upskill me (part two)

A while ago I had posted about doing a Photoshop/Indesign course. Here is some of the results- magenta and chartreuse green. So so very 80's and somewhat foreign looking compared to the graphics on this blog! After using Illustrator for a while, Indesign is ridiculously easy...which I suppose is a good thing!

oh, hello there

Hello, I hope this finds you well. I'm being a bit of a slacker and not posting any pictures remotely design or craft related, even though there are a few things I would love to show here...

Things have been more than a little bit busy in my world, especially as I have the rather lovely task of finding a new job... But you know, if I have any downtime my creative output may increase! It would be great to spend sometime on my own ideas... and I have a few interesting ones in the pipeline!

However, over time I have noticed that I have a very good ability to talk and talk about my ideas and then never get them of the ground for some reason or other. So for that very reason alone I won't air them on this blog until I have convinced myself that they will go ahead... I do have some envy of those more motivated people out there, but I know that it takes time, money and effort to get a great plan (or any plan) off the ground...

Anyway it is dark now and I'm going to go home and cook a curry and knit. Cold winter nights huh?? :)

new things

A few new things for my list on the side.

... daydream lily for lovely + collage + art. Based in Melbourne. Seriously so many creatives are in Melbourne. Is there something in the air?

... fortysixth at grace. Clean, lovely clothes in muted tones, and a sweet way of writing.

... The Sartorialist. Why didn't I check this one out earlier?

Anyway I have more brewing in the craft department especially with jewellery and knitting, so will do a real post at a later point...

Bye for now!
