News / Dublin Market
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! :)
One of my cute handmade peg decorations in full glory on my tree...please excuse the sentiments in the background - crafters are full steam ahead at this time of year with markets & handmade gifts in the run up to Christmas and it takes its toll at times! :)
Phew! The Flea was such a whirlwind, what a weekend! Now for some well deserved sleep, which I am starting to feel very deprived of. The flea was so busy that I started running out of stock and had to come home in the evening and make and pack up more to sell! What a complaint to have. I may now sleep for a week however zzzzzzzzz
Was great to see so many familiar faces and meet so many more of you too, thank you so much for coming by my stall to say hello and helping to support my little business and my dream - it means so much to me!
I had a real treat when Lights, Camera, Laura stopped by (thanks Laura White!) to have a little chat with me about my products and ideas. I am however not used to being in front of a camera as you can see by the result! :)
Delighted to be able to showcase my little business. Meet the Maker behind The Makery - enjoy!
Beginning to look a lot like Christmas ❄⛄
All go down at the Dublin Christmas Flea in Point Village but not complaining!. Great response to my creations and some lovely feedback from customers. Makes all the mental long hours of prep worthwhile

Adorable snowmen army! Loving these super cute little Christmas addition to the product line. It's also fun get raw materials to make these guys ;)
Getting ready for the Dublin Christmas Flea in Point village this weekend. These little cuties will be there with some other handmade decorations. Pop by and say hello
Very apt on a freezing night like tonight!
These gorgeous little robin Christmas pebble pics are just €15 and made to order. I do expect them to fly out (sorry!) so please get your orders in early.
I will also have a stock of these at the Dublin Christmas Flea market in Point Village from 9th-11th Dec, so pop down and pick up some unique locally crafted gifts for your loved ones this Christmas.
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.
I'll have some great upcycled and unique Christmas gifts available. I can also take orders before then for collection at the market. Pm for more details. It's going shaping up to be a great market, all indoors too in case the weather isn't great.
Busy few weeks ahead! Game on
