There’s just something about buying a new notebook and flipping through the blank pages that excites me and makes me feel filled with potential.

The new year is a great excuse buy notebooks, pens, washi tape and all kinds of stationery and even if you’re not a stationery heaux like I am, you can make your life so much more organized with a diary and a few other bits and bobs.

There’s also a small printable freebie gift for all of you to say thanks for more than 200 views and celebrate my small blog turning one week old.

Hello and welcome to my blog!!

Usually I’m that quiet mysterious girl that mainly listens and observes but behind that introverted exterior I have so much to say when it comes to things I’m passionate about so I thought I’d express that side of me more and I hope that this will be the start of great things to come.

I want artily to be a hub of creativity and helpful source for various aspects of life so my blog posts are going to include categories like Art (arty-crafty how to’s, featured artists and behind the scene glimpses of my attempts at creating art), reviews and posts on Beauty and Body products, Recipes & quick and easy snack ideas, Printables and also all kinds of lifestyle bits and bobs.

Might have accidentally done that thing again where I got straight down to business and didn’t talk about myself but anyway just to introduce myself I’m Niela, I’m 21 years old, South African and an Art and Design student with big dreams of being an Illustrator/ Graphic Designer. I love art, fruit, flowers and plants, space, books, baking and naps.

I’m quite excited to get properly started and I really hope you’ll enjoy this creative exploration with me //

**also ps I’m gonna try to post twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays so subscribe and keep an eye out on my Twitter for more news and info (peachyniela/nielabun)

creatively yours,
