Civil Gore Podcast
If you love horror then you need to check out this podcast! Brian and Tim chat the latest horror releases along with amazing interviews and a fantastic sense of humour! You can check out their podcast here or search for it on all good podcast platforms. They also have a merch store, so once you're hooked to the podcast get over there and check out their merch!
Respoake Embroidery Frames
Darren at Respoake is a true craftsman, producing beautiful custom embroidery frames made entirely out of repurposed oak. You can see the love and care that goes into making every single one of these frames and I'll definitely be stocking up on some frames for myself soon. On top of that, his customer service is top notch! You can visit his store here.
Foxglove and Freesia
I was introduced to Foxglove and Freesia when I saw a beautiful gift box with some handmade decorations which I sent to my nan to cheer her up during the Christmas lockdown! Faye is such a talented person making beautiful items for your home and also using repurposed materials. I'll definitely be going back to get some of her wildflower gift tags. Her customer service is also brilliant and I highly recommend, especially for unique and interesting gifts for the person who thinks they have everything! Pop along to her Etsy store here.
Vicki at Citra Dolls not only shares my name, but he's also incredibly talented at making totally unique, one of a kind dolls! I'm constantly astounded by her skills. From their heads to their clothing, they are such detailed, bespoke pieces and I can't wait to own one myself one day! Not only does she create these amazing dolls, but she also crochets, so you can sometimes find fashion accessories also handmade on her website - if you're lucky, and they haven't already sold! Any doll collector should visit her shop immediately because these unique pieces do not hang around! You can visit Citra Dolls here.
Art by Kerry Hogg
Kerry is a self-taught artist from Fife, but I can assure you, she is no amateur! Kerry has a strong sense of her own style and often incorporates her Scottish heritage. Her paintings and sketches range from beautiful florals to clever use of mixed media, and often with a great sense of humour! If you're looking for a beautiful picture for your home, you can visit Kerry's Etsy store here. She's also now doing pet portrait commissions!
Claire Mort Artist
Claire is an award winning textile pop artist - and you can see why! Her colourful embroideries are perfectly formed down to the last detail, (and there are MANY details!). Claire is a huge inspiration and I love seeing what she comes up ith next. I ordered some beautiful cards with her prints on them and am now saving pennies to buy an original piece - it would be an honour to hang her work in my studio! You can visit Claire's Etsy here, or search on Instagram to see what amazing projects she's currently working on.
Luna Celeste is run by the wonderfully talented Natalie. Initially selling wish jars and self-care items, she has now gone on to create her own stylish and beautiful gemstone jewellery. As well as her stunning silver jewellery collection, you can also find charms and bracelets, for everything from anxiety to creativity. Her website is also full of useful information on gemstones, and as a customer myself I can say that her customer service is top notch - everything arrives beautifully wrapped and is always made with love and care! You can visit Luna Celeste here.
Rise n Design
I've watched Amy go from strength to strength with what started as her little business! Recently finished at art college, Amy creates beautiful and unique resin designs. As soon as I found her account on twitter I knew she was super talented, and with the amount of awards she has won since then, I was clearly correct! You may think you have seen resin homeware before, but you haven't seen anything like this. Always beautifully crafted with so much care and attention, Amy has unique and contemporary designs that would make interior designers drool! She now has a beautiful website, and if you are looking for unique, arty accessories for your home, you can visit it right here.
