Scrumptious Pantones

These are too beautiful NOT to share. Emilie from Griottes created these delicious pantone tarts, which I am truly jealous about! They look amazing and the idea is simply stunning! I want to look at them forever, but also nom them right up!

You're my type

I'm doing a bit of typography research for a wedding project that I am working on and have found some lovelies on MyFonts - I must admit, I do want them ALL! I am a bit girly when it comes to typography, I am a sucker for swirls.

Will you be my...

I did these cards for my friend Jess, who was looking for something a little more than just a question to be asked.

So, what's been going down?

Since January my brain seems to have gone on some sort of strike and has turned into a lazy teenager. Bad brain, BAD! So I have finally 'ground' it and told it to stay in and do it's 'homework'...

I have not been too busy this year but have done a few little bits and bobs (which I will pop up shortly) but over the next few months I am going to be rather stacked with work and life! I am terrible at To Do lists (I have lots of lovely notebooks, and boy do I mean lots, with plenty of To Do lists that get forgotten about as soon as my Magpie traits kick in and I get a new shiny notebook)

so hopefully this post will give me a little kick up the butt and be used and updated!

First on my list, which I am extremely excited about, is getting involved in the Dragons Custom Toy Show, this will be my second custom, my first is still WIP - so it's nice to be doing something for a show rather than just a personal project.

Next, which I am rather far behind on, is creating the Robot Quilt for my nephew Mika. I will be using the patter from Boo Davis - Dare to be Square. The problem that I have though since moving from up North is trying to find good quality but not ridiculously over-priced fabrics. I am going to have a hunt in Brixton though over the next few weeks.

So those two are my immediate plans of attack. Starting small, but getting them done. Best policy? I hope so! We also have our America trip to plan and trips to Wales EEEP!

Back to blogging :)

Hello internet worldz!

So yeah, I haven't blogged or anything for ages.... I'm not going to make up any excuses, I basically turned into a lazy stroppy teenager :)

So today I thought, get your act together woman and get cracking! It feels nice to be back and I found an app that finally works woo!

I haven't been up to much, just freelancing and eating minced pies. Went fir an adventure on the London Barclays Bikes which was amazing (would definitely recommend) and explored a bit of London.

I leave for South Africa with Sam next week and I am SOOO excited for the break! I am learning to use my Mini Diana, so expect some armature wibbly wobbly pics soon :)
