Long time no see

I'm so rubbish at updating my blog I just don't have the time anymore! I think one of my ny resolutions was to keep updating it, even just with inspirations and things I love...but since it's June now and I still haven't updated, its part of my Half-year resolutions. Which are a great idea since no one ever sticks to them after the first week of January.

My job is going amazingly. I'm getting to do a wide range of things and learning lots of new stuff at the same time. Since moving to Cardiff I have so much more time to do my own thing and a lot more energy. I can't believe I used to do a 100 mile a day commute! I also enjoy living in Cardiff a lot more than Swansea, there's more places to go, better shops, better restaurants and I feel a lot more in the loop.

Also, I went on my 2 week placement (November) to Tigerprint which was the most fun ever! I'd love to put my work up here and show what kind of things I was working on but that's not allowed :( Well I was doing Christmas 2012 (hoow exciting) and learning all kinds of fun new things like flitter, glitter, foiling, spot varnishing etc etc I loved it. Such a fun place to work, everyone is so nice, it's like working in a toy factory or something.

I'm going to try my hardest to keep at it with the blogging thing. I've been put in charge of the blog at work and I'm honestly really enjoying doing it so I think its all a matter of getting into it.

Hopefully I'll have some more work to put up on here soon.

Final year exhibiton

***These photos are from last year. I graduated in 2011 but Blogger seems to have messed up my posts so having to post this again!***

So its been a while...

Here are some photos of my final year exhibition. I chose several of my favourite pieces of work to mount, and 'went to town' on the display. After all I only get to do this once and I really wanted to create a 'feel' to the booth I was given that reflected me and my style. My lovely lovely mother baked me 50+ cupcakes all beautifully decorated with pink and white icing and silverballs and heart (really girly haha) and I put them on display along with my cakestand and 3d mockups of my work. Really pleased with the entire display :)

Also my business cards freshly printed from Moo - I got a series of designs because I get bored easily, so used my favourite subject (food!) for the image part.
