I am a small business based in Rhyl, currently working from home. I started crafting in 2017 after my mum passed away, it seemed to help give me calmness and keep me grounded. I began with painting items in my bedroom, mainly wooden plaques as gifts for friends and family and then went on to opening a unit in the local indoor market.
Custom was good and I was finally doing something I loved, it kept me going. After opening the unit was shut down a year later needing refurbishment, so I took my work home with me. I always had a good eye for colour and decided to make it my way when people gave me the colour options they wanted on each item. I learnt to blend colours and always added my own little twist to each item.
I started mainly with the wooden items, painting, and personalising them (through supplier) but later moved on to adding vinyl to my items. This led me into creating glass bottles with lights and box frames with family trees and other similar requests. Allowing me to expand what I was able to do I moved on to etching glasses. I took a year off through 2020 due to mental health but have since got back into it and I am now back in full swing.
The recent purchase of a flat heat press machine lets me do a lot more things on top of what I already did. I can now use HTV on material such as bags and clothes as well as other items. Not so long ago I was able to buy a sublimation printer. This has allowed me to add keyrings, coasters, cushion covers, make up bags and so much more!
I now have a mug press machine with sublimation mugs. These are both microwave and dishwasher safe. To me these are a better quality than just the permanent vinyl. With permanent vinyl you need to leave the mug to cure for at least 72 hours before use or wash whilst with sublimated mugs are ready to use immediately with no worry of the vinyl peeling.
If there is something specific that you want, then please contact me and I can see what I can do.
I love what I do. Being crafty is something that kept me going after a hard time. I love the reactions from people when they get something completely different from everyone else.
I cater for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, new baby, engagement, congratulations, weddings, just because, sympathy, in memory and so much more!
I take orders for personalised items. This could include wooden items, glass bottles with vinyl, glasses with vinyl or etching, clothes personalised, tote bags, mugs, family trees… all kinds of things.
