Each year, mums are celebrated with a flurry of lovely gifts and ahead of the big day, I thought it would be a good occasion to round-up my favourite handmade goodies.
A bunch of flowers is often the go-to present for Mother's Day but what if you could keep pretty flowers forever? Nikki, founder of Palyglass, offers the most beautiful botanical treasures encased in geometric glass. Visit her Etsy shop to find out more
Day 4 | Favourite to make #MarchMeetTheMaker. Well after yesterday’s post of course it has to be my flower frames! I love to make terrariums and 3D glass objects, but after selling at markets it was clear that the flower frames were what people liked the most! I absolutely love to find flowers and foliage to press and frame to last forever in the glass. My absolute favourite is to frame sentimental flowers that the customer has pressed themselves. Whether it be from a bereavement a wedding or even a feather from a beloved pet chicken!
How about a fabulous hand-drawn portrait as something to cherish for years to come? Felicia's charming drawings will sure be a hit. Contact her for more info

I reworked this plate as it lacked definition in some areas (originally made 3 years ago and never editioned). This done in the intended colour way, scroll to see how different my first print looked #needtokeepbetternotes oh well the joy of varied editions ; I can pretend I meant this! #bathartist #artforthehome #collagraph ##bathhumbug #printmaking #originalart #localart #supporthandmade #byhand #artmarket #viscosityinking

I’m quite enjoying the snow / sun / cloud / drizzle combo today. Though I’m holding onto those brighter weekend days with some beautiful blooms from @lilyvioletmay and some Sunshine goodies too. (Which would also make a perfect combo for Mother’s Day 😉) . How are you holding on to the sunny weather as the temperature dips again? . . #sunshineforbreakfast #bristoletsyteam #bristolgirlbosses #mothersday2018 #mothersday #lilyvioletmay #underthefloralspell #pursueprettythings #simpleandcute #spring2018 #cherishandrelish_february #signsofspring #colourmyeveryday #incolourfulcompany #colouroftheyear #aflashofgold #flowersandotherstories #botanicalpickmeup #moodforfloral #mymomentwithflowers #mystoryoflight #walltowallstyle #interiorboom
