Royal Fever Spreads

One of the reasons I've been a little quiet recently has been
the build up to the Royal Wedding taking place tomorrow.
With 500 Royal tea towels sold and stock completely
diminished I might even be able to sit with my crumpet and
cup of tea tomorrow to watch it.
A cool website called Daily Grommet has featured me for
24 hours and here's a peek at their lovely video.

Due to the incredible popularity of my Royal Wedding
tea towel, I have introduced a new color combination.
Head over here to purchase one.


Thankfully the winner is picked completely at random
because my job would have been so hard otherwise.
The details some of you went in to about your favorite
notebooks and the meaning they have was truly touching.
I wish I could send each and every one of you
a book.

West Elm and Terrain

As you know last week was pretty full for me
preparing for 2 large events and not to mention
shipping hundreds (literally) of Royal Wedding tea towels.
I also squeezed in an editorial illustration for Healthy Cooking
Magazine and will reveal this later.

Thursday night at West Elm was wonderful; a combination of
great people, funky music, flowing wine and truffles.
My line was received with so much warmth and appreciation so
I thank everyone for coming out.

Then on Friday I packed my bags and went to Philadelphia to catch up with

a friend I haven't seen in months. The following day we went to Terrain for
Brooklyn Day, a celebration of designers and foodies from my home borough.

I've been dying to visit Terrain ever since they started selling my
tea towels last Spring and the beauty of the place really caught my breath.

I was holding a stenciling workshop and had such a great experience
meeting a group of women who got stuck right in and experimented
with all sorts of techniques. We rummaged through the garbage and
found flower and leaf cuttings that became stamps.
They all walked away with their very own hand printed tea towels.
