Wedding Invite

~

A wedding invite I did not too long ago 🙂 The couple are having a big move to the other side of the World, hence their boarding pass/aeroplane ticket idea.

Things have been quiet over here, lots of working and settling into the house… And then we got BIG news a month or so ago, we’re expecting a baby at the end of the year. Scary much?

Anniversary Present

~

Eventually managed to get my sister in laws anniversary present finished and printed. Only a few months late… Anyway, here it is. Big news: We’re buying a house. Hello stress.

Paris

We also went to Paris at the end of last year. I can’t believe we’re now in March. Ridiculous. Here’s some nice photos from the trip.

New Stuff…

~

My bestest friend asked me to make her a special card for her mama for mothers day, so I did. She wanted her, her dog, and her cat all on the card. Basically she came up the with the idea and I made it happen. We make a good team. And here it is…

Christening…

~

Another Christening invite. This one is for Laura and Ian, and their two beautiful babies, Molly Rose & Evie Mae.
(Well, one not so babylike anymore, more like beautiful little girl!) Jamie is going to be their godfather, which is so cute! Apparently this makes me godmother-in-law-to-be. Lovely!

Go see Henrys blog, he puts all these class gigs on that I occasionally do the posters for!

This Year…

~

So far this year I have mostly been working on my boyfriends lovely sisters wedding invites (along with a poster or two). This is the map/directions I made for the guests… The final thing I will post when it’s all done and printed up!

2011

~

Happy New Year! I have had a splendiferous festive period, and I’m quite sad to see 2010 go. Despite the huge bad news we had in the summer, it’s actually been one of my favourite years to date. Lots of nice mini holidays, day trips, weddings, celebrations, and quiet times.

~

So anyway, back to reality.

~

~

~

Winter!

~

~

Christmas is definitely upon us! Nice festive feeling brought to me by the absolute insane amount of snow over the past week. Still haven’t found the time to do any sort of ‘christmassy’ work, but if I want to send homemade cards again this Christmas I suppose I’d better get started! Mama McBean (now Abbey, I keep forgetting she got married!) is not very well this week, could just be that she’s getting run down because of the weather, but the fact that chemo kicks the asses of all the good cells as well doesn’t help! Anyway, I didn’t come here to be depressing, I just came to share some nice winter photos! Goodnight! x

Love the Hipstamatic app. Must buy for all you iPhoners. That is all.

hit or miss…

Flyer design… I like these colours.

Today I gotta take my cat to get his yearly jabs. He is not gonna like me later when I stuff him in his carry basket and let someone poke him with needles. Aww. In other news, I shaved my mams head last week as her hair started coming out. She actually really suits being bald, which is weird! She got married on Saturday and it all went really well and she had a lovely day 🙂 She has her second course of chemo tomorrow so here’s hoping she stays as well as she has been after her first!

So… HELLO. I have so much work on this week! So just a quickie to post this poster I did last night for an upcoming gig in Middlesbrough. Bonsoir.

JaX Poster..

~

Saturday Social

~

Poster I did for Uncle Alberts. I love the colours in this. I’m turning into such a stereotypical girl, all of my favourite colours are now purples and pinks. Pretty!

~

boring, boring logo design

~

~

I am actually really missing proper painting. I think I’m gonna start a Jenny Saville-esque portrait when I get some new brushes. Sometimes I can’t be bothered with design, I do love it loads but it just seems pointless when you don’t get any credit or acknowledgement for anything you do. It is far too hard to be a designer who doesn’t want to leave their family and up sticks to move to some big city where the people are rude and ignorant and everything is too expensive! Rant over.

~

i did this for the evening gazette…

~

^^ Title says it all. Mashed this together very quickly, an advert for Uncle Alberts in Middlesbrough. TATA.

~

~

new!

~

Long time! Haven’t blogged in months. Apologies! I can’t think of anything exciting or interesting to say, unlike Kim Tillyer! She is always at it. Anyways, must get off and feed myself before my stomach starts telling me off.

finally!

Internet is finally working properly, been mobile browsing for weeks except for the occasional time when Virgin actually does what we pay them to do! Absolute rubbish. Shouldn’t totally blame Mr Branson though as both routers we have are useless aswell. Whoops. Anyway, now I can get my act together and do some work. Had a fun time in Fenwicks gift section the other day, you know you aren’t a real girl when you’d rather spend half hour looking at cards and stationary than poring over shoes and make up (that you can’t afford anyway)! My Christmas work is up for sale now on James Ellis‘ website :] I got my first sales analysis the other day and I sold 86 cards in one month! Probably not a lot in the big grand scheme of things but I am still chuffed to bits and it’s only August! Anyway I’m about to start drawing and painting up some cakes ready for some new designs. Toodle pip.
