So many ideas for these little log pieces! So far I've painted robins, snowmen and now these little love wreaths. I made a few last year and fully intended to cut my own branches this year but worry the surfaces would be all wobbly - have you tried it? I'd be interested to know how it worked and what saw you used. More images to follow as I finish them.
Just as we're about to get knee deep in robins and reindeer the invites and paperwork for next years craft shows start popping through the door - it happens every year but always catches me off guard. I'm not one for forward planning - took 20 years to get this website off the ground ha ha - so thinking about a new business year just doesn't compute. I want to revel in the here and now, to really enjoy this slow and steady build up to the creative climax of the year.
Every year, about now, I fantasise about what I'm going to make my loved ones this Christmas - the personalised photo frame complete with handpicked photos, that particular brooch to go with that particular dress, the silly in-joke stocking filler that only they will understand. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't, but when it does - it is always loved and mostly treasured.
I wonder what you are planning to make this year, I'd love to hear! Feel free to comment below.... here's one I made earlier!
We've had lovely feedback and we so appreciate it. Being creative types we're also pretty open to new ideas so if there's anything you'd like to see here please let us know.
Today we had cows for company, they visit the field behind the studio twice a year and usually chomp on the cordelines in our garden. Been a glorious October so far hasn't it?
We're so pleased you came! It's been a little bonkers getting this ready - a whirlwind of learning techie stuff ha ha - but we're here and the bare, but dare we say, beautiful bones of our online shop is in the real world sharing the love, thank you for joining us.
What better way than to spend an autumn evening browsing our new website? we have so much more to bring too - please keep checking back, our workshop is bursting with new makes in various stages and we'll be bringing them to you soon.
Boo! Our delivery of lovely components to make more pretties has gone astray (UK mail - don't ask), it'll just be a bit longer before we can share them with you all. In the meantime here's a rather natty brooch pin, almost finished, fresh off the kitchen table..
Less than a week to go til launch - no idea right now if we'll make it in time but we're trying really hard to get everything done. We're hoping to bring you some lovely things, some inspiration and some joy... best get back to it!
