a quick post..

Hi everyone,
just a quick post to show what I have been upto lately.
This is a flyer I designed for my parents bed & breakfast.
We had it professionally photographed so it came up well.

New Fabrics for VixenLily Heat Pillows

I have been sourcing some new fabrics for my heat pillows. I am trying to mix it up a bit with some different themes and even get some male designs in there. This is what I have found so far!!


A bundle of mischief...

I am very jealous that my sister bought the cutest little puppy, my personal favorite, a miniature daschund. His name is Dexter and he gets up to lot's of mischief but it's hard not to love him.


Bella Beads

I love coming up with new card ranges at work. This is a range I designed a few months ago called Bella Beads. I tried new techniques in photoshop to create a painted/water colour effect which has come up well.
Hope you like them :)


Europe Trip

Sorry guys, it's been a while again since my last post, I promise they will become more regular again, now that I'm settling back in. But I wanted to share some exciting stuff I have done over the past few weeks.

I have been lucky enough to travel with work to some major gift fairs held in Frankfurt, Germany. We visited Christmas World and Paper World, has anyone heard of them or been? Well, can I just say, Amazing!! You will find so much inspiration here, it's really unbelievable how massive these fairs are. Take a look at some of the things I saw...

Following my work trip I spent a week in Zurich, Switzerland.
Apart from the beautiful old town and cute country village of Appenzell, my favourite stop was definitlely Mt Zermatt. For those of you know arn't aware (I wasn't) this is where the one and only Matterhorn can be found. The views are really beautiful here and we had a great scenic train ride on the Glacier Express. If anyone is thinking of taking a trip to Switzerland I would defintly reccomend doing this.


Bertha's Bed & Breakfast

My parents have spent alot of their time restoring this old derelict miner's cottage on our property here in Warrandyte. When researching they found that a lady, Bertha Brown used to live there hence they will be naming it "Bertha's Bed & Breakfast". The cottage was featured in the Herald Sun a few years back (black and white photo) and as you can see alot of work has been put in to restore it to it's original form (as close as) and I'm just happy that this once loved cottage will now be used and loved once again.


Welcome Back!

Well the Christmas period has taken it's toll. I have been very slack and haven't spent any time doing my much loved hobby, Blogging.
But today it ends!! Fresh for 2011, I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and happy new year!

Over my christmas break I spent a week at the beach with my family.
It was really great to all get together. Amazing weather, good company and a few too many glasses of wine was what the doctor ordered.

Of course when I was away I had to check out the local stores for any goodies. I came across some very cute home-ware stores and made a small purchase.

Along with a scarf for my mum and a pizza cutter (chosen by my boyfriend) I bought these two adorable owls. They have taken haven
on my bathroom counter for the moment, I love them :)
