Nicole Knits & Brian Draws

Brian and I got together this Saturday to plan more for Finders Keepers Market. We also took some pictures together as we figured...we're sharing a stall better have a photo together.

I love these so much. Also with the help of Natalie we designed our little logo. Everything is getting very real.

Working Hard

The last week or so I've been knitting, not stock for the market but beanies for the girls at work!
I brought them all in Wednesday and handed them out. I felt like a lime green pompom beanie and a shirt covered in cats!

I'm pretty sure the girls were happy with them too.

It's really nice to work in a place, in a Studio where we are all so supportive of the out of work activities we all do! Thanks Team!

Frankie & Gin

This past Wednesday evening I was lucky enough to be taken to the Frankie Magazine 10th Birthday Party as Lynley won tickets!

There were cake stalls and crafting and lots of wine to be consumed it was such a lovely evening!
And to make it even better one of my favourite bands The Twoks scored the gig to play at the party.
Possibly the highlight of the night was getting to chat to all of the staff at Frankie, including Jo the Editor! It's so nice to chat to similarly minded creative types. Lynley and I also finally got to hang out properly with Jacqueline aka Auf Wiedersehen. We've been following each others creative endeavours online for years it was nice to chat in person.

Oh there was this too.

The wonderful Karin Locke had a photobooth set up for everyone to take Awkward Portraits. Lynley and I adore these so much.

And Now to yesterday. Yesterday was World Gin Day, so naturally Gin was consumed.

I better get back to knitting for Finders Keepers! x

Sickness & Swearing

Stephen Fry once said "The sort of twee person who thinks swearing is in any way a sign of a lack of education or a lack of verbal interest is just a fucking lunatic.” I don't know anyone who would argue with the great Fry.

I've been sick the last week or so thought I got better then got worse again. I hate being sick, being unproductive and sitting in bed doing nothing.

I have so much to do for Finders Keepers and I cannot do it whilst lying in bed. 
Fuck being sick.

Clear Lake - May 2014

Another year another visit to my favourite place, Clear Lake. We just did a long weekend away, up late on the friday night came home Monday. The weather was surprisingly good for up there, we were expecting the worst.

So here are a mix of pictures I took over the weekend. A mix of instagram and my DSLR.

This is no joke the best gin ever. Fire, good company and G&T's nothing could be better

Got up at sunrise as is tradition. The lake is getting more and more empty as the years go on. Very muddy though. No lack of mud.
