One of the joys of having your own business is finding great people to work with, whether it be stockists you are thrilled to be on the shelves of or people who make your products shine. I had the pleasure of being on my first photoshoot with the lovely Fanni Williams recently, and am so pleased with the results I could burst! Thanks Fanni!
Lovely to meet everyone at Top Drawer! Thanks for stopping by!
I've really been loving getting back into photography again having taken a course with Emily Quinton. It's really addictive! Check out my Twitter and Instagram (click on the icons at the bottom of the page) for all the latest photos!

Very excited to now be stocked in the gorgeous new stationery department at Harrods! My little guy is on summer holidays, so we went to check out Harrods together. He was so excited when he spotted "Mamma's cards!"
So thrilled with the photos from my first photoshoot. A few are on the home page. More to come! Thank you Fanni Williams
Had some fun baking bread with the little guy.
Had pancakes with chocolate sauce served to me for breakfast and off to the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park this afternoon, so a good Mother's Day all around. Wishing all the fab Mums and Moms out there a great day!
Back from Spring Fair in Birmingham - with new customers, international distributors and best of all new friends!

We were lucky enough to have a few days staying with friends and family in Paris last weekend. Here are a few of the places we went: 1. Luxembourg Gardens - great for resting up after shopping, or going to the playground or boat pond with kids (own photo) 2. Merci shop - my first visit there - and it was love at first sight - lots of favourite items...
Had the nicest surprise today. I was taking my little boy to the Tate Modern for a little wander when we turned the corner to go in, and got caught in the flashbulbs of a big group of paparazzi. Once we made it through the crowd and into the gallery, I realized it was a London Fashion Week event, and not just that, the Topshop Fashion Show! And when...
We're moving! I'm very excited, as the tiny closet in the photo above along with my kitchen table has been my office since the company started last year, and I am about to have an actual office space! See the about tab for our new address.
Lovely to meet you all at Top Drawer. And thank you to all my wonderful new stockists.
I look forward to working with you.
Very excited to be doing my first trade show with Scissor Monkeys!
Come by and see me at stand E11!
Having fun packing up a big Valentine's Day order.
Riding out the storm in London, enjoying introducing my little one to some favourite Christmas movies from my childhood. Happy Holidays!
I'm really enjoying some blog posts on life with kids and the work/life juggle
We picked out our Xmas tree last weekend at the lovely Borough Market. Best place in London to get a tree!
Just had my first ever sighting of my cards in a shop! (Note to self - must become better photographer!)
