I looooooooooove this time of year! As the song goes 'It's the most wonderfull time of the year'. As a crafter getting into the swing of christmas is a given, it's the perfect chance for us all to let our creative juices flow and our imaginations run wild with decorating, wrapping, gift buying and making, cooking... Unfortunately time has not been my friend this year (what with Hello Hula's participation in the Funky Craft Fayre this December, which was good fun btw - pics to come), but I thought I'd post a couple of the amazing and inspirational D.I.Y's that I've found on the blogosphere this festive season.
First up, is this creative way of stringing up your christmas lights from Jordan at Oh Happy Day. The colours and pure ingenuity of this hand crafted twinky light garland make my heart flutter. A fantastic tutorial.

Ok, so I know this list has been making the rounds on the blogosphere a lot recently, but it's so inspiring I had to post it. I am great at 1, 2 and 30 and not so great at 4, 18 and 26. And as for 27, what a great idea, next time a get a creative block I'm picking up my nearest Collins Dictionary!

Last Thursday I had to go to the dentist to get my bottom wisdom tooth out, I've been in pain and rendered useless ever since (Man, losing teeth is a pain in the ass!). On the upside it's given me a lot of time to root around the internet, and wow are there some inspiring things out there at the moment. Something that really caught my eye though was the work of Illustrator Becca Stadtlander. Her illustrations are both whimsical and pretty, and her use of colour is spot on, take a look and see what you think... I think my favourite is the tiger, what's yours?

It's November, Sunday brought the official end to British Summertime (although Summer itself has been long gone) and so YCN crack out their Annual Student Awards. Launched yesterday, the awards offer up briefs by the likes of Ted Baker (second year in a row), high street giant Marks and Spencer, and even Hollywood heavy-weight 20th Century Fox!
The deadline for submissions is March 25th 2011, so there's plenty of time to really get your teeth into several projects. I know I'll definitely be entering a few. You can catch all the briefs here, good luck!

Hello blog world, it's been a while. I haven't had the chance to blog all summer. I spent from June until a week ago living and working on the Greek Island of Rhodes, without my laptop (I'm not sure how I coped). So now I've got a lot to catch up on, but I can't wait to start blogging properly (I'm dreaming up some exciting posts as I type). But for now here are some pictures of the island...
