I've had a lot of posting ideas this January. I think it has to do with the fact that I was away from blogging for so long. Perhaps I was just eager to make up for the lost time. I didn't keep to a certain theme this January. I wrote a lot. I shared many paintings and illustrations. In addition, I also shared my outfits and even DIY projects. So, there was a bit of everything this month. However, that also means that I get to do a really fun January recap, so here we go.
ART & ILLUSTRATIONS
I shared tons of my illustrations, drawings and painting this January and if all goes well you can expect the same in February. I already have some art on hold to share. I'm also planning to write more about my experience with art courses. Perhaps it is best to write one detailed post about it.
I only included one reading recommendation this month, but it is only because I have another blog reserved for book reviews. I did read a lot of books this month ( I have to make a final countdown tonight). I can't resist picking up a few to recommend. So, here are my 11 reading recommendations of the month:
1. Judita by Miro Gavran
2. A Painted House by John Grisham
3. Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino
4. The Nose by Nikolai Gogol
5. Darkside Earther by Bradley Horner
6. Frida by Slavenka Drakulich
7. Absalom, Absalom by William Faulkner
8. Lagoon by Joseph Conrad
9. Typhoon by Jospeh Conrad
10. Kako smo lomili noge by Miro Gavran
11. Letter to His Father by Franz Kafka
PERSONAL POSTS (WRITING)
This month I also shared one very personal post where I wrote about living and dealing with a chronic illness. It was a very difficult post to write, but I'm happy I wrote it.
This January I shared two DIY posts. Both are quite easy and are all about recycling. The first one is about making a white vase, the second one about turning a mason jar into a plaint container. I'd like to share more posts like this, where I teach you how to use acrylic paints for home projects. Acrylic paints are easy to use and they can be a lot of fun.
I shared a few outfit posts this month. It was fun getting back to those. For a while, I gave up on outfit posts because my blog became more art related, but I might get back to them. I'm not sure, we'll see what next month brings. I think that I prefer my blog posts to be varied, it might be the best blogging scenario for me.
As always, thank you for reading!
