It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and i got a rather fantastic array of extremely original presents that i felt needed to be shared!

So i know flowers might not seem very original but Ive never had any before! (given to me by the people at work, because yes i have a job now!)

This terrible photo doesnt do justice to this epic (and MARBLE may i add!) birthday cake made by my excellent flatmate Lydia.

I also received a mystery tshirt from the Hipstery (which i havent yet photographed) along with a box of stuff:

Jen made me a very fetching mixtape in a fabulous hand knitted case!

AMAZING woodblock Decemberists print from the Tugboat print shop.

Four of these cake pops were sent to me by Emma who bakes awesome unique things! Have a look at what she has for sale here!

^^ And finally I made this Ponyo badge for my matey Ross whose birthday is the day before mine, I rediscovered my badgemaker so i’m thinking there will be many more of these made in the near future!
