dots and spots in print - this time a double page spread!


Back in the beginning of February I received an email asking for some product images for a magazine. I was happy to oblige and thought no more of it, a couple of days later I received another email....



.... asking me if I "would like to be our designer interview for the first issue" You see this magazine is brand new and I was extremely flattered to be asked to be the first interviewee!

Simply Homemade came out onto the shelves on Thursday 24th February.



So over the weekend, after lots of tweets and facebook comments telling me I was in a magazine - I just had to get a copy for myself! I soon found the Gift Ideas page and smiled to myself and continued to look for the interview, expecting it to fill a little corner somewhere.



Well I couldn't have been more wrong - it was a double page spread!!!!!


Although I say so myself, I think it looks great and really does sum up my journey so far with dots and spots.



Thank you very much to Diane and Lindsey for asking me to be part of their first, fabulous edition. It still amazes me sometimes that dots and spots has made it, into the bigger world and that people recognise it, want to tell me they have seen it and actually buy it - I feel very honoured and thankful to you all!
