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.

Next Event – Leicester Handmade Craft Fair

15 Feb


Original Minnie Leicester Map

The next event will now be Saturday 6th March, in Leicester at the Fabrika Arts Centre (The Arts Organisation).  It is the first time Original Minnie has displayed in Leicester so its exciting!   Apparently Fabrika has its own coffee bar, which I’m sure I will take full advantage of to keep re-fueled!

It also means that weekend is going to be a double whammy with the Leicester event on Saturday and the Woodhall Spa event on Sunday – phew!  I’d better get cracking on my new designs so I have plenty of goodies to take!

For more info on either event, take a look at the Events page.
