Bye Bye 2014!

A new year is almost here and that brings 2014 to a close. This year was a strange one. I lost two animals (Tigger & Flapper), started free hosting again, created two new blogs (Cute Magic & Why Blue) and tried not to push myself mentally.

In 2015 I would like to:

  • Make a plan for the future
  • Seek support for mental health
  • Finish children’s book
  • Relearn website design
  • Make a theme for my blog
  • Exercise & eat better
  • Stop drinking as much soda/pop
  • Stop smoking as much

Dad and I will be playing our annual game of cricket in the afternoon (when it cools down). We have been playing this for so long (16+ years I think). Today I was thinking it will be really sad when one day he is not here to play it with me. I am lucky that he is, especially after he had cancer twice.

I hope 2015 will be a great year for everyone. :)

My christmas designs, printed :D

IMG_4699

My Christmas designs arrived and I am really happy with the result. I decided on the four final designs from all of your help, and what I liked too. Plus, I decided to have a notepad and stickers made. Even though the notepad is not really ‘Christmas related‘ it has to make an appearance. I don’t intend to sell them, just to share cards with friends/family and maybe include some stickers and a note with them. :D If you are interested in exchanging cards, let me know.

It might be a bit hard to tell, but the cards are also glossy and feel nice to touch.

Yay, giraffe Santa!

All the stars! :D

This photo kind of went a bit noodley and made the quality look eh. It looks better in ‘real life’. xD

Your friendly Christmas tree.

A fun little notepad I designed. I made the contrast of the design lighter, so you could see what you are writing haha. I also realised it’s a bit crooked. But, cute giraffe!

Loveable star stickers. I really love this and think they are my favourite thing (I do have a sticker collecting problem).

I am happy with how all of the designs turned out and can’t wait to post them off. I had all of my cards/designs printed with Vistaprint, price was good and they shipped really really fast! Might be a cool option for anyone in Australia looking to have designs printed. The only bummer is, when you upload a design, you can’t see a quality preview, they make you pay for that. But if you upload high quality files (for my designs I usually use the .ai, illustrator file) there is no problem.
