Pressing pause

I want to let you know that I have suspended the retail and trade websites for the next few months and re-opening in September. I have run the business for 8 years and mostly I’ve designed quickly and in response to customer demands and trends. I want to create new designs and develop ideas, however, in order to do this slowly and in the detail I would like, I need to have time away from the day-to-day running of the business. It’s been an exciting 8 years and rewarding in ways that I would never have thought possible. I’m hugely...

PG Live 7-8th June

In a slightly mad moment on Christmas Eve last year, I booked a stand at PG Live a trade show dedicated to greeting cards and stationery. This is my first trade show for 7 years - slightly daunting to say the least! Then in January I started the re-design of all the existing designs and a design of new work all of which I’m taking to PG Live. Now I’m on a completely insane marathon to finish everything as we set up on the 5th June and the show is on the 7-8th June. I create all my work by...

Decorative Living Fair

After a two-year break, the Decorative Living Fair @decorativelivingfair is back at Eridge Park; Friday 13th - Saturday 14th May 2022.

I am joining around 60 exhibitors with inspiring displays of decorative antiques, artisan clothes, jewellery, bags, new homewares and plants. There is...

New designs

What began in January as a plan to design a few new cards, turned into an epic scrapping of every card and starting again. Since taking on a neglected allotment, I have felt the connection to the natural world and the gentle call of the wild which has made its way into my work. And just to help things along, I re-read ‘A Secret Garden’ and felt the magic of an overgrown garden flowing through my veins. I feel now I’m on my true path with my work and very enjoyable it is too 🍃

Happy New Year!

Firstly, let me wish you all a very Happy, Peaceful and Safe New Year. I do hope 2022 brings all that you wish for. As a thank you for all the support you have given me and my small business during 2021, I thought I'd kick start 2022 with a Spring clean and January sale! I'm clearing the decks to make way for new designs. I'm aiming to have all the new designs launched by April 2022. In the meantime, keep safe, keep well and take care x
