so, this is what all the excitement was about...



so over the christmas break in between being ill and having a house full of ill people, i relaxed with my pen and paper (oh, i'm so hi-tec) and designed these mugs...it's very strange seeing something 'flat' and very 2D to suddenly becoming a proper 'thing' - something you can pick up and hold and use. these are my samples, to make sure i'm happy with the colours. and i surely am. i have to say that the turquoise was a little bit deeper in my head, but actually this is a luscious colour. i was also a bit worried the red might be a bit bright, but it's lovely...and you never go wrong with black and white, do you? so once i've signed these off, they'll go into production with some cute little 'summersville' backstamps underneath, ready to be sold in about 6 weeks. how will i wait that long??? i will be wholesaling them in the UK as well as retailing them, so you might see them in a shop near you soon (ish)! ohhhh, exciting!

They're gorgeous. I really like that kind of low-key turquoise.
