New Penguin Design!

I present to you my newest design that is now available on the Designs by Charli website! His name is Ash (after the little stuffed penguin that my boyfriend gave to me when we first got together) and I'd love to know what you think :)

I know this is a bit strange because usually I'm just posting a card or telling you about a new design or entering challenges but I thought that it would be a good idea to tell you all a little bit more about me!

I am a great fan of Youtube vloggers and I've noticed that I always seem to connect with them more if they have maybe an introductory 'this-is-me' type video and I figure that the same applies to Blogland. I think that it is better when you come across a blog that you can connect with or you at least know a little bit about the author so here goes! (Be warned, I will probably end up rambling as I am very bad at stopping typing once I start and if you have any further questions just let me know!

  • I'm called Charlotte but I much prefer Charli....I used to hate that nickname when I was younger but in school, it just happened that people decided to call me either Lottie or Charli and since I don't think Lottie suits me at all, the name Charli kind of grew on me I guess :)
  • I am 19 years old and am currently a student studying A levels in Fine Art, Photography and Media Studies. I already have one in English Literature and I got a B! So I think that's good :)
  • I have a boyfriend called Adam who's in uni at the moment and I've been with him for just over 13 months.....and I am currently living with his family while he's away!
  • I enjoy most types of art but painting is definitely my favourite as I take huge amounts of inspiration from van Gogh and everything I paint tends to be in that very tactile layered style. I also love cardmaking of course, and a newly found hobby is sewing! I used to hate it but after having to make about 50 fabric flowers for my Art final piece this year I have become more confident and even though my hands got stabbed a few times with my runaway needles, I really liked it!
  • I've never really traveled anywhere but I have been on holiday once! I went to Amsterdam with my mum 2 years ago and we went to all the art galleries and the archaeological museum and the zoo and it was amazing! I've got to say, I don't usually agree with zoos just because of the way the animals are kept but in Amsterdam they all seemed a little bit less caged in and happier and there were penguins! :D
  • Got to say......I love penguins.....always have.....and I have no idea why but I just think they're intriguing animals and Adam bought me a small cuddly one with big eyes when we first got together and I just love them :)

I am really bad about writing about myself.....and to be honest I think I'm rambling too much so I'll stop but I hope that you found this kinda interesting and I hope you'll ask any questions or anything or just comment.....this may have been a stupid idea on my part but I do like to ramble sometimes and I think I shall probably start writing more on here in the future along with designs and cards.

So yeah, thanks for reading my ramblings and thanks for following/supporting me in my blogging adventures! :)
