Sweetwater Volunteers in Africa

A website I designed and built for Sweetwater volunteers, a volunteer project in Africa, has launched! It is the sister website to Geedema, a Gambia holiday website I created at the end of last year. This is the volunteer side of the holiday site and places volunteers in work placements in the local community.

Sweetwater volunteers wanted a website that reflected the grass roots side of the project, and was warm, welcoming, and would entice people to volunteer with them over the larger, more corporate companies. I think we’ve achieved it, this is probably my favourite website I’ve worked on so far!

Ruby Goe – Badman

A nice relaxed song, for a quiet Sunday. Today I’ve been baking lemon butterfly biscuits, working on a website design and listening to Ruby Goe – Badman.

WDH web design shortlisted for award

The WDH website has been shortlisted for a Public Sector Communications award! We’re in the website category.

I work for WDH and I built the responsive framework for the website, and I did a lot of the layout and design work too.

I’m so excited about this, I might even get to go to the award ceremony!

Geek T-Shirts, Zombie Film Festivals, and Helen the Hobbit

I love a good t-shirt, especially if it’s a bit geeky. I also love Dr Who, and Star Wars, so I couldn’t resist this t-shirt from Qwertee. I’ve since bought 3 more from them in different designs, I think I’m a little bit obsessed.

My boyfriend Lee likes to call me the hobbit – because I’m short, not because I have scary feet! So you can imagine his delight when we came across this in Sainsbury’s a couple of months ago..

Lee and I went to visit my friend Guwinneth from The Craft Fantastic┬árecently, and stopped by Collectormania while we we there. We didn’t manage to get any good photos of anything at Collectormania because it was just so busy you could barely breathe.

We went to the big shopping centre in Milton Keynes afterwards, and came across this metal predator statue! If we had the money it would have come home with us.

We also went to the Leeds Zombie film festival again this year. My boyfriend made himself up as a zombie for the day! I know I’m biased, but I think his was the best costume of the day. He scared me good in the morning, jumping out on me as I walked down the stairs!

They had some good films on at the festival this year, I recommend Cockneys vs Zombies for a bit of turn off your brain fun, and Harold’s Going Stiff for a different, slower, and quite moving take on the zombie idea.

 

New rings from Regal Rose, and Hypnotic Topshop nail varnish from the Sisters of the New Moon collection last year.
