The C Word

Posted by Kat C on Friday, September 20, 2019, In : Art 
Just in case that title has caused concern, I am referring to the dreadful annual event that happens towards the end of December.  I don't hate it like I used to but if I had a choice I'd absolutely swap it with a second Halloween, in a heartbeat.

Anyway, this year I have decided to make a C  card design to sell in my shop.  I'm planning on getting some myself for friends and family.  I normally make my own cards or get strange, festive postcards throughout the year and use them.  

Here's what ...

I've brought myself some fab new jewellery making glue so that I can now make rings and stud earrings and things like that.  It's great :)  I've already made myself a bat ring and it's standing up well so I've made some new items for my shop, including another ring and some cool spider earrings.

First up, these razor blade and flower earrings;

A floury cross ring;

Spider stud earrings;

Bat stud earrings :)

And this glow-in-the-dark bat brooch, which was a bit of silliness and made for me ^v^

I have...

Bat Fit 2015 plus Art

Posted by Kat C on Friday, January 2, 2015, In : Health 
As of yesterday Bat Fit has kicked off for another year.  The theme for this year is nourishment which for me means getting a tasty, balanced diet with more fruit and veg and more cooking from scratch rather than relying on processed, quick foods.  Also for me that will mean less fatty snacks and less sugary sweets.  These have crept into my diet over the Christmas break so I need to start to curb these a little before they become regular features of my diet.  A little now and again is ...

Bats, Bats, Bats

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, In : Art 
It's no secret that bats are one of my favourite animals, along with cats, but they don't tend to feature much in my artwork.  Just recently that's started to change so I've been sketching lots of bats and I plan to add lots of bats to the new painting I'm working on. 

Here's a few of my bats

They're both a little messy as I forgot to use a waterproof pen to do the outlines in so when I added the paint it bled a bit :/ 

Here's what I'm working on at the moment.  It's still got a lot to do...

A Little Bit Goth

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, April 20, 2014, In : Crafting 
Well it's been a busy week.  I've been busy painting and making jewellery.  Earlier in the year I set myself up a new Etsy shop called A Little Bit Goth, so I've been making new items for that shop as well as Woodle Doodle Dandy Designs.  So far I've already made 2 sales and I'm feeling really inspired at the moment, so that's really good. You can also find my new shop on here too.

I've also been working on a new painting.  I'm still mainly blocking in the colours at the mo but will get some p...

Bat Fit 2014

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, January 1, 2014, In : Organising 

This year in my attempts to get a bit healthier I have signed myself up to the Bat Fit 2014 challenge (click on the icon above or in the slide bar for more info).  

The theme this year is Detoxifying so I've decided to revisit my goals for this year and focus on the health related ones.

1.  Lose Weight
Well, my biggy for this year is to lose some weight.  I'd ideally like to get back to 10 stone but I don't think I can realistically do that by the end of the year.  I will however move significan...

Window Shopping

As I was feeling pretty rough I've been cheering myself up with a bit of window shopping via polyvore :)  Here's a little collection of accessories that I liked.  I'd especially love those boots :)  

Cool accessories

After a few weeks off work due to health problems and being on annual leave I went back to work on Monday.  It was a bit of a struggle.  I was the first person in and almost set the alarm off because I'd unlocked the door before I thought 'can I remember the alarm code'.  Luckily my fingers knew the code even if my brain didn't :)

It was great being back and I had a lovely surprize waiting for me - my swap goodies from Jennifer (aka Green Duck).  I made myself a cuppa and got down to the most ...
