'appy days

My other half and I have finished planning out 2 week USA road trip honeymoon! We are doing a week in San Francisco for the wedding and then driving Highway1 and across to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon! We have loads planned and will start booking in a few months! Excited to be a wife! Bought a swimsuit for it last week - over planned? Yeah thats me!

I also have loads of things moving along on the business side of things... lots of new projects and collaborations and its all go at I am Magpie HQ! I also have the outline prepared for not one but 2 stories that I have put on the back-burner for years. I am one for tackling too many things simultaneously but if it works don't fix it eh?

Soon I will be posting a little how to for you all and I will keep you updated on projects. In the mean time pop over to for the new website which looks fab!

Graze snack box

It came through my letter box like a hero in the afternoon. 4 little sections each dedicated to my stomach at this fragile lunch time.

The Beach contains bananas, mango and pineapple. Naked goodness seeds are lush. Copacabana is brazil nuts and chocolate and the lost army oriental crackers.

Now go away and leave me to graze.

Spolit at Christmas and New Year BIG Ideas

Hey there!

I got totally spoilt at Christmas. And we bought an iPad. iTastic. Ha!

Here are a few of the things I got:

What did you get under your tree?

For 2011 I have big plans:

1st: This week I am re-designing my website and branding. As a designer I think it is easy to overlook and overthink your style but I think this time I need to change it! It looks lush at the moment...

2nd: New fairs: I am hoping to broaden my fair horizons with weddings and of course, more craft markets!

3rd: I am going to learn my new skills, and put them to good use. Can't wait!

4th: Puppy. Yes. This is the year I get my puppy. After I worked out how to balance the work/home deal I worked out I can finally have a dog. We are very excited, young pup should be along in March-ish

5th: Health. Its 16 months til our own wedding and we want to use this time to get fit and eat better. I am not cutting out anything in particular just control! 

6th: 30. Its less than six months until my birthday. I am excited although I am not doing anything really!

7th: House: I have some plans to make the house over a bit, just small things and a lot in the garden for pup.

Have you made a things to do in 2011 list? Its good to have plans, no matter how tiny. My new FiloFax is essential in this! Love it!!
