Awhile ago this year I was browsing in Glitzern, Melbourne and I saw these amazing 'bracelets' (that implies thin little things but these are like 'cuffs' or some sort of beautiful body armour). I liked the shape (it's so bold) and colours (there's a gold bracelet that is stunning) but you know how you walk away going, oh yeah, I'll find out a bit more about '...' - and you've forgotten the name.
So I was pleased to have recently read an interview with Elke Kramer by the Daily Imprint and seeing the 'bracelets' again... plus I found out a little more about the designer herself! Something different huh.
Browsing for wedding ring at the moment and I think there's something really cool about black rings. Not because, as Carrie says, "It's black like my soul" but I think black is chic and elegant with a hint of rockstar. I stumbled upon the mecca of ring websites called ringblog.
I really like this last one. It's made out of ceramics but the diamond plating creates a simple, sophisticated texture. Found here.
Here's to Movember from a graphic designer's point of view. These moustaches are way cuter and fun then the ones we're going to see as the boys try to bust out a non-sleazy mo for November. All for a good cause tho!
For Kay's kitchen tea, I designed new labels for the teabags we were serving, to tie into the vintage french theme (and her invites). We made customised tea bag labels for the assorted teas on the display, so we glued and re-stapled about 50 teabags. They got quite a few comments...It's all about the tiny details ladies!

I love photography blogs. During the 'ooh, iphone has hipstamatic phase', i got drawn into Hilda Grahnat's blog. I think this phase has now run its course (ie: it's all over the place). But one thing remains in vogue, playing up your property. This girl does it well:
I saw the Paper Boat Press stall at Finders Keepers and was taken by the use of beautiful words and clean design. She's a multi-tasker - she creates pottery and journals then adds her own poetry onto them - it's quite inspirational.
When in a pensive, angry or frivilously creative mood, try writing in one of these:
I managed to steal my dad's coat hanger for my room and boy, has it been convenient. It's really awesome. Old school, traditional, vanished wood style but my sister began to realise she should get one. By the time this post comes out, it will be after Kay's wedding. Makes me sad, that when I get home, I'll be alone...me and my enviable coat hanger.
I found these coat hangers by I&I Design. Can I trade my hanger with the pole line one? Maybe Kay can get one for her new home?
