Handmade Christmas cards now on Etsy

Today is the beginning of November, and you know what that means? The countdown to Christmas can officially begin! (Albeit still a wee bit early…) That’s right, there’s only 53 days till Christmas – and when you include all the days when you might be working, socialising, and those general c-b-a days, that doesn’t leave you very long for your christmas preparations. To make life a little bit easier I have designed and created my very own selection of hand-made Christmas cards that are now available to buy on my Etsy shop. You can get yourself a variety pack of 6 Christmas cards here, or perhaps just the one card for that someone special. Either way, these bespoke and original hand-made cards are the perfect way to wish loved ones a happy holiday.

Check out all the cards here.

Exeter College Oxford as seen in Marvel’s Dr Strange

Exeter College Oxford as seen in Marvel’s Dr Strange

When I was back in Oxford, around January time, there were rumours flying everywhere that the Benedict Cumberbatch was to grace his presence at Exeter College filming for a new movie. Whilst it turned out that the whispers of Cumberbatch’s appearance were false, Exeter College chapel did turn out to be a filming location for a movie that he was in: Marvel’s Dr Strange. I went to see the new Dr Strange movie last night, and it was so cool seeing Exeter College chapel in the middle of the film with Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen. The movie reminds me a lot like Inception with its kaleidoscopic scenes and manipulated cityscapes, and the same happens to the interior of Exeter College chapel. Here are a few of my favourite photos that I’ve taken in the chapel, alongside with the screenshots from the Dr Strange film – I would definitely recommend seeing it. Yay for Oxford University being used in Hollywood blockbuster films!
