Happy Days! My Tropical Hummingbird Mobile is appearing in an advertorial in House and Garden Magazine during April and May's editions, it is also appearing in an advert in Yummy Mummy Magazine along side Erin The Brave and Dragons Mobile
I flew accoss the pond to live in the United States of America for a year and took a break from Morrowland Creations
I returned to the UK and reopened Morrowland Creations
I am really pleased to offer some lovely new mobile designs that are made with a mix of hand and machine sewing. This range is a more budget friendly option as they do not take quite as long to make but they are still all handmade and designed carefully to look fun and cute. The same great quality materials are used and the same safety checks are applied to ensure you receive a gift that is made well and with lots of love!
I'm very happy this month because the lovely Homemaker Magazine has included me in their 'Meet The Maker' spot. The magazine is full of wonderful things to make and includes lots of articles on other peoples work and the crafts they do. Very Inspiring indeed! So take a look at issue No. 47 and on page 13 you will find out about Morrowland Creations and my love of Felt. Thanks Homemaker x
Thank you to all my new customers this past year and followers on my social media sites, I appreciate your support.
I'd just like to let you know that I have increased charges this month on most of my items. Although I love to make them all, I also need to support my family as this is not a hobby but my career. All my items take many hours to make and I hope that you will understand why I have had to increase my charges to help reflect some of the time that goes into producing them. I do not charge for my electricity, design, time, toy testing, going to the post office, sourcing materials and many other things involved in running a business and therefore I feel that the costs of my products are still very reasonable. Handmade and unique designs are not always the cheapest option when buying a gift but it does provide the recipient with a piece that has been made with great care and passion. When purchasing an item from me you are getting a design that is not mass produced, is unique and can be customised and often personalised to give a bespoke item. The craftsmanship and quality of my work I hope shines through too when you recieve your gift. By buying handmade you are helping to support small businesses and keep alive our wonderful crafts. Thank you.

I was invited by Alex Joel - Project Officer Enterprising Libraries, to have a stall at the event with some mobiles and plushies on.
