There are two important numbers regarding living area that you need to know when you live in Sweden.

I did it! I finished #inktober!
Four weeks ago I announced that I was participating in #inktober. The challenge was to create and share an ink drawing a day for the month of October. My chosen topic was Steampunk Insects.
Just between you and me, I’ll admit that I didn’t draw everyday. Shhh! I did, however, have a few catch up days so I ended up with 31 drawings – a full set.
So what did I learn? Mostly that there are some scary looking creepy crawlies out there! But also that no matter how much of a beginner I felt, it was worth sharing my efforts. The flood of enthusiastic responses was really encouraging both from my family and friends, and from some amazingly talented Instagram-ers and fellow #Inktober participants.
#inktober is definitely going in my diary for next October!
Just a quick tip today because I have a visitor coming to stay in a couple of hours and the house is covered in puppy preparations. There is work to be done!
