Street Party!

Our little street is having a party in celebration of the Royal Wedding and the fact that we get a day off! I was tasked with designing the invite and here is what I (hurriedly) came up with! I hope you like it.

I am really struggling lately to do some decent design work away from the day job. The work I am designing at work is great but everything else that I have been asked to do is so rushed and hardly thought out at all, it's such a shame. Maybe when the hockey season ends and the days get longer I shall find all the time I need... roll on summer :)

Oh no!

I missed the deadline for the Spoonflower baby boys pattern as it was today... silly Jess!
Anyway, here is my 2nd design, I hope you like it

Sock-it-to-me have also done a little piece about my socks, you can see it here if you like. This weeks job will to be amend the design a tiny bit as apparently my little robo's are too close together. It's also a link to their sock design page. Enjoy!

Last Friday night Sock-it-to-me's International competition ended. I'd already made it into the top 28 and was amazingly getting votes from all over the world for my sock design. I came in 2nd!!! I win $100 and they are going to put my sock into production! How cool is that! Thank you so much to everyone who voted Robo-sock, it's brilliant to get placed in such a massive international competition. I am a super happy Jess indeed! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The competition finishes at 10am PST which I believe is 5pm GMT, if you like my sock design please vote for me! At the moment I seem to have the most votes which means I shall most probably make the top 10 and may even have a chance to be placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd! It's going to be a long 6 hour wait!
Please vote Robo-socks!

My Robo-sock made it into the top 28 of the Sock-it-to-me sock competition, final voting is happening now until Friday and I'd love to be placed. If any of you like my sock and would like to vote for me you can find the link here.

At the moment I am 3rd and would love to use my winning socks for a blog give-away!

Two Bloggy things have happened to me this week, firstly the most exciting!

Look what arrived in the post at the weekend all the way from the other side of the world! Arn't they brilliant, and so beautifully designed. They are from Victor Fox. I'd entered her blog give away and I was lucky enough to win one of her woodland card range sets, and here they are. I love all of the added detail Victor Fox has added, especially this little tag about Fox Hunting. It's the attention to detail that really makes this product quality... and yup, I'm so jealous I didn't think of it first!

Sorry Clare I swiped the images from your blog, yours seemed much better than the ones my camera took.

In other news the 12th March will be my 1 year blog Birthday. What a speedy year that was! Thank you to my 30 followers, I hope you enjoy my ramblings and it hasn't been too painful for you!

Wow! Is anyone on blogger not entering the design a sock contest?!?

Here are my designs for the Sock It To Me- Design a sock competition!

I really really would like you to all pop along to their facebook page and vote for them, it would mean a lot and I'd love to get somewhere with them, how cool would it be to be a sock designer! Voting opens from the 7th and the winner is announced on the 18th!

I wish I'd had the time to do more but what with working full time and the hockey season being in more than full swing I am crazy busy! I hope you like them.
