I'm doing a starting up sale on my Etsy store, so everything is pretty cheap right now! Please take a look if you like fun, quirky art! All prints are on matte card so you can frame them, put them into folders, or keep them as they are :)

Those of you who have been following me will know I've had quite a lot of life issues recently and am going to be losing my job and flat, so any kind of support (whether it's interest in my etsy store, or liking and sharing my facebook page) is really appreciated! Oh, here's the facebook page:

ChestnutSlippers โ€บ @NyishaHv That means a lot thank you! I'm doing a 'starting up' sale on my Etsy so everything is cheaper. I'm not making much due to the printing costs but figured it would get the ball rolling :P

Due to the owner of our business selling it on, I am having to leave my lovely little flat in order to pursue work in another town. I am absolutely gutted to be leaving as it really is such a nice place, but I have no stable job and will not be able to afford the rent. In order to get out of the contract, I need to find a new tenant who is reliable, sensible and tidy. I know this is a long shot, but if anybody knows someone looking for a lovely little flat with a kitchenette in Stafford England, for just ยฃ500 per month (which includes all bills and internet) could you drop me a message please, or email mjjones2011@hotmail.co.uk x

Thank you.

Stressiversary Rant and Art.

This time last year, I was unaware that I had around 1 month left at my current job, through no fault of my own. And that this would leave me suddenly unemployed, broke, and in a struggle to afford my next months rent. This caused me a lot of stress, but within 3 days of being unemployed. I got a new job and everything worked out alright.

This year, I have been made fully aware that my place of work will be closing. My landlord is aware that I will need to end my contract early, and I have next months rent in hand, just no more.

I didn't really make this article to ask for help, honestly, I've basically just made it to rant. But if anybody knows of anyone in Stafford, England, who is looking for a really nice little studio flat, ยฃ495 p/m all bills included, please drop me a message.

In other news I'm going to start selling my digital artwork soon, in order to try and get another months rent to be as safe as possible. I will post my work here, to get opinions and ideas. If you would like to buy any of my work, I can sell the files fairly cheap and send them online for you to print.

I currently do not have a printer, so I have to pay for printing which costs a minimum of ยฃ10 each time, but if you are unable to print them and you'd really like a physical printed design posted to you I am more than happy to arrange this, but please understand why it is priced higher than the regular files.

I will also be taking personal commissions, which will be ยฃ25 for the design sent as a file, ยฃ35 for a physical print sent through the post which includes UK postage.

Thank you for reading this, here's a quick sample of my work.

So despite bein super proud of myself for over-coming the bus phobia I've had for about 20 years, caught my 3rd bus in a row yesterday and it ended with the driver yelling at me... still can't work out if what I did was wrong or not. Any opionions would be great.

I was waiting nervously at a bus stop and another bus pulled up. It took up all the space so when my bus arrived it was on the other side of the road behind it.

I assumed the first bus would drive away and then mine would pull into the stop near the pavement, but my bus just stopped on the far side of the road for 30 seconds, then drove off.

I ran after it and the driver stopped and let me jump on. He started shouting at me saying "Didnt you see me stop? Why didnt you come over? You should have been paying attention! There was a bus in the way so I couldnt get to the stop!"

He was really angry which upset me but I didnt know you could get on a bus if it wasnt at the bus stop. I thought he was going to come to it once the other bus had moved, and he didnt signal to me or anything.

Still guess I'll know for future, but are they really allowed to not go to their stops and passangers really allowed to walk across the road to get in? It's really confused me.

Sort of fail story, for the past 2 weeks I've been eating very healthily, exercising a ton, and feeling much better in myself. However, foodwise I have really started slacking. It began with a cheesecake last weekend, THEN I had two pints with a 600cal pub meal, THEN two pints last night, and when I drink, I am always super hungry afterwards. As a result I ate 2 veggie samosas with rice. I've had a boiled egg this morning and veggie sasuages, and still feel hungry (defo because of the alcohol but I can't not drink it!)

I'm finding this very difficult all of a sudden, any tips would be welcome? :(

bee โ€บ Unfortunately I'm not sure there's a way around it. alcohol activates the brain cells that promote hunger. I think try to eat before you leave for the pub. That sometimes works

ze2000 โ€บ Starving is not the solution. Instead of samosas (for example) eat grilled peppers. You can eat 2 full bags of them and still have less calories and zero fat.

ChestnutSlippers โ€บ @ze2000 Thank you, that is a very good idea!!! I will stock up on some peppers or maybe even celery.

Everyone attempts, at some point in life, to improve themselves in one way or another. It could be in the form of dieting, exercising, educating themselves, or even learning a new skill. However, a huge error that most people make, is trying to do too much at once. This usually ends up with one r... Read more

A very short video I have made, about something that happens to every freelance artist or designer on a regular basis. The worst part is, more often than not, it is people who know you personally who do this. Strangers tend to be far more respectful, which is really sad when you think about it.

Why You Should NOT ask Artists for Free Art.

A quick video about one of the hardest things about being a freelance artist. I hope it will shed some light onto the situation that artists have to face on ...

I created a short video today. I'm going to try and do one per week, about this length. Would really love it if you would check them out. And like and subscribe if you also have a Youtube channel. They're mostly going to be stories about weird stuff that happens in my life, but I'll happily consider requests for other things :)
