They said I'd forget her face.

Lately, people keep saying to me: 'Sarah. Where DO you find the time?' My stock answer tends to be 'Well, I don't have a boyfriend, so.' But genuinely. I don't know? For the longest time my parents used to say that my sister and I were really different because she can't sit still and I, well, sit still kind of a lot. Except then I realised that, even if I'm sitting down, I'm pretty much incapable of doing less than two things at once. If I'm watching TV I'm normally writing a blog entry or making jewellery or drawing or tidying or editing photographs... oh. And tweeting, but that's a given. It doesn't really count. But yeah, I don't really like wasted time. Hence this blog, that blog (oh and that blog) and the Etsy shop - all on top of a pretty demanding day job. I'm just saying, I wouldn't MIND winning the lottery.

Anyway, I've talked about the jewellery shop before - which is going pretty well, thank you, and there's a 20% off Christmas Sale on right now if you use the code XMASSALE so get on that business as it's going to expire at the end of the month.

The other thing that I've been doing quite a lot of lately is illustrations. When I changed my blog layout a few months back, I got a lot of positive comments on my little drawings and so I had to set up a bit of a mini-shop, because as much as I'd love to do free blogger portraits for everyone on the internets, I don't really have all that much spare time, as I mentioned. But if people pay me money I will make time! Here are some of the ones I've done recently...

Sarah from A Million Dresses (and her new husband!) - this picture was featured as part of her (AMAZING) wedding post on Rock 'n' Roll Bride.


Sorting out www.essbeevee.com is on my list this year too so I can finally have somewhere proper to put them all. But for now, if you're interested, click here for more info or just send me an email!

  1. Oh my you are so clever, self-motivated and productive! I seem to be busy all the time but never productive (I'm pretty sure there's a difference between the two!)

    Your drawings are just darling, and I hope you make squllions of pounds from your obvious talents, there have got to be perks for all the hard work right! :)

  2. Wow, that is a LOT of things you manage to get done. I love the drawings and am now checking out your etsy shop. I found you on twitter via Maria from Frills 'n' Spills and am loving reading this blog. The only thing is, I'm having difficulty actually seeing the words as they are so faint!

  3. Tamara, it may be your screen resolution, I've never had a problem. If you're really struggling you can highlight the text to read though.

    And thanks! :)

  5. You are so ridiculously talented and pretty, sometimes it is difficult to be friends with you. But you redeem yourself by being so awesome.

  6. I love these drawings, I wish I had the artistic talent but I really don't, my drawings are comical at best. I'm like you as well, I have a hard time just sitting, I always feel like I need to be doing something or my mind will explode because it is always racing. It is amazing how much time boyfriends take up... seriously.

    You are a talented one!

  11. They are absolutely lovely, I was alerted to them by Alex, her portrait is brilliant. I used to draw loads, but haven't really for years, I don't know why. I keep meaning to start again, but then I'd have to cut down on my internet/reading/nail polish/family time...

    (erm, those weren't really in order of priority)
