It's My Birthday!


I have had an awesome amazing incredibly fun filled weekend, which if you follow us on twitter, instagram or facebook (or all three) then you will have seen all the fun I had! (I may do a blog post of all the fun I had, if you think this is a good idea then right in the comments box, if you ignore my question then I might do it anyway...)

Now that is all out of the way, I got a pretty cool present for my birthday by a pretty awesome jewellery designer.

The designer in question is ROCKCAKES aka Sarah Meredith, who is a Brighton based lovely who just happens to be married to LOMOKEV, if any of you know how cool that is...

HOWEVER, even without being married to lomokev this wonderlady makes FANTASTIC jewellery, and I got a piece for my birthday!

I was so overwhelmed with how beautifully it was wrapped that I didn't open it straight away because I wanted the light to be nice so I could photograph the packaging. (that's how good it was!)

So here it is, packaging and all.

"The ring is angled in a way that the wearer can view the silver screen, a perfect silent cus if you are sitting in a boring meeting" 

Gorgeous little hand drawn TV

Apparently this is how Sarah wraps all of her orders!

Not too much raving Karli!

So much detail even a tiny little plug!

I also have a Rockcakes silver bracelet with a diamond pendant on it which is TOTALLY AWESOME too! Jacques bought that for me at our second Craftaganza and I never take it off. 

I have a few items on my wish list including the "Every Cloud" (has a silver lining) Bracelet! Check out her website, so you can fall in love with her jewellery too and follow her on twitter to find out when you can find her at a craft fair next!

I've got mega talented friends - 3. Matty Evans

So I have mega talented friends and this time it's Mr Matty Evans. We have just got back from Cheltenham (races) and visiting Matt so thought this would be the perfect time to big him up!

I was looking for a photo of matt and I found this one of the two of us. It made me laugh so now it's here...
He is a super genius with a spray can. Normally Matt runs around at 100 miles an hour chatting nonsense to anybody that will listen, but somehow, he manages to sit still enough to create incredible stencils to make awesome "graffiti" art.

Check out some of his shiz...

I think this is Matt's backgarden but I can't be sure because I didn't go out there...

Monkeys with KFC

A stencil Matt did for one of his friends who is a teacher, classroom

All of these photos have been stolen from his facebook, but walking around Cheltenham you can find quite a few Matty Evans pieces!

If you live in Brighton then you can check out his Cillit Bang Whale, let me know if you find it! I'll give you a hint that it is the Jubilee Street end of town! (I have been searching high and low through my photos for a photo of this but I can't find one... FAIL)

Matt doesn't have a website, or a twitter or anything that you can look him up on, mainly because he is currently studying a Masters in Landscape Design, but he's going to be famous so best to support him whilst he knows who his friends are ;)
