It’s the 1st of March, so we can finally say that Spring is here!! I’ve loved seeing the first signs; the daffodils, chrocuses and snowdrops popping up all over the place. We got out into the sunshine and did a lovely walk in the Shropshire hills at the weekend. A big three hour hill walk and we were so lucky to see wild horses too; they were stunning!

I’ve been busy designing new products over the past few weeks and have finally put my order in for a few samples to be made; a single t towel, a tote bag and some coasters, all with my Funky Kitchen designs on them! I’m so excited and nervous to see them. It takes forever to get new products made up and it always ends up being quite a stressful process. Not long now though!
I’ve also been busy applying and participating in local Artisan markets. I’ve done a few and am really noticing how much the Brits love a bit of designer and handmade, it’s great! My cards have been flying out and lots of my screen printed t towels and toiletry bags have been being bought for Mothers Day gifts!
