A little burst of excitement as I opened my mailbox to find these photo books inside.

I ordered them through Chatbooks which links to my instagram account, it automatically prints and sends me a new book every 60 photos I take. This is a simple but excellent solution for having so many photo’s on my computer never being printed or even seen. There’s so much more I want to do with them but at least this is a good start and it requires no extra effort 🙂

Olivia loves sitting down and looking at all the photo’s, pointing to faces of special people she knows and of things she loves.


Life changing discovery

I have just discovered wordmark! It is an incredible resource for choosing a font to use in a new design. Gone are the days of going through each font installed on my computer (and there are many!) one by one to find the perfect style. Now I just simply type a word and it will display that word in all of the fonts loaded on my computer. Instantly I can compare font styles, thicknesses, etc. until I find the desired effect I am trying to create.

Give it a try, it can be pretty addictive!


Decorate your desktop

Monday mornings call for a freshly brewed coffee and a desktop makeover.

I love changing the wallpaper on my computer and phone. It’s a super simple way to get some new ‘artwork’ and it is refreshing to sit down and see a new gorgeous background.

Here are a few of my picks for this week:

Which is your favourite? I’ve currently got ‘nourishment’ but thinking I may have to swap it soon for the floral one!
