Sainsburys Mug design

Hi Guys I was looking through some magazines the other day and found one of my designs that I did for Sainsburys last year. It was in Aprils addition of Ideal Magazine. Its nice when your design is in a magazine- alas the designers name is never on it. Anyway it was nice to see.

In the August issue of  GOOD HOMES my Tropical design appeared again both in the cushion and in the melamine plates on the lefthand page. I think this design is a best seller!!

We met some nice people and fellow exhibitors which I will be writing about in the next few weeks.Here are some pictures from the show.
  the space was small but we made it work. The first picture is arriving at our space.

Here is caroline setting up we started putting up the frames. Note the Wake up and Smell the Curry teatowel.
