The latest in my series of font photos from museums is from the wonderful Museum of London Docklands, which just gets better and better with every visit! The museum covers the full history of the docklands area, with historical artefacts and displays which bring to life a sense of culture through the years. There’s a great […]
Now that the bulk of the festivities are over, I’ve finally gotten around to posting the outcome of part two of my present-wrapping extravaganza. This is what I made for my wrapping paper for Christmas in my hometown of Allentown, PA, USA. I used two of the same stamps from the UK Christmas, but they […]
Did a little light sketching this evening, without hope or agenda, and just sat down to see what happened. Played around a bit with putting watercolour down and then sketching loosely on top of it, and also had a look at hand drawing some typeface. What I ended up with were a series of little […]

They were used for information gathering, meetings, and also living […]
A while ago I went on a domestic binge and decided to hand sew pillowcases for the odd shaped pillows in the house. At the time, I never got further than the purchasing of material. This is not a huge surprise. But finally, a full pillowcase has been sewn! Got to this step without photo […]
After spending the better part of, say, my entire holiday in bed with some sort of evil cold/flu/plague hybrid, I managed to cut out all the letters for the tags that I needed. I then combined the tags with the two specialty papers: Add in a bit of Washi tape, brown packing paper, and red […]
