Had this gorgeous lemon meringue today at a little coffee shop with my friends! The shop had a short power cut so I began with pudding first! The portions were very generous but very yummy!

I love my friend Katy's beautiful knits and thought I would dedicate a blog post to her work and with it being Christmas just around the corner these cute snowmen baby blankets definitely make you want a snuggle with one.
Katy is a recent graduate from Hull College of Art, within her final year she chose to specialise in Knit and its easy to see why! So Talented! I can do a bit of knitting myself but more like the knitting you do with your grandma.
Katy's work also includes hand made jewellery items along with scarves, here is a quote from the lady herself about her work:
"No piece is the same meaning the wearer has a unique and personal item to wear. Colour and design variations are available."
For more information on Katy's work visit her blog: www.katysknits.blogspot.com or feel free to drop her an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. She is also available for commissions!

I really can't believe its over! It has been about 3 weeks since graduation and it has to of been the proudest day of my life. This is my official graduation photograph I got took. I thought this might of gone horribly wrong but I am happy with it. The silly thing is the scroll you hold isn't the real certificate, you get that when you go on stage. I hope everyone is very proud from the Class of 2011, you all should be!

This week me and one of my fellow printers Miss Charlotte Pennock set on a road trip to the monday night print club at CCAD! It was quite strange being back at uni, especially knowing we aren't students any more but we soon got back into the swing of things.
Whilst I was there I was able to get four of my screens exposed so I have more designs to experiment with. Technician Vicky was at hand to remind me about screen coating as I always dread it. I don't know why, I think its because I never feel confident doing it and usually make a mess.
The three hours seemed to fly by but I managed to print a few more bags for the college shop which I believe is still open so i recommend it for a look!
It was soo great to be back in the print rooms, I love printing at home although I definitely miss the atmosphere at CCAD. If you love printing I certainly recommend print club :)

Graduation came last week at Middlesbrough on the 23rd of November. Middlesbrough was covered with people in their red, black and grey caps and gowns. It was like a harry potter take over, so amazing. It was very windy! I was surprised everyones hats stayed on!
It was such a proud moment walking up to collect our certificates, but most of all it was so great to see everyone. I can't believe how much I have missed everyone. Everyone looked fantastic and fab in their outfits. Me and the girls had lots of pictures taken by our families.
I would just like to wish everyone a successful future and lots of happiness in the year to come. And pleaseeeee keep in touch! I miss you all lots and have had the best 3 years of my life, the hard work has certainly paid off :)
