About

Exciting Fun Cute Quirky Colourful Creations AND Great Gift Ideas!

My journey to where I am now started a long time ago when I had aspirations of going to art college after leaving school. Sadly this wasn't something I was able to do and instead went straight to working in an office.

After having two children I became a housewife and mother while still doing art as a hobby. Over the years I have taught myself how to do all the things and more I have in my shop. See more of what I have taught myself to do over the years at, http://carentaylor.wordpress.com/

As my children grew older I had more time to pursue these hobbies and never let go of my dream, being a professional artist.

Once my children were ready to fly the nest they encouraged me to chase this dream again full time and show the world what I can do and eventually persuaded me and helped me to open My Etsy shop.

Over the years my creative crafting side has also developed more and my time is now split between creating art and crafts.

The dream is now a reality for after being a housewife and mother for 25 years I AM now a professional artist, selling art and prints and also my crafted items. I am also available for commissions both in artwork and personalised handcrafted items too, please feel free to contact me if you feel I can help with anything you may want created

I couldn't be happier :-)

Thank you for stopping by, I do hope you enjoy browsing in my shop

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
