We’re out of Puddleducks and Tiggywinkles.

The rather bizarre title of this post is what I found myself telling a customer on Sunday.  In my head this was a perfectly logical statement but the amusement of the customers made me realise how being a solitary craftworker means I’ve created my own code language without realising.  If you are wondering I currently have no clocks made from the Beatrix Potter tales of Jemima Puddleduck or Mrs. Tiggywinkle 🙂

One of the things I want to do this year is broaden the ranges I sell so I’ve been experimenting with some early tests for beads made from book pages.  These are the first two trials so there are lots of improvements yet to be made.

I want to get some other lines in production too if I can find materials at the right price and work out the methods for making.  Hopefully I’ll be able to reintroduce the paperweights.  I’d also like to have a go at small wall shelves made from hardback books.  Some other ideas I’m not sure are as feasible so expect more test product photos to show lots more design, fail and hopefully develop to working endeavours.
