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.

Keeping your accounts in order...

...is very important. For all of you guys who are rubbish with the whole numbers/tax/receipts thing. I wanted to share my husband's system with you...

1. Keep all your receipts on the car floor/glove box (handy for the kids to draw on and rip up on long journeys)

2. Collect up and put in a shopper:


3. Now you're ready to iron. If it's a nice day you can do it in the garden.



4. Now call your accountant with an undertone of panic in your voice.

There. Never feel bad again - If any of you are worse than this I want to hear about it??!!

Haha. I have various piles of receipts in my husbands office. I now have about a fortnight to get mine sorted. Joy!

actually - i'm fessing up to being just as bad. I follow your drawer thing, only I keep mine in my purse until I can't shut it - then it's transferred to the big tin of doom!

I have just done my 'ironing' and no matter how much investigating I do I can't find out why I paid 81.50 in cash into my bank account on 9th May. Any creative ideas?
