Wedding Chalkboard Emma Reid Design

Wedding Chalkboard Design

I hadn’t done any chalk work since moving to Chippendale, so I jumped at the chance to create a chalkboard sign for my friend Holly’s wedding last October. After making a sketch, I ended up using chalk markers for the final design, because of it’s intricacies and the small size of some of the letters. Overall, […] Read more…

The Music and The Memories

Riding on the train today, heading home to Newcastle to spend New Year’s Eve with some of my nearest and dearest and I rediscovered in my iTunes playlists a mix cd, compiled for me by one Scott Donnelly a few years ago now.

Hello! Even if you’re not a fan of Valentine’s Day, you can’t argue that telling someone how much you love and care about them is a wonderful thing to do. This year in particular I’m feeling the love, and I wanted to use my skills to help everyone else feel and share the love too. […] Read more…

The West Wing

THE WEST WING

On the weekend I decided it’s time to find out what ‘Josh Lyman is gesticulating wildly’ about and why so many of my favourite friends love and quote The West Wing. Goodbye next 100,000 minutes of my life, right? Turns out, only a few eps in, I’m completely hooked.  It’s funny. It’s clever. It’s cute […] Read more…

Truth!

I have one of those faces you can read like a book. Lying was never going to be easy for me, so it’s fitting that I’m also 100% morally opposed to it. Surely it takes more effort to make something up. Puts you under more stress to keep your story straight. Not to mention, you’re […] Read more…
