Fairy Light Garlands

This week I have been busy photographing new items for my Etsy shop, it can be so easy to make them, but getting the right lighting to get some nice photos is tough!

I made these fairy light garlands back in December for the Diezijn Leuk market. I all five sets I made so had to make more to photograph and put in my etsy shop.

Each garland has 20 LED lights with felt hearts or stars, they shine so lovely in the evening.
They are battery powered so can be hung anywhere.
These are for sale in my Etsy shop, and I will also be taking custom requests for colours and shapes soon!

Sweet Valentine Garland

I have been working on this sweet valentine garland and now it is ready!

The garland is 2 meters long (but I also take custom requests for different lengths) and is made from two different sized hearts.

Each heart is die cut from wool blend felt, and I used sweet valentine colours for this garland, pink, hot pink, red and purple.

If you would like to order one, send a message or visit my Etsy shop.

Diezijn Leuk November 2014

This year (like for the past few years) I had a stand at the Diezijn Leuk market in Groningen.

The market is always great fun, you get to meet other creative people, and also interact with your customers.

We were super lucky this year in that the weather was great! It was cool, but not cold and only a little windy now and then. It made all the difference to the day, and you could see that in how many people that came, it was busy all day through and come 5pm (time to pack up) I was exhausted.

So thank you to everyone who came by to visit me on the day. Now it is over I can focus on Christmas orders again!

New Craft Room

We moved into our new home back in February and there has been lots of DIY projects going on since with every room needing redecorating etc.

Finally this month I finished my craft room and was able to put all my supplies out nicely and within easy reach again!

I have all my felt and buttons on shelves, with my ribbon out on the rack by my desk. In the other corner I have some storage draws for all the bits and bobs.

I also made a simple inspirational poster that I just printed at home and put in this turquoise frame from ikea.

make beautiful things

I still need to do a few finishing touches like setting up my photo area etc, but it is nice to have a little room to put all my stuff.

I love my customers!

I love receiving custom order requests for my felt garlands, the colour combinations and requests that my customers come up with are just lovely!

custom star garland

This beautiful garland is on its way to Emily in Australia. I absolutely love the colours she picked, away from the traditional rainbow but they look great together!

And I hope Gigi will have a lovely birthday with this set of custom birthday bunting and matching star garland.
