A week in Photos

I really need to find a good spot (and some sunlight!) for outfit photos! I just can't bring myself to post another set of boring beige walls. The scenery around here is gorgeous, but I leave for work when its dark and come home just in time for the sunset. Hmph. I might have to get creative with the coffee breaks and my trusty old tripod (Here's a free work tip guys: When it's your first week at a new job daily self-portraits are a great way to win friends and influence colleagues!!)**

In the meantime I thought I'd share five snaps from my week. 
-an unforgettable book and tea
- my first (almost missed!) shot of the Welcome to BC sign. This involved some reckless stunt driving that I do not condone! 
-the beginning of a quick dance sketch
- rocks at the creek beside my new apartment (gawd...IT'S FEBRUARY!!! I heart BC) 
- my adorable little Binx, who I miss snuggling with and am already hatching plans to cat-nap
What have been your favourite things this week?

** Totally kidding, I don't encourage you to do this! However, if you do... be a friend and share! :)


  1. Lovely photos. Cute cat. Awesome drawing!

  2. Oh I love snapshots into other peoples' lives. You are an amazing artist. That sketch! Wow. I would frame that.

  3. Your kitty is so cute! Love the stacked rocks :-)

    I know what you mean, it's too dark to take photos without the horror of flash at the moment. I'd rather not!


  4. Your kitty is sooo cute!!! I want one!! lol Lovely photos! Glad to see you're making yourself at home :)


  5. I agree, bring on the sunlight! I hate getting home from work when it's dark out, plus the snow doesnt help :(


  6. I know exactly what you mean about the sunlight! It has been so dreadful taking pictures inside all day with artificial light. Loving the sketches!

  7. great photos! I'm in the same boat with outfit photos, tripod is totally the way to go. Or if you're lucky, you might find a coworker who has secret photgraphy skills ;)

  8. Aw, cutie photos! I love the welcome shot!! As for getting out to do photos, my only advice is to take advantage of weekends! I fully admit to dressing back up in outfits I wore throughout the week to photograph on the weekends! It's my only way of getting through until we have SUNLIGHT in the early evenings! Come onnnn spring! Hope you're settling in well, m'dear! xo!

  9. love these pictures! love the mug one and the drawing xx

  10. Your sketch is beautiful! you are so talented! I'd love to see more!



Thanks for all your lovely comments, they never fail to make my day! xx
