Jack Frost nipping at your nose

I don't actually want much for Christmas this year - I'm quite happy to get ridiculously fat and merry with my family and maybe a cute little something something from Mr Special. But that's about all.

Having said that though, if I do have one request for that one day (that often ends one of two ways: really really bad or really really good, depending of course on your relations and extended familt & just how much Aunty Kath decides to drink), that is what ever I may be lucky to recieve is wrapped in something as awesome and schmexy as the seasonal grift wrap by those styling kids at Wrapped by housemouse.

Melbourne design house, housemouse, create award winning designer (yes, there's such a thing) wrapping paper that is 100% made locally. The paper is printed using vege-based inks on recycled Australian paper, that also happens to be acid free & pH neutral.

They've got three different styles to their

range, First: 'Wrapped in type' focuses on words and typography using orange and black ink. Second & Third: 'Wrapped in symbols' which is comprised of communicative symbols in two colours; magenta & cyan. 

They're available at mag nation (city and prahran) & brunswick bound.

Tooty McToot Toot

I've been warned by my boyfriend that if I don't promote some of my side projects that he will but - on his work blog with an unflattering pic of myself taken on the last night of Merdith '08 (the year of the great flood) and links to any social network page that could identify me along with my personal contact details.... so to avoid cringing from all parties involved here's something I prepared earlier...

I currently intern one day a week at Melbourne online and seasonal print directory Broadsheet. Which, I might add, is a pretty sweet gig.

Broadsheet stay true to an amazingly slick design ethos and promote a dedication to reporting and sharing  the current/what to keep an eye on, but with more substance and less 'tude - something that is often surpassed when covering the 'right now'.
Broadsheet saves you from grubbing up your fingers from flicking through Beat/Impress or trying to decode whether other Melbourne related directories actually like the place or not...(if you catch my drift).

But yeah - I've produced a various news pieces and countless up and coming events posts but this is the first big piece I've been involved in, which happens to have my name on it.

So if you do mosey over the Visitors section & check out EATING, SHOPPING & NIGHTLIFE for some nice haunts I think you all should pop by.
