Press - Ideal Home's, The Complete Guide to Christmas 2012

This came as quite a surprise to me, but I was looking through some Christmas Magazines this year and I came across one promoting B&Q's Christmas range. As I flicked through a little more I noticed that the Owl Christmas wrapping paper I designed for work was featured. How exciting!! Take a look at some of the pages...

Cheap As Chips

Just a quick post, I came across some more of my cracker designs just before Christmas on the Cheap As Chips website. I designed these crackers in work about March last year, so completely forgot that they decided to run them into production.

So yesterday was my 25th Birthday. I used to get a little bit of Anxiety before a birthday, as the thought of getting older troubled me! I'm getting used to it now though the older I'm getting.

The reason why I'm posting today is so that I can share my birthday present with you. My wonderful boyfriend bought this Handmade screen print for me from Bold & Noble, You can find more prints by these here.
I saw this print earlier in the year and fell in love with it, It's so clever, plus I'm not the greatest at Geography and thought It would help me a little. The fact that it is screen printed by hand just makes it twice as good!
I also wanted to share with you my cupcakes below that were made by Tabitha Martinson. How cute are these?!

 And also my workmate and fellow blogger Louise Rowley, made these for me. I love these!! Check out Louise's blog here.

Thank you to my friends and family who sent me cards, texts, emails and to Tabitha and Louise for making me some lovely (and Yummy!) cakes!


When I was in London, in November, for a weekend with my mum, we had a stroll around Notting Hill, and to my surprise we stumbled across the Biscuiteers shop. Now I didn't know they had a shop, so I was so excited when I went in to have a look. (I think the lady serving thought I was a little weird!) But I just wanted to find out more. They have now been open for about 3 months and here are some of the biscuits I bought whilst I was there...
These photos were taken into Instagram and a filter was used, I can't remember which one though, sorry!
My mum bought me this biscuit (below) for my birthday.
I've always known the Biscuiteers to be a brand rather than a cafe/shop. Here are some images of the type of things they do on cards...
