6090 laser big red

Something big & red is on its way…And no, its not Santa!

Something big & red is on its way…And no, its not Santa! Eeeeekkkk Eeeeeekkkk! Yes that’s all my husband has been hearing for the last week or so! Thankfully I’ve been so busy, I’ve barely had time to think about it, as every time I do I’m ready to burst lol As many of you will know, I have a laser cutter/engraver (amongst various other bits of machinery hehe). Well lets just say it can be quite temperamental, I love it and its worked hard, but boy there have been a lot of moments I’ve wanted to take a hammer […]

Sadness affects us all….

Sadness affects us all…. Its a sad time when we lose loved ones and can be especially difficult for our little ones to understand.   I’m still humbled and honoured when customers ask me to make something for them, when they are in this kind of situation.   In this case it was a treasure chest for a very special little boy who lost his great nanny recently and I am so glad the customer was over the moon with her order.   This is a link to the Facebook post: CLICK HERE   (shared with the customers permission) I hope […]

Classic cars for Dad

Classic Cars for Dad…. Sadly my dad is no longer with us and so I am unable to celebrate father’s day with him, but when i first created this card he was 100% on my mind. He loved his cars both modern and classic and his enthusiasm, is what first got me interested as a young girl. He took great pride in his cars and many an hour was spent ‘tinkering’. This design is – Available HERE but for those Dad’s that aren’t car lovers there are plenty of other designs HERE Whats your Dad’s favourite  past time / hobby? I hope […]

Villa with a view

Villa with a view You may of seen the notice on the website stating orders wouldn’t be processed until today, that was because we went on our first holiday in a long time! We returned Saturday and had a fabulous time, lots of bar-b-q’s, lots of swimming, amazing villa and great family. Here is a glympse at the fabulous view we had all week (taken from the second floor balcony, there were 3 floors! It was a huge villa!) This was our garden/pool area and look at that sea view! However I can’t wait to get creating again (after fulfilling the […]

From weddings to engagements

From weddings to engagements Following on from my last post about stick people getting married, here is a share of a recent make for an engagement. The colours of the heads aren’t the normal colours, but that is the joy of personalising orders, the customer can have any colour or theme heads they would like, sometimes the heads represent favourite characters, sometimes favourite colours and sometimes they are too match someone’s room. The great thing is, it can be any colour The ‘she said yes’ frames are just as popular as the ‘engaged’ frames. Engaged frames – Available HERE I […]

A wedding with a difference!

A wedding with a difference! I have many versions of the stick people with 3D head frames. Engagements, weddings, new babies, new homes and of course full families. Each of the designs can be altered to represent certain people or certain events and my latest wedding frame was no different. The groom character is suited, but without his hat and the bride without veil, has a shorter wedding dress and is sporting cowboy boots. I still love all the variations I get to create of these stick people frames and I love the fact that they are always received so […]

birthday chopping board

What year were you established?

What year were you established? My ‘Est’ (established) chopping boards, first made an appearance as wedding items, with the date denoting the marriage year. They have also been popular as Father’s Day chopping boards, denoting the day someone became a father or just the year they were born. And now they are being lovingly used as birthday gifts, denoting someone’s year of birth. They engrave beautifully, with a great contrast between colours.  I hope you will pop back again soon for my next post, please feel free to sign up for the newsletter using the box in the side bar or […]
