it's my graduation in a couple of weeks so i'm uk bound for that. i feel really important when i get to say i'm a qualified designer! it all seems to unreal!!.... continuing on the topic of design, i received an email last week from a company who i did some design work for before jetting to Africa. i had all but given up on ever hearing anything but alas-an email of positives came my way.... i can't say more yet though-it's a secret!!
design was something i never thought Tanzania to be awash with opportunities for, but this time i've been completely amazed at just how many businesses there are here producing some of the most beautiful designs i've ever seen. I'm still finding it as inspirational as ever here, and accidentally today i stumbled upon this website, www.loveliveafrica.com and i've been sat here for ages just listening to the music and looking at the images. If you're going to look at that link, you must also read Witchmountains latest blog on life on the North Yorkshire Moors, England.
So i'm really not sure life can get much better?! you tell me! everywhere i look here i find my sight full of an image that is worthy of a photograph, whether it's women carrying unbelievable loads on their heads, or a misty, sleepy mountain in the early morning sunshine....

Once back in the UK i have an embroidery workshop to run as well as featuring with Kim Tillyer of Witchmountain at the Designers Marketplace in middlesbrough on the 22nd November!....
the exhibition at TS1 Gallery is due to come down this week, but they took a lot of my jewellry collection to sell in the shop so you never know, thay might owe me money when i get back!!
these pictures are of Oldonyo Lengai in the rift Valley, (the beautiful mountain) and also the amazing waterfall, as well as a view on my way to the Lake!
are you jealous??!

For the next two weeks, i am working as part of the Workhouse Studio team in Kilmacthomas they are a team of 6 designers who produce jewlery and beautiful products, check my link....
I'm heading up to West Port on thursday to spend the night there and attend an exclusive opening night of some of the Workhouse studio's designers work.... so that should be exciting! i'm trying my best to take photo's to fill me full of inspiration but am always too busy gawking around or talking to remember....ah well!!
love and peace guys x

Last weekend went down nicely too, with a busy saturday night at work, followed by a trip to the local club with lovely friends and dancing until the early hours....
oh, it looks a bit packed here doesn't it? i abandoned this part of the club and escaped upstairs to a R&B night. excellent news.
Last weekend my artistic friend from witchmountain also made an ETSY sale, and has MANY more lovely things for you all to fall in love with.
Africa is also on the carsds again, see you soon, Tanzania!
and, no, that is not a baby bump you see, it is in fact my bag before another person tells me i look pregnant!

I was also kindly taken out for dinner tonight by a very nice friend, so should be fully rested and energised for tomorrows brooch making session in preparation for Ireland in a couple of weeks. Infact the brooch making might just have to be squashed into the morning as i am hoping to go swimming to Hemsley outdoor pool with my friend Kim, from Witchmountain.... she's busy designing and making at the moment too, i saw a beautiful little girls t shirt she had made the other day, it was sooo adorable!

i've spent so much time showing people my work recently, at college, interviews, general friends and family the lidt is never ending.... but one thing i did discover is that no one seems to realise that any colour of fabric, any printed surface or dye/printing paste has been selected, experimented to no end with to achieve the perfect hue. not just bought ready to use within designs! i think quite a few people have found this on the textiles and surface design course....
