Hi, hey, hello

As this is my first blog post, I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Sarah and I'm from The Lake District in Cumbria, England. I've been reading (stalking) blogs for a few years now and hadn't really considered creating one myself until a little while ago, when I came across like-minded people with interesting posts and thought 'Hey, I could do this!' So here goes.
I'm the wee half-pint in the middle.
I grew up in a town called Barrow-in-Furness. Usually when I tell people this (mostly taxi drivers, who are always curious where I come from) I receive the rolling eyes and 'Ohhhh, yeah, Barrow-in Furness...'' response. If you've ever been to Barrow you might know why. However, it's not all bad, we have the Lakes on our doorstep where I spend many summer days in the water, woods, or one of the numerous humble café's we have.
Living in the Lakes has definitely been a huge influence on who I am and the art I create. In the past year I moved to the city of Preston where I study Illustration for a BA Honours degree. I've just finished my first year and it's been an awesome journey so far; having newfound independence is one thing but learning things I never knew about myself and what I'm capable of is another. I'd recommend university to anybody thinking about it, but I'll probably delve into that in another post.

Currently, I'm home for the summer and waiting for a new lease to start in my lovely new house in September when I'll be moving back in with my friends. Ultimately, this blog is here to open up parts of my life to the world while I have not much else to do over summer (and definitely while I get back into a uni routine), share new discoveries, thoughts, recipes and art etc. Hopefully you'll find something you enjoy here!
