I haven’t posted as regularly as I should, but I do find it hard juggling my blog along with Facebook, twitter, tumblr and Etsy. I hope that this will be changing now that I am attending Wolverhampton Uni to do Art and Design. My life is full of Art right now, so there’s rarely a time when I am not creating something new.
In my foundation year we have been asked to create an art journal through out the year. I have decided to dedicate myself to this, and to never rip a page out. Ever! This has been difficult for me in the past as although my artwork does get a lot of positive comments, like most artists I always feel like I can do better/ or that it isn’t good enough. I am not doing this any more. The one thing I have learnt while being at Uni is that you have to keep your progress. Even if you’re not a fan of what you have done, it’ll become useful to you one way or another in the future.
I have only been at Uni for a couple of weeks but already I have learnt a lot. I can’t wait to adapt the skills I am learning into Cally’s Creations. There’s a lot of places where my business needs to be polished up, and I am looking forward to making those changes and giving it everything I can.
I will be posting regular updates on my art journalling and progression as an artist, so stay tuned!

Today is the start of a huge sale over at Cally’s Creations on Etsy and Facebook. I have decided to offer a huge 50% off on orders over £8.00 to get ready for some new stock and to save some pennies for when I start University in September.
You can purchase anything in my shop (even the items already on sale) and get 50% off by using coupon code ‘CALLY50’ when checking out. Alternately you can purchase through Facebook my messaging me. The offer is open internationally and ends at midnight on the 30th of November, 2013 (which is perfect if you’re shopping for Christmas!)
I am looking forward to sharing new projects and artwork with you in the near future 🙂
Lately I have been doing some doodling/ sketching to try and note down new ideas for paintings and do give myself some more practice.
The reason I have been doing this is because I am going to be starting an Art and Design course in September. I am so excited to learn and develop my skills and share it with all of you! I have been quite ill the last 8 months with severe leg and back pain – and my artwork has really helped me through out this stressful time.
I hope you have enjoyed looking an these sketches – there will be plenty more updates coming soon! I will be trying all sorts of new creative skills once I start my course, which I can’t wait to do and share with you.

Here I have used tin cans, pasted paper around them, painted them with some cute colours and added a 3D paper flower and leaves around for decoration.
Next time I am going to line the insides, too. Can’t wait to make more.

That’s right! I have started my Christmas crafting early. I usually forget to start my Christmas handmade pieces and before I know it, it’s late November and I’ve missed my chance. This year I have started really early to get some Christmas products in my Etsy shop.
I have been making…..
These are just a couple of items I have made – there will be plenty more to come in the next few months 🙂

Hi all! I have been really busy the last couple of days making products to go in a new shop opening in Wolverhampton called The Shop in the Square. It is a new shop opening on Saturday 22nd of June selling handmade items from local start up businesses.
I feel really lucky to have the opportunity to have some of my creations in this shop amongst many other wonderful artists and crafters. I will be selling mini canvases, paper flower cards, paper flower magnets and gift tags. Here are a couple of my items going on sale Saturday:
These items will also be available to buy in my etsy shop soon so watch this space! 🙂
