I look at my work table (which is an absolute mess – magazine cuttings, watercolours, brushes and scraps all over the surface), take a seat, and think; “What should I make today?”
Almost every evening I sit down and do something creative. As my days are made of looking after a toddler and running errands and cleaning the house and cooking, my evenings are incredibly important for me to unwind, enjoy doing the things I love, and maybe binge on Netflix.
I have many notebooks but nothing like my old SMASH book. I was one of those who dived deep into the craze of ‘SMASH booking’ – a type of art journalling/ commonplacing in pretty notebooks called ‘SMASH books’.
