Happy Holidays!

I'm getting in early with my Christmas greetings! Hope you all have a lovely Christmas break, see you in a few days when I will be significantly plumper...

PS - be careful if you're travelling, we spun the car and got a flat tyre this week, v. scary!

Retro Food

The last project of the semester had us choosing between a range of briefs - from Darwin to Sea Shanties. I chose a combination of themes: Recipes and Mistakes.

I took four Betty Crocker recipes that struck me as particularly forward-thinking (circa 1960) and thought I'd do them with a bit of an atomic look. I also used type from old American motel signs.

There are plenty of things I'd change but I also had my dissertation in this week so it wasn't plain sailing! That's all done now and I await my mark after Christmas. All I can do now is consume my weight in mulled wine and hope for the best.

Tomorrow I start a short internship which will be interesting. Wish me luck!

PS - The Winter Fair last weekend was a knockout, we made £416 for our Degree Show!

Roll Up! Roll Up!

Today my friends and I will be holding a stall at The Mill Road Winter fair in Cambridge.

As the poster suggests, we will be selling allsorts of handmade and hand-drawn goodies perfect for Christmas presents. If you're in the area the event is well worth checking out - lots of foodie stalls, Chinese dancing dragons, live music etc etc.

Wish us luck - we're raising money for our Degree Show!
