Don’t forget Mothers Day

29 Mar

Mothering Sunday is less than a week away now, so if you’re still struggling to find gifts or cards why not try Buying Handmade and looking online at Folksy where you can find handmade quality items from independent UK designer makers (some of which will post orders worldwide).

The official Folksy blog lists lots of ideas for quality handmade Mothering Sunday gifts.

I also have some greetings cards and notepads made from recycled card available in my Original Minnie Folksy shop.  They are all hand stamped by me, so if you would like a specific name or phrase, just let me know.

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.

18 days to Christmas

7 Dec

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.

Mothers Day

11 Mar

IS ON ITS WAY

So, I’m just realising that Mothering Sunday is this weekend, not next! Doh.

I’ve recently finished some Mother goodies, including a new range of recycled notepads which could make a lovely gift.  Recycled tags are attached and hand-stamped with various messages, and hand-punched with either a heart or star motif.

I also have a new range of Mother/Mum/Mummy cards, which are blank inside so could be used all year round for birthdays, thank yous, invites, etc.

For other designs, check out my Folksy SHOP.
