About Me and Design Rocks!

My photo
Hello and welcome. Here's a bit about me: I've spent my childhood and a lot of my life traveling. Places, colour and pattern are my biggest inspiration. I've surfed & lived in a tent in Cornwall. Sketched my way round Morocco. Designed from an antique textile archive in Manhattan (dream job!). Styled and written for an interiors magazine on the sleepy island of Malta. Now I live in Manchester, UK, where I run Design Rocks greetings cards. Whilst in Manhattan I amassed a large collection of vintage textiles. These were used as inspiration for my first card range, Vintage Rocks! We sell wholesale so if you'd like a brochure visit the website or get in touch. Thanks for stopping by.

craft underway

Here we are doing our 'air dry clay' evening, all washed down with tea, and wine strangely. It did occur to me that I'll have to be careful what images I post or you'll all know what you're getting for crimbo!

We cut or modelled flat cookie cutter shapes to make ornaments for our nearest and dearest to hang on their trees. This week we're going to have a bash at painting them. I've also been busy sewing up some pressi's too. But again, Mum's the word!

Big bub was a creative tour de force with her ideas, she brainstormed 20 ideas straight off the top of her head! She's also been busy making things for people.
