Hi, I’m Libby, thanks for stopping by. In a nutshell I’m wife to a very supportive husband aka the cyclist. I’m mum to 2 energetic boys, the jolly monkey (12) and the little one (10). I’m a user experience designer, graphic designer with a a love of surface pattern design, art school graduate, web nerd and self professed coffee snob. I reside in Australia’s capital having moved here from Atlanta Georgia and I still get nostalgic for southern USA life – I don’t think the cyclist feels the same.
My blog started in 2007 after falling victim to a swooping bird. I use this space to document what inspires me which will usually have something to do with ux, colour, design, fabric or handmade but will also include designs I’m working on and free downloads and resources. Sometimes I pull out my soapbox for a rant – but not very often. My blog name is an homage to the inexact science of weather prediction, for which I have a strange fascination.
I work as a User Experience Consultant 3 days a week and in my ‘free’ time between hanging out with my little men and studying I also run Crimson Pear my business developing WordPress sites for small businesses and bloggers. Here’s a sample of my work and if you’re interested in having a WordPress site developed visit Crimson Pear and we can chat.
