My friend, Jodi Henning, and I did this site for an NPO. I designed the logo and template with some hand drawn Illustartions.
She did the difficult part, the coding.
It's nice to do something for free for a really good cause.

Chocolate + Espresso = YUM 
Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar

So winter is now officially here, its freezing cold and I'm drinking about 5 cups of tea at work every day.
I catch myself staring at cakes and sweet stuff way more often then I usually would, there is just something about winter and warm pudding. I find that staring at them almost does the job, because they are almost always too sweet for me to actually eat.

Love this illustration. It's so cold that I'm pretty sure if I were a bear I'd also be wearing a tracksuit.

june 18 (Love & Peace)

On Saturday I had to cover some books in contact plastic for my nephew. 
Because the books are small there were lots of small left over pieces So I made some type out of them for my bathroom wall. It was really difficult photographing this because its see through. I like it because it's really subtle. 

How I did this: Made this design on the computer, then inverted it (put it back to front) because you need to trace the design on the back of the contact and the design will be the wrong way round if you don't.
I literally put the contact, face down, on the computer screen and lightly traced the type with a pencil. 
I then cut it out with a cutting knife.
I made light lines on the wall with a pencil of where I want to put it.
NOTE: remember to erase the lines before putting the vinyl over it, because once it is pasted you cant get rid of the line... 

june 17 (moss)

I found a tutorial on how to make type on a wall that is actual growing moss. And I just had to try and do it.
I used moss that was growing in our garden, so I'm not too sure if this will actually work, but I'll just have to wait and see! I found the tutorial here:
If this works I will upload more photos when it starts growing.
Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, my camera hasn't been treating me that well :(

Love the styling and mood.

So many little details you only notice the second and third time you watch it.

June ? (city by night)

 I didn't have internet this whole weekend. This is getting out of hand, I know. But I'm going to post some things that made me smile this weekend...
We spent Friday night walking around cape town instead of driving or getting lifts. It was so much fun and I think we are going to make a habit of it.

I have started a plant collection on my desk at work. Don't know why, but I feel my plants should have names. Edgar is my favourite.
