I've just been on a fellow blogger's page and she had this funny little link:

Try it out if you are bored. It's quite funny!

Wokon Packaging

Yesterday I was introduced to a brilliant healthy fast food restaurant in Leeds. I was cheeky and asked if I could have a clean box to bring home. This is the second time I've seen this type of packaging used within the space of 2 or 3 weeks. It reminded me of the "Puur" packaging from an earlier post.
Thanks Sian for introducing me to Wokon! You are a star! :)

Dutch Deisgn

We recently went to Holland for a short holiday to catch up with my husband's family over there. They are AMAZING!! They really looked after us and I learnt a lot over there.
One of the family members bought us some special chocolate from a Chocolatier in Gouda. I instantly loved the packaging and I had to pop it on here for everyone to see!
"Puur" is the word for "Dark" in Dutch. They specialise in Dark Chocolate. Mmmmmm... We were definitely spoilt. I didn't have time to take photos of all the chocolates as they were eaten too quickly but I grabbed a photo from their site to show you what kinds of fun things we had in the box...!
(Their site is if you are interested in seeing the gallery. The site is in Dutch so I thought you'd appreciate the pictures)

This post is about an invitation design I did based on the 1940s theme we had for my lovely friend's hen do! I based it on a telegram design. I love doing layouts for things. Simple but effective. I printed onto some special paper (a cream version of tracing-like paper). The overall look went down well.
We bridesmaids all planned a night to remember based on the style of 40s housewives. Karolina was up to the challenge and rocked the red lipstick! She looked fabulous!! What fun we had and that was only part 1..! :D
