Think I have finally finished tweaking (tweeting?) with these little birdies, this has been a project I have been working on for a while so I thought I would share some of the collection with you. I may come back to them as they definitely have the potential for some birthday/christmas card designs.

Wandering around Etsy this evening I came across some lovely prints from the shop of curious doodles. I love the graphic patterns and coral/turquoise colour palette. In particular these four art prints on birch wood. I am also loving these quirky card designs using text shortcuts and the cards with phrases stitched into them.
Check out her blog as well, also a treasure chest of inspirational finds and she has just set off on a 6 month journey around the world! I'm sure it will mean some fab posts from all those exotic places, I'm definitely going to be checking in regularly! For now I am off to browse holiday websites as I'm very jealous and in desperate need of a holiday...
Spent the weekend at work which is always a joy, so on my lunch break I started a list of things that I needed to get done to kick start this 'new beginning'. Some things are relatively small like organising my workspace, others a little more advanced such as starting a website or getting an agent...so no pressure! I have some leftover holiday to take in the coming weeks so hopefully I can tackle some of the smaller tasks, designing birthday cards for friends and making some cushions for my new desk chair, which I will hopefully be able to share with you if I can master this blog technology lark!

Right...its the beginning of a new year (well almost it is still January!) and the beginning of a new part of my life. I have decided to try and get my design work out there in the world and hopefully make some sort of living from it. I want to think of this space as a never-ending scrapbook that I can fill with design ideas, images, photographs and maybe the odd recipe! I am rather partial to a slice of cake...or two! And tea, lots of tea.
