Haven't had a chance to blog all week, college has been busy and so has freelance work AND it's Valentine's day soon so there's cards to be made and printed and packed off for selling. It's all good though so I've got nothing to complain about really!

Last week in college we started learning Illustrator, which is equally frustrating and exciting. My poor eyes have never been so sore... I need  to stop staring at the computer screen and remember to blink every once in a while! Above is my first Illustrator illustration and I've got to admit I quite like it :)

Happy Weekend Lovely People x

(a little sneaky preview of a freelance job I'm working on...shhhh)

I haven't been here much this week, and I won't be for the next while either because, well, you know, it's Christmas! And we're having 15 people to dinner! And there's so much to do!

Merry Christmas,

love x

I made some little owls.

I'm going to open an Etsy shop soon I think... to sell the cards
Not the owls. God no, who'd want to buy my sewing skills? I'm no Maria
But maybe if somebody bought lots of cards they could get an owl too? 
Maybe. I don't know. That depends if anyone actually wants to buy them. Ha!

p.s how cool is the mini bicycle? we bought it for my dad years ago, I love it!


I did my first freelance job a couple of weeks ago. It was both exciting and nerve-wracking, which only intensified as I knew the client well and it's always difficult to discuss money, especially if you know them. But I just got over it and kept reminding myself that I was doing a job and that I had to be professional. geeeez.
The job was to design an invitation to the retirement party of an English teacher... and I have to admit the resulting piece has been my favourite owly design so far. (on a side note I can do more than owls... serrrriously I promise!)

I've included some pictures of the finished design and notebook pages of the 'process', if you'd like to see.

sorry about all the blurry bits but ya know... internet freaks and all that.
p.s the quote is from Shakespeare, in case ya didn't know!
