Meet Phil

Say hi to Phil from Mitchell’s Timbercraft the very talented craftsman who makes my gift boxes.


As a bit of a perfectionist myself I was finding it difficult to source the type of packaging I wanted for my new product range. For me its all about quality, creating something special, in the end only handmade would do. Plus I get to support another local maker. Phil was a perfect choice as his attention to detail far surpasses mine, to be honest when I am looking for someone to work with if they are a little OCD you know they are going to do a great job.

Don’t they look lovely. A perfect gift for Christmas and available here

Now Phil also makes lots of other gorgeous things here are a few examples.

Check out more of his work on his Facebook page here pop on over and give him a like. Most importantly don’t forget to buy local and handmade this Christmas 🙂


Confessions of a design geek

I was totally amazed to have been shortlisted for the confessions of a design geek bursary, I think I even did a little dance around my house in my pyjamas (it was quite late when it was announced). Now its over to you to vote

In other news I have been flocking, oh yes and it is too much fun. I wanted a way of finishing the bottom of my pots so they wouldn’t scratch anyone’s furniture and this fits in with my use of other materials and bright colours. I just love it, I am slightly tempted to flock everything in my house but that might be taking it a bit far.

Here are some flocked bottoms

and some new work which is available to buy at Heal’s London and 45 Southside Plymouth
