Chocolate Goodness

I think textile designers are amazing. It's one of those things I wish I had studied or explored when I was younger and had more time. There is something about the tactile nature of this form of design that just makes my heart go a flutter!
I found some very designy (not sure if this is a word) and gorgeous things at the chocolate creative shop and on their blog!

oh ahh dutch design....

mmm Dutch design, especially graphic design.... Check out these fabulous posters.... this was put togther a while ago... but still great to re'live such a classic design era

Baby Birth Notice Art Print Giveaway!

A very special hello to all the new babies out there and their fabulous Mums and Dads! To celebrate the joy a new baby brings I am doing a GIVEAWAY!!! - baby birth notice posters...... to 2 babies born in 2008. All you have to do is leave a comment with birth details you'd like on your A4 poster and then I will draw 2 winners, in early Feb. If you didn't have a baby in 2008 maybe you know someone who did that would love a little momento! I will do another post later in the month as a reminder.

Hello 2009

Boy, where did Christmas go? Can you believe it' s already 2009?
So, a new year and lots to do. I already have lists upon lists. You know how by the end of one year you are just putting stuff off until the new year? And then all of a sudden the new year hits and you have no excuses.... well yes that's where I am.
So what to do this year?
Business wise - lots.
Here are 3 things I am planning for this little business called Printspace. (as a start to getting this thing happening!)
1. Create more art.... make the time .... enjoy it
2. Set up a proper Flickr thingy, I have one but it's a lazy persons version. I need a new shiny, version. This will force me to improve my photography. Something I am busting to do since getting our spunky digital camera a year ago..... I am embaressed to say that I studied Photography for 2 years..... many years ago, but still.
3. Start my career as a market stall holder.... yes, yes, the year of taking stuff seriously. We are doing our first market in March, it's called Mathildas Market, and it will be held in Melbourne. More on that later!!!

I hope everyone out there had a great Christmas and New Year. Keep an eye out for my little giveaway coming up and also a super January sale.......ohhh ahhh....
