Introducing...Amanda Artworks

Well, all work and no play would make Rosie & Radish a very dull duo and this was our mantra for Progressive Greetings Live this year. We loved the social side of the show and met some truly inspiring and lovely greeting card folk!

We were very lucky to have the delightful Amanda Hemmer on the stand next door to ours. Amanda creates cards from her original artworks which are inspired by vintage films and Latin Culture. Her cards and prints are beautifully vibrant, a riot of colour and texture (seriously the pictures don't do them justice).

Super stylish pair: Amanda and her other half - the charming John!

Wooly Blue

We were chuffed to bits when one of our favourite North East gift shops, Wooly Blue, contacted us to buy some of our cards. The lovely Karen from Wooly Blue in Jesmond, took over the shop at the end of last year and has been a busy bee buying new stock and getting the shop looking tip top!

Wooly Blue is part of a lovely strip of shops on Brentwood Avenue in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Our cards now sit pride of place in a newly opened back room of the shop which is dedicated to children. 

Our little Clever Clogs has also managed to find his way into the Congratulations section of the shop ...

And Together Forever is right at home nestled amongst the lovey dovey wedding cards!

The shop has a wonderful selection of cards (aside from ours!) and is full of goodies and gifts for people of all ages. Here are a few of our favourite finds ...

We love these typography inspired bags from Alphabet Bags

These pencil cases from Caroline Gardner will definitely brighten your day. 

They are bright, colourful and gorgeously soft. These blankets from Avoco are right up our street!

We LOVE Newcastle!

And we also love the greeting cards from Lynda loves especially this one ...

If you live near Jesmond get yourself along to Wooly Blue to check out their wonderful cards and gifts.  The super friendly staff will look after you and with so many lovely things to buy we're sure you won't leave empty handed!

Love Amy Xx
