Snow Days....

So  apparently people have been 'panic buying' in our local shop...leaving the shop now milk-less and bread-less and basically quite empty.Oh no. Disaster. So off dad and I venture into the snow on this ever so cold snow day.

He drove. I took pictures.

p.s I never left the car to do this. It is cold outside don't you know.

Goldsmiths Company Precious metal Bursary 2010.

...and so as a 4th year, *eeek* it is now our turn to tackle this years Precious Metal Bursary; creating a  piece/range which should hopefully link  in with our final degree show. We are trying  to win a bursary which will allow us to use precious metals such as gold and silver(or even platinum etc) which we originally would never have been able to even contemplate using due, to high cost of precious metals.

Excuse any spelling mistakes.
I fear there shall be many  as too many late nights have gone into this, that when I look I can no longer tell.

To Goldmsiths!

cultural opportunities that lie ahead for Dundee' in the near future.

The designer of the card selected as the winner will receive £250 and copies of the printed card.

The card will be incorporated as the official Christmas Card for two MSPs and one MP representing the city in Scottish and UK parliaments and will be sent to around 800 organisations and individuals from their address books and may be similarly sent out by other sponsors. The costs of the card will be donated to charity.'

The Card:
'praised for its' cultural references, colour and particularly the humour of it.'


The winner: to my great surprise I have won,so I now have a little teeny weeny prize giving to go to on the 19th.

Christmas always manages to cheer me up and the penguins do looks sweet don't they?
