The most interesting day of the week for me is always Sunday. That is my first day-off from my normal day-job, which means the first proper working day as an illustrator and surface pattern designer. So if I am able to, I like to start it early, do a bit of work and then follow the rest of my plans – which is usually more work or meeting my Sister.
I thought I’d make a series about how my Sundays look like, and the reasons for that:
* I have a really bad memory, so I’d like to have sg like a diary, but I cannot do that on paper, because I’d love to insert photos, but my printer is broken..
* Also I’d like to share useful things with you, like how to make yourself happy with a tiny thing (e.g. the joy of making a cup of coffee), places to visit (mostly in London, because I live here), what books or blogs to read etc.
Hi Everyone – I am wondering if anyone reads this blog at all actually..? Well, I decided to write it mainly because of myself, and it’s good for me to have this every Sunday to take care of, but if there would be readers also, I would make some tutorials, step by steps, so useful things too 🙂
So please, if you’re around, let me know if you’d be interested in that kind of thing – if you want, you can even leave some things you’d like me to talk about!
But for now let’s get back to the normal Sunday post! I have skipped last Sunday, because I was at home in Hungary, and I didn’t feel like writing – and because this blog is made for fun, I did not want to force myself to write just because it was ‘Sunday-is-my-favourite-day’. But here I am today 🙂
I have written a strict to-do-list for myself yesterday – that is important so I can make the most of my day, time limit is definitely useful for me, otherwise I keep checking what’s happening on Instagram for example.. 🙂
So I got up at 4:30 – because as you know now, Sundays are my favourite, and I am the most active in the mornings, and I already had this list yay 🙂 I think I’m actually going to write the blogpost based on my list with the timings – it might be useful for you as well!
4:30 – 5:00 Coffee and Frannerd’s newest video. I love her videos, very easygoing, but very useful!
5:00 – 7:00 Adjusting some work as requested, then writing this post. Doing some research (bus timetable checking and things like that) and writing some emails.
One of my latest card-designs, part of my 2017 Christmas range, but I was told it’s not very christmassy, and I think I have to agree, so I changed it to a birthday card. I hope it will be christmassy enough together with the stickers I am going to print, so the whole collection with snowflakes and things like that will be better 🙂
7:00 – 8:00 Breakfast – washing up from yesterday before it, that’s why I need a whole hour.. oops.
8:00 – 9:00 Talking to my Mum and organising the flat – it’s always a mess by Sunday (ok, let’s be fair to my Fiancé, my stuff is a mess, he’s fine, but also he has a lot less stuff to keep organised in my defence 🙂 )
9:00 – 12:00 Working on a commission (a label for jars of homemade goodies like jam, dried herbs – I love these things 🙂 ) and developing my Christmas stickers.
12:00 – 13:00 Talking to my Sister, lunch, little bit of reading (Harry Potter of course..).
13:00 – 14:00 Relaxing time – mainly because early afternoon is my weakest time, I cannot function properly, so I am unable to work, I have to do either cleaning or relaxing. Usually even longer, but I always try to fix this problem with another cup of coffee 🙂
14:00. Reviewing my to-do-list, trying to sort out when to finish my half-finished things. I’ve got still 6 hours to go, until my Love’s coming home from work, so I have to use these hours well.
experimenting with my new shiny golden acrylic paint 🙂 (I know you cannot really tell it is shiny, but it is 🙂 )
more indigo in my sketchbook. see the previous one here
18:00 – 19:00 Talking to a Friend and my Dad and organising a bit more – the flat is still a mess….. But during organising, I realised I want to bake a cake… So I did.. 🙂 No photo though, because it’s getting too dark too soon.
19:00 – 20:00 Finishing this blogpost, uploading to my insta-stories.
20:00. Dinner and probably a bit more drawing.. 🙂 And tomorrow – exciting day, stay tuned on my insta-page!
That’s it for today, I hope you’ve had a lovely Sunday, and if you liked my post, check my blog in a week as well! Also as I have written in the beginning, do let me know if you’d like some tutorials, tips, anything really 🙂
