#CreativeKickstart February

#CreativeKickstart is a hashtag to share what we've been making and being inspired by each month, created by my merfriend Cuttlefishlove. I kept up with it for a few months last year but then lost track. This year I want to post a photo for each month. I think it will be really interesting to look back at the end of the year and see my creative journey!

A little while ago I went to Cardiff. I had visited this city before, but not for a long time, and I'd never been able to properly explore it. It was wonderful to get to do all the things I wanted to, and wander around, and really get to see the city.

Mermaid Thrift Haul

I recently tidied the shelf I keep most of my mermaid treasures on, and thought to myself "I have some room for more mermaid things now". Of course this was tempting fate, because I promptly found all of the mermaid things while thrifting.

Awakening of Spring

Spring is probably my favourite season, although it is a close tie with the rich colours and abundant fungi of Autumn. I love all the beautiful softly hued Spring flowers, the lush green of the new leafed woodlands, the feeling that the earth is waking up from a long sleep and rejoicing.

101 in 1001, Rebooted

Back in October, I wrote out and started my first 101 in 1001 list. For a while, I was merrily working my way through the list, and then at some point after the new year it started to feel like a bit of a chore. I'd also forgotten to write update posts on my progress, which was something I wanted to do for myself as much as for the people who read my blog. Looking back through the list, I realised that some of it just wasn't relevant to me any more, and some of it was frankly just too ambitious for me right now. I've been through a lot of personal growth and a lot of changes recently, so some things which were important to me in October have lost their significance for me. I've decided to re-start my 101 in 1001 challenge, as of today.
