Cupcake tag-making kits (limited edition)

Just for a change, here is something a little different, we have two (only) kits of cupcake tags, each kit comprises three red and three green pre-holed tags, with pieces of fabric, pieces of paper, ribbons, embellishments and instructions.

Kit A.

Kit B.

These kits are priced at £2.00 each (postage free) or £3.50 for the pair. This is an unrepeatable offer, so if you like the look of them and want to have a go at making your own fabulous tags, please comment below, or contact us on

More hats

You can read about how we came to have all these hats here. They are being sold to help fundraise for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, priced at £3.00 each - all proceeds after postage costs will be donated directly to WAA.

no. 6 bright red baby-sized hat with small turquoise bobble (just visible at top of photo)

no 9 purple and heather striped child-sized hat

Please comment below if you would like one or more of these lovely hand-knitted hats.

Pretty in pink

We do love a nice bit of crocheting in the evenings in front of the telly, sometimes we make little squares to sew into larger ones, and sometimes we just start a square and make it larger, and larger, and larger. That's what happened to this one, it just kept growing until we had run out of yarn. It is now taking up valuable space in the studio, so is really looking to be adopted into a new and loving home.

The yarn is HAYFIELD-SIRDAR FANTASY DK Self Patterning Knitting Yarn - PINK 291, which we bought on ebay for £22.50. The blanket measures 50" (130cm) square and weighs 1 kilo, so postage costs, according to the Royal Mail website, would be quite extortionate (£8.00). Therefore you would really need to be able to collect this from us in Warminster and be prepared to make an offer in excess of £25.00. Or if you would really like to own it and can't arrange collection then your offer would need to be above £33.00. Over to you. Please leave a comment below. Thanks for looking.

Your patience is rewarded

Harry, Rick and the birds have been busily beavering away for the past couple of months and we are at last ready to launch ourselves on our unsuspecting public.

So, what is it we've been working on? Well, briefly, we've been gathering our assets to put together some craft kits, namely greetings card kits and tag kits. The kits contain all that you could possibly want or need to make your own cards or tags.

All kits are unique, each card kit contains 5 new white 240gsm pre-creased cards, either 5" x 5" or 6" x 4" (or a mix if preferred) with matching envelopes, paper pieces, fabric pieces, ribbons and embellishments, partly new and partly (clean) recycled, all you will need to complete your kits are scissors, glue and imagination. Here's a Christmas one we made earlier just to give you an idea.

Tag kits contain 6 pre-holed tags in a choice of colour/s from pink, yellow, white, pale blue, red or green, approx 2.5" x 4.5" with paper pieces, fabric pieces ribbons and embellishments as above.

All kits, both cards and tags, are available in Christmas packs or everyday packs, and all are despatched postage free to good homes (if you have a bad home we'll have to charge!). Below is a picture of the contents of one of the ready-made tag kits.

The gang are more than happy to fulfil specific colour requests for all tag kits (card kits are currently only available in white but colours may become available later), or you can take pot-luck and ask for one of our ready-mades. Either way, despatch will be within 24 hours of receipt of your order and payment. Card kits are priced at £2.75 each or two for £5.00, tag kits are £1.75 each or two for £3.00.

These kits will give you a good start into making your own cards on a fairly low budget, and are suitable for children and adults alike, our youngest customer so far - who admittedly needed a bit of help from his mum - is not yet two, so we could quite rightly claim they are suitable for all ages from toddler to dodderer.

If you would like to buy, or if you have any questions or queries, please either comment on this blog or email the gang at the address below.
