80th birthday card

This week sees my dear old Gramps 80th birthday. He has not been in the best of health for the past few years and sadly he will be spending this birthday in hospital.  He needs and wants for nothing, but it is important to me to show him how much I care about him and I do that by taking the time to make him something.

I could nip down the shop and buy him a card, they’re are plenty of nice ones out there, but they won’t be personal and contain the love that was in my heart as I thought about my Gramps whilst making this.

Custom ordered candles

The colours of these candles were specified as part of the commission as they are a wedding gift, and they were to match the bride and grooms colour scheme of purple and gold.

These up-cycled  glass dessert pot candles are fast becoming one of my signature products – and I am happy with that as I love making them!

These were decorated with pretty ribbon featuring hand stitched bead detailing and have a focal point of gorgeous glass hearts and hand decorated rose beads.

Camera Pouch

 

A friend recently treated herself to a new little point and shoot camera, and it seems these days they don’t come with a free case..how naughty! So she asked me to make her a pretty case to protect her new purchase, wanting it to be rugged and hard wearing I made the outside from an up cycled pair of denim jeans, but added a feminine touch with some pretty Cath Kidston inspired floral fabric. Finished with a vintage button and delicate ribbon tie.
