Hello there!
I am pretty excited to come back to writing this blog! I have been busy, busy, busy writing and painting and just general life. (Yes, I know, that happens too).
I had never set out for this blog to be anything, so I wasn't too disappointed when I let this slip on the wayside just a little lot.

Anyway, carrying on. I have decided to do a blog/vlogmas. I am undecided whether or not to do either or both yet, and I am certainly not prepared, but I am pushing forward and moving ahead.

Only 2 more days until it starts! Look forward to seeing you then!

New Designs on Etsy!

Well, I am busy filming all of my activity of the day for my 1st of every month videos, but I thought I would quickly share an update that I am in the middle of on Etsy.

I am putting a lot of new designs up on Etsy as we speak!

Mountain Men-Original Design

Baseball (can also do basketball, football or soccer ball!)

M&M's. Can do all the colors and they dont need the face on them!

Ben 10! 

Origami! Can do a lot of other animals as well :) 


So there are 6 shoes that will be up by the end of the day and I have about 22 designs that are ready for shoes but haven't made it on yet, so you can expect a lot in the coming months! 

Love to all! 


I saw the idea for doing a currently list off of Pinterest (Go follow me on Pinterest!) and instantly fell in love with it!! So, here is mine for right now! I will eventually get some cute graphics and stuff for it, but that will have to be at a later date :P

DATE: 31/7/14  TIME: 11:52
1. Listening: Right now, I am listening to Tip Toes by Jayme Dee. As soon as it stops, I will be listening to the crazy heavy wind and rain outside. 
2. Eating: Nothing! Which is weird, when I am in my studio, I am usually eating some sort of chocolate! 
3. Drinking: Solo! 
4. Wearing: My Video Game High School merchandise! (Hello, comfy pants and warm jacket!) 
5. Feeling: Oddly creative and in a writing mood, which is weird for midnight! 
6. Weather: See answer to number 1. Rain, rain, rain and cold. 
7. Wanting: Some good video editing software! Any suggestions? Comment below!
8. Needing: Not much at the moment! I am pretty content, at this very minute. 
9. Thinking: Thinking that I better hurry up and finish this before my laptop restarts for updates! 
10. Enjoying: The time by myself in my studio, despite it being cold! 

Love to all!

End of the month musings.

It has been so long since I last posted!! I have sat down to write posts, and then either worked on some art instead or worked on a few of the writing projects that I have got going on instead. But here I am! I am actually sitting down to write to you all now.
It's the last day of July today, I cant believe how quickly the year is flying by already! It's absolutely crazy, not just because I have started getting Christmas presents organised for my friends and family.
The weather has definitely reminded me that it is still only mid year with this winter being especially harsh on everyone. Only 1 month to go, until hopefully it starts getting sunny (for more than 2 days at a time!), flowers start to grow again and I can start wearing dresses without worrying about if I need to wear stockings underneath or whether or not to bring a jacket.

During summer, I always say I cant wait for winter to return, but during winter, I cannot wait for sun and warmth. I have a slight Vitamin D deficiency and being inside all the time, where I cant get any sun on my skin or actually have some sense of feeling in my fingers and toes can drive me to the point of near insanity sometimes.
I find on the sunny days that we get occasionally, that my spirit improves, I have more energy and I am excited to try new things. I have gotten better over the years, but usually during winter, I just want to shut off from the world, lie in bed all day, and ask that no one disturb me, but alas, that can't happen in todays society. I am pretty lucky not to have a main job, where my winter sadness can overcome people around me, but it can still affect my family and, in particular, my boyfriend.
But we trundle through life, don't we? Our moods and our lives go by in seasons, just like the weather, and I am glad that this is only three months of sadness, just so when the happy times come, I can really appreciate them.

We just need to open our eyes to the happy moments and the generous moments that are coming to us and be willing to take the opportunities that are arising before us every time some one tells us no, or we get sick, or a car breaks down, or someone speaks unkind words towards you.
For example, one month ago, I had just $9.56 to my name. Then 2 weeks ago, myana and pop gave me (and my sisters each) $100. It came at absolutely perfect timing. Then, my boyfriend found out he had passed all of his final exams and that he had now graduated. I then got an award for my volunteer services in the community.
All this was after my car broke down twice and then needed replacing, stress from T's exams, 4 bouts of sickness between us, me getting angry customers on Etsy, me slowly running out of money, and problems with friends and family.

I closed my shop for a month, feeling completely overwhelmed by it all, and not coping with all the orders I was getting and not being able to complete the orders or they were being regarded as not satisfactory. (It's open now!)
And instead, I focused on painting a lot of canvases, and put all my spare energy and sadness into the artwork. I felt I could just shift the world away from the problems I was facing and for the few hours I painted, that was all that mattered.

I'm slowly (very slowly) working on talking about how I'm feeling and instead of hiding behind 'work to do' excuses, so I can feel better in the end.

Well, I hope my ramblings have let you into a little piece of me. I hope to post more regularly, especially post things of my projects I am currently working on, and an upgrade is certainly coming up in the plans!
Please let me know what you think, and remember I am active on all areas of social media, so feel free to talk to me! I love having conversations with you guys!

Love to all!

Miss Owl B Shop discount!

It's coming up to the love season again! Yay! One month away! 
Because of that, I have got a sale in my shop, double yay! My boyfriend and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day as I like to hope that everyday should be a day that we show how much we love each other, but I do love some specials! I will have some Valentine's Day and Australia Day designs coming up in the next day or so, so look out for them!

Advertisement opportunity for Small Business owners!

I have been very busy over the last few week or so, trying to get everything organized as the new year rolls over.
One thing that I am SUPER excited about is my new magazine! It will be a small magazine that will go out to all of my buyers and also available for purchase separately. It is going to include some discounts for my shoes, interviews, details of behind the scenes at Miss Owl B, a catalogue of things I am selling as well as things in the works.One thing I would love to add to it is some advertisements for some small businesses.
If you are a small business that is needing some extra help send me an email!
You can also be featured, and we can do a small interview over e-mails and I can add you to the magazine. You will also get 2 free copies and a discount for a subscription to the magazine.

Here are my prices!
-Small (up to half page) advertisement: $5
-Large (between half and full page) advertisement: $10
-Interview and feature: $15

Just make sure you can sell around the world, as I live in Australia. If you dont sell here, its not much point :)

I look forward to your emails!

New books in the works!!

Have you ever read the beginning of a book and really wanted to know what happens next??
I did that today, except with the beginning of a book that I had started to write 2 years ago.

I was going through all of my old documents saved on my computer and came across these 3 stories.
I remember writing them, but I have no idea what was going through my head when I wrote them, and as I sat here reading them all, I realized that I really wanted to know what happens next! It was as if I was reading some one else's work!

I was excited to find them, and now I can work on them a little! My brother-in-law is a writer, and is currently editing his 4th book, has ideas for a 5th, and is constantly talking about it. I am loving hearing all the talk that goes into these books and works of art, that I am desperately wanting to create one myself!

I am pretty sure that my blog is going to change a little bit over the next year, and my content is going to change a decent amount, to change with how my own personal tastes change. I will keep in touch of how the progress is going, because I have a feeling that I am going to be quite obsessed with the thoughts of these books, as it grows over the next couple of months.
I am off to hopefully do another thousand words!
I should be doing one last post before Christmas with all of the Christmas decorations and what my studio looks like around this amazing time of year. :)

See you then!
