New Job and New Art

So today I started my new job and I think I'm going to like it, It is very nice to have a proper lunch brake again haha.

Also I have listed a new piece in my etsy shop, I created the piece months ago but have only just got around to listing it:

Now avaliable in my Etsy shop :)

Seeing Red

I have taken another unplanned blog vaction, many apologies, this time it was purely due to work levels.

While I have been away I have managed to blag myself a nice new day job with Calvin Klein :)

Also whilst away I have been working on a colour project and have been drowning in the colour red:

Right now I am working on creating some new business cards and making very long lists of things I need to do before my first craft fair :)

Going Home

Over the past few weeks I have really grown to see the truth behind "the longer you spend away from home, the better it feels when you go back."

It was so nice to go home, after having not been there for a while, tonight and have my Mum's lovely cooking again.

Today has been a good day all round, good luck seems to be finding me as apposed to bad luck for a change.

As I have no more work as of yet to share with you yet (still getting back into the swing of things since Christmas) I shall leave you with a book recommendation, any Marien Keys books I keep getting lost in my current one :) and a found picture:

Where I want to be, as it is too cold!

I didn't really know what to talk about today apart from this really interesting but freaky as hell program about swarms/plagues I watched, there were so many of everything it was worrying but fascinating, the worst I think was the millions of field mice falling out of a bran, it gave me the shivers. However, by far, the best part about this program was that it was narrated by David Tennant :D
Tonight I have been working on this:

Not much else to say, how were all your weekends?

Public Transport

Despite having a lovely day today the main focus of my entry is moaning.

Since when has it been acceptable for you to pay to get on a bus to then then have someone (who I will hasten to add does not have to pay to get on said bus) taking up 3/4 of the seat squashing you and leaning on you.

This happened to me today and it made me so frigging angry, not only did I pay an extortionate amount of money to be on a bus I did not really want to be on, but I had to put up with the free rider leaning on me, grrrr.

On a happy note I had good pie this evening and its a new year.

No photos to share today as have been at work all day but be sure to scroll down and enter my Caption Competition.

Blast From the Past

For some complete unknown reason, today I had been thinking about 2 of the biggest toy crazes in the past 10 years.

Hands up who remembers Tamgotchi and Furby?

For fear of sounding extremely sad no matter how old I get they are still so cool, as cool as I thought they were back in 1997.

There is something so very odd about the way things you found fantastic in childhood never ever become sad if you wanted them as a child. Other people's nostalgic toy crazes often are the saddest of sad but yours will eternally be cool.

I was hoping to have some new work or at least some progress photos to share with you by now but my time and energy seem to be being sucked away by the never ending flu.

Instead I shall leave you with my eternally cool toy crazes from 1997 and 1998:

Why don't you tell me what your toy crazes were when you were a kid?

To a Rory Year

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and Year, apologies for the unexpected leave of absence but today is a new year a new stream of posts will ensue.

I opted for the photoless Christmas this year so not much to share, why don't you all tell me about yours???

In the spirit of new year I am still finalising what my New Years Resolutions will be, what have you guys opted for???

A final though I would like to leave you with, look at this photo I found:

Being it New Year and all, I have decided to open up a caption competition for this picture, the best one shall win a prize :)
Just leave your caption in a comment and I shall judge at the end of the month

Happy New Year :)
