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.

happy Easter Bunny

I'm such a happy bunny!! I had the best Easter holiday of my life. Gorgeous blue skies, sandcastles, bbq's on the beach & a blinking 'hot stone massage' in a lush spa - look at me getting above my station!!!

I totally annoyed everybody by snapping at everything i saw, all that sunshine got me in a photography mood.

I feel on top of the world at the moment, I feel like I've been struggling on for an eternity and now my life seems to have clicked into a lovely place.

Sorry, I think I just had a little 'moment' there, I'm a big soppy softie that's just full of the joys of spring. Maybe blogging is good for your health in that it makes you appreciate the little details of life.

The only neg was the sodding dog tried to attack a little spring lamb - poor lamby. It was ok but I nearly had an angry farmer with a blunderbuss after me.

definitely. I had 2 convo's with friends today who are totally stressed out and who's jobs consume their whole lives. I just think for what??? I can take 2 hrs round the park with the dog and the baby, have a cup of tea in the garden, stop and smell the blossom, chat to an elderly neighbour and feel happy and chilled all the time. I'm not the most materialistically well off person (in fact i'm well povo!) but I don't care my life is rich and I'm happier than anyone I know!

raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar, exactly!! you can't put a price on head space!! people are terrified of losing their identities that are tied so completely with their jobs. We are the 'povo' friends too! People think we are crazy for not having a double income, big car and a house....but we have sooooooo much quality to our lives! xx
