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.

I was happy to be asked recently to design some invitations for a family celebration.  Here is a little picture of how they turned out – what do you think?

New Website

11 Nov

Well, you may have noticed that this blog has now become my new website!

I will be changing things over the next week or so, to make it look more website-like, so bear with me in the meantime.

The plan is that now I will be able to keep this site updated more regularly, and keep you up to date with new designs, new events, and “all things Original Minnie“.

If you want to get in contact, my email may be down for the next couple of days, but you can always leave a message on one my posts.

I will be back soon…

Ahoy There!

21 Jul

UPDATED AT LAST!

After hours of fighting with the camera and computer, I’ve finally finished updating the Original Minnie Folksy shop with some of the new designs I’ve been creating over the past few weeks!  The photos are still not great unfortunately, but heres hoping I will sort the technology out in the future…

Firstly, I’ve added a couple of Wedding Cards – it was fun to do some new card designs, and to spend some extra time on each one.  I even got the sewing machine out (inspired by the lessons I’ve been attending), and have incorporated some stitching into the card.   Note to self – metallic thread is more difficult to work with!

Secondly, and for something quite different – here is a selection of some of the new ‘Ahoy There’ jewellery range – a fun take on this summers trend for all things nautical…

And finally, here are a few piccies from the ‘Tribal Ribbons‘ and ‘Tribal Knots‘ ranges – made with this summers other trend in mind – for ‘tribal’ style accessories.

Its quite a ‘loose’ subject description, and in a change with tradition (as with the ‘Ahoy There‘ range), the pieces I’ve made have mostly NOT used buttons…!  I have however kept with Original Minnie tradition by using a combination of new materials, with reclaimed pieces – by dismantling and reusing beads/stones/pendants from other jewellery, accessories, and clothing to create new, more interesting pieces.  It is more eco – friendly after all!

For more Original Minnie jewellery and cards, have a look at the Original Minnie Folksy Shop (opens a new window), or if you have any questions, please get in touch.

Welcome!

WELCOME  TO THE ORIGINAL MINNIE BLOG! 

This is a new experience for me (a bit of a technophobe), so bear with me as I go…

The aim of this blog is to bring you:

  • the latest photos of Original Minnie products as they come hot off the production line (as I finish making them)
  • up-to-date news on events Original Minnie will be attending
  • and any other interesting quirky / vintage / crafty / afternoon tea wonders I discover on my travels around the virtual and real world…  

So, why not make yourself a cuppa, and enjoy…
