Merry Christmas

And so that's a wrap for the year, and this is my chosen festive Christmas image, albeit a little creepy! Thank you to all of our readers for checking in with us through the year: in our blog's first year we have picked up quite a number of followers. Boheem is back on January 10th, so we'll ensure to have lots of new, interesting and inspiring things to share then. Hope you have a lovely holiday and some special time with loved ones.

Gingerbread House extravaganza!

The Boheem Team enjoyed a fun Christmas activity on Thursday last week. Using supplied gingerbread house kits, we each made our own little candy home. The studio looked like Santa's workshop – we were floor to ceiling lollies, icing, and all things colourful and sweet!

The Lowercase

Friends of Boheem recently launched a lovely online store called The Lowercase. Featuring beautifully designed children's bed linen, contemporary artwork, tableware and many more little treats. Their whimsical site is definitely worth a look and for all those in need of some last minute Christmas shopping they have a 25% off sale this week. Hooray!

Hennie Haworth

Just delightful. Hennie Haworth has nailed the ability to allow her imagination to run wild and free. Check out more of this very talented illustrator's work at www.henniehaworth.co.uk

The Sketchbook Project

This year, Boheem is participating in the Arthouse Co-op's Sketchbook Project. It's a basically a massive, global collaborative artistic event whereby artists and designers from all over take a Moleskin Journal, fill it with stuff and then release it to tour around the US and then end up in the Brooklyn Art Library. Our journal's theme is "Secret Codes", and so far the team have come up with some really lovely, playful (as well as clever and conceptual) compositions. The books will be available to view online after the tour finishes.

Kenzo Christmas

I don't know who Kenzo are, but I sure like this Christmas promotion created for them a couple of years back by the Cosfibel Group.

UnitingWorld Everything in Common Catalogue 2010

We recently completed the UnitingWorld Everything in Common Catalogue and all of its associated material. The campaign features a range of overseas aid projects you can choose from, the idea being that you can sponsor a project as a 'gift' to a loved one. This year we went with a newsprint as a recurring background pattern as a reference to the way newspaper is used as warmth for some and as a source of information and awareness for others. If you're stuck for Christmas gift ideas this month, head to the Everything in Common website and buy a gift with a difference... to make a difference. You'll be sent a card with a description of your nominated project.
