Felt, felt, felt....

These are my latest creation, they are so new they are not even on the website yet, they are miniature felt hearts with beading details and contrasting stitching, they are a joy to make but I have had to stop myself...I think thirty is enough! Oh well, at least I am stocked up for the craft fairs, the first of which is in March but I am at that lovely stage where I spend most of my time dreaming up new products. I also love the wooden primitive hearts that I have made. I have suspended them from a wire and I am not sure whether to put anything on these yet - what do you think, maybe a small bow on the wire or some beads? Also, I am trying to keep the colours quite 'calm' (except for the vivid pink!!) are there any colours you think I should be including? I know I need to concentrate more on little boys colours, the tendency is to go more towards the lovely pinks and lilacs. Incidentally the lovely rack was bought at a craft fair, I just loved it and had to have it! Anyway, best sign off - I want to package up my new catnip cushions before tea.....I know how to live eh?

Handmade wooden plaques

I love anything personalised and these handmade wooden plaques are just great. I make them from MDF and then paint them in any colour (Mademoiselle Pink and Moonlight blue shown) and slightly distress them. The letters are painted in an off white and are also given the 'shabby chic' treatment, I then add a butterfly (girls) or a star (boys). This picture doesn't show it but I now add mirror plates for fixing.

My starter for ten....

...well I have finally done it - created my blog! Why? Well, I have got so much information over the years from the internet, I thought it was pay back time plus I am a craft fanatic and run my own small website and I wanted to share my products and hopefully get some (good?) feedback on what I am doing and who knows, maybe I will get to chat to some like-minded people. I hope you like what I do and I would love your comments.
