Believing that we are ‘the average household’ Soap has been bothering me…
The amount of plastic pump dispensers that are thrown away just because we buy liquid soap, just what is wrong with the old fashioned bars of soap? I’d rather not add liquid soap dispenser bottles to our ever growing landfill!

So, its about time more people stopped being all market-lead, instead of liquid soap, buy a bar the cheaper alternative. Save money and be a little greener 🙂

I suppose we could go a step further and buy Eco friendly soap too 😉
I can get down off my soap box now 🙂

Busy head churning over with ideas and thoughts…

I’ve been playing with colour swatches for a while off and on, but recently I’ve been comparing Adobe’s Kuler and the ColourLOVERS site.

Kuler is a pretty cool interface and seems to pick the better colours from an uploaded image first crack.

ColourLOVERS is a fun little site with some cool features that let you save your swatches in different formats for use in different software, a feature that Adobe’s Kuler lacks.

Either way both of these sites are very nice for getting some fresh and interesting colour pallets for your design work. Maybe I’ll upload some swatches here… Kuler Swatches .zip (you must rename the file extension to .zip from .doc)

My first few submissions to JPG magazine, go vote for me 😉


Its about time I got back into the weights, so to ease myself back in I thought I’d buy a set of Dumbbells and a bench and my other half got me the thick rubber matting (which is actually Stable matting), ideal for protecting and leveling out the rough floor in our cellar.
