wednesday wonders

hey there lovelies and a very happy wednesday to you, wherever you may be. today i wanted to share with you some of the cool and helpful things i have found on the world wide web.

i spend so much time on the net that i like to make sure at least some of that time is useful!

here is a little round up of the things that have caught my eye lately. enjoy!

this ecourse i have been eyeing for a while now. i remember it was offered for free a while ago, but because of the time zone difference i simply couldn't manage to make it. i was so keen to learn though that i invested in the full training. i think it will be well worth it :) stay tuned for lots of cool pattern designs coming your way!

i also found this networking site, especially for inspiration and aspirational ladies. i was drawn to the spiritual aspect of it, and i am looking forward to exploring it further.

i love this tool - it's a must for all bloggers. it allows you to keep track of how many people are sharing your posts and what social media channels they are using to do so. find out whether you are more popular on facebook or twitter!

this will be my next training course. i downloaded her free guide to facebook ads and was very impressed. i am looking forward to diving into the more in depth training here.

and finally, here are some of the things i am lusting after for our self sufficient garden! i am so keen to get started but must be at least a little patient about it all. it doesn't stop me wishing for different things though!

first on the list - this greenhouse. as we live in the colder northern half of england, a greenhouse will be a must, and this one looks great.

next, some useful shelving for the above greenhouse. i am so excited about this whole project, i really can't tell you!

and finally, this handy little gadget for hardening off plants before putting them out into the garden beds. 

so exciting!

what have you found that's useful/interesting/you're lusting after lately? i'd love to know :)

have a great day lovelies :)

insta-art: doodle girl

hey there lovelies and a very happy tuesday to you, wherever you may be. today i wanted to share with you another behind the scenes peak at a piece of art i created recently.

i created this in response to a prompt from the radiant faces course i have been enjoying. it is such a simple yet satisfying style of creating. i loved it!

i began with a blank page, my promarkers and my fineliner pens. i also had my graphite pencil for the initial sketching out.

i sketched out my girl with a huge heart and sweet little features. i added some wavy lines to the background for extra doodling possibilities :)

i then went over my original pencil lines with my fineliner. i wasn't too rigid with myself and allowed myself to redefine lines as i went along.

i rubbed out my pencil lines and was ready to add more detail.

and you can see, i wasn't shy about adding that detail! loved this style of creating - the more doodles and words the merrier!

i added in plenty of affirmative words and lots of inspiring phrases.

then i began to add some colour. i tried to space out the colours carefully, and began with the more muted tones.

i kept adding in shades a little at a time, and watched my creation fill with colour.

there was so much to add, i was spoilt for choice!

i really felt her coming together at this point, and was so pleased with how she was turning out.

i love how her whole body is kind of heart shaped, as well as being decorated with a large heart too!

and there she is! colourful, cute and full of wit and wisdom.

i have framed her up and she is for sale in a local cafe. such a cutie pie!

i hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek. i enjoyed sharing it with you :)

i am linking up this post to creative every day, sunday sketches and paint party friday.

have a fantstic day lovelies!
