What a difference a year makes ...

Rosie and Radish have officially had the busiest year to date. Not only in sales but also behind the scenes.

Between us in the past 12 months we have ... had a wedding, been on honeymoon, moved house, had a baby, had a first birthday party, successfully pitched to Not On The High Street, illustrated 2 children's books, designed a new card range, fulfilled lots of orders, panicked that there were not enough hours in the day and had very little sleep. It has been rather hectic to say the least. But we have survived, and Rosie and Radish is now run by two very sleep deprived mums!

We are both very proud of our little business and hope that amongst the chaos that the next twelve months will bring we will continue to grow and create lots of lovely new cards to make you smile :-)

In the meantime you will have to excuse the matchsticks in our eyes and a few baby brain moments!

Happy 2nd Birthday to us!

Happy birthday to us and a huge big thank you to all of our lovely customers over the past two years!

It has been another fun filled year in Rosie and Radish Land with plenty of highlights ...

We got off to a bang by getting our cards stocked in Fenwick in Newcastle ... a GEORDIE DREAM come true!

We found ourselves in the local press ...

We designed two brand spanking new ranges and introduced Mr Scruff the dog ...

And we went all out by giving Radish the Loud Mouse a VERY LOUD range all of his own!

In January we packed our bags and spirit level and went down to London to exhibit at Top Drawer...

It was such a brilliant show and we came back exhausted but with lots of new customers from up and down the country ...

We spent time developing our new personalised card and print range and now have a lovely little selection in our Etsy shop!

And not a team to do things by halves, on top of all that Helen has been busy growing a baby and I have been getting myself engaged! 

Phweeeee ... the next year is going to be very busy with dirty nappies, wedding planning and Rosie and Radish's next adventures! But for now its time to party in style!

A Top Time At Top Drawer...

It took months of planning, 2 days to set up but after 3 days of trade show craziness, Top Drawer Spring was all over.

Well, what can I say about Rosie & Radish's first Top Drawer experience?! It was hectic, exhausting and so much fun. We loved it!

Freezing at a ridiculously early hour at Central Station!

Despite a very early start at the freezing cold Central Station in Newcastle, we arrived at the London Olympia full of beans and couldn't wait to put our grand plan for our 3m x 1m stand in action.  Even a ripped leather jacket, paint splattered brogues and 2 emergency trips to a paint and DIY shop couldn't keep us down and soon our little stand started to take shape…

A casualty of the show - Helen's beloved leather jacket didn't make it back home in one piece :(

The spirit level was put to good use!

Even though we are relative newcomers to the greetings industry, we are still taken aback by how friendly everyone is and we were very lucky to be placed in the middle of some super talented and lovely folk. There was Yasmin from YTR Designs, Jessica Hogarth, Dandelion, Lucky Lychee, Noi Publishing and Kimono Rabbit.

An arty panoramic shot to show our stand.

First day of the actual show - very excited!
Once the doors opened it, the hours flew by and it was brilliant to meet lots of new stockists aswell as catching up with existing stockists and familiar faces. Our new ranges 'Loud Mouse' and 'Scruff' went down a storm and the 'Daydreamer Numbers' and new additions to the 'Scribbles' range proved popular too. Here's the bestsellers...

If you didn't make it to the show but would like a copy of our new catalogue then just get in touch and we will post one out so you don't miss out ;)

2 days to put up and 2 mints to take down.

It was all too much for little Radish - he slept all they way back to Newcastle!
