Happy New Year and here's to the first blog post of 2016!

20151011_112921-1-1 - copyHandprint hearts set in deep wooden frame

 

This fabulous idea was a commission from a lovely lady with two children and she wanted handprint hearts within a heart to send to both sets of grandparents.

Handprint keepsakes

They were a pleasure to make and were very well received by both grandparents.  The design has now been added to the website.  The wording can of course be changed just get in touch if you would like to see what can be done.

I also had another first, with many a cut to the poor old fingers!

During the latter part of last year I moved into the realms of glass fusing and finding it quite theraputic, despite the pain on occassion, to cut glass and see how many attempts it takes to get it right!!

Having previously had a paw print coaster made In Memory of Gunner, beloved and loyal furbaby .....

Paw print keepsake

 

I was asked by a customer to undertake the challenge of making one of my hanging glass decorations in a shape other than a circle!

And here it is!

A very special paw print keepsake in the form of boot to hang from the Christmas tree!

and the message that was sent with this photo ......

"Thank you for my very special gift for my mum and dad, mum cried she loved it that much!!!!"

It was then a little spooky as I was asked by another customer if I could make some handprint hanging decorations in a shape other than a circle .......... personally I love my circles (all cut by hand you know!)  I secretly showed her Gunner's boot - she was very taken with the idea but preferred them in clear glass and so I made some clear hanging handprint boots - again these shapes are cut by hand and I think it's probably time to move on and try another shape now!
