Birds & Butterfly Plaques for Handmade Monday

Oh hello, it's nice to see you all. 
You can tell it's summer can't you, not just because it's sunny and warm (most of the time) but because people keep disappearing for a week or two. Not me though, I've been a stay at home for now and enjoying the sunny days. I've been keeping busy, mainly with new plaques and it's nice to report that a few have been a direct result from this blog. This is one of them..... 

This is an excerpt from an email I received......
'I was just looking at your blog and saw a 
bedroom door plaque that I would be interested 
in purchasing for my 1 month old daughter........... 
Do you post items to Australia?'

Of course I said 'yes' and this is the finished Plaque. Purples, pinks and butterflies are a popular choice for little girls.This plaque was requested without a ribbon so it could be attached to the door with sticky pads.

Little Girls Door Plaque

This safely found it's way to Australia and I received a lovely reply (Thank you Andrew)......
'Thank you very much. The plaque is perfect 
and looks great up on my daughters door.
Tahlia will be extremely happy 
with it for years to come'.

Don't you just love it when you get great feedback.
I also had more orders from WowThankyou , Tracey (owner of WTY) works hard at promoting her site and with my own networking this has proven to be a successful online store. My latest orders have been.........

Simon's Garden Plaque has twine for hanging in the garden.

A Plaque for Simon's Garden

and on a similar theme....

A Plaque for Daniel's Den

The Plaque for Daniel's Den has been made so it can be screwed onto a door.
