Let's Do This!

Hi there everyone! 

So July so far has proven to be quite the busy bee month and I'm finding myself going to bed each night feeling quite exhausted >.< but the feeling of accomplishment isn't so far behind so it's not so bad :) and I can say I'm finally on the track of the final stages for my July painting orders, so I'll be working hard for the rest of the month trying to finish each of them off! Monday is my day off so I'll be spending that time to draft up like crazy! XD Aja aja fighting! 


Here are my favourite photos from the past month in July :) 

1. The cutest little Mickey Mouse I've ever seen in toy form, and I won it at Photoworld! :D Now it's in the grubby hands of someone special :)  2. A little sneak peek of the Pop M'art Grand Finale last weekend, photo credit goes to the event photographers :) blog update on it later!  3. Commission work for an anniversary present, I love how it's so colourful and happy! >.<  4. Speed Jenga @ Family Games night LOL this was after we played an intense game just before :P  5. My cute little nerdy bear pin from Hanaletters Etsy Shop, love it so much!  6. The attendees for last night's games night! Had a great night :) can't wait for my cousin's family to officially move up to Melbourne too!  7. Commission work for a wedding gift <3 I really adore the quote *sigh*  8. And this is the most goddamn cutest photo I've taken of Jiji recently!!! Her puppy eyes and head tilting... *dies* she's sleeping underneath my chair again atm x) love her company at night while working <3 


In the coming week, a few more exciting events is rocking its way up like watching Brave FINALLY at the end of working all week this week with a few friends :D Seriously been waiting for forever to watch this movie! >.< and on the weekend, I'll be heading over to the Mornington Hot Springs with my Uni friends for a soak during Sunday night <3 Never been to a hot springs before so I really have no idea what to expect, but I'm really looking forward to it. 

But in the meantime, I will work hard, so I can party harder later! :D 
Gotta keep myself motivated and get things done :) 

Alright, better head to bed now and rest >.<" have a great week everyone! Stay warm :)

Love, from Julie xox

P.S. Oh wanted to quickly mention a big fat THANK YOU to those customers whom took time to meet and pick up their paintings with me last week in the city (^___^) It was really lovely meeting you girls in person after conversing via emails for a period of time! I really do hope you enjoy your paintings and it makes you smile :D

What's up for July!

1. My little advertisement for my market stall @ Camberwell Markets in August (^-^) very excited!!   2. mini memory boards and easels, made ready for etsy soon   3. drafts of little paintings in progress! :)

Hello again, July!

Hello everyone!! How's everyone going? It's been so long since I've blogged, way back in late May in fact and now it's the 1st of July!! How time flies! (>_<) Well I'm happy to say that my final semester for uni is over and out and I can start preparing to apply to graduate now!!! HOW EXCITING! :D *fist punch in air* 

My little online shop was re-opened last Monday on the 25th June, and it's been busy busy for me since the past couple of weeks with catching up on past orders and making way for new ones too. My panda eyes have become pretty permanent but I'm happy that I go to bed each night feeling satisfied with work I've completed, doing something I love :) I really do appreciate my customers who are all so lovely and patient with me as I do my best to catch up on everyone! Thank you so much <3 

A few weeks back I signed up to hold a market stall @ the Camberwell Sunday Markets in the last Sunday in August (^___^) So that'll be my next big milestone, therefore I've started prepping for my stall already, and began brainstorming the look for my stall!! I'm so excited for it, it's only 2 months away now! Here's the facebook event link (here), so check it out if you're in Melbourne and decide to be an early bird on the Sunday, August 26th (^__^) I'll have to be there to start setting up my stall before 7am, so that'll be interesting, since I usually go to bed at around 3-4am these days LOL. 

I'm also looking into making new stock for my little Etsy store, since it's been looking a little empty for a few months now since March (>.<) so there'll be new development on that soon! I'm thinking about having a set day each week to release new stock, but still figuring that out. I'm thinking either Wednesday or Sunday :) which days would you guys prefer? 

Any requests for future Etsy shop stock is more than welcome :) 


The Future

Also I wanna share with you guys some artwork that I painted for an art trade between my friends. An art trade is where we are randomly paired up with another person and we create art for them (in any form you wish!) under a given theme :) So far we're in our 3rd month of art trading and it's been fantastic as each person uploads their work for another, very inspirational! Here's mine for my June Art trade, with the theme: The Future

'The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams' - Eleanor Roosevelt 

So to simply explain my painting concept, it's up to you to make your dreams become reality, because your future rests in your hands to shape and grow. Anything's possible if you believe in it. :)  


Alright! That's my latest update from me :D I'm really wanting to get back into blogging regularly, so I hope I'll stick to it this time and make time for it weekly :) So much to share with you guys! (>.<) 

Let me know what's been happening for you during this super cold winter :D Are you guys on holidays? Still working? I wanna learn more about my readers, hope I haven't lost too many since I haven't been updating enough lately >.<! Thank you for those who still leave sweet and supportive comments now and then :) I really appreciate it & it makes my day! <3

Have a great weekend guys :) stay warm and snuggly!

Love, from Julie xox
