Hello everyone,

We go to various events throughout the year, and we thought you'd like to know where we will be for the rest of 2016... This year has gone by so quickly!

Get in touch via email, social media or here, and we can help you out with bespoke, personalised, limited edition handmade gifts for Christmas 2016! Oh and any late birthdays too.

We hope you've enjoyed reading our first blog post, hopefully we'll learn how to improve them through time!
