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.

sexy sausages

We couldn't possibly turn down a free dinner at the new bar Electrik. They've just started doing sausages - just sausages but damn fine ones!

Jay's company: City Life Electrical, just did the lighting and electrics throughout. Nice project! We admired his fine work over our sumptuous sausages.

It did mean missing out on a bit of crafting at the Manchester Craft Mafia night at The Manchester Craft Centre. There's always next month!
