New Designers 2012.




Its been 4 or 5 years since I last visited ND, I used to go for the 2 publishers I worked for looking for new talent. I remember the belly nerves when I did the show myself back in 1998 with Staffordshire Uni too.
I decided to look this time for my top 5 designers who really stood out to me for different reasons and here they are in no particular order, well done everyone for their hard work :)
1. Marie Parry. Loved her colour palette and birds.
2. Lisa Martin. Totally sorted, she will do well.
3.Sylvie McGowan. beautiful colours, patterns and stand.
4. Louisa Heyworth. Wicked, FAB colours, LOVE the neon!
5. Ingrid Hudson. Bold, ballsy prints, really cool.

London Fun.

I had the best time at the weekend, was really fab to see all my old friends and here about what is going on with them, we went out in Brick Lane, saw burlesque, danced and that included my 3 pregnant friends, ate some delicious food at caravan in Farringdon and visited Spitalfields for a mooch, I haven't been for ages so was cool to see how it has moved on since last time.
It was there I got chatting to the very lovely Anna Wiscombe and I could not resist one of her handmade cloud blackboards, just too cute to see more of annas work visit her over at

Olive update.

The lovely Lizzie over at The Pea Pod asked how Olive is doing and the answer is GROWING lots and getting to grips with talking, its fab, in my book her first word was definitely 'hallo' and she says nose, eyes, hair, and lots of other things esp RAA RAA as she is obsessed with raa raa the lion!
Here she is with troys noddy that she has adopted and now takes everywhere, happy Thursdays :)

canvas update...

 my canvas has told me what I think I already knew which is that painting does not always come easy for me, not entirely sure where this one is going...there is a possibility that I may well paint over it and start over...gonna sleep on it and tomorrow am off up to London to visit Pulse.

Work in Prog...

 I got a lovely chunk of time on Saturday to begin my canvas here is a peek at it so far, I also got a new phone so am now able to take fancy photos like this one with Instagram, am intending on having a nice quiet day working on it again today, feels so good to be off the comp :)

Wow I am sooooooo tired and still soooooo much to do in the way of preparation for Pulse (fingers crossed I can get a space!) AND we have decided to get back on the wedding train so have to plan that for next year also!! It can be done, it can be done...
so I am going to take a break from the computer screen for a bit which seems alien to me these days and get a bit more hands on and paint a canvas, its been a while so watch this space...
Hope you are all having a fab weekend so far x
