Who wants ice cream!



An esteemed colleague of mine did a little online shopping recently and found some really cool iPhone cases from SwitchEasy. They have quite a few worth checking out. This one's called Melt and comes in a whole range of colours. But wait, there's more! You get a cleaning cloth, headphone and power socket protectors, screen guard, video stand and dock adaptors!

That cool shopping cart organiser is available from ThinkGeek.

I know ALL the shortcuts!


Okay maybe not ALL the shortcuts, but the useful ones at least.

So yesterday, I noticed my little shortcut sheets got pinned on Pinterest. Then re-pinned a few hundred times! Needless to say, I was quite thrilled. These sheets started as a bit of help for my office buddies from other departments who wanted to learn a little Photoshop and inDesign. Good skills to have in the newspaper industry. I had a little look around to see what other sheets were like and noticed that they either had way too many shortcuts to be concise and useful or were just ugly, so I made one with all the shortcuts I use daily that I've memorised over the years.

Since there was such overwhelming interest (200 hits in one day certainly counts as "overwhelming" to me), I made one for Illustrator to finish off the set! Anyway, thank you so much for visiting! I'm really glad everyone's finding them useful. \(^_^)/

Killer moves on crutches


An esteemed colleague of mine discovered an awesome app called Autodance... And we just had to make a little video of my killer dance moves!
{Wooo Wooo Wooo, Barbra Streisand}

Why am I on crutches? Facebook BROKE my foot! Read all about it here.

It has been quite a slow month but I'll start doing designery things again once I'm back on my feet (get it, "back on my feet" hahahahahaha). Seriously though, no more foot posts! I swear!

It's off to work I go...

Dis jus how I roll! 
It hasn't even been a week since I broke my foot and I'm already back at work. I'm just dandy in case anyone was wondering. I spent a fairly big chunk of my day explaining how I sustained this extremely stupid injury to random co-workers who were just passing by. A few even noted that I don't get much sun. I didn't realise it was that bad until I saw the photo. It's sort of like a radioactive glow. Yes, my pose isn't exactly lady-like, but if I don't keep my foot elevated my toes change colour and feel strange. Fun times!

Anyway, I just wanted to point out that I felt like a humongous moron today. Hopefully everyone'll get over it soon. I KNOW I SURE HAVE!

If you've only just tuned in, here's how Facebook BROKE my foot!


*** Amendment 7.2.12 ***
Last night I realised that I overdid it. I went back a little too soon. Turns out, sitting like that for a long period of time is a really bad idea. My legs are aching and my underarms really hurt from lugging myself around on those shitty crutches! I really do hope everyone's enjoying this!!!
