Human traces







I made some chocolate chip cookies yesterday and it was my first baking fail! The cookie mix spread because I loaded too much on to eahc portion so I ended up with a tray bake! I had to cut the cookies out with a cutter which I usually hate doing as you get a lot of waste just to produce the neatest round cookie, but luckily Graham was on hand to eat all the offcuts :)

I've also been busy designing my christmas cards and have the first design printed and ready! I've used watercolour illustrations for this one, and I think I'll design three different cards. I'm planning on selling these on Etsy so I better get a move on!

I also got my hair cut today, finally! I've got my graduation ceremony next week and wanted to look a bit smarter, so I expect I'll put a photo up soon. I've got a couple of blog posts in the works and I also need to get some of my christmassy posts organised... anyone else feel like they've got too much to do and not enough motivation? I get lost in the world of the internet too much and don't get anything done! How do you guys stop procrastination? xo

    1. Hi Beeta! Thank you so much! It probably took about an hour to draw and colour the design :) xx

  5. Those cookies made me laugh, I once decided to make cookies with mini marshmallows in and the same thing happened to them.. they ended up turning into one giant baking tray shaped mess! xx
