A very special bespoke piece for non other than my very own mum! โค Mums getting married in Greece in September and is then having a wedding reception in the UK for those that couldn't make it across in October. So as I designed her invitations months ago I've been working on her on the day stationery over the last few days. Mums theme is a mix of country garden with hydrangeas and roses meets the beautiful sandy shores of the island of Zante. I'll share more of her stationery elements soon and also her overall wedding decor as it gets closer to the date... And yes, both me and mum are getting married this year (my wedding is in November ๐Ÿ‘ฐ)! ๐ŸŽ€ Ribbon by the wonderful @cfleursdesign ๐Ÿ‘Œ #bespokedesign #bespokeinvitation #onthedaystationery #weddingstationer #creativeindustry #nottinghamcreatives #weddingstationery #weddingplanning #weddingdetails #weddingtheme #misstomrs #engaged #romanticwedding #destinationwedding #blueandbeige #pinkandblue #bespoke #instawedding #silkribbon #silkspool #handdyed #traditionalwedding #natureinspired #inspiredbynature #classicwedding #gettingmarried #stationerylover #invitations

Morning:) It's time for my announcement!! H E L L O Nottingham!!! ๐Ÿ˜ Bye bye Brighton๐Ÿ˜ช Vi are re-locating mid -September and there will be a little hick-up in my Etsy shop, but not for long...maybe a week or 2 while we are settling in! Thanks to my lovely friend @bettyshekstudio my prints will keep the same amazing quality with @stampabrighton until I find someone equally good ๐Ÿ˜ฒ I will miss Brighton hugely!!! But I can sense a new period of fresh ideas with Nottingham and I am more excited than sad ๐Ÿค— Brighton have really become ludicrously expensive and we do feel pushed out by property prices! Plus we will be closer to Simon's family. So...#nottinghamcreatives it is! Look at this cute bakery @toughmarysbakehouse I LOVE that "our pockets" of coffee shops, artisan bakeries, galleries and art scene in general are exploding at the moment! There is so much to get involved in and make a difference ๐Ÿ’™ see tagged accounts for some inspo of Nottingham creatives :) X @poppressuk @handmadenotts @nottm_contemp @backlitgallery @cobdenplace @outpostcoffeeroasters @ideas_on_paper @weareprimary @smallfoodbakery .@cartwheelcoffee @cleancutkitchen @blendnottingham . . #nottingham #coffeeshop ##indieretail

As the seasons in fashion can change in a flash where one minute high street stores are stocking bikinis and sun glasses, the next its jumpers and coats. So it can be with life, seasons change. ____ However the question you have to ask yourself is,ย do you change with the seasons or do you let the seasons change you? ____ Whats the difference you ask? Well changing with the seasons its an active decision where you adjust to a new environment. ____ Whereas letting the seasons change you is passive, its trudging through without utilising the season you are in. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ

Trying to get the work/life balance right is never easy. It's actually something I struggle with on a daily basis and it begins to take its toll on my mental health more than I like to let on. Between full-time work, freelancing and renovating a house, I'm juggling a lot of plates. It's no wonder that my presence on social media has been pretty quiet over the last few weeks. However, the likes, follows and analytics are just too much pressure. That's why I've been disconnecting. You can read more about it in my latest blog post.

My second attempt at painting this design - much happier with this one! Will post a more polished picture later on, but I'm that pleased with how it's turned out that I just had to share.

Another self care routine I've really been embracing of late is taking time out during the day to read - even if it's in my lunch break. . After university I couldn't really get back into reading as I had consumed so many in-depth (sometimes interesting) intense texts & after uni it was a definite no thank you for a while. . Now, I'm always on the hunt for well designed, inspirational reads that help solve a problem (despite having no shelf space to put said books). . What have you been reading lately?
As you can see this Summer has been very good to me and I've built some insulation for Autumn/Winter. _____ Operation get #slimthick (I cannot come and die trying) is now in full swing... well from Monday.

So exciting to follow the gardening progress of Georgina Barney. We look forward to the โ€˜Spin, Dye, Weaveโ€™ workshop hosted by @georgina_barney and @linenilsentextiles next weekend in our Weave Studio. The workshop will introduce you to wool crafts and teach you about how to spin yarn from fleece, natural dyeing and weaving on a frame loom. It will be a weekend of skill-share and connecting with natural materials. To enquire about spaces for the 18th and 19th of August, or if youโ€™re interested in taking part in future workshops, please email georginabarney@gmail.com #Repost @georgina_barney ใƒปใƒปใƒป First woad seeds!

#tbthursday to a one of my favourites, a limited edition Raleigh Chopper inspired by formula 5000 back in the day. With a nod to John Player Special another Nottingham company. It wouldโ€™ve been nice to see this design on a traditional Chopper with gearstick and one piece saddle, but hey ho!!! Was still super fun, and great to see the bike come to life from sketches to production. โ€ข #designlife #freelance #freelancelife #freelancegraphicdesigner #graphicoutput #vectorillustration #vector #vectordesign #illustration #illustratorsofinstagram #illustrator #graphicdesignblog #designblog #flatillustration #graphicdesigndaily #designinspiration #nottingham #nottinghamcreatives #designdaily #designlove #designlife #designboom #designdetails #designyourown #raleighchopper #jps #formula5000 #bikedesign #retrolove #70s
I'm sure we've all seen this quote going social media and I get the premise. ____ However I have come to realise that part of growing up is having to somethings do what does not necessarily make me happy in that current moment for something greater. ____ On the blog I gave the example of having to wake up early for work, that doesn't make me happy but it has to be done. ____ So sometimes we have to sacrifice happiness on the altar of Joy.

Our next bi-monthly comics event will be on Tuesday the 14th August 2018, 7:30pm at Nottingham Writersโ€™ Studio. Matthew Robinson is a Senior Art Technician on the Animation course at NTU. He spends his days trying to convince students that light and shadow are in fact the most important elements in any story telling process. Using examples from film, animation, comics and photography, he'll be explaining the fundamentals of lighting, shadow and colour, and their importance in the development of character, scene and story. He'll be calling on Adam Willis for an illustrator's take and some live drawing, and tweaking the lighting in studio photographs of action figures to demonstrate how to bring out the character in your players. Hand-drawn image or glossy Photoshopped plate, the fundamentals of light and shade apply across the board. Ian Edginton is a prolific writer of comics with a sideline in novels and audio dramas. He counts Dark Horse, Marvel, Titan and 2000 AD among his regular publishers, and has pounded the keys for Batman, Judge Dredd, Alien, Wolverine, Star Trek, Warhammer and a host of other franchises. His most fulfilling collaborations have been with our own Matt Brooker (who will introduce the evening), notably on Leviathan and H.G. Wellsโ€™ The War of the Worlds, but Ian is possibly best known for his adaptations of The Picture of Dorian Gray and a clutch of Sherlock Holmes stories for SelfMadeHero. Oddly enough his collaborator on those was another local, I.N.J. Culbard. Ian is a double Eisner nominee and knows โ€˜the bizโ€™ inside out. No idea what heโ€™s gonna talk about. Just know this is gonna be an unmissable evening.
