Post TENT update!

Possibly one of the most stressful weeks of my life is finally over. Its taken a day to recover from LDF and I'm quickly updating the blog with my first exhibition build at Tent. I was sharing my stand with the uber talented Jamie Josef Fry and his wooden and concrete wares (which were a massive hit with retailers, manufacturers and the buying public P.S!) Big thanks to Jamie for doing the man bit of screwing the hanging system up and getting it level. ;)

ALL SET FOR TENT LONDON, London Design Festival 2011!

I'm typing this with my eyes closed and a shaking hand from exhaustion
mixed with too much caffeine :/

Heading off to London on Tuesday for my first exhibition trade show as SurfacePhilia! After 2 months of pretty much 15 hour days and kissing goodbye to any kind of weekend down time... I cant wait to get to Tent London and get this ball rolling (and possibly also regain some kind of normal existance where by I could maybe sit and watch a film,... not drag my dog around the block for a 20mph walk,... answer texts, return friendly calls and generally not look like Uncle Fester) 

So! From Thursday 22nd Sept I will be stood with a fixed smile at Stand No: L06 Hall: T3 Tent London, The Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, as part of London Design Festival. Come and say HI!! And maybe bring me some chocolate and coffee and I will love you forever.
