Butterfly Memorial Letters: A Tribute to Malayeka

When we returned from our 'holiday' we were pleasantly surprised to see that one of our customers had emailed us some photos of the Memorial Letters we had made, as a bespoke request, for her little girl's grave in March this year. 

You may have seen the previous blog Bespoke request for Angel Baby Memorial Letters.

Wow!! I was obviously pleased to see that the letters worked well and looked lovely, but was absolutely amazed at the stunning tribute Julie had created for Malayeka. 

It's So beautiful, I wanted to share the pictures with you.

Thanks again Julie for sharing the photos of something that is so personal and special to you. x

We're back...!!

Wow, it's certainly been a while.  I'm actually surprised at how long it's been since I last updated this blog! How time escapes us....

After the website being temporarily closed between July and September we are now back up and running and ready for the pre-christmas stampede, so you will be hearing a lot more from me! 

We have lots of exciting new products to add to the website and tell you about as well as Facebook giveaways and pre-Christmas promotions.

So sorry it's been a while, but we'll be back in touch again...SOON. x

Bespoke Request for Angel Baby Memorial Letters

I was approached by a customer with a very special and unique request - to create some memorial letters that spelt her angel baby's name - that she could display on the grave. 

Our MDFs letters weren't up to the job as they would be no good outside, so we used acrylic.  This also meant we could add spokes to the bottom of the letters, to secure them in the ground.

The result - these chunky, pretty metallic pink letters, which will reflect the light, decorated with butterflies and sparkling gems.  We are yet to test the accessories against the elements, so we'll see how we go.  I'll post a picture of the letters on the grave when I have one.

If you are interested in something similar please feel free to get in touch with me via  to discuss your idea or requirements.

Wooden Letters - Not just for kids names

Wall letters can be used to spell pretty much anything you want and do not have to be limited to a child's name.  Here's one that a customer recently requested, 20cm white letters with butterflies spelling "Zzz" to go above her daughters bed.  I'm sure it's made a gorgeous accessory to the nursery.  Other ideas include "dream" "sleep", "princess" - you can let your imagination run wild.

Another customer requested Story Time in the Mirror chain letter wall letters and another customer wanted a phrase from a nursery rhyme in 5cm acrylic letters.  These are just some ideas, but really the options are endless.  You can choose any design or any type of letter to make any word or words that you desire.  See links for more information and prices:

Wooden wall letters - the chunkier, the better

Well, that's what we think anyway.  Whether you're using the letters to spell a child's name on a bedroom or nursery wall or a word to decorate a space in the hallway or living room, using chunky wooden letters will give extra impact making them stand out even more on the wall.  A much more effective finish!

All of our wooden letters are made from 12mm thick mdf.  This is twice the thickness of most other sellers, but having created and compared the two sizes, I can reassure you that these look much better.

They can be made thicker, but it becomes much more costly to buy; make and post - however, as always, we'd always be happy to try and acommodate bespoke requests.

Visit the website to see our complete range of beautiful handmade wooden wall letters or for bespoke requests (any word, phrase or design) please get in touch.

** Addition: February 2012 - We are now offering both 6mm and 12mm thicknesses to give our customers the choice.  So if you are feeling the pinch and want stunning looking letters for less - check out our website and choose the 6mm thickness.

January's Most Unusal Names for Boys and Girls

Creating personalised gifts and keepsakes gives an interesting insight into some of the more unusual names out there.  We thought we'd share with you, each month, some of the lovely and unusual names we come across both for boys and for girls.

January's most unusual girls names included Ellicia and Larissa, with the most popular names being Ella and Lilly (which was a surprise as Ava is usually a firm favourite each month!).

For the boys, we loved Zayan and Cassius. Jack (much like Ava) is one of the favourites for boys and was the most popular name for us in January.

Different Types of Box Frames

There are really only two different kinds of box frames that you can buy and it's important to know the difference as it will have an effect on the finished look.

Deep Rebate Frame
 The first type of frame is a deep rebate frame.  These are made from one piece of wood (a deep rebate moulding) rather than having a box fixed to the back of them.  Not only do these frames have a modern and contemporary feel, but because they are made from one piece of wood you have the option of either hanging them to the wall or leaving them to to stand on a shelf or windowsill.  They look great from the side, so if you are hanging it from a wall you won't need to worry about the side profile.

Box Style Frame
The second type of frame is the box frame - these use a standard moulding for the frame face and have a box fixed to the back of the frame.  The key advantage to this type of frame is that you can get a greater depth, giving you more flexibility as to what you can frame.  For the deep rebate frames, choice is very limited for all aspects: colour, style and depth, as there are not a lot of deep rebate mouldings on the market.

We still use contemporary mouldings for our box style frames and the box is only visible from the side view.  Because of how these are made we can also look into bespoke requests for our customers (something we can't do for the deep rebate frames) - whether the request is for a different colour frame or different dimensions - including depth, we can usually help.

Visit our website to see our complete range - and please feel free to get in touch with any bespoke requests.

Thanks for reading :o)
