Christmas release – 2017

We are well into October and while many of you still have your hands over your ears saying lalalalala, that doesn’t change the fact that Christmas is coming!!

For me, it’s been all systems go for months. I have to make well over 300 decorations to prepare for the silly season. My Etsy shop is chock full of ready to ship sets and lots of options for personalised decorations. I’ve got you covered for teacher’s gifts, grandparent gifts, new baby gifts and special memories for your own tree.

Personalised decorations even have the option of coming with a gorgeous handmade gift pouch, so you don’t even have to worry about wrapping your super amazing gift!

Below are just some of the items available for purchase or order right now in my Etsy shop.

Two months until Christmas

I’m sorry my poor little neglected blog. With everything that comes with running my little business, you seem to come in last behind the seemingly endless… Facebook, Madeit, Etsy, Instagram, Newsletter, not to mention the many orders flooding in for Christmas decorations and other gifts at this time of year. Put on top of that my totally unrealistic need to produce something new and different at least once a fortnight and … Where was I…Ohh look, new gold foil decals on Etsy, now how could I use those…See what I mean!

I’ll keep this one short, well short on words and big on pictures, because that’s what we all like to see right, pictures of pretty things! To say the least I am busy. My order board, which is a big whiteboard hanging on my studio wall is full and has bit of paper stuck to the bottom with sticky tape and scribbled orders. I seem to wipe one off and add two more. But I do love this time of year and the craziness it brings.

And now for the pretty things. Here are some of the pieces I’ve been working on lately:

Gearing up for Christmas

Last year was the first Christmas for my porcelain ornaments. I was totally unprepared for how popular they would be and kept selling out and rushing to make more. So this year I’ve been preparing since Feb! Every time I pull out the clay to make some ring dishes or bowls, I make a few decorations to go into my stash.  I’ve started listing a few sets in my Madeit and Etsy stores, keep checking in regularly as I’ll be listing lots more over the coming months.

Here is a taste of what is to come
