As a creative person, I love buying art, or things with people's art on, or handmade things. I follow a lot of artists and illustrators and makers on Instagram so I have a daily dose of temptation and art lust. Sadly I can't always buy every piece I want-although I'm already planning my collection for when I'm rich and have a big house-but whenever I can spare my pennies, I try to support artists and makers.
I also ordered some prints from Flotsam and Jetsam, a lovely shop selling prints, art objects and other goodies which all have a sea theme. Of course this really appeals to the mermaid in me! I instantly fell in love with the Storm in a Teacup tattoo style print, I think it is a wonderful image and a good reminder that things are rarely as bad as they seem. I also got the "We are made of star dust" print, because I really like the calligraphy style lettering on the watercolour background, and I love the sentiment behind the words. I bought these while Flotsam and Jetsam were offering a discount code, so they were even more inexpensive than usual, but their prices are always extremely reasonable. I think I will probably be buying from them again in future, I just love their aesthetic.
