Take to the Skies

On Saturday evening I went to a private view at Beach Creative called 'Take to the Skies', which included some of my work. It was a wonderful evening, meeting people and hearing people enjoying my work.
Displaying your work can always be a fun yet scary activity. Mainly because you are putting your work on show for people to view and talk about. I spoke to a few people who said they really liked my work, so that was just lovely and positive.
After the show I was feeling even more creative and driven. I am always looking up at the clouds for inspiration with colours and shapes.

Hotel life to seaside life

I went to Dartford for 2 weeks for work, working in their store helping with a re-fit. It was a hard two weeks, the whole time we all felt so annoyed with the lack of work for us to do. When we all knew at home we would have lists and lists to get done. The only good thing I took from this whole experience was that I know I can talk to different people, and get along. I throw myself in. I want to meet new people, and enjoy their company. And this happened. I hope to take many little trips to see them all soon. 
Trying to choose food off of a menu with only a few choices for two weeks was hard. I can safely say I don't wanna see a pizza or anything chip related for a while.
During my two weeks, I had a whole weekend off. So myself and David jumped on a train super early Saturday morning to Brighton. Brighton is such a perfect place, I would want to take everyone there, all the time.
We went comic book shopping, photo booth taking, cake eating, wandering through the lanes, Lego keyring buying, wandering near the beach, and just enjoying the sun.
Then we met up with my friends Mandy and Laura and their cute boys. We wandered on the pier and played fairground games. We then wandered around these cute art shops and stalls. We were all getting inspired with our own work, and pushing each other.
It so nice to all get together and see each other. And I was super happy because normally I have to work a Saturday, so it was a nice little weekend away.
