks and even in hobbies too. It is a huge challenge for me to stay focused and it can be pretty stressful, working on it tough!

A new website!

Let’s talk websites, websites is a fast growing online medium and on top of that you as an artist and person keeps growing and changing too. You discover new things about yourself and what you like and because of that you like to do things differently along the way. A website is a way to represent yourself and that’s why I like to update my website every now and then.
