Life Lately...

Let's just start with saying that I certainly did not see the month of February going and I'm surely not going to realise when this month will be over too! I've been busy, and I still am! It's a great feeling because that's every freelance designer's dream, but at the same time, days are going so fast when you're concentrating on your work that you actually don't concentrate on anything else! Not complaining though :) Although I think Jason's a bit disappointed that I don't take the time to cook some nice meals like I used to haha.

Things have been happening! Professionally, I launched some new prints in my Etsy shop and I'm planning on launching some notebooks very soon too. I've also been working on some very exciting projects! You'll have to wait before seeing a few of them, but at the moment, one of my clients and I are working on a new children's book called The Contest to follow the previous book Quinn's Socks. Make sure to have a look on Q for Quinn!

ALSO, I can't not talk about the Café des Orfèvres opening next month in Vannes! You might have seen sneak peeks of the branding I worked on for Mathilde the past couple of months. I loved working on it and I can't wait to see the café open with all my designs displayed inside (and outside!). It already feels like such an achievement as the scale of this project is much bigger than what I'm used to. Mathilde is currently raising money for the activities she'll be offering in the café, so if you fancy participating, head right over here! (Eeek, I'm in the video!)


On a more personal level, Jason and I have been preparing our tiny wedding and it will be happening in September this year (Yay!). We've got our outfits (well, I'm only missing the shoes), the wedding rings and we've booked the restaurant for the meal we'll be sharing with our close families after the wedding. So exciting! Jason's parents and his brother with his girlfriend have booked their flight and accommodation so it's all good. We just can't wait for it! One of the best parts though was booking the few days of holiday we will have after the celebration. We decided to stay in the North of Bretagne and I'm sure we'll have a great time :). I love organising holidays so much that I could do that all the time if money wasn't an issue!

Actually, we're also off to North Wales next month for a whole week to pick up Jason's old Ford Capri! I'm SO looking forward to going back to North Wales. I haven't been there for more than a year now and I miss it! I miss our friends, family, and the beautiful landscapes. I'll enjoy this time off for sure.

Even if great things have been happening lately on many levels, I've felt a bit off these past couple of months and I can't quite understand why. This is a very personal feeling and although some days are completely fine, some days are definitely off ones. I think I've just been worried too much about the little things in life that don't go well, things that are not done or finished, things to come that I'm dreading... I keep telling myself that I should just concentrate on the GOOD things though. And this is why I've decided to pick this quote 'Always look on the bright side' for my artwork today. I let my head get filled up with stupid things sometimes but what really matters is that I'm happy with my life where it is, being with the man I love, keeping healthy, doing a job that I love and having family around me. I'm one of those people that will forget everything that is going well over ONE thing that is going wrong. Does that ring a bell to you?! Anyway, I'm working on it but my god it's hard sometimes. On top of this, I've been doubting myself a lot lately, which is not helping...!

Guys, I think I just need a holiday ha!
