Thank you Angela Nickeas for the Liebster award

A sunny image to go with my mood today - thanks so much to Angela Nickeas for passing on the Liebster Blog Award.  I'm in such great company with other designers I don't actually know personally but definately know and respect their work.  Eeeh I'm touched (said in a Geordie accent).
Keeping things Geordie - yesterday we did a sneak peak of our new Blaydon Races 150 anniversary mug. Blaydon races is a race event which took place 9th June 1862 - theres a very famous song which you will all know if you hear it "ooohhh me lads you should've seen us gannin". Anyway twitter went mad - we were inundated with requests for this mug so had to quickly put it on our website and take pre-orders!! It was like being a celeb......  then I get the Liebster award from Angela..... think I'd best get me roots done just incase Jonathan Ross calls!

Whos your Bezzie Mate??

Heres the latest design for the Scouse Stuff range which I think says it all!  Its also on a mug (which looks lush) so looking forward to getting them out into stores.  We have just had quite a bit of interest in the Scouse Stuff range got a big retailer interested....... as usual I'm sworn to secrecy til its all signed sealed and delivered.  Blimey this design business is a bit cloak and dagger sometimes!

Theres light at the end of the tunnel........ at last

Well we've sorted out our printer issues and now have an amazing big print company to do all our work.  We have got our first range of giftwrap being printed next week.  Its been a really hard few weeks for us and we've gone from being a small business into the big league - this means however having to make lots of decisions about business which takes me away from being a designer. Did manage to get this one in this week - Divvin Gan (means don't go in strange Northumbrian Dialect).
We've are going to print 80,000 cards this year so it does show how much we've grown.  Not bad for two lasses from Newcastle and a business thats a year old!  Who knows Rodney this time next year.....
