What have you got planned for the day?
This is Broga, a frog I created late last night (finishing touches this morning). She is needle-felted, can sit by herself on a shelf or desk, or can be used as a finger puppet.
Broga will be on sale on the Felt.Buzz Etsy shop soon.
Hope you had a great NYE and 2015 will be kind to you and yours!
I have had a great present to start the year: been wondering what to do with all that hair!
J’ai fabriqué ces arbres avec les vrais capsules des glands de chêne et les boules en feutre.
Disponible, bientôt, dans la Boutique du Coin, Vallieres (Creuse) et au marchés de noël dans le coin! Je peux les faire sur commande (10euros + livraison)
Available, soon, in the Boutique du Coin, in Valliere, and at various local Christmas Markets. I can also produce them on demand (10euros + p&p)
Today, the Felt.Buzz Spotlight is on Cheeky Tree Creations.
Cheeky Tree Creations is run by Tanya, a mother of two boys, who loves to be creative in her spare time. I love the name Cheeky Tree Creations, I tell Tanya, for some reason it brings a smile to my face whenever I see it.
“My main inspiration [for the name was] from my two boys which are my cheeky monkeys who love to climb so everytime I think of Cheeky Tree it reminds me [of] my boys.
“I only started seriously crafting and thinking about selling earlier this year, in March in fact when we booked the craft fair. Before that I have been making presents for friends and relatives. It was my two boys who inspired me. Samuel who is nearly 3years and Lukas who is 15months. My oldest Samuel is dinosaur mad and there were not many things for boys anywhere so that is what made me start. I work part-time and stay home with the boys for the rest of the time so life gets rather busy”
Cheeky Tree Creations‘ first craft fair (last weekend), exceeded Tanya’s expectations: “What a fantastic weekend we had. First craft fair went better than expected and was a really enjoyable experience! [We have] no craft [more] fairs yet lined up but at the moment it is something that I am looking into. Hoping to do a local one in October and hopefully one before Christmas”
Everything has moved so quickly for Tanya since deciding to make a business out of her craft: “I haven’t had time yet to put many things onto my etsy shop, as I was mainly concentrating making things for the craft fair and I only tend to get an hour or two in the evenings to do anything so most of my time went to preparing for the craft fair. Hoping now to concentrate more on my online presence.”
