I’m excited to have these new wooden shapes to work with. I love the magnets I made with the 3 cm squares, I just need to decide what to do with these! I’m thinking notebooks....
I’ve reduced the prices across the shop today. I love these plaques but they weren’t selling at the higher price. There are only a few available though so I have to decide whether to make any more...

My first child-free morning in weeks so I’ve been busy uploading new products. Most are over on CandelabraCrafts but this Alice necklace sits nicely in this shop I think.

About

A New Adventure

Hi there,
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read about my new venture. I'm currently a stay at home mum to two boys and, over the past few years, I've been learning to write fiction. I absolutely love it - a chance to disappear into worlds of my own making. A couple of years ago I published a book of gothic short stories called 'Into Dust and Other Strange Tales'. It has been well-received and I'm still proud of it but the plan to move into novel writing hit a wall with baby number two. Too little sleep combined with finding it difficult to carve out long enough chunks of time to write anything meaningful had me casting around for a creative outlet which I could do in shorter bursts.

After attending a local craft fair and following many visits to Pinterest, I decided to give making things a go. I quickly got the bug, finding that I could leave my projects on the kitchen island (out of reach of grubby fingers) and return to them whenever I got a moment. Very soon I couldn't sleep for the ideas running through my head (and also the crying baby) and I haven't looked back since. It has given me a new direction and I'm excited to see where it takes me. Focusing on family-related items seemed natural, although I have also produced some literary-type items which reflect my love of books and writing. They can also be found on Etsy under CandelabraCrafts.

I hope you find something you like. If not, keep checking back - I've a feeling I won't be able to stop now.

    Hi, this is my smiling face - probably after some quiet writing or crafting time!

    As mentioned in my description,I am only currently selling a small number of mugs to compliment the rest of my stock. It isn't practical yet to buy my own equipment so I use a friendly small business in the Cotswolds which employs around 20 people. They print to my design.
