The Story of Morrowland Creations

Hello

my name is Jo Morrow I am the creator of Morrowland Creations, welcome to my website! 

 

Morrowland is the wonderful place I go to (in my head) when I have my creative hat on, it's the land where all my characters come from and were born!                                                                                                                               

My adventure began when I started creating my own range of Superhero soft toys for fun. I took inspiration mainly from the natural world of animals around us. So you will find characters on my site such as Lady Bug Bug and Flutter Boy.  I loved the idea of hanging them up and creating little scenes and giving them each a personality. My passion for colour and my love of felt fit perfectly with the idea of making nursery mobiles from the characters as they are fun, colourful and cute, a delight to a young child's senses!

 

My work now includes animals and flowers which can be seen in Name Signs, Wall Hangings, Mobiles, Garlands and Home Accessories. I try my best to include a heavy dose of quirkiness to help bring a smile to people's faces!

 

 

Backgroundy stuff 

 

I began sewing by hand when I was around 6-7 years old, I loved to make clothes for my dolls by hand more than I did playing with them. I got my first sewing machine not much longer after that. In 1996 I graduated with a BA (hons) in Visual Arts and in 1998 a PGCE in Art and Design. Since then I have worked in schools and in a film archive and now have 2 beautiful children that never seem to stop eating!

 

I'm obsessed with colour, love 70's rock and disco music and have a leaning towards the quirky side!

 

I love creating items that bring a smile to other peoples faces and I hope you enjoy my work as much as my children do. 

 

 

About my products and service

 

At Morrowland Creations Shop you will find beautiful, lovingly made, quality hand crafted mobiles and toys for your loved ones. Mobiles are great for babies helping to stimulate their senses, they make perfect gifts for new arrivals and great baby shower gifts for expectant mums. Mobiles are not just for babies though, they bring a lovely touch of colour and fun to any room and can be great seasonal decorations they could even become a modern family heirloom. I use fantastic quality materials including wonderful 100% wool felt which gives amazing colour choices.  My products carry a CE mark, giving you the reassurance that your purchase has been thoughtfully designed with safety in mind.

I can create custom made toys and mobiles to match your room décor or bedding. If you do not leave your colour choices then I will create the item in the colours seen on the listing. If you don't see what you want then please contact me, I will be happy to design something for you and provide you with a quote but please note this service will increase the turnaround times. 

Custom made wood frames are available in 2 styles - 3 arms with a wooden cylinder in the middle and 4 arms with a wooden cube in the middle. There are a choice of colours and finishes for both options please see photographs for colour options in the product details section. The 3 finishes are Glitter Sparkle Gold, Glitter Sparkle Silver and clear. All paints and finishes are toy safe.

All mobiles come with a metal hook in the top to attach a ribbon for hanging. You could add your own crib clamp attachment and wind up music box but please be aware that mobiles are not toys and need to be positioned out of reach above the cot. Please make sure clamps fit your cot securely. To prevent possible injury by entanglement remove the mobile when the child starts trying to get up on it's hands and knees in a crawling position.

Please feel free to leave feedback and suggestions on how I can improve my shop. You can contact me with any questions via e-mail at: morrowlandcreations@gmail.com or fill in the form on the Contacts Page

 

I would also love to see the mobiles and toys in their happy homes and receive your thoughts on my products and services.
 

I look forward to working with you to achieve your perfect gift. 
Thanks, Jo
