2015 is here, huzzah! Yes, I am aware that it is January 10th already – if I was a good blogger I would have had this post scheduled for 9am January 1st but hey, better late than never, right? 😉 So! First things first, how did I do with last year’s resolutions? 2014 resolutions! Year of code I….kind of did this? Sort of. I did spend some time on Treehouse, but mostly my skills improved through doing. I built nine client sites in 2014, and definitely…Continue Reading “2014 Resolutions & Goals for 2015”
Dear Parks and Recreation, Thank you, thank you, thank you. I never knew I could love a cast of people so hard. Love Sarah See other Friday Thanks here.
Oops, I meant to write this in October and just never made the time! Oh well, better late than never, no? Here’s the third quarter of our Colour 365 – orange, red and pink. These colours were pretty fun to do, much more bright and vibrant than the beginning of the year! January – March | April – June July was a fun month that involved a trip to Cornwall and some wonderful weather. It wasn’t hard to find orange things to photograph, which is…Continue Reading “Colour 365 – Quarterly Round Up”
Issue 8. Crikey. When I first had the idea for Télégramme way back when in 2010 I thought it would be easy, in all honesty. Find some photos I liked, put them in a layout: Boom. Magazine. In reality – Télégramme is hard work. The weirder Flickr gets the harder it becomes, too, as 90% of my photos are still sourced from there. But it’s done and I’m still proud of it 🙂 If you like photography I suggest you give it a read (it…Continue Reading “Télégramme Magazine – Issue 8”
After I shaved my head, we headed down to Gwdihw (pronounced good-e-hue) for a much needed gin. Gwdihw is Welsh for owl, which is appropriate as they happened to have some furry friends from the local owl sanctuary there and you could pet them. For free. I’ve had “pet a tiny owl” on my Life List ever since seeing this amazing video… so you’d better believe I petted that owl. I’m not sure if you can tell from my very understated expression, but I was a little…Continue Reading “Life List: Pet A Tiny Owl”

I added “learn how to french braid my hair” to my 31 for 31, not really thinking about the fact that I was due to shave my head in August and that my hair probably wouldn’t be long enough by June 2015 to attempt it. If you’re wondering if I am particularly good at forward planning, I think this is perhaps your answer. Luckily, I realised ahead of time and french braiding, it turns out, is not that difficult to learn. The photo below was my…Continue Reading “Life List / 31 for 31: Learn How to French Braid My Hair”

Dear Bluestone, Thanks for having zero phone signal. It made it much easier to switch off for a couple of days, which I greatly appreciated. Your portion sizes are crazy, but your digital detox therapy is spot on. Love Sarah See other Friday Thanks here.
5 Goals for August [3/5] Cook 5 new recipes [5/5] Read 5 library books [5/5] Watch 5 of my 31 for 31 films [5/5] Finish the top secret project for Arthur’s birthday Complete the first draft of Télégramme Oh, August. I had such grand plans for you but it didn’t quite work out like that. Sometimes these goals are a lesson in patience and failure, I find. I didn’t finish Télégramme (altho I did, at least, start it), I didn’t finish Arthur’s present and I…Continue Reading “Monthly Goals: August & September”
