They are deluxe, smooth…

Be still….

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Went to the office today for a design meeting with Lovely Lucy and Lisa. Great session. I love working with two such creative, switched on, easy going women. Nothing is too much trouble, and they always see what I see. We are definitely cut from the same cloth when it comes to design! It was Mel’s work we were getting to grips with. Always such magnificent and original art. More will be revealed. And…
