I received something simply amazing in the post last week, something that I have been dying to share with you all. My Cameron + Whitney paper portrait. I commissioned Cameron to do this for me not long after my 22nd birthday, and it's taken a little while to get to me (all the way from America mind you) but bloody hell it was worth the wait.
Look at that little paper sculpted Alfie and Oscar too! Totally insane. He captured them perfectly. And even my tiny cloud badge which I wear a lot - it's so tiny and so perfect. It all is - Cameron is crazy talented, and I am absolutely chuffed with what he was able to produce for me. Him and Whitney are such kind and genuine people to top it off, I insist that you go over to their blog right now for a nosy, and have a look at the other amazing work that he has created. Amazing people and amazing artwork, who deserve all the success in the world and I am quite happy to pimp their name for all to hear :) I hope you can see why! Thank you so so much Cameron and Whitney, and I am super happy to have made new friends in the process of receiving this little genius portrait ♥
After working a 7 day week, saturday was a well deserved day off but full of errands and life organising to be honest. Back to work on sunday, and on all the way through to friday but then next weekend I have Brighton to look forward to. Here's some other things that have been making me smile while working like a trooper this week...
Nutella Cupcakes :) Thanks to inspiration from Helen and the Hummingbird Bakery recipe. They were so easy to make and went down a treat, and now I'm addicted to Nutella again. Chocolate on toast for breakfast every morning just shouldn't be justifiable.
New business cards from Moo in preparation for my course in London (and lots of networking me hopes) The box on the left is the new one, and on the right is my old box which has filled up with other peoples business cards I've collected in exchange for my own. The box is so handy that way, and I recommend Moo 110% for anyone looking to get great quality business cards printed. They're a bit pricey, I paid £17.99 for 50 but they were delivered super quick and have a really slick finish to them. This is my 3rd box in 3 years!
Goodies from Jenn, from her holiday in Florida! (doing a little dance right now) She got me and Katrina lots of sweeties, princess cups and gel pens and a minnie mouse arial topper to say thank you for watching her cat Milo while she was away. It all came in this awesome plastic spongebob bag, which of course I am going to find a million and one uses for because I am a cool/lame kid like that. I also think I will be really classy and drink my wine from this cup before I go out tomorrow night. Le sigh :)
Another parcel of wonderful pressies from my London art department twin Sally :) Getting to meet this lovely lady in person when I go down for the course. Sally was the Art Director on Eastenders, and I think I'll have a bit of a fangirl moment but I can't wait to pick her brains about work and music and boys and hello kitty and other cute things. Separated at birth I think! She's a wee legend. Thank you Sally ♥ She sent me so much yummy stuff and between her and Jenn I won't need to stock up on any sweet things before 2011 is out.
Misfits and then bed for me - did anyone watch the Nazi episode 4? It was one of the weirdest/random things I've ever seen, totally wasn't expecting it... but still fantastic, and none of my friends watch Misfits so I need someone to bounce Misfits chat off of! :)
