Pulse London

Today is the start of Pulse London- a trade show with lots of lovely card and craft people and companies exhibiting- many of them for the first time!

Pulse describes itself as:

“Pulse offers you the right mix this summer, delivering a perfect blend of new designers and trusted favourites to suit your buying needs – at the UK’s only summer trade event. Pulse’s unique summer buying time allows you to source and buy what your customers want right now, in the season, as well as your long orders for the rest of the year.

At Pulse, you can find unique and original items from the UK’s leading young designers within Launchpad. Spot the latest innovative products and cutting edge designs from 160 of the latest talents, all exclusive to Pulse.”

I was hoping to visit but unfortunately I just don’t have time at the moment (busy planning The Fairy Tale Fair), I am planning on visiting next year and hopefully exhibiting one day!

Good luck to those exhibiting!

Makers Boutique

Well the Makers Boutique is over for this month and it was certainly a busy one! The food festival in New Road helped bring in the crowds and the rain stayed way-hoorah! Thanks to those who came, there were some lovely things from lovely local people! Pics will be up soon, so keep a look out! Hope you all have a Happy Easter!

New Card Stockist!

I have had an order for my ‘Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside’ Brighton card range from the io Gallery, in Brighton’s lanes! The gallery ordered a few of my cards for Christmas but now will be stocking a bigger range of my cards! The io Gallery is a wonderful gallery of local artists work and is well respected within Brighton. This is how they describe themselves on their website:

‘Established in 1997 io Gallery represents artists across a wide spectrum of practice This is reflected by the eclectic range of art & craft shown. Majority of which is produced by local Brighton artisans.’

 Look out for my new range in the gallery from this weekend!
