Something just for Maisie...

I decided today to make something for Maisies Nursery.  I had a block canvas and plenty of pink buttons so decided to make a monogram picture.  Seeing I tend to hand sew nearly all my creations, using glue was a bit strange and I managed to get it everywhere!!  It looks like it would only take 20 minutes to do, but for me it seemed to take a lot longer....  It was a bit of a puzzle getting all the buttons to fit, but I got there in the end.

The birth of Blinky the Blue Whale

A few months ago I created an owl family for a lovely lady in Barbados and she has recently been back in touch wanting something for her little boys room and so Blinky the Blue Whale was born.

I still have to figure out how to hang him up... I'm thinking a white wooden dowel as it is not balanced enough to hang off a wooden bead. 




Have a lovely long weekend!!

Big news!

Wow! what a week.  Monday was very emotional, what with putting Maisie into full time childcare, which resulted in lots of tears (not from Maisie!). This was due to the fact my maternity leave was over and  I was returning to my full time, other life job in banking. 

Yesterday was my first day back and I must say it was great to see all my old work pals, but I can't say I enjoyed the fact I would be missing out on seeing my beautiful daughter play and grow daily.  So today, my second day back, resulted in my resignation being tendered and I am now officially a full time mum.  Quite a scary, yet exciting concept which means Maisie-Moo Felt Creations will receive more attention too. 

In the last 6 months I have seen Maisie-Moo Felt Creations grow and I have had great pleasure in creating nursery art for customers from all over the globe.  To be able to continue creating and hopefully grow my little business will enable me to 'have it all' and be able to spend more time with Maisie and my family.

This means in two weeks time I am officially back and my Felt and Etsy shops will be up and running again.

Thank you to all my wonderful friends and lovely customers who have made this possible.

Big loves Ria at Maisie-Moo
