Homes and Gifts

This week I have been at the Homes and Gifts show in Harrogate. I always love this little show as it's an easy trip for me and I always meet such lovely buyers and exhibitors. With the help of Andrew we managed to create a lovely little haven.  I have been gradually collecting scrabble shelves and old wooden School stationery and I am beginning to have quite a collection. It seems to be a bit of a brand direction for Dear Prudence (a genuine accident)

I made lots of great contacts again and got a few pieces of illustration work too. So I am pretty happy. Going to keep a low profile at shows now till next June as I am going to be launching the Dear Prudence stationery line at Pulse!

Dear Pudence in Munich

What a week! Dear Prudence has just had a show in Munich 'Trendset' I was lucky enough to have Brevi Manu (who also distributes Dear prudence to the German market) showcase DP with a few of my favourite stationery companies like O check Graphics, Gongjang and Green design works. It was a fantastic show and I can now safely say that Dear Prudence is right at home in Germany! Andrew and I will hopefully be taking a trip there very soon to catch some inspiration. More news to follow soon.

Well it has been a very busy June for me. Pulse was a great success and I have only just finished dispatching the back log of orders. I was getting a bit worried as they were mounting up fast in my studio and I had very little room to move! Phew! I can't get too relaxed though as I have the Home and Gifts show in a couple of weeks.
In the mean time I thought I would share a little bit of press that Dear Prudence has in this months Homes and Antiques. Lovely!!
