Now, working full time in a job and industry that I love I am still working on finding a balance between work and my other creative loves;blogging, self-publishing, crafting as well as making time for rest, play and fun adventures with friends and family. Here are a some snaps of a few 'things' from the past couple of weeks.
Smiles, Jenna xo

Some snaps of my desk, where I like to get creative with,mt, shape punches, stamps, polka dot stationery and zakka and being inspired by Japanese books.
Most weekends are spent packaging up zines. I just love my new polka dot stamp!
Hello Kitty Jelly Belly's from New York! Thanks Sis!
collage bag making fun
I like organising things in sweet mt tape bags
Looking forward to experimenting with mt wrap, thrilled to find this mt wrap broshure in Kinokuniya!Cute craft pictures on a stripey background :)
Peko choc lollypops make me smile and feed my chocolate addiction. Once eaten you have a cute set of swivel sticks!
All that glitters nail art
In love with spanish magazine Kireei. Language is not a barrier for me when it comes to magazines and books. The visuals and discovering wonderful new talent is enough. This is a beautifully designed magazine filled with inspiring creatives.

I love how you surround yourself with creative and colourful objects that make you happy. I started doing that recently since I finally have my own place. I like that magazine Kireei that you featured (luckily I'm bilingual so Spanish magazines are open for me to read). I know Japanese magazines and books have some of the best art, designs,ideas, and the instructions are always brilliantly illustrated but I usually bypass them as I find not being able to read it frustrating. :p
