twit twoo

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

Friday To Do

Now that I'm offfficially on my Christmas Holidays the countdown can begin!

We're having 15 people to dinner on Christmas day; five of my uncles, two aunts, my granny and cousins plus my brothers, myself and my mum. There's never been this many people in our house for Christmas so it's going to be crazy!

(So basically this week I'm going to be my mum's PA.)

I also have yet to finish Richard's present or get one for either of my parents. Eep. 

Then I get to wrap them all and put them under the-so far nonexistant- Christmas tree! Woo! 

Oh and then there's Christmas Eve drinks and giving my best friend her present and making chocolates for all my family and labels for our chutney jars and setting the table and cleaning the house and getting a little freelancer done before the 20th and hanging the stockings and all of that other LOVELY stuff. 

Yum. Can't. Wait. Love.

P.S I got my bike printed onto gift tags and sold them at the fair, they sold like crazy and I only wished I'd printed more. There's always next year*

craft fair

Around a month ago I entered a competition to win a stall at the National Crafts & Design Fair. These stalls cost a bomb normally but The Irish Times was running a competition for students to put forward proposals in the hopes of winning a stall. A couple of weeks ago I found out that I won!

Since then things have been insane... there is SO much to do. I can't even think about it! I hope it all goes well and it will be a lovely and great. In the meantime I'll try keep updated here as to how things are going.
