A little about me

Hello! I hope you find all the sparkly joy you would ever want here. I have been embroidering and making ever since I can remember, I did do all the sewing and craft badges at Brownies and Guides so I was obviously hooked from the start. I was able to pursue this at University, where I studied Textile Design specialising in Embroidery at Falmouth University.

After finding my feet in freelance work, I felt I needed to create something that gave me a lot of joy. So I looked to my favourite season, Christmas, and started creating sparkly ornaments.

These weren't the usual tree ornaments, I looked in my store cupboards, in my fridge and at fabulously kitsch 50s tree decorations. I wanted to make the mundane marvellous and bring a disco feel to daily life! I have continued to look to the supermarkets and kitsch Americana for inspiration.

Making the Mundane Marvellous

When I am not making, which I love to do, I am usually watching far too much tv and testing out new gins. I love collecting, I am a bit of a magpie and I can't leave a vintage sequin garment behind and there will never be an embroidery book that I don't look at, even though I already have quite a few!

If you don't see your favourite drink in my ornaments I am always happy to take on commission requests, it is so fun finding out what other people love too!

Every one of my decorations is handmade to order, this means it can take up to 2 weeks to send them out. I will of course always aim to get them to you as soon as possible. If you need it for a specific date please contact me and I will try my hardest to make that happen.
