Tears and Texts ♥

So I had intended on getting another ridiculously early night, but then my phone literally would not stop buzzing with messages (little miss popular... for once!) so I got out of bed and decided to get on with some logbook work instead. And no, you didn't misread that. I genuinely am sat here on the floor with some Imelda May tunes on full blast and my logbook open in front of me. and my laptop, clearly!

Bit of a slow day at the ol' college today. I may have slightly sorted my first official HND project. I'll give you a clue as to what it's about...


just in case you STILL didn't work it out from that wonderful clue... it's all things Pin-up related... ok?

so I spent the morning chatting to my tutor Ian all about the wonders of Pin-up as he sat flicking through the big Gil Elvgren book. He seemed to like my initial ideas which is a super duper sign, here's hoping I can convince the other tutors and actually deliver on the final pieces!

Ah yes, on a not so happy note, I had to go for my blood test today. Now I may have mentioned in the past that I have a teeny tiny (aka massively huge and ridiculously crazy) phobia of needles. 

So a blood test isn't exactly something i'd go strolling into with a big grin on my face. As per usual I freaked out big time with the crazy breathing and the shaking hands/knees. I wasn't exactly a pretty sight in the waiting room I can tell you that much! 

So I sat down in the chair and bam... the stupid tears started to fall. Now I know it only stings for a second and that it's all necessary blah blah blah. But let me tell you, when you have a phobia of something it doesn't make the least bit of difference how much people (mum, dad, friends, tutors, twitterers) tell you it'll all be fine, it doesn't stop you spazzing out ANY LESS!!!

it was ok though, obviously! Even if she did take 5 little capsules of my blood. 5... I mean, what the hell?! It bloody well did sting as well! I know i'm a major wimp when it comes to pain but yes... in my opinion it did hurt, it was very much an 'ouch' moment for me! The only thing that would console me was a big slice of sponge cake from the Alpine cafe at the hospital. It worked. Cake always works. FACT! thanks mum 

Oh oh in other news. Looooooook!


I promised you key rings and here they are! The designs aren't final yet, and i can't make my mind up between the square/circle for the shoe ones, but these will probably make up the first batch. They're not up for sale yet either since i'm having 'issues' with my etsy shop... and my mother's credit card. 

Long story. Anyway, hopefully once i've been to my bank and begged them for a card in my own name the shop will be up and running and these little dudes will go on sale along with a few other bits and bobs. As I always say in reference to the shop... 'stay tuned'

Ah, my phone is buzzing. Again. Best go.

That's all folks, tata for now
