Christmas card designs

Here are some christmas cards from my good friend at wellhellothere. The card on the right is by Charlotte Little who you can check out at

I think Kristi (wellhellothere) is really good at illustrating cute characters like this little polar bear in the scarf :) She has others such as reindeers which you can buy on her etsy store at

Now for my cards! :D

Now lets put them into more context...

Merry Christmas to you all and Happy New Year! 

Pantone Gift Bags

While christmas shopping for some of my friends I found these adorable Pantone gift bags. The people I had in mind to get them for are designers so I knew they would appreciate something like this. They were from Urban Outfitters who also had some new bags for christmas which I assume was to compliment their window displays.

There are also Pantone baubles if you are trying to collect all things Pantone orientated.

Thank you cards

Here is a little collection of thank you cards I had hand-printed to send to my family. There are various  versions as I changed colours to experiment a bit and added fine liner etc.

And the stencil used to make them :)

New hairstyle

Went to the hairdressers today and didn't plan on doing anything new with my hair but as I was going through the magazines I saw a picture of Jennifer Lawrence with her hair up and a full fringe. I've gotten into the habit of wearing my hair up recently so I thought it would add something to the usual ponytail up-do. I've had a fringe put in before and ended up preferring a side fringe (if thats what its called?) so I thought I'd give it another chance and since I've got a new hairdresser since then. Safe to say I am quite a fan of it and wanted to share it on this blog.

Santas on Motorcycles

Motorcyclists were getting into the festive spirit in Bristol this weekend. I was actually on the way to work on the bus but luckily I was sat at the front on the top deck so I was able to get some photos of them as they passed by through the traffic. I was on my own so I think the other people on the bus thought I was a bit crazy laughing at myself taking photos of them and waving. There was so many of them and it was hard not to get excited from seeing all the decorations they had and even whole christmas trees on the bigger ones. Ahh... the perks of working in the city centre.

Check out the beard on that one!

Quad bike Santa!
