*LATEST* International Shipping Suspended until further notice. I will review the situation again in 2022. Thank you for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience.

LAST UK POSTING FOR CHRISTMAS 2021 IS MONDAY 20th DECEMBER. Estimated Delivery Times stated by Etsy are on the very optimistic side. Please bear this in mind before placing an order to avoid disappointment, thank you. My shop will remain open over the Christmas period but dispatch of orders will not be immediate due to the bank holidays.

☆ During the Covid19 outbreak I have tried to continue trading as normally as possible. However there may be times when I have to put a longer dispatch period on orders both in the UK and Overseas. I may also have to suspend Overseas again and even UK orders at times. I may eventually have to put my Etsy Shop in Holiday Mode if I I get ill or have to self isolate, the Post Office is closed, and/or Mail cant be sent. I will keep you notified of any changes but if you have any concerns please contact me before placing an order. Follow @misheleneous on Twitter & Instagram for regular updates. Stay safe and well, best wishes, Helen. ☆

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 FOR CHRISTMAS 2021:
UK: Tuesday 16th December.

Due to the ongoing Corona Virus Global Pandemic this is a posting guideline only and orders cannot be guaranteed for Christmas Delivery.

    I chose Monarch Print to produce these natural tote bags, transfer printed with my logo, as they are another small company based in the UK & I have neither the space nor equipment to make them myself.
