I won tickets to go to the Creatives Stitches and Hobbycrafts Show in Manchester on Saturday, courtesy of “Let’s Knit” magazine. I’m very excited to go – I love talking to people about craft, I’m taking my friend MdB, and I anticipate I’m going to come back feeling like I’ve been to Disneyland!
However, I wanted to be able to tell people about Plutonium Muffins – quite often I go to fairs and markets (or even just cafes and the streets of London) and the fact that I run the site crops up in conversation. I normally scribble the address down onto a scruffy piece of paper. Not any more!
Business Card – Designer?
I’ve been trying my hand at designing some business cards. Don’t get me wrong, I come from quite an artistic family, but my forte for years was violin/viola/music in general. I’ve always drawn a bit, dabbled with photoshop, even tried my hand at designing documents for a previous job. But, I’ve never, ever thought of myself a designer. I’ve had no formal training, and no real advice or tuition on the matter.
It’s a very ingenious pattern; you and [JS] did a most excellent job with the design and the code. I also liked the extra touches like the patch and finishing options.
Yay you! You’re a brilliant designer and pattern writer (those two things don’t always go together ☺).
Designer. She called me a designer. Along with my musings on being ‘published’ the other week, I can’t really believe someone called me a designer.
Incidentally, the message was lovely to receive. I rushed to JS to show him and spent about a day glowing in the generosity of it. Thank you!
Anyway, as I said, I’m designing business cards and am wondering what to put on them. Designer? I don’t think so! I’ll probably call myself “Chief Alien” and pu up a picture of myself wearing an alien helmet. What do you think?
Is anybody else going to the show this weekend?
