Coffee loving has been a journey for me. It began out of what I considered necessity - during some intense study times in Year 12. I thought it would allow me to stay up longer, but it turns out I'm one of those people who caffeine doesn't affect for very long. I can happily drink a cup right before bedtime I quickly found out. Contrary to mainstream I started drinking coffee black and strong with no sugar. I figured it was one of those things that no one actually enjoys when they first have it so why soften the blow?
I succumbed over time to the sweetness of the cappuccino and now it's my choice of caffeine-laced beverages. It's certainly the prettiest! Enjoyable by myself on-the-go or even better - sitting down relaxing for a minute in a cafe with friends. Lately it's quickly becoming almost an essential part of my morning routine at the hospital.
My choice of papers here might not be the obvious - they're from the Midway collection from October Afternoon. At first glance this is a carnival-themed collection, but I chose the combination of cool clinical greys, with the warmth of yellows and oranges because I thought these most closely represented what it's like to sit in a stylish cafe with a cup of coffee in your hands. The overriding brown and white cardstock are just plain obvious now aren't they?
