Skills and Techniques

Knitting and crochet. I have a mixture of items; some made from patterns created by my favorite designers, others made directly from my own imagination. I love to specialize in unusual items; something no one else has got. Sewing I only put a few of my puppet characters up for sale; each has their own little personality. Contact me for special makes like school mascots or company logos made up as toys or puppets.

Get to Know

I live high in the mountains of South Wales UK among the clouds and the sheep; perfect spot for dreaming and designing. I make mostly toys, but I also make fun accessories and housewares. I like my things to appeal to all age groups; many of my toys are bought as house-warming or congratulations gifts. Many of my items are quirky; you can always find something unusual here. The goods in my shop are a combination of items I've designed myself and those made from the patterns of my favorite designers. Every toy is handmade to Britsh Safety Standards with all new materials, safety eyes and warnings if not suitable for under 3's. During the day, I work in a local nursery with a wonderful group of young children. I specialize in helping the children with physical or mental challenges to join in and have fun with everyone else. I also do voluntary work with teenagers who have been excluded from school and help them to find things they are good at and improve their self-esteem. At home I have a chatty, happy pair of children who are always willing to give their oppinion on my latest creations, a supportive husband and an amazing dog who loves to go for long walks across the Welsh countryside.
