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

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 :)

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.
This little guy is truly amazing. His name is Campbell and he makes teddy bears for sick kids in hospital. What an incredible little human, so thoughtful and creative. He taught himself to sew and uses scraps of fabrics to make each one unique. The world needs more people like Campbell.
