What I've been up to

Hello everyone!!

I know I've been neglecting my blog, not writing, not updating the links to my pictures (which are now living happily after at ipernity), etc etc.

So I thought that since I'm feeling a bit inspired tonight, it would be a good time to let you know what I've been up to all this time.

Those of you who visit my etsy store regularly, might have seen that I've been, slowly but steadily, adding more items to my shop.

For those of you who are now discovering this blog, I am in love with stationery, and making notebooks is one of my favourite hobbies. 

For a while now I have been focusing mainly on making refills for Midori's Traveler's Notebooks, both the large and the Passport size. I really enjoy trying out different kinds of paper, paper that is hard to get, and coming up with cover designs and colours that will set your notebook apart.

But notebooks aren't the only thing I enjoy. I'm also designing blog headers and etsy banners.
As a matter of fact, this month I was commissioned by Meredith to design the header for her blog The Palette Muse. Meredith told me she really liked my handpainted Sakura header, but instead of the pink hues and cherry blossoms, she wanted it in blue and with dandelions.

Not a problem!

The end result is an exclusive watercolour header that she really likes, and that I really enjoyed painting.
Now go and visit her blog! ;)

What's happened to my pictures?

I thought I should write a quick update and let you know why you're not being able to view my pictures at the moment.

After much ruminating, I finally took the big decision to leave Flickr, as I wasn't happy with the service anymore (will blog about it at a later time).

Like many unhappy Flickr users, I've also emigrated to Ipernity, which has an interface very much like the 'old' Flickr used to have. 

I have transferred all (except some that were lost during transition, yet another story) my photos there.
This means that I will have to manually edit the url of every single image on here that was hosted in the old site.
Since this process might take a while, I'm not sure when all images will be restored.

Ah, yes. this is my Ipernity link:

Do come by and visit, even though I'm still settling in ;)
