Please help me win Barclays Take One Small Step competition

I’ve applied for a competition to win £50,000. This will help baffie get going online and support it over the next four years, as I develop the baffie brand anad open a retail outlet in Edinburgh.
I’d be really grateful if you could you show support by backing my idea here:

The video is boring for the first minute, just me wittering on, but it’s worth hanging in there to see some gorgeous products by Cosima Sempill of Kitty and Dude fame, and my great friend and brilliant storyteller, Jessica Wilson. As well as this you will see a guest appearance by craftscotland’s Emma Walker and some lush choonage from Hoochie Fig’s Keith Paton. Big thanks to them.

You should definitely vote if you are a maker as this will allow me to buy more wholesale from the word ‘GO’.

Also, if you are feeling really kind, please share this message with all your twittery facebook type friends.

Many many thanks and…wish me luck!

Bloomin' Wallpaper!

We met up yesterday to work on our Shaker ‘wallpaper’ which is made up of printed chairs, which will appear to be hung on the wall as in the Shaker tradition. We are now working on mixed media interventions to be introduced to the printed chairs by way of incorporating woven, painted and ceramic elements. This is turning out to be another great skills sharing excercise for us, and reinforces the importance of colaborating accross a number of disciplines. This piece has been concieved as an installation work, but we're also now looking towards having a functional version printed. We're hopeful we may even have a lucrative retailer on board to help with the production and distribution of 'Shaker' as a product, but thats all top secret for now I'm afraid. You'll have to keep watching this space to find out where and when you can get hold of your very own roll!

In the meantime, entertain yourselves with this; my first attempt at 'upholstering' one of my chair drawings with a living cushion of flowers.
