Art Journalling.

Art Journalling.

Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a good weekend so far and are looking after yourself.

As you will have noticed, the day that this post is going up is a Sunday instead of my usual Saturday, and that’s because I’ve had to make a small change to my blogging schedule due to other stuff going on, so for the next few months posts will be up on Sundays instead on Saturdays!

So, over the last few weeks you may have also noticed something new about me.. I finally took the plunge and dyed my hair pastel pink! I absolutely love it and I think it’s my favourite colour so far!

Another thing that has been happening recently is that I’ve been making more time to work in my sketchbook which is becoming a bit like an art journal, sketchbook and scrapbook combo.

To get an idea of the sort of thing I mean, here’s one of my Pinterest boards of inspiration!

Now that you have a bit of an idea as to what I’m jabbering on about, here’s a few reasons why I love art journalling and 100% recommend it to everyone who loves getting creative and struggles to get out of their own head after a long day:

  • It’s relaxing and a great way to practice mindfulness.
  • I can jot down any ideas and thoughts I’ve had during the day.
  • It’s a way for me to practice and improve my creative skills.
  • It’s like a photo album of memories and thoughts you can look back on.

So now that you know some of the many reasons why I love art journalling, why don’t you grab yourself a cuppa, sit down, get out your art supplies and journal with me! And even if you’ve never tried journalling or are just curious as to what my sketchbook looks like, you can check out the video and photos below!

Here’s some of my favourite spreads, some are still works in progress that I plan on coming back to very soon!

You may have noticed that when it comes to my journal there isn’t huge amounts of text or writing, and there’s two reasons for that. One being that I don’t always know what to write. Two, I have never been good at writing down my exact thoughts, so instead I express them through other things like quotes. Another thing you will have noticed is that I like to feature unique words in my journal spreads, and that’s because I like finding words that I’ve never heard of before that I think are pretty and then research some that fit with the theme of my pages.

My love for journalling and working in my sketchbook has always been there, and over the last few weeks and months I’ve been dedicating more and more time to it and it’s done wonders for managing my mental health. Not to mention that I get to have a very pretty sketchbook after.

What’s your favourite spread in my journal/sketchbook? Do you have your own sketchbook or journal you like to work in? If you do, I’d love to see them, just tag me on instagram (@theweightofmyworlds) !

Well, that’s all from me for today my lovelies! Have a great rest of your weekend!

Love,

My House At Christmas

My House At Christmas

Christmas is nearly here!! And that means that homes all over the globe are sparkling with fairy lights, tinsel, ornaments and baubles! Ever wanted to look at other people’s homes at Christmas time to see how they decorate?

Well, this year I’m going to give you a little peak of my home and it’s many decorations! Anyone that knows me knows that the Christmas tree has been up since the beginning of November..(We have no shame at all!) and that this is my family’s favourite time of year.

So, before I get started on this little home tour, here’s a gorgeous Pinterest board I’ve made of Christmas decorations, table settings and general festive loveliness!

Now you’ve seen some pretty pictures to get you in an even more festive mood, here’s what my home looks like at this time of year!

Here’s most of my house’s decorations!

Here’s my favourite photos from my Christmas Decorations!

I can’t help but feel like that last photo is a Christmas Card waiting to happen haha!

So that’s my home at this time of year! Believe it or not we usually have even more trees and decorations, but we’ve been having work done on the house and it’s only just finished. What’s your favourite Christmas decoration? I love our Santa and our trees!!

Merry Christmas lovelies!! Love,
