A bit longer than expected…….. Phew its been a bit longer than expected since my last post, but big red has been keeping me busy Lilly (our 4 year old) has also had lots going on at playschool, including sports day and a couple of intake days at her new school! I can’t believe she starts big girl school in September! Although it does mean mummy may not have to work so many 3am nights 😉 I haven’t really got much to share with you at the moment, but if you are a regular to my Facebook page you will […]
Rustic Weddings I love when a customer shares with me, what they have made or used a product for, or if its a gift, what their recipients said and the emotions involved. Its part of what makes working all the long and late hours so worth while! This is one of those shares and I’d like to share it with you (with the customers permission), of a beautiful wedding display! A customer purchased lots of the delicate wooden hearts and this is what they were for! To sprinkle all over her daughters wedding tables. What stunning displays and I’m in […]
Big Red’s HERE!!! A bit later than expected, but I wanted to share some pictures of ‘Big Red’ arriving to his new and rather squished home! I think I underestimated just how big he was! Or i had spectacularly convinced myself that he was smaller and would fit fine! But he fitted, he’s in, OK so he takes up a quarter of my workshop (glorified summerhouse), but he’s there and he’s running and i can just about move around him! lol Our wonderful engineer Howard arrived bright and early at 8.30am and if only I had pictured my husbands face when Howard opened […]

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…. 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…. 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 […]
