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.

Merry Christmas and Countdown to Top Drawer

Phew! It's been a long old slog getting everything ready for Top Drawer Spring but I'm on the home run and looking forward to the show. My new cards and ranges are ready, more importantly, I'm ready! After too much turkey and xmas movies I'm ready to kick start the biz in the New Year and meet lots of lovely new retailers I can lavish my attention on.

New plans for next year will include a new website, more new products and ranges and lots more, I'm really excited about my business plans. And for those of you who don't know yet, baby number 3 will be coming along in June. It will certainly be an eventful and busy year but my legendry energy and enthusiasm should see me through!

I'd like to wish all my wonderful customers a very happy Christmas and a fun filled New Year. Lets get this show on the road!

Thank you! Not sure about the smooth running of house/kids/biz, sometimes it feels like spinning plates. 'Tis my only ambition to have the whole lot running in harmony - then I'll be truly zen like. Is real life like that?? Not for me!
