Happy Valentines Day

Hello world! Happy Valentine's Day to you all. I was awoken this morning by man lovely man with a cup of tea, a pain au chocolat, and a glass of orange juice :-) How sweet. I am cooking duck with plum sauce tonight and a hot melt in the middle chocolate dessert. Yummy.

Here's a sneaky peek at the fab card I got for Tom, my other half. It was bought from Iconic Designs and is completely handmade, I'm so pleased with it:

I'm lucky enough to have the day off work today as it's half term, so I will hopefully be able to take some photos of my work if the sun comes out. I have just officially put myself on the waiting list for my page to be rebranded by the fantasticArtwork By Angie. I will have to wait a little while but I'm completely convinced it will be worth it as her previous work is just gorgeous! Check out her page if you get a minute, and also her giveaway!

Well, I've got a busy day ahead of me so I had best make a start!

Gosh, what a drama!

Sorry it has been a while since I last posted. Things have been... interesting! Other than being ill, my partner's little brother being hospitalised, two birthdays, and other general happenings, I have had a major setback in my business re-branding! I am completely gutted that the logo (and banner and business cards) that I had designed and that I was SO pleased with, are in fact illegal to use! It turns out that the designer had stolen images from a stock image site and used these to sell on to others as logos. I am not allowed to use my logo, even if i purchase the image from the original site.  So it's back to the drawing board for me!! I'm sad that I have to start again, and annoyed that I have paid money and trusted someone who has been lying to people. But I am worried for those who had got further than me and paid a lot of money to have their logos printed onto merchandise etc. Luckily I had only printed some business cards on my home computer and had not yet invested in the 500 proffesionally printed cards I was planning on.  It leaves a bitter taste in the mouth!  I hope all those affected by this manage to get compensation! On that note, I am going to end this post as I will probably just have a long rant otherwise :)

My next post will be much more cheerful and positive I'm sure! And I won;t leave it so long either...
