Twirls and Swirls

Something new I actually did learn today, making a fabulous wallpaper for a website I am designing and I found this amazing tool in illustrator. Love new discoveries.

Sites I love

I started using google reader a while back and was definitely over eager on what I subscribed to – like news sites and such. So I have cut down on alot of sites but some I have found I continue to read continuously – and I wanted to share them with you.

Have a look and enjoy!

Starting College AGAIN

I have enrolled in a part time course at NCAD. I want to develop further skills in fashion and integrate me design knowledge. This is a textile design course, so I will get to know fabrics, printing, and all sorts. There is one this year and one next year – so at least something to occupy me intellectually for the next while.

My last 3 books

Prima Dona by Karen Swan

I read something by here by chance- so I reserved this one. was just as good. I really like her writing.

Getting Mad, Getting even by Annie Sanders

ah, alright. they all find love and all turns out OK

Down to earth by Melanie Rose

strange and weird, I was intrigued but huge anticlimax at the end. No answers, not the great suspense kind of ending just a let down.

I sold a design

Hey all, I’m very happy as I sold a design on 1069designs. Wasn’t one my favourites, but happy none the less that in the past year I have had loads of site visitors and someone took an interest enough to pay money for one. yay me!

I’m working on trying to get a new design up almost every day – if not I have my own version of a swear jar that I put a euro into when I don’t do it. So either way, win win,  I have new designs or I have some savings for a new pair of shoes.
