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.

Why are accounts such a 'mare??

What is it about accounts and creative people? I used to be so organised with my accounts but now it seems it's the first thing to be dropped when I get busy then I get in a pickle.

You may remember me mocking my husband as he ironed his receipts in the garden to radio four last summer after retrieving them from his filing system of the car floor. At least he got them in on time!

My new tax year resolution has been to find a lovely lady called Deidre to keep my books for me so I need never have to pay a fine or hunt for receipts again. I hate feeling disorganised and with baby no3 in the mix there would have been no hope & probably a spell in prison courtesy of Inland Revenue!
