The cold COLD winter

A couple of weeks ago I took a step out into what seemed to be the coldest of all days.. but for a very exciting reason. A market stall!! Yes a market stall, may sound dull (and I'll be honest, there were points where I would have rather been anywhere but in that freezing cold), but it was a very exciting day for me - plus I had a pretty hunky Santa keeping me company. It was the first time I have ever put any of my stuff up for grabs - in the flesh. It was frightening, but so much fun! And to top it off - it was a success! But to be honest I was as happy with the pausing of a passer by to look, and to hear kind words as people pondered around, as I was with a sale. All in all it's given me an ever greater passion for the simple thing I try my best to do - make things pretty!

The BIG Project - Ben & Jodie's Wedding

I've been quite quiet on here for some time now.. so I thought I'd show you why! Last weekend dear friends of mine, Ben and Jodie, got married and I had they joy of creating all these for their special day. There were boards, signs, place tags, table numbers, table plans, and even a little postbox for the happy couple. It was an absolute pleasure to create all these little touches and very rewarding to see it all come together at the end. How I love doing work for weddings! If you like what you see and are in need/know someone in need of something similar (not just for weddings) then please do get in touch, I'm always happy to create bespoke work for individuals (in fact, its always more fun). 
- I'm always happy to receive any interest/comments/suggestions.. so please comment away! Hope you all enjoy..

Fun Animal Photography Competition

Although I can neither claim the photographic skills or the wit responsible for these (absolutely all my hilarious parents), I thought I'd share this entry with you all.
Rio (the doberman dog) and Lola (the cute lionhead rabbit) were wondering if they could be bridesmaids at the wedding, what do you think?

Returning with a garden sign

I've been lacking in posts pretty recently - busy summers leave little spare time. But I thought I'd return with a picture of something I made for my mum's Birthday, something she's been angling after for some time.. a garden sign. I can conclude that pyrography is a very lengthy process! All worth it though from the look on her face. Hope you like :)

Furthermore.. I had another commission during the holidays. A picture to be given as a gift to a little girl at her christening - from her godmummy :)

Lu-bug's Nursery

I did some pictures for my Goddaughter's (still makes me smile to say that) nursery a while back. Her mummy and daddy wanted something that was fun enough to go in a nursery, but cool enough to go around the house when Lu- bug grows up. So here's what I came up with - I prayed that God would use the bible verses in each of them as reminders of who He is, and through that their love for him would grow.

I wondered whether they were something that there might be a market for - There's not a huge amount of cool christian stuff to put on your walls out there, so I thought why not make some. I've recently taken another commission through people seeing these - and would love to take more! Get in touch if you're interested :)
