Thank you Aly!

I went to the shop and got myself some colourful macaroons (OK - a lot of macaroons! ) ... it's pure sugar, but whatevs.



I started feeling a bit stressed and nervous... I only have one shift for next week, while other people have 5 or 6. I don't know why - is it because I'm leaving in September? I should have handed in my notice like a few days before I move, but I wanted to be 'fair', so they have enough time to find somebody to replace me... well, that's what I get in return. It sucks, because I need something to take my mind off things... I go crazy when I'm alone all day every day.

Why am I feeling so nervous? I think it finally hit me that I'm moving and I have no clue what to do with myself. I should be excited about all this, but I'm so scared.

Eh it's gonna be fine..

Let's munch some sugar.

OK - getting that many macaroons wasn't the best idea I've ever had...

I'm feeling a bit sick now.

I blame Bim for posting the pic of that yummy cake. It released my sugar cravings.

I have been known to eat too many sweets when I'm stressed. It's a thing.

Better than - - - other things.

Very true... I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but today I really went for it.

I'd still eat that cake.

Great artwork,Snuff! I know you love tattoos,so have you ever considered apprenticing and becoming a tattoo artist as a career?

Edit: At your age you could travel the world eventually and get paid great money for doing something you love..just a thought.

Thank you DR!

I'm thinking about it... I did an apprenticeship a few years ago, but it was a dodgy studio and the worst job I've ever had haha, so I gave up after a few months. I'm still not convinced - tattoo craft is very old fashioned, and it's difficult to get a good apprenticeship, unless you 'know' someone etc... It's always unpaid, and that's another issue for me. I'm also an impatient person, and I'm terrified of first few years I'd have to tattoo all the walk-ins, so stars, hearts, names... I don't know. There's nothing wrong with that, but I'm just not good with people. And all the new folks I'd have to meet every day... shudder. I LOVE tattoos, but I'm not 100% sure that's what I want to do, and I don't think anyone should become a tattoo artist because it's 'better than nothing'.

But at the same time I think... hey, it's better than nothing?

Also I was recently told that 26yo is 'too old' for an apprentice.

I don't know. My biggest dream is to do freelance illustration, lots of different commissions, screenprints and large scale stuff - murals, graffiti etc.

But I'm not good enough, so I don't think it's ever gonna happen.

I will think of something...

That's not true. I personally know great artists that didn't get started until in their 30's and 40's.

I know... First world problems...

I'm actually relieved to think about this sort of stuff... Not so long ago, I was suicidal and convinced that I'm good for nothing in life, but today I hope that everything will work out...

Iím Ďintoí poetry at the moment, Snufkin. I read this and thought of you:


Believing in You
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

Never stop believing in yourself.
When others doubt, don't you.
Do what you love to do,
No one knows better than you.

Life is too short to live others' dreams
Follow your own dream
Push yourself to reach your goals
And live the life you once dreamed.

Trust your instincts.
Be true to yourself.
You know what is right for you.
Never give up or give in.

Forget the words "I don't know how".
You can learn,
You can research,
You can do.

Your mind is powerful.
When you believe you can.
You will find a way
You won't waste a day.

Persist and persevere
Do not fear
Because if you believe in you
You will find dreams can come true.

May all your dreams turn into goals,
Believe in yourself.
And remember, all of life is a choice.
The decision is up to you.

Believe in Yourself, Dare To Be
Whatever You Want To Be!



I believe in you Snufkin!

I'd like to think that too, it's just all the apprentice I know are teens, and I've met this artist who told me that at my age he wouldn't do it LOL.

I was also told by the girl who inked my back, that tattoo artists are usually extroverts, and she can feel the 'negative vibe' from me.

Idk - I guess I just had a bad start to tattooing.

Snufkin...My daddy sang this song to me (among many other Sinatra songs) and I still sing it today and I sound like this. Here is another gift for you!♡

"Ker plop"

Chloe, Iíve just looked up that song.....itís awesome. Here are the lyrics, Snufkin: kerplop!


"High Hopes"

Next time you're found, with your chin on the ground
There a lot to be learned, so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can't
Move a rubber tree plant

But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
He's got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time you're gettin' low
'stead of lettin' go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call, and your back's to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin' that dam

'cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time you're feelin' bad
'stead of feelin' sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

All problems just a toy balloon
They'll be bursted soon
They're just bound to go pop
Oops there goes another problem kerplop!


Aaahhhh, after listening to the song, it will turn into an ear-mole.....canít stop hearing it, itís a lovely tune.

Hey, Snufkin...
I bet you could illustrate that song adding your own special style!
Hint for your first sketch:
Just keep those "high apple pie in the sky" hopes! ♡
