Making my childhood dreams a reality!

When I was younger I loved anything to do with art. I would get every book I could find in the library, and every evening my place in the living room was on the floor, legs splayed out behind me, producing some form of artwork whilst watching the telly with my family. I taught myself origami, calligraphy and so much more right from that spot. When decisions had to be made on my future, my mum wanted me to choose a sensible career, and art school was completely off limits because 'it was full of druggies!' I wish I had put up more of a fight at the time, but I didn't, and a law degree followed by a boring PA job followed. I eventually retrained and became a teacher, but when I had children I couldn't bear to give up the time I wanted to spend with them. I wanted to be a stay at home mum, and thanks to some money left to me by my late mother, I was able to. As much as being at home with my girls is incredible, it also strips back so much of what makes you as a person. I was no longer Naomi, but just mum - the cleaner, washer, and organiser of my children's lives. Starting to paint and craft again when I could in the evenings felt like I was finding that part of me that had got lost. I know, it sounds so melodramatic, but it's true! When I finish a painting which I have truly put my love and commitment into I feel like I have really accomplished something. To be able to make enough money from my work for me to be able to stay at home with my girls for a little longer is my dream. When you purchase something from my shop, I hope you enjoy it and cherish it, but I hope the knowledge that you are also helping my dreams come true will bring you a little happiness too. When you browse through my shop, please contact me if you have an idea for something which you don't see listed. This is the joy of things being painted and produced from scratch. Together we can produce something beautiful and completely unique!

    Hi! I am a stay at home mum to a toddler and a six year old. I have opened this shop to remind myself that I can dedicate a little time in the day to being selfish, and doing something which I love.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

If you are interested in a custom order please contact me letting me know what you are looking for and I will normally email you within a few hours to let you know if it can be done.

As soon as I have completed an order, I email a photo of the finished object so you can confirm you are happy with it before it is posted. If you are unhappy with any aspect, I will change it if possible immediately and send you new photos.

If a custom order is more complicated, I will send you progress pictures, so we can discuss how it is coming along. I will try and involve you as much as I possibly can throughout the process, so there are no surprises when something is posted to you.

Care instructions

My Christmas plates are produced using porcelain pens, and are then baked in the oven to ensure their longevity. The plates are dishwasher safe, but for optimum care, I would only recommend a light washing with a damp cloth, and not using any abrasive cloths because the design cannot be guaranteed to remain on the plate in these circumstances.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I always ensure that my items are carefully packaged and most will be gift wrapped or carefully wrapped in tissue to ensure they are safe, but that they are also fun to unwrap. I only use good quality boxes to post my items, and as yet, I have received no reports of anything being broken in transit.
