Absence of Craft Review: Weeks 20, 21 and 22.... Resulting in a Wednesday Recap of life.

I'm horrified to say that My New Year's Resolution has finally failed. I have proved to myself that I cannot do a craft related activity every single day, at least not in the lifestyle I currently lead.
This is down to Exams.
I despise them.

So, over the last three weeks, ever since all of my Art has been handed in, and the Exam season fully kicked off, this is the sum total of my Art and Craft:

This is Lonnie. He has been met before.

This is Hana and she's completely awesome, and I NEED to get around to giving her her own post...

This was actually an experiment done on the back of an envelope.... subconsciously inspired by this video

I also Painted the words 'Don't Panic' onto my toes, but I'm not going to show that because I hate my feet.
So yeah. Distinct lack of Craftiness.

So here is a quick review of what I did today:

I revised The Manchurian Crisis and The Italian invasion of Abyssinia.
We Learnt Circle Theorems.
I completed a survey about my school in the most negative way possible.
Me and a Friend went and had Hot chocolate after school.
I had a nap.
I finished The Philosopher's stone on Pottermore (further blog post should/WILL follow).
I will be watching both the New series of Lewis, and the very old series (i.e., the first one, aired 1972) of  M*A*S*H.
And I started insanely tidying my room for no apparent reason.

So I will return to that.

And I will leave you with this short clip of hilarity from said old series of M*A*S*H.


  1. Don't feel bad about the resolution, I find personally that it's very hard to do something crafty everyday, even if it is possible to fit it in around work (or in your case school/exams etc) some days of the year you will just be less inspired and thats fine! I'm impressed you've kept it up this long with all the studying you've been doing, well done! :)

  2. Oh also, I was wondering.. the character drawings you do for your stories, are they part of your exam work? if so I was wondering if you were planning on continuing with them after the exams, I only ask because I think you're on to a good thing there, I think you have some really interesting character ideas, and I look forward to hearing more about Hana. Keep up the good work, you've got talent! :) x

    1. Firstly, Thank you for your comments :) It means a lot to know that you've taken time to do so.
      Secondly, Thank you for your kind words. I was feeling pretty bad, but I do realise now that it was a kind of unacheivable Resolution...
      Thirdly, My character paintings have absolutely nothing to do with my GCSE's. I do them for the joy of painting, so they're unlikely to stop until I've done all of them. I keep meaning to do a post on my exam work, but this isn't part of it. My exam work is much more real-life based.... sort of ;)
      Fourthly, Thank you for your compliments, and Hana should be up very soon. :)

    2. That's awesome, it's great to have a seperate creative outlet to keep you inspired! :) Keep up the good work and don't let the exams drive you too mental, they'll be over soon :) x

    3. To let them drive me mental would require me being sane to begin with.... That criteria, I do not, and have never, fit ;)
