Ahh the month of May. I don’t even know where to begin! One thing is for sure, for once this month has NOT felt like it has passed in the blink of an eye – which is probably all due to the fact that every single day has been chocca-blocked full of plans and to-do’s. It’s been busy but fun!
Let’s start with biggest news – Homestyle magazine made a visit to my home for a photo shoot! I still don’t think it has fully sunk in that I am going to be featured in such a HUGE magazine. It’s also my first ever feature in the press so it’s all very new and exciting and I now have to sit and twiddle my thumbs for the next two months until the release date mid August. I cannot wait!
You can read my full write up about the shoot here.
I will be keeping you all updated and no doubt be shouting it from the roof tops closer to the release date!
Another challenge I have overcome this month was the daunting and terrifying process of getting my Youtube channel up and running. Once the initial fear factor of showing my face rubbed off and a whole lot of hours were spent practicing and tweaking my editing skills, I think it’s safe to say that I am finally starting to get the hang of it now. Hopefully with time it will all come more naturally to me, and perhaps I may even get more speedy at editing… The whole process from start to finish has literally taken a whole day per video… WHOAH.
You can find my Youtube Channel here!
Pretty please go and subscribe NOW.
I’ve done my fair share of crafts this month too! I felt really bad at the end of April when I realised that my two weeks away on business had left my Make & Create section rather neglected. I wanted to make sure I made it up to you all with some nifty little life hacks that are fun and creative, so below you can find the direct links AND a slideshow of all my latest makes!
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the whopping page reach I had on my Facebook page after posting my decoupage candles tutorial. The post reach was just shy of 6300 people and had a total of 23 shares! Amazing! I’m so glad you all liked the tutorial, thank you for all the fantastic feedback!
Lastly, a quick mention that I have fully updated my Visual Merchandising Portfolio up until mid May, so pop along for a nosey!
And as always, I would like to leave you with some of my favourite snaps from this month.
I’m ready for June!
