If you have a special colour theme for your Special Day, please let me know as I can alter the colour of the hearts, and I have a selection of fonts for you to choose from.

I can also add trimmings of your choice – buttons, ribbons, a ‘Wedding Ring’, or leave the cards plain.

I created this design specially for a friend, but I thought it was so nice, I would add it to my range of greetings cards.  What do you think?

You can find this card, and many others in my Folksy shop.

From ribbons to bows, to buttons to felt, I have made a variety of brooches for Original Minnie.  I use a combination of new, old, vintage, and reclaimed materials.

All Original Minnie jewellery comes in a gift/presentation box, ready for giving.

We are getting closer every day, so if you haven’t got all your Christmas Cards written yet, today might be the day to sort the last ones.  If you are buying handmade presents this year, there’s no need to stop with that – you can find loads of lovely handmade cards on Folksy.com, all made in the UK by independent designers.

I have my own new designs for 2010 for sale in my Original Minnie Folksy SHOP.


Each design features pretty varigated holly photos taken by me, printed, cut, and then finished with a juicy red berry button.

Every card comes with an envelope made from recycled paper, and packaged in an eco-friendly ‘compostable’ clear bag made from corn starch, NOT plastic!

Handmade for £1.50 each, or buy in bulk and save money with 3 cards for £4.  If you would like to mix and match designs just message me and I can sort it for you!


What did you do last Summer?

11 Nov

Well, there has been a bit of a gap in blogging over the last few months, so its time to start up again, and (very) briefly explain what I’ve been doing…

During the Spring and Summer I was designing a range of Wedding Stationery, taking photos of beautiful flowers (lots of roses!), doing computer bits, printing, cutting, stamping, glueing buttons, tieing ribbons, making samples, and much more…

I still need to get some lovely photos together of some of the creations, but here is a little taster of the Menu to get started.

FELT BIB STATEMENT NECKLACES

Just a quick post to let you know that I’ve updated my Folksy shop, adding new items including my geometric Felt Bib Necklaces for 2010.  I made a small collection of them, each different colours, using new and reclaimed felt, hand painted textiles, and reclaimed/vintage buttons.

They are one-offs, each unique – perfect if you want a statement necklace.

So keep checking as I upload new colour ranges, or get in contact and I can give you more details of the colours available.
