Getting Ready for Halloween

We just bought our pumpkins for Friday. We are getting very excited about our favorite holiday. Dennis and I are getting ready to carve the hell out of those things. I wanted to make mine into a cat, but I don’t think I have the appropriate skills to have that turn out right. I’ll post pictures of them up when they are done as well. I did not ice something really interested when I took these pictures. Check out what the plastic bag says. I have never seen a 100% degradable plastic bag. Well, it turns out the bags are made out of corn I think. I’ll need to ask the Green Grocer about this.

It Was Freezing Today!

It was 49 F today, and there is no avoiding the rain. I walked to the studio today because I missed the bus. I need to remember to get up earlier. It was bloody cold, and it stayed that way the whole day. Julie and had our own personal little heaters with us the whole day. The worst was when I went out to get take away at this fabulous Indian curry house. The food smelled fabulous, but I was freezing my butt off. Just imagine being right by the seafront in 49 degree weather. Nevertheless, it was a spectacular day. We got loads of projects done, and we had lots of friends over to help.

Dorset Cereal Packaging

Now, I haven’t tried this cereal, but I hear it is quite tasty. I saw these at the local market, and noticed the absolutely beautiful package design. I love the different colors used to distinguish the flavors. Additionally, I love that the company was brave enough to change the color of the logo to better match the color of each flavor’s box design.

Oh Those Cats…

I have recently been spending quite a bit of time with Mr. Marmalade. He really answers to kitty, but his official name is Marmalade. Anyhow, I came across this video that explains exactly what we go through with him every day. We found it hilarious, but it’s hard to explain to people who live without the joy of having a cat around every day. All I have to say is… We love him anyway.

New Skittles Commercials

I used to love Skittles commercials quite a bit. I always used to look forward to a new one, but now they are just a little weird. They aren’t really funny. I am not to fond of them now. I really love their older campaign better. They just seemed far more whimsical, and the the short story the imagery told in those couple of seconds made you want to be there with the characters. I don’t know… What do you think.

Mr. T Snickers Commercial

I absolutely love this commercial. I crack up every time I see it. I grew up with Mr. T, and I have to say this is very nostalgic to me. I love when he chucks the Snickers at his head. This is a fabulous commercial!

PURUS Organic Vodka

I love this product’s package design. I have a fascination with bottle design. Sometimes, I have to admit, I purchase bottles just for the design and typography. I usually enjoy the drink, but I really enjoy examining the designs.
