A quiet return

It's been a crazy year. The last time I posted on here I was having troubles with my scanner. I didn't mean to stop posting at all actually, even though my scanner was eventually fixed.
However, life has a way of throwing a spanner in the works at unexpected moments. For me, that spanner came in the form of full-time education and a near enough full-time job, which took up between 48 and 55 hours a week as well as my household, cat and hubby, so drawing (and even just coming to the blog) was slowly pushed out by all my other commitments.

But I'm back.
I'm very happy and proud to say I'm now a qualified beauty therapist and going for my level 3 in September. I've taken a cut in hours at work as well so I'm less busy and will be so even when I start my studies again.
I'm probably not going to be posting weekly as I was before. At one point I was cranking out so many drawings that it almost became a job in itself and that was not the point of why I started this blog.
But, I will be posting again, I've missed drawing and Echo's little weird world.

To my fellow bloggers, I'm sorry I haven't been around to comment and keep up with you! I will be visiting soon :)

Ever wandering,

P.S: And because I couldn't resist, here's a picture of Zephyr(us), a little lilac tabby who will be Odi's new brother in a couple of months!


Misery Loves Company

My scanning woes continue, so this might be the last post for a bit.


Oh dear...

It's the second of November now.
My printer is still not working.
There was no Halloween post.
The final drawing probably won't be posted until next week.

Odi is not impressed.


Oh well, time for the giveaway I guess, with a whopping 3 contestants :P

Tomorrow's Halloween!
Unfortunately I've got college all day, so my final post will be up a little later as I'm still finishing it up.
Don't worry, I've got a picture of a cat (so it's totally ok).

Leave a comment to make a chance of winning these goodies, along with your own selected drawing of Echo.

Happy Halloween!


Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
The king ordered for him to have a great fall
And all the king's horses and all the king's men,
never saw the lights of day again

A Wise Old Owl

A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard
Why can't we all be like that old bird?
