November Favourites

Every month I share with you some of my favourites, so heres my picks from November!

Karin Markers

I cannot get enough of these beautiful pens.

If you are a part of the lettering community on Instagram, I’m 99% sure that you will have heard of these pens before because they are currently all the rage, and for good reason!

If you aren’t part of the lettering community on Instagram or are but haven’t come across them Karin Markers are brush pens and in my opionion one of the most versatile pens out there. I really cannot fault them.

User friendly, versatile and vibrant, these markers can be used in so many different ways.

From flawless blending, watercour painting and lettering that are a pleasure to use and are perfect for both beginners and experienced artists alike.

The packaging is beautiful and the delivery is super fast

Hadestown

Hadestown is a brilliant musical and has been a favorite of mine for the past year or so. This year it was given a production at the National Theatre in London and I was lucky enough to go and see it. What a show! It’s based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice set to a folk score. If you can I would recommend getting down to see it before its run ends on 26th Jan 2019! It boasts a stellar cast including Amber Gray, Reeve Carney and Eva Noblezada.

Cricut Explore Air 2

After seeing MeganNicoleLettering using this contraption to make beautiful vinyl designs I decided I had to invest in one myself and I have not been disappointed.

Although the machine is expensive, (I paid £249 for mine in a bundle that included tools and cutting mats) it is well worth the money. It’s so easy and fun to use and there is so much you can do with it. I believe it cuts over 100 different materials, there is so much fun an experimenting to be had with this.

It is bluetooth enabled so you can bluetooth designs straight from your ipad to cut through the Cricut Design App, you can also send things to it from your desktop via USB!

So although it’s expensive, as I said before it is well worth splashing the cash as it makes creating professional designs so easy and is quite frankly just fun to watch!
