France Part 1

Sorry Sorry Sorry, I didn't have time to schedule posts while I was gone because exams T_T The results are coming in next Thursday so I'm stressing out... Anyhoo, you probably know that I was in France for a month and it was great.
On the first week, I stayed at my Aunt's house in rural Normandy.
 It is a really beautiful area which was even lovelier as the sun was shining and most of the flowers were in bloom, so we spent most of our time outside, making friends with the neighbourhood cats:
 There was Mimine, my Aunt's tubby darling, the black cat with no tail and the fuzzballs next door, Pompom and Chachat.
We had a few snail races and I did lots more work for my portfolio sketchbook. My cousin spent the weekend with us and helped me to find some great work experience.

Tune in for part 2 soon-ish 'u'

90s ish

I'm in the middle of exams at the minute, so haven't had time for anything else. I still managed to snap some photos on a study break.
 That's my cat, Snowy  = v =
 Coraline (AKA Corrie) with her new faceplates

 Effervescence sporting a retro hair bow
  Lise with some kind of weird hairstyle (I don't even know) and a chunky jumper

I will check in again soon this week, but it's going to be hectic as we are leaving for Normandy on sunday (I will try to schedule posts but I can't promise anything

There was a massive thunderstorm earlier and it rained non-stop for an hour, flooding the streets and also my garden. There may be ducks in the puddles tomorrow! >u< It all inspired me to draw a kind of lightning spirit/ sylph thing...Thor's daughter, probably

10 things I need to do this summer

Hello There

Hello there! I see you have, in some amazing  and somewhat unbelievable way, stumbled upon my blog, The World According to Paisley. My name isn't actually Paisley, though. It's not that important, so I guess you can call me Evie. Or just E. I am  currently seventeen, french but living in a dreary, sleepy part of the UK and I am a little eccentric. Well, a lot eccentric. In a good way (I hope).
When I'm not hibernating because of the dreadful weather, I can be found drawing. And drawing. And did I mention drawing? I also take a lot of pictures, write poetry and stories (There is a novel in progress) and if you were to look in my handbag, you would almost always find:
  • A sketchbook - I think that is self-explanatory
  • My camera (And about thirty eight batteries to keep it alive for more than ten minutes)
  • Tissues (I have hayfever and a permanent cold. Don't ask!)
  • A Blythe or four. Depending on which bag I am using, maybe more!
 I started blogging back in 2011, so maybe someone out there already knows me ToT , but recently whilst looking at my old posts, I realised that my creativity was all burned out, so escaped from that juvenile rubbish to start afresh in a brand spanking new blog.
So enjoy reading about my life and stuff, any comments are greatly appreciated, and who knows what may happen on this quest for imagination?
