When round gets too difficult, go square!

The Japanese people are amazing. Finding round watermelons a pain to deal with, a farmer began growing square watermelons - easy to store, easy to cut and just as tasty in the summer heat! Incredible!!

This is far too cute not to share on the eve of a long weekend.
Happy holiday everyone!

Out with the old, in with the new!

Imogen spoke about revamping her fridge and clearing out all of the free magnets she has collected over the years from window cleaners, mechanics, power companies etc, etc.
If anyone else out there wants to do the same, I have put together a magnet round up of some of my favorite magnets to inspire you.

1. Five metallic magnets from Rk
2. Studio Fludd magnets - they aren't actually selling these at the moment, but keep checking back in case they re-stock them. (Failing this, make your own!)
3. Glitter magnets made by me - super fun & super easy.

rainy days

How was your summer break? Wet?
What did you do? Read? Go to the movies?
Seems like that's what most of us here in the design team did. No beach trips for us.
I haven't even had any gelato this summer!

I have put together a compilation of books and movies we in the design team have recently read / watched, and recommend as the rain continues to fall (when will it end?!).

1. Emma's picks: read The Bronze Horseman / watch Tintin
2. Imogen's picks: read Up the Duff. The real guide to pregnancy / watch Source Code
3. My picks: read The Help / watch Breaking Bad (tv series)
4. Teresa's picks: read The Tea Rose / watch The Motorcycle Diaries

Do you have any suggestions for us?
