Well, it’s the end of another busy week. Busy doing what? Goodness knows, but I always find that I’ve no time for anything else. A bit of work, paid & unpaid this week. Am working on my lovely daughter’s school Christmas Bazaar programme and  fundraising recipe book. Although these are both unpaid work, it is nice to produce something that I have completely free reign with the design. Without going overboard I also set myself a few little learning curves when doing freebies as it gives me the opportunity to experiment a bit and try out a few new things. Non-paying clients are a good thing sometimes, but of course don’t pay the bills.

Also been busy with more decluttering, got rid of my old PowerMac G4 – it was a very good friend and got me through two of my four years doing me Graphics Degree, but it was time we parted so onto Gumtree it went. Needless to say, it was a bargain and was snapped up quickly. It’s nice to know it’s gone to a good home for some little kids to discover the wonders of Apple. Always good to introduce youngsters to the world of Apple, such a nice place!

A few thoughts about Christmas shopping entered my mind on the odd occasion and even the tedious card writing task was given a fleeting moment of brain space. The decision on that will probably end up  being as it has been for the past x number of years, don’t write cards. I’m all for saving the planet so my little bit of laziness is my contribution to global survival. No cards = fewer trees lopped. Another e-card a day before the big event again I suspect. Watch this space!

Must sign off  now, off to watch my darling children swoosh down the slopes at the Snow Centre. Have a great weekend.

After many years of wishing I could be successful in a profession that I actually enjoyed, I embarked on a new career as a Graphic Designer. By gaining a BA(hons)Graphic Design in 2009 I have realised my dream of being part of the creative industry. In my capacity as designer I listen to my clients needs, suggest practical solutions and aspire to portray their business in a professional and creative manner. I am competitive with my prices as I like to stay affordable for smaller businesses like myself. However, this doesn't mean I compromise on the quality of my work. I pride myself with being a bit of a perfectionist and would only ever give 100% to every project I take on. I'll be honest with you if I feel I'm not the right person for the job. I know what I'm good, but equally I know where my skills might not be as strong for what you need. There is no point me telling you I can help, then turn around it three months time and say, sorry, I can't do that. I have many contacts within the design industry who will have skills that I can't deliver and I'll happily recommend them to you if I feel I can't help. Please contact me for any web design, Shopify e-commerce site, digital marketing & graphics work you might need - I enjoy a challenge and will gladly take on any job, big or small
