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.

Folk House a success!

Yippee yippee! The sun was shining, people were mooching and the cards were selling. The folk house flea market fundraiser was a great success! The sales were nice and steady (no rugby scrum like last week!) and I sold about 200 (wooohoo!)

OH MY GOD, I could actually earn a living from this!!!!!

The fair was lovely, 40's jazz playing, loads of vintage frocks and hand made things - high quality bric-a-brac (mmmm I love a good rummage)

There were also some gorgous things for sale (ahem, I spent quite a lot of my profit).
