What I did in my studio on Friday: After I carved a blank face lino (@janefosterdesigns gave me the idea with the simple faces she was drawing), I printed it in a tiled pattern, then filled in the faces with a pen. It's way too aimless and fun to be called work... which is exactly the point of my #makingfriday practice.

When you run a creative biz, it's important to make sure that sometimes the creative part has to be given more space than the business side, cos the inventive cogs get clogged up when the things you make are always purpose- or deadline-driven. That's what I find, anyway. How about you?What do you think?

Today's the last day this year to get in your order of custom-made Skinny chairs, so here's a pic from Claudia, one of our #skinnylaminxfans, for last-minute inspiration!

Since 2015, we've run a HAPPYTHANKS giveaway in November, mashing up American Thanksgiving and my birthday into an opportunity for us to say thanks to you for all your support, cos we couldn't do this without you!
.
.
This year, we've gone a step further, acknowledging the broader Africa-based entrepreneurial community that we are part of, who we couldn't do without either! Which is why this year we have 10 brands over 20 days, making a spectacular new HAPPYTHANKS giveaway every two days! .
.
Check in tomorrow for the first HAPPYTHANKS giveaway. I am not exaggerating when I mention... diamondzzz....!!!

It's ridiculous. I can't decide whether I prefer our new Skinny-branded pencils or our new Pen Bags. The good news is, you don't have to choose, cos you get a free pencil when you buy a Pen Bag. #nocoinflipping #winwin #nobrainer.

Are you coming to my bloke's talk tonight? @_paul_edmunds is speaking on the theme of "Craft", along with architect Michael Louw at 6pm, Wed 7 Nov, at the TH Barry Theatre at the National Museum. Ticket sales via @sangfriends, and proceeds support the work of the National Gallery.

Can a day get better when it kicks off with @kirsten___goss sending pics of her spectacularly graphic jewellery store at the Silo, freshly-adorned with custom-made Skinny laMinx Colour Pop pillows atop an ottoman by @the_new_modernist, and alongside hats by @therealcrystalbirch? #notreallyaquestion

We love our #friendsandneighbours in #capetown at the #silodistrict and #everywhereactually.

This view of The Mount Nelson Hotel, just around the corner from our apartment (I can see our sitting room window!), has me feeling like someone living in a Wes Anderson-style resort town.
