Make Ideas Real by Dale Edwin Murray.

Next in my series of interviews with my new market place stall holders, I am pleased to introduce Helen Edwards, the talented lady behind East End Prints. Her little boy is almost exactly the same age as Snarfle and although I have been aware of her for some time (read our introduction, written in 2010) we finally met on the Shoreditch mummy circuit, bonding immediately over our shared histories and careers in design. It's been wonderful to make friends with someone who shares my situation so closely - juggling motherhood with running a business - and I'm very pleased that she will be part of my website relaunch (now due to happen in the New Year).
