Wonderful Plumber

We really like our plumber.... he's funny, tends to sing a lot, and also is totally reliable! Last time he was here, a week ago, he fitted some new taps in the bathroom. Unfortunatley we also needed a new toilet cistern..... booooo to more expenses! However, he also made an order for lots of my wooden goodies, which we will take off the price of the new loo. Fantastic!

Anyway, we made him a special wooden badge as a secret Christmas gift..... don't tell him!

Presents for Drama Queens

Had such good fun making some lovely wooden badges - especially for Drama Queens! Have to say, my daughter is definitely going to be getting one for Christmas. Or perhaps I might make a HUGE one for her and attach a magnet to the back - when she has a hissy fit I can stick it on the fridge just about eye level!

Cake Topper Heaven!

We all enjoy a good munch of cake...... well, perhaps all of us! I certainly do, which is why I am now taking amends to munch less cake and eat more apples.

Have been making some wonderful wooden cake toppers - ideal for transforming the simple cup cake into something extraordinary. The large toppers are perfect for wedding, birth, death, anniversary, cakes of all descriptions! Personalised to suit, you may choose to have any words you like burnt onto the banner....

Magic in the air tonight!

Magic Key, Magic Key, I see you there
What will you open? What will be there?
Magic Key, Magic Key, wooden and fine,
I think that I need you, come now and be mine....

Having so much fun with my new range of keys. Somebody lovely on my facebook fan page was asking me if I did 'Santa' keys. Just as I was designing some! I quickly speeded up production (which involves making sure I stay off the internet for toooo long), and made a few.
Interestingly, in the picture above, you will see that actually the locking mechanism (that twiddly bit that goes in the actual lock), is the wrong way round!
I therefore used my faithful photo editing software to change them around a bit in this photo. The reason being, that if you hold a key so the writing is the right way up, the lock bit needs to point downwards! All very technical, but hubby now tells me I have it correct...
