A little bit of typography

I am trying a new thing... some new art... in the way of inspirational / inspired sayings, quotes etc. This one is in my black hard cover sketch book. Every time I see it I think, yes yes that's right, that's what I should be doing. Focus! and enjoy every day. x

Inspired by... Orla Kiely

What lovely graphics Orla Kiely creates, and now there's a fab range in Target (USA). Pity it's not world wide, we'd love it too.

But you can see the whole range here at Orla Kiely for Target.

Or else have a look at the Orla Kiely web site.

More pretty, pretty things.

New look ... feeling good.

Finally we (being me & Nick) have updated our web site and online shop. Have been meaning to do it for an age, but life gets in the way of design sometimes. I did hear a good quote the other day, and it's probably by someone really famous, and I'm just unaware and it is:
"Get out of your own way". Some good advice I think!!
If you want to check out our newness go here.

love xx

What a Hoot!

I am in a Treasury...
A cute one all about owls. See my little owl and pussycat in there. Nice.
Much thanks to Kimberly!

Paul Rand .... design hero

Print by Paul Rand

So there are people out there that inspire many, and I think Paul Rand is one of those people. A true graphic designer, whose work is so stunning, so bold and so memorable. And he designed the Apple logo!! Gotta love that. Two of my favourite things... Paul Rand and my Mac.

To to market to market...

Hello. So I have just been away at the beach for a week with the family. Lovely weather, beautiful beach. Now back to reality. And exciting stuff too. I am going to be attending my first market... as a stall holder! Yes, I am taking the plunge and doing it. The market, Mathilda's Market, is in Melbourne, and will have heaps of unique and beautiful products for children, so if you around on Sunday March 15, please come and say hello.
