Hello! Blog time! I really do enjoy putting my thoughts down and keeping in touch with you all and our blog is a fantastic extension to this.
When thinking about this months blog I realised that there is alot happening this October...behind the scenes we are crazier than ever. We are growing more and more as the months roll by and we have many other designs and opportunities we are working on everyday alongside creating for you.
Also this is the time we are creating many teachers gifts, our limited edition teachers gifts are often scooped up fast and that is such a heart warming feeling. We have heard of parents spotting their gifts being used the following year and that is what we LOVE to hear.
October is also pregnancy and infant loss month and professionally we create many commemorative gifts for bereaved parents but personally at home it is a great opportunity to reflect on how our loss has impacted on us. While we miss our son everyday this month gives us some great moments to commemorate our love for him with our other children in a different way.
Not only this we are already preparing for Christmas and have started a few custom designs for clients. Custom orders are a design challenge at times and also get me thinking outside of the box...a few of your requests have influenced new designs. In the last few weeks we have had requests to create a sixpence into a personalised locket, melt down some gold to a bangle and personalise it, layer some pendants into an intricate design all personalised in their own special way and also mounting special keepsakes into one of our current deigns. All of these get me using my imagination and sadly I can't complete all of them (due to not being set up for casting components or the design functionally not working) but I still enjoy every minute of buiding on your design dreams.
So please any design dream big or small please just ask and let's see where we can take it!
I hope you all enjoy your October whether you are preparing for your kids to start term 4 at school or you are involved in celebrating the life of babies and children who have passed. Next month will be a more informative post but for any behind the scenes info and news follow us on facebook or instagram.
All our love,
Sarah and Michael xx
