As it was the festival of Eid-ul-Adha last Friday, I tried to put my artistic talent to good use and...... this is the result!!
My two daughters Zainab and Aneesa were very pleased the next morning when they washed off their henna and unveiled their brightly coloured patterns to me, which so happen to match their pretty outfits !!
Hope everybody out there celebrating Eid had a good one too.

This weekend I got to enjoy a girly weekend in the west end off London. I managed to squeeze in quite a bit of shopping, some very lovely food and also got to watch one of my all time favourite plays, Breakfast at Tiffany's which is showing at the Haymarket Theatre until January.The show was very enthralling and I absolutely adored Anna's stunning cocktail dressess.

Shazeel's Ameen Card
Recently I was asked to design and create a special invitation package for a boys Ameen party. The colour scheme requested was a mid-nightish blue. I had just a weekend to complete 400 invitations of Ameen cards and a table plan (that went horribly wrong half way through!) As you can see from these images, there was not an empty surface in my office and dining room all weekend, just lots and lots of glue everywhere!

I could not resist taking photos of these gorgeous flowers that my husband Zahir gave to me today on our thirteenth wedding anniversary. I absolutely love the way the colours and textures in the gerberas and roses have come out in these shots and am feeling quite experimental with the camera. More photos will follow....Watch this space!
Happy Anniversary Zahir xx

I was up in Manchester last week, where I enjoyed a lovely little break at Mums. On my return I was delighted to discover that our new range of printed cards has made an appearance in the 'Spotlight' of the GREETINGS TODAY magazine, which runs features on new and innovative new design releases. I met up with the editor of Greetings Today Lewis Eckett at The Home & Gift show last month who asked if I could send him some images of the Precious Pearls range featured above. This is SABAH DESIGNS foray into printed cards with 12 very girly birthday designs and 9 christmas designs.

My Teeny Tiny Stand!!
Sabah Design Cards selected for table display in the cafe area.
I got back from the Harrogate show on Thursday and boy what a show its been! Although the drive up to Harrogate, preparing, building and setting the stand was quite exhausting, the show itself has bought some extremely good business my way. Thank You all so very much for visiting, enquiring and ordering at the show. I met some very interesting people, made some lovely friends and took some much hoped for orders!
Our two new printed ranges Precious Pearls & Precious Pearls for Christmas (which I was very stressed about ) did really well. Lots of distributor and agent offers ........So it's all good stuff for now!

Yesterday I was kindly invited to the much awaited book launch of Design Leicestershire in which Sabah Designs has a company profile inclusion! Design Leicestershire is a beautiful assemblage of design and architectural practices based in Leicestershire and Rutland. The book looks remarkable and I for one was utterly amazed by the exceptional talent within the Leicestershire design network. Oh! and the Canape's were great too!
