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 […]

Starwars Jedi high council card

Can you spot the odd Jedi out!

On occasion I still remember to make friends and family cards and this was one of those occasions. It was recently my husbands, long time friends’ birthday and he happens to be a Starwars fan like my hubby. So it just had to be a Starwars card that I made for him. I managed to pull a photo of him from Facebook, but it was quite blurry when it was enlarged! So my original plan to have his head on a Jedi body that pretty much took up the front of the card, was a no no, I had to […]

Playing with paper

Playing with paper…. Well paper clay to be exact! I had a couple of new moulds arrive a few weeks back that I hadn’t got around to trying out, so today i’ve finally had a chance to play….Ermm I mean ‘test’ them for work purposes of course….. I’m super impressed with the details, One featured a cameo and a flower girl style cameo and the other mould features different sized and shaped gem stones, including a jewel set in the most detailed of cases. I really can’t wait to get some colour on these. These were made using Hearty paper clay. I […]
