The Truth About Corgis

This is such a cute article, the truth about corgis, written by a corgi. It had me laughing all the way & left me with a huge smile on my face. Don't you just love corgis!! :-)

My new theme - UPDATE!

I'm so excited about my new theme! I found the cool vector of the girl on the laptop online...I'm not that good as an illustrator yet...but I did add my own illustrated corgi! What do you think of it? I think the corgi looks so cute...and cartoonish...just how I wanted. Do you like it?

The colors look great and I am so happy with how it turned out :-)

Food! mmm...

I love food & I love to eat, and you wouldn't know that if you saw me. I am pretty thin even though I eat what my boyfriend eats ( and sometimes more :-), and that's because I have a really high metabolism...or so that's what the doctor says. It runs in my mother's side of the family. We are all shortish, thin people with high metabolism...pretty funny! :-)

Don't get me wrong, I'm not bragging at all. I wish I was a teeny bit bigger, I feel too skinny sometimes, and I can't wear certain clothes because I am afraid of how thin I look in it. It's so hard for me to gain even 1kg! I was teased in school, and some kids used to say that I was anorexic...and I SO AM NOT! I love my food and I could eat all day...haha. I certainly don't starve myself. I cannot put on weight no matter how much I stuff myself.
I think I would have to eat 24 hours straight to maybe put on 2kgs. Urgh! Anyways.... (rant over)

The point of this post was actually this really cool & funny blog that I found...about FOOD :-)

My new theme

As you may notice, I have decided to change my blog's theme. I wanted to go for something a little more cute. But it isn't complete yet. I plan to change the pattern in the background, as well as replace the birdie in the image. I want to put a corgi there, so I've decided to start illustrating my own version of a corgi...keep your eyes open...coming soon! :-)

While searching for new background patterns, I came across this site:
They have the cutest patterns I've seen so far. Enjoy!

I wanna be just like this!

What I mean is...I wanna be just as good as this vector artist. WOW I just love his work. And I just recently got my Wacom tablet, and that should help me alot. Gotta start practising! :-)

Check out his gallery here:

Top Site - my own :-)

Today's Top Site is my very own work :-) I designed this website for my boyfriends new company. He throws his own club parties, and he is also going to be producing music under his own recording label - Minimal Groove Recordings.

Have a look at the website and let me know what you think!

Top Site!

As some of you might know, I used to do "Fave Site of the Week", where I would showcase my favourite site of that week.
Well I haven't been too good at keeping that! So I've decided to just showcase a "Top Site" as I find it, instead of doing one for every week.

Today's Top Site comes from Soup Studios. I love the use of color on this site, so funky, fresh & fun! It has that crafted look that seems to be taking over the industry, and I really like it!
What do you think?

Our friend is a professional photographer, and he joined us on boxing day for lunch. He whipped out his fancy camera & took some AMAZING photos.

This is me with my baby Bella :-)

Here is my boyfriend with Bella.

He took some amazing photos of our Beagle Liam. Pity Bella is camera shy...haha!
Hope you like them!

I have always thought that lolcats were hilarious. I was so happy when I found, because they have all the lol's for dogs! I tried to gather up as many corgi lol's I could find, and here they are. So cute & funny!


It's arrived!

My Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet has finally arrived! A bit of a late christmas present, but at least its here.

I've plugged it in & tested it out, and it's even better than I ever imagined! I'm so excited!

This will give me more freedom with my designs, and I hope to become a good illustrator since drawing has always been my passion.

Thank you my handsome soulmate for a wonderful christmas gift! Mwah xxx

Can't make up my mind

I have been looking around for a new collar for Bella, since our Beagle decided that her collar was a toy & chewed it all up! LOL! The range of collars here in SA are really....boring. So I decided to look online. I found some really beautiful collars on &, but unfortunately won't deliver to South Africa, and muttropolis would deliver, but it was way too expensive. My only option is ebay!

Ebay has so many great great actually...that I just can't make up my mind on which collar to order! So I'm asking my followers to hopefully let me know which collar they think is cutest for a corgi princess :-)

Out of these *blingy* collars, I would go for the light pink at the bottom! And look at already has Bella's name on it!! LOL :-)

So please let me know what you think & help me choose one! Thanx!
