Next weekend 6th & 7th July is the North East Chilli Festival.  Its an amazing festival of food set in the grounds of a beautiful National Trust Property Seaton Delaval Hall. My biz partner Jane LOVES hot spicy food - and we are proud to say we are one of the few NON food producing businesses attending.  We NEVER do fares as we are primarily a wholesale business supplying shops, so this is very exciting for us.  I have done a North East Chilli Tea Towel in honor - its written in Geordie too!

Run Rabbit Run!

My 11 year old son loves Banksy.  He then got a project from school to do a piece of art in the style of an artist from the last century.  Here's his montage - I love it and would've been proud of this myself.  He doesn't like drawing but is great with computers so I've been helping him to learn photoshop - I have to say I think he's better at it than me now!

Royal Princess Naming Ceremony WOOHOO!!

Soooooo yesterday 13th June - I was VERY lucky to go to the naming of the new cruise ship ROYAL PRINCESS which was named by the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate - Prince William's wife).  IT WAS SHAMMMAZZZZZINNNNGGGG!! Still on a high but need to get back to work at some point.  I could quite easily get used to swanning around in a posh dress drinking champers!

Bad Fettle??

Aaaahhhhh got loads of stuff going on like a new kitchen range which keeps being resampled as the colours are never quite right and 80 billion Christmas cards (I do tend to exaggerate when I'm stressed).  AND on top of that a Banksy project I'm doing with my son - apparently I would be a much trendier mother if I was spray painting walls instead of providing roof and walls being a designer.  I'm not in bad fettle but I REALLY need to get back to no swearing as I keep slipping the occasional bad word..........

Geordie Mugs at North East Chilli Festival

Been drawing lots of food stuff lately and kitchen type things too.  Got a new product line on the go - this is a snippet of a tea towel which will be available to buy at the North East Chilli Festival - taking place at the beautiful Seaton Delaval Hall on 6th and 7th July.  We don't as a company do fairs but this one is very special - it attracts thousands of visitors and we are lucky enough to be one of the only a non food companies at this event.
