Happy Holidays! | December 23, 2011

I'd like to wish everyone a very happy festive season!! Eat, drink, be merry and all that!

Thank- you all so much for reading my little blog. It's been a wonderful year. Your support means the world to me and is greatly appreciated! :)

I will be taking a break and will return with updates on January 9. Looking forward to getting stuck into some new and exciting projects in the new year!

Anyway, I might just wander off now and sleep for a week.

Happy Lab | December 19, 2011

I spotted Happy Lab recently at Chadstone Shopping Center and was immediately enticed by the cute packaging and creative store design. Beakers and test tubes filled with colourful candy and chocolate line the walls whilst staff parade around in lab coats. If the sugar doesn't make you happy, the colours surely will. Don't you just love great packaging?

Free Holiday Knit Gift Tags | December 15, 2011

So, what has everyone got planned for the holiday break? On the very top of my list are activities that involve minimal thinking and couch appreciation.

We're also looking forward to Sukie's very first trip to the beach and enjoying other dog-friendly excursions. I'm certain there will also be much merriment over various BBQs with friends, regular meltings in the summer heat and excessive chocolate consumption. (I've come to the conclusion that it is impossible to avoid sugar overload during the holidays so this year I'm not even going to try.)

But before I get ahead of myself, there is still much to be done. As usual, I have left everything to the absolute last minute. Next week will be a flurry of gift making, packaging and shopping- oh my.

Anyway, please enjoy these gift tags that I've designed for you- Hope they help you with your last minute gift projects.

"Flanno" cards by The Hungry Workshop | December 01, 2011

Currently smiling over these letterpress "Flanno" cards by The Hungry Workshop. (They do some very nice work). You can buy them individually or in a set of four in their online shop.

Oh, and for something more strictly holiday related you might also like their Here's Cheers card.
