A found memory


I found this the other day in my memory box. It was a gift handmade by one of my bridesmaids and given to me for a hen present. I want to frame it but I'm still looking for the right frame. It will be up in the future.
It's now a year since my hen do! Wow! Good times :)

HCF Stars in their Eyes 2011!


Well last night was the biggest HCF "Stars in their Eyes" event yet! The set was awesome and the performances were definitely entertaining! Thanks to the guys who put a TV backstage for us to see the performances this time. Good call!
It was so much fun - even if I had to make sure I didn't stain anything with the mass of body paint I was covered with all night. It took 40mins for a friend to plaster on the paint! - And no i didn't do anything to my teeth!
I was on first as "Tina Turner" singing "Proud Mary!" It was so much fun! I hope I made her proud ha! Although I didn't win I'm glad I did it because it was just a fantastic night. All 9 acts gave it their best and the gents who did the "Blues Brothers" were deserving winners. What a performance. Well done guys!
And thanks Dad for the photo! :) x

Personalised Jar Labels!




The above images (that were taken by my boss) show the first ever of my designs up for sale! Woooo!
They are part of the new Cherrygorgeous products that are making their way through to production this year. Exciting! And the labels were a project that I was heavily involved with.
Along with my boss, we created a range of personalised jar labels for homemade preserved fruit/veg/pickle jars. I feel so privileged that my designs are being used by the business. Thanks Dee! :)
Check out the link for details of the product (yes it really is online - I can't believe it)!

Cherrygorgeous Post

One of my tasks on the side was to hunt for vintage bridal gowns on ebay.co.uk to post about on the Cherrygorgeous blog yesterday. There were many vintage-style that I found but most auctions ended before I could post about it, however there's a few good ones that I did manage display. Most were around the £350 mark *buy now*. Take a look if you like :)

Do you remember me?






Unexpectedly last week I was given the opportunity to bring my Maud doodle alive! I had a day to play with at my placement and was told that I could concentrate on experimenting with him. This is a small card range that I managed to produce. I tweaked them slightly this week - after my first appraisal at my placement (which went really well, praise God). I love my little reindeer and I'm really happy with how he's turned out! My favourite designs are the last 2. Are you feeling festive yet? :) I'm getting there...
