Long time followers will know that I’m notoriously bad at coming up with anything spooky for Halloween. And this year is no exception – true to form, I couldn’t think of anything even remotely scary to draw. So instead, here are some mystic moon phases to ring in October. 😀 I’m a bit sad about
The world is still in the midst of a pandemic and those heavy feelings are present all the time, but spring is here and somehow seeing the flowers bloom has managed to cut through even the darkest of days. The evenings are getting longer, the air is balmy and the weather has been spectacular lately.
I know it’s the height of winter, but we had some beautiful sunny days last week and all I could think about was how nice it’ll be to sit outdoors and enjoy the flowers once spring rolls around. Sadly these days, thoughts like that are always followed by ‘what if we’re not allowed to go
There were so many tea puns that ran through my head while I was drawing this. 😀 I’ll spare you the terrible dad jokes, but needless to say, tea is one of my favourite things because it makes me feel warm and cosy, AND because it lends itself to so many bad jokes (or good,
My heart breaks with all the pain being felt in the world at the moment.

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a rut but haven’t been in the right headspace to pull yourself out? I feel like this has been me for the last year at least. Secretly, I’ve always longed to create the kind of painterly artworks I see other artists dream up; art that’s full of layers,
It’s crazy and scary how much has changed in the space of a month. At the start of March, we had just gotten over the worst of the bushfires and I was looking forward to autumn outings in the cooler weather. Fast forward to now and the world is in lockdown. Fred and I are
March is all about rainbows this year! We just had Mardi Gras, St Patrick’s Day is on its way and there’s a whole week of on-again-off-again rain ahead… the perfect conditions for rainbow spotting. 🙂 After a crazy summer filled with bushfires, I’m really looking forward to the cooler weather and the change in seasons.
Seriously? It’s already February? I know everyone says January feels long, but it flew by for me. And it’s crazy that we’re already a month into the new year and I haven’t done anything. Nada. Why doesn’t life come with a pause button? February traditionally means Valentines Day, but those of you who know me
I don’t know if it’s the turn of the decade (say what??) or the fact that the next 10 years will make up most of Lauren’s childhood, but lately I’ve been getting nostalgic for things that I loved from when I was a kid. Like Rainbow Brite and Sweet Secrets lockets and Popples. And don’t
