Uh! I am having one of those days today.

Anyway quit with the moaning. This weekend I was on a Portfolio box making course at Hot Bed Press which was taught by the very talented Lucy May Schofield. We learned how to make an archival portfolio box in which you can store prints and photographs safely for many years. They are stunning pieces, but I was a little concerned that my lack of precision would really let me down. However, my box turned out perfect! The measurements were slightly dubious but the overall result was amazing (even if I do say so myself). I am addicted now so next weekend I am putting my skills to use and making some more boxes. When I heard about the book binding course that Lucy does, I confess I did get a little over excited.
I also wanted to direct people over to another blog that I have found which is about Charlotte Taylor’s trials and tribulations of starting up her own fashion label, which she will launch at London Fashion Week Feb 2010.
I love how she describes her move .”Amid the depths of darkest recession a crazed yet determined girl decided it was an appropriate time to up sticks, leave her job and start up her own fashion label under her own name, and with that CHARLOTTE TAYLOR was born”.
I mean really, who leaves their job in a recession to create their own company???? (yeah that will be me also).
