my christmas cards

it's not about santa, reindeer, and in australia definitely NOT about snow!
this is the real message of christmas.
i managed to find just a bit of time to make just a few cards for just a few people : )

work christmas cards

christmas cards i designed to send to our clients at work.
this was a stuck-in-peak-hour-traffic idea.
love the design, not so much loving hand scoring and cutting 50 of them!
though worth it for something a bit 'outside the square'.

i have a thing for great packaging

one of my fav blogs is
these are my picks.

i 'collect' images/photos/designs/packaging/brochures/ads/etc that capture/inspire/move me.
currently have a box full of printed material at home and a folder of 200+ images on my computer.
oh, and a million little memories/ideas/creative thoughts floating around in my head.

i have last years special absolut vodka bottle.
and yes i bought it cause it was in a red sequined cover.
still half full – i'm not a big spirits drinker.
now I have to buy the leather studded bottle this year cause it's even cooler!

i have a little sister and she is amazing

my little (no so little anymore!) sister elise is following in my footsteps.
she has just completed year 12 and is planning on studying graphic design full time next year.
i'm helping her compile a bit of a portfolio from her studies to date so she can look for some work experience during her summer break.
i'm so proud of you 'elsie-jones'.
i just love this piece of work.

hello summer

yay for today.
it's the first day of summer.
a whole 3 months of mostly sweltering western australian heat.
i can't wait.
i love that weather.
the only time it gets unbearable is when i drive my (rather old and crappy) non air con ford festiva on the way home from work, stuck on the freeway in 40 degrees heat with the sun beating down.
buy a new car?
yes i should.

but all that aside i'm looking forward to hot nights, beach weekends and not a jumper in sight.
