Handmade gifts

Some gifts I made for my Mum. A hand painted vase, and clay bowls imprinted with a doiley. A few of my badges are in the bowl. As I mentioned before, the bowls were helped along with this tutorial by sodapop design found at the Creature Comforts blog.

Art Initial "M"

Individual letter artwork. Ink and gouache on paper. Now added to my etsy shop, it makes a lovely, personalised and very unique gift!
More letters to come or I can do custom orders, and can include a favourite plant or flower to make it extra special. If you are interested, email me for more info.

Hand carved rubber stamp collection

Hand carved stamps

Some of the stamps I carved last year. I keep them in an old ice cream tin, but will have to find a new home for them as the collection is growing. Carving stamps is a great way to procrastinate! By the way - I am now back to work after a lovely break, and my etsy shop has reopened. Have a great weekend!

I am taking some time off for a camping trip on the coast to one of the places we visited on our road trip last year. Here are some photos from that trip. My etsy and madeit shops will reopen mid January when we return!
