Yum-Munch Cakes

My cousin is a talented cake crafter and is just setting up her own business and asked me to design a logo for Yum-Munch Cakes.

This is the final design she chose.

Once again it reminded how I love the process of creating, the ideas, the challenge of battling with a design as it just won't work. If only I had time in my day to turn my hobby into a money making scheme...

Welcome to the home of the future

My brother has just moved to New York and this is a their moving house card.

Why robots? Because it is the home of the future, and also there is a too complicated back story why we are called Holbots.

Holbots, at your service

Valentine's penguins

Valentines purple penguin

We had 20 minutes spare this morning before school, so we made a couple of Valentine's penguins.

Penguins are just the perfect creature for Valentines, it's cold, it's winter, they're cute and in our house they are purple.

I'm struggling to draw, my brain power has been reassigned and the connection between my hand and brain isn't working. But rather than worry about it, I've decided to channel my creative urges in different directions.

I've wanted a bag to stuff all the baby tights, it makes them easier to find. I quickly sewed together a spare piece of fabric to make a bag, job done. But creativity snuck in and that evening (while the baby was asleep) Tilda and I had a crafting hour, both creating owls collages.

I think Tilda and I need to establish regular creating/crafting time, as it was great to spend time chatting, making and bouncing ideas off each other, to give her some time and attention in our busy lives.
