Colorful Portraits by Ana Leovy

I can’t believe it has been more than more than a month since I last posted something. So much happened in the last weeks of the year and after that horrible and exhausting Instagram hack I have been putting all my time in my pottery for a little while, which felt good. But opening my computer and writing these words feels even better<3 Happy to be back!

Oops! I got hacked.

Here’s to new beginnings!  I just set up a brand new Instagram account. New name, same art love.  You’ll find it here.

Extra note: even though I got hacked (and yes, that’s something that happens these days and yes it’s scary) It’s not my intention at all to leave you scared that something similar will happen to you. As you will read in the story below I did a very, very stupid thing that caused the hack. Also, to keep your account save, have a look at these Instagram guidelines.

It’s been eleven days since it happened. And after quite a stressful period of sending emails, doing research and stalking Instagram I think it’s time to face the music: ArtisticMoods’ Instagram account got hacked and I don’t think it’s coming back. Oops.

The Pottery Parade: October was all about Ceramics!

Note: I sell my ceramics via my Etsy shop, not on my website 🙂 I am currently sold out but will be adding new items soon. All shop updates are announced via Instagram

When I opened my blog this morning I realized that I was still enjoying the late summer sun in the garden at the time of writing my last post. I can’t believe that it’s been more than a month since I shared my last update and I’m so happy to be back! ArtisticMoods had a little blog break. I decided to do this so I could spend more time on my ceramics, which I felt needed more of my devotion after a year in which so much has happened. I was a bit nervous about the break, but I must say: I’m glad that I did it.

Before I start sharing art I love again, here’s an update on what I’ve been doing in my blog break:

Socks with Character by ChattyFeet

A wile ago I stumbled upon a quirky pair of Yayoi Toesamas that made me giggle pretty hard. Then I discovered Virginia Wool, Frida Calus, Sole-Adore Dali and other wonderfully designed socks by the England based brand called ChattyFeet. Artists, scientists, divas and many more characters that will keep your feet warm and lift you up every time you put your eyes down. I’ve got my eye on the artist sock set!
