In memory personalised christmas decoration

This Christmas will be a sad occasion for me. It will be the first Christmas without my younger brother as he sadly passed away in August.
Inspired by his desire, before he passed away, to support the British Liver Trust I have made 'In Memory' Christmas decorations and 10% of all the sales of these will be sent to the charity after christmas.

The decorations cost just £4.00, and are available as a tree or star shape, with your choice of wording. The stars can have up to 4 words on the front and on the rear a Christmas embellishment of choice.

The trees hold slightly more words - up to 8 and again there is a choice of christmas embellishment and glitter colour.

Please feel free to share this blog post on twitter, facebook etc to help me raise my donation for the British Liver Trust.

Personalised Wedding Plaque Keepsake

Using pyrography and 2 very cute little ceramic resin teddies I made this personalised wedding keepsake plaque as a wonderful gift to give to a bride and groom.

Personalised Wedding Keepsake Plaque

It costs £10.

The oval solid wood plaque is 21cm wide, 9cm high and 13mm thick.

It makes a wonderful keepsake and gift to give to the newly weds.
The plaque is personalised with the bride and grooms details, date of the wedding, and place. It also has "Congratulations on your Wedding Day" on.
Ceramic bride and groom teddies, which are appox. 5cm tall, are added also to the plaque.
Hanging twine is added and your choice of gingham or heart ribbon.

Facebook Challenge

My friend challenged me to see if I could reach 300 facebook 'likers' by Sunday afternoon!
I'm currently at 291 so it's very close! Will it be a case of 'so near but so far'.

Can you help me? If you can please 'like' my facebook page

Also, on the left hand side under the logo on my facebook page is a 'suggest to friends' button. Can you invite friends to follow the page using that link, then hopefully I might make the target with a few over too!

Many thanks to anyone that can help, it's much appreciated.

I'm going to put a discount code on my facebook page if I make it, as a huge thank you!

Reviews and in the Press

I am delighted that Samigail's Handmade Personalised Gifts has been featured in reviews and also in a craft start up guide.

Our latest review is on Iconic Gifts website. I am delighted to have had 2 products chosen for review on this site, Sunny Rag Doll and the Father Plaque. To see the review please click here

Being interviewed for the first time was exciting and nerve-racking all at the same time! However, I was really pleased that my comments and experiences setting up and running Samigail's were featured in a craft start-up guide and hope anyone thinking of the same finds the guide useful.

Finally, another recent review was for a teacher gift plaque - another glowing review!

Personalised Fairy / Princess Wands

After a long wait for the wands (which I was just itching to get my hands on) they have finally arrived and I have had a lot of fun thinking of how to decorate them.

The wooden wands are approximately 27 cm long (point of star to end of stick) with a wooden star measuring 7cm (point to point). The star is 9mm thick.

My daughter (showing the wand in action in the photo!) has loved hers from the moment she set eyes on it and has been round and round the garden turning everything and anything into frogs with her magic spell, ending with a dramatic "Kazoom!".

The wording on the wand is entirely flexible. They could be used for any number of present ideas - birthday gifts, flower girl thank you gifts, or even classroom gifts with the name of the class on one side and eg "This week's star" on the other.

The wands are £5.50 each and are found here

It's interesting to see what words the children will come up with to describe their daddy.... I gave them the word FATHER and told them to come up with a word for each of the letters in the word..... now it could have been disastrous, but they came up with lovely ones which I then turned into a plaque for them. Since it turned out quite well I decided it should be included on the website.

What do you think... didn't they come up with great words (son is 6, daughter is 4)

Mother's Day

Samigail's Handmade Personalised Gifts has lots of ideas for unique Mother's Day presents.

Our newest addition was inspired by a little cat wooden embellishment which was added to a plaque with some suitable wording. As with any of our plaques, the wording can be changed to suit!
There are also some cat bookmarks to go with the plaque!

It's approaching Valentine's Day so Samigail's Handmade Personalised Gifts has a number of suitable plaques for gifts for a loved one.

Any of the plaques can have your own message added. Simply decide which plaque you like and let us know the message. I've always wanted to personalise a plaque with "Will you marry me?" Will this year be the year?? I'll even add in extra ribbon for a ring to be tied onto the plaque.

So, feel free to have a good browse around all our Valentine's themed plaques and send a unique gift this year.

Personalised Flowergirl or Bridesmaid Teddy

One of my latest gifts added to the website is a gorgeous little teddy which is dressed as a flowergirl or bridesmaid.

It has a wooden heart tag added to it with 'Thank you for being our flowergirl' burned onto it by the art of pyrography.

There is a choice of teddy in either a pink dress or a golden yellow dress. It would make a lovely little keepsake gift for any flowergirl or bridesmaid.

The teddy is found here and costs £8.00 plus P&P of £1.50
