Update

Hello Everyone 😊
It has been a while since I last updated you. The reason I haven't posted more is because I have no motivation to do so, I don't go out, so I don't have anything to write about, I'm sorry.

Lets start with me: I was referred by the dentist in December to go have sedation, I still haven't heard anything back, so I will have to ring them about that.
My mental state seems to be lower this year, I don't want to do anything and when I do, I don't have anyone with me. The loneliness seems to be getting to me more, sometimes it's not a problem as I do enjoy being by myself but when you do the same thing everyday and you don't leave the house, it does get a bit too much, so I have been sleeping more than usual. I have joined a mental health support group online so when I am feeling at my worst, I can write it on there without being judged and have support from other people going through the same thing.
Also the blogging world has been distant for me, I haven't been to any events and it's really getting to me, I want to see my friends, I want to be happy but I can't force myself to do so.
It's currently sunny in the UK, and it should be lifting my mood but it hasn't and then that makes me sad.

My sister had a sad time in February, baby Jax died and it broke all of us. I've never found a pet dead before and it ripped my heart out. He will be missed.
My mum buried him in the garden and my sister bought a willow tree for him, the fluffiness of the tree reminded her of baby pigs fur.
On Monday my mum and sister went food shopping, they were taking forever, now I know why:
Meet Roman, he's so tiny and I have been cuddling his as much as possible. We introduced him to the other two last night, he was really excited and kept humping them both. They've now been separated but will put them all together when he's a bit bigger.

I'm hoping to up my blogging game this year, need to get some motivation if I want to become a full time blogger.
I want to be able to branch out in different areas too, get back in to photography is a must and doing haul posts. Want to get back into doing nail art again, currently trying to grow my nails long but there not a bad length now, just need a bit of care and polish.
Want to collaborate with brands as well. I love doing review posts, keeps me busy.

My dad kindly bought me a 3 pack of craft mats, so I can start using my distress inks and learn to blend. I still love creating things and I have still been making cards for family and friends. I want to do more, maybe in the future, I will sell them.
I'm trying to perfect my technique, I love my zig clean colour brushes and have started using water with them. Still trying to find a cheaper alternative to them though, as I do love the feel of the real brush and to be able to blend colours without any bleeding.
These are some of the cards I've made recently:




The last two were rushed.

This year we've had an Avon lady, I love Avon products and a few months back she gave me a sample of a new perfume and I loved it, i used the whole thing, so I bought the perfume and got a free gift with it:
Viva La Vita with a nail polish in Lilac love, body lotion, and a day and night cream (not pictured)

I also managed to get my hands on a Dot Creates blogger box, its a must buy for anyone 😊
The planner is undated with is amazing, so you can use it whenever you like, you also get a blog planner pad, 2 large quote prints, 2 small quote prints, a set of 4 quoted pencils and some stickers. Can't wait to start using everything.

I have had my eye on this for a while and I've always wanted one, since I've stopped smoking (3 years ago) I get nervous and my hands want to do something, so instead of being glued to my phone, I bought a fidget cube:
Best thing I have ever bought, keeps my fingers busy and has a different "toy" on each side, I even fell asleep with it in my hand yesterday from playing with it. It calms me down when I'm anxious and keeps me busy.

I think that's it for today, Hope this post wasn't too long for you all.

I'm mostly active on Twitter so if you want you can follow me on there too 😊

See you soon,

Love, Emma xxx
