Lucky dip!

Are you feeling lucky?
Take a peek at these new lucky dip bags! They're full of fun original goodies & artwork all wrapped up in the cutest packaging ever *look at that heart cello bag!!*. The paintings are absolutely perfect to frame or pin to your walls with Blu-tac/washi tape. And if you're feeling crafty you could make a quirky bunting from some of the pieces too.

Each lucky dip contains at least one random handmade pottery magnet. So you can decorate your fridge or white board with a quirky cuuuuute biscuit!!! They've been lovingly handmade from strong air-dry clay, hand painted & sealed with two coats of varnish. There are tiny holes, marks & bumps all over each wonky magnet which gives it a wonderful tactile charm.


The actual value of each bag is well over £16 but I'm giving these to you for half the price!!! Only five bags have been made so move quickly if you want to get your hands on one.....

Easter goodie bags

I'm so egggsited to show you these super cute Easter goodie bags I've made for you guys!!! They're bursting with brand new sweeeeet products & perfect pastel quirkyness - I hope you all love them as much as I do. Split this assortment up in to separate gifts for your pals or keep the lot for yourself. Here's a little sneak preview of the goodies you'll receive before it goes online:

Pink confetti egg necklace
If you're like me & you love a bit of novelty dressing this is a must have for the easter holidays. These have been hand painted on to laser cut wood & hung on an eighteen inch antique style chain.

Chick garland kit
My favourite thing about Easter are those mental looking plastic toy chicks with wonky eyes, they're so cute! This is what inspired me to make this sweet little DIY kit - it contains a random assortment of original chick paintings, six pink stickers & twine. The garland is super easy to make: you attach the twine to the back of each chick with a pink sticker then it's ready to hang up!

Sparkly carrot brooch
Add a touch of sparkle to your Easter outfit this year - I made this bunch of quirky wooden carrots (and I'm so happy with how they came out!) they have been hand cut, painted, varnished, sprinkled with glitter & finished off with an antique style brooch pin glued to the back. You could receive any one of these wonky carrots, each brooch is slightly different with it's own unique charm.

Pastel egg book
Don't you love all the pastel colours at Easter time? This perfect pastel concertina book is an original piece of artwork, each one has been signed & numbered on the back. Just looking at this makes me want Mini Eggs - I love//hate the fact that you can only buy them around this time of year...

These goodie bags will be available in my Etsy shop from Friday 13 March at 6pm so set your alarms! There is a VERY limited amount available, only 6 bags have been made. They contain an original hand painted book, two pieces of jewellery & a garland kit - also the bags will be bursting with toy chicks, confetti and some secret added extras all for just £15 +P&P. As always everything will come wrapped up in super cute packaging & sealed with hand painted stickers.

Bye bye February, hello March!

Yay it's March! But where did February go? I can hardly believe it's over already - time flies when you're having fun I guess.

February was a super busy month for me, so much happened. It began with Valentine's Day cards. I worked really hard to get all of your orders to you in time for the big day, thank you to all of the lovely people who bought one!

I made a very limited amount of tiny hand painted books which are available in my shop. I've been working on a couple of different commissions with a children's publisher for quite a while now, but I haven't produced any of my own books for about two years so this was a really refreshing project!

I love making simple concept books, I focused on the Spring for these as I'm so excited about the new season. Yellow rain coats, colourful umbrellas & rainbows are just a few of the things I love about spring.

I also continued to experiment with my 3D works & I came up with these biscuit magnets for my etsy shop - I LOVE how they turned out! Old Tat magazine spotted these on Instagram too & we're going to collaborate on a new exciiiiting project (more info coming soon) I can't wait to tell you all about it.

And not forgetting a few milestones were met in February as well, I reached 1000 followers on Instagram & over 100 sales on etsy!!! Thank you so much for all of your support :)
