News / Birthday Gift
At a recent market, I met a lovely lady who took my card and contacted me shortly after about making a custom pebble art picture as a gift for her brother. She asked if I could create a sheep themed picture....I wasn't entirely sure how I would actually do it, but a little trial and error and a bit of imagination and voila! This custom pebble art picture was made using shells and pebbles collected from Irish beaches,some artificial grass helps to gives it some real depth and casts some amazing shadows! Commissions are very welcome. Please get in touch for more details.
I know I am biased, but I do love these cute little sheep! :)
New product - These adorable mini canvases have just the right amount of vintage style with vintage floral design, hessian background and butterflies cut from a vintage book. Used either inside the bedroom or playroom on on the door to let everyone know who's room it is. Please get in touch for customisation - on the online store now. You can get yours here.
I love making these mirrors. They are so colourful & playful and make a great accent in any kids room or playroom. Kid's love them too. I love seeing the look on kids faces when they realise that all my products have been upcycled, reloved and reused to make something else - the smile as they figure out what the product used to be in a former life makes me beam with pride. I have had some great suggestions from kids about other product ideas too - all sparked from looking at what I have produced. I love that ability in children to have the imagination to look past what it is and have really creative, imaginative and fun ideas that most adults could never dream of.
I will have a small number of these available at The Dublin Christmas Flea - but don't worry if you miss out, as always I can make to order :)
Tis the season....for craft fairs! 72 frames, one boot! Lots of making going on in preparation. Delighted to announce The Makery will be at this years Dublin Christmas Flea from 9th-11th Dec in Point Village North Wall! Pop on down and say hello, and support local traders and crafter's.

Busy few weeks ahead! Game on
There's nothing more personal than a photo collage gift. This frame was handmade for a good friends birthday using pine which has been stained grey, with some chicken wire added for that real rustic look. Tiny pegs keep the photos in place, with wooden L initial (for Laura), mini heart blackboard and purple painted star for added personalisation. These make great personal gifts and can be made to order with custom sizes, can even be used as a noticeboard. Please pm for more details.
