Birthday Goat

My sister celebrates her birth today, 23 years on.
I made her a painstakingly time-consuming friendship bracelet.
I've recently taught myself the childhood trade. It's fun for the first hour, but I literally spent ALL day yesterday knotting thread.

I also made her a card. This morning I remembered I hadn't made one, which is ridiculous as I always make one! How could I forget?
So, in about 2 hours I came up with something with such second-natured focus that I surprised myself a little.

And an envelope!

I was proud of myself, to say the least.
We are big fans of the goat.

My new years resoloution was to give peoples' gifts on time.. her presents are still in the post - I ordered them yesterday, but the card's the most important, right..? She's happy.

It's also my nan's birthday on the 27th, so my daddy and I have combined skills for her present.
It's a fox skeleton, bagged and boxed, ready for assembly.
My nan loves puzzles and foxes, so.. in a very ironic and slightly sadistic way, we combined the two for the perfect gift. It's all clean and hygiene. Organically treated, actually.
My dad sorted the fox and I designed the packaging.

Oh, the fun we have.



I have to design some MOO MiniCards for a project at college- a set of 3-5. I'm considering a set of keys. I'm not 100% decided yet.


Theres something about keys that I really love.
I've always kept all my old sets, broken keyrings and obsolete keys in a jam jar on my shelf. I feel like I want to frame them, they are like pieces of art in themselves.

This is my current set, in drawn form;
