I Solemnly Swear, I Am Up To No Good

Even though I've read the Harry Potter books a million times and watched the films a million and one, I've been listening to the audio books whilst I've been working and it's been so nice to revisit the stories in a different format.

Monday Mandala

I'm starting my week feeling pretty spiritual, so I made this meditative mandala (which of course took way longer than intended to design because I'm a sucker for perfection!) The sun is shining today and this week feels like it will be a good week (hopefully), so this is just a little something to get my inner spirit inspired and to prep for the week ahead.
