About MisHelenEous

On Etsy since 2013

Ill health led to life and career change

I graduated from University in 1995 with a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art (Painting & Photography) and began my career in the Art Education departments in High Schools and Colleges within Manchester City Council. But following illness I became Self Employed after being unable to find another job with hours that suited my long term health problems.

I then opened my Etsy shop in June 2013 after having lovely feedback from people on social media after they had seen some of the things I make. Bespoke orders started to come in and I produced many personalised gifts which now appear in my shop. Some of my designs are even named after the dog or person they were inspired by.

Running my own Small Business means I have the peace of mind and freedom to create gifts for you in a way that is manageable for me. In short, the perfect job! Since then I've shipped my items to 34 different countries on 5 continents, from Manchester England.

An official Made In Britain member my Etsy shop was one chosen to appear in the first EtsyUK TV Advert but I was unable to attend the filming day personally.

I became a TheoPaphitis SBS Winner on 04/03/18 (small business sunday)

Sadly we lost our beloved first 'Shop Dog', Border Terrier Whiskey, on 23/01/15 in sudden and unexpected circumstances. She was my business inspiration and daily companion and you can still see her on some of my product listings. RIP Whiskey x

But on a happier note we now have new recruit Heidi Bluebell (another Border Terrier!) She joined us on the 6th July 2015 and is my current furry sidekick and Model.

I suspend Custom & Bespoke Orders at the end of October to concentrate on Christmas Season sales, so contact me before then to avoid disappointment. Also please keep an eye on the last UK to Overseas posting dates below:

LAST POSTING DATES:
CAN/NZ/AUS 11th November.
USA/ASIA 18th November.
EU 2nd December
UK 19th December.
Orders placed after these dates will not be guaranteed for Christmas Delivery!

*I don't offer Free Shipping because shipping isn't free. I don't hide the postage costs in my item prices for reasons of transparency and UK Accounting and Tax Laws.*
