September 2019 - Digital Download + MORE

HELLO AGAIN!

Coming at you with September’s digital downloads, which are my favorites so far because of the colors!

I don’t know when it started ( I do know that it has been a hawt minute) but I have grown very, very fond of the colors of the sunset. The deep blues, the warm oranges? I LOVE. And then I also recently learnt that there is a word for the colors of the sunset: abendrot. And while it is great that I no longer have to say “colors of the sunset” every single time I am asked about my favorite colors (which is not that often, actually), not everyone knows what abendrot is so… lol. 

Anyhoo! Here are the download links:

Haha, so how was your August? I honestly cannot remember much of what happened; the months always seem to pass by in a blur for me. I only remember bigger events and the smaller moments that lead up to them.

For August, it was the art market at SOTA for Singapore Night Festival. I really looked forward to it because it was the first art market I will be at after a long time (3-4 months, actually) - and also because it was the first time I am having a booth with a fellow maker right beside me! Yes, HELLO ANDREA lol.

Check out @littlekrafts on Instagram if you are interested in handmade polymer clay earrings! I offered some manual labor once and let me just say this: it is not easy and a lot of effort goes into a single pair of earrings.

It feels strange saying this because hahashyhaha but I tried vlogging the process of preparing for an event! Eh, it was not easy and I tried my best but I was more focused on actually doing and making instead of filming… but I got bits and pieces! I think I will also include some stuff from the upcoming NAO event that Andrea and I will again together be at. I mean, I enjoy watching people and their creative behind-the-scenes, I figured it would be fun to try filming too…? So haha, yes, here is to hoping that I will not procrastinate for too long and get to editing as soon as possible!

And yes, I know, I know! I need to update the webstore. LOL. I just added new stuff to the Words collection and so far quite a bit of them have gone to their new homes! They are all A6 prints of a single word and only a selected 5 are also made into A5 and A4 prints. There are a total of 20 words and each word is attached to a memory. So yeah, every word is special to me and I hope that whatever consolation and comfort they have given to me, you find it in them too!

AND OH! LOVER! TAYLOR SWIFT’S LOVER! As in the song, not her boyfriend, lol. I am stuck on that song, so I won’t be listening to the other songs in her new album any time soon… but I will, I promise I will. I am just very, very attached to Lover at the moment, haha!

Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?

With every guitar string scar on my hand

I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover

My heart's been borrowed and yours has been blue

All's well that ends well to end up with you

Swear to be overdramatic and true to my lover

And you'll save all your dirtiest jokes for me

And at every table, I'll save you a seat, lover

This is my favorite part of the song - but the highlighted part is my fave of all faves! Actually, the entire song is lovely and I am one of those who sobbed a little when I first heard it. Actually, I get a little teary-eyed whenever it got to this part. And, of course, I more than just sobbed when she performed Lover for the AMAs. 

So, very naturally, here are some downloads for you, HAHA.

These are all mobile wallpapers, by the way!

Darling, You’re My Lover

You’re My Lover

Lover - Color | B&W

Dreamer - Color - B&W 

I already had the Lover and Dreamer ones done a long time ago (at least two years, I believe) because I wanted to do a Lover & Dreamer series. And eh, eventually, a Alien & Human series. But then it got buried under the other things I wanted to do, lol. Maybe this is a sign for me to get back to them? I don’t know but we will see! 

Ending this off with a Merry Christmas because it is already September… aka in the Philippines, Christmas jingles are already playing everywhere, Christmas decors are up everywhere and everyone is already in a festive mood. And because Mummy has been Merry Christmas!-ing since morning. 

With so much love and until the next time,

Ellia <3
