Coming to the end of the year......

.........the school year, that is!

So now we're into the last few weeks of the Summer term ( although we ain't seen much Summer!) I thought it was time to make a start on this years teacher gifts.
As you probably know we always make our teachers something, they put a lot of time and effort in with our little ones and i like to say Thanks with something more thoughtful and personal than a box of chocs.
So this year going along with our wooden theme i thought i would make them a sign to hang in their classrooms which then led onto a matching pencil pot :)
Hopefully these will go down well as they can be used year after year.
I am also selling these signs in our Ebay shop or if anyone would like a kit to make their own feel free to contact me at
Thanks for looking :)

Happy Jubilee Everyone....

Yes, i know, it's a bit late but what with the school holidays and all the celebrations i have been very busy this week in PoppyToms land and real life so this is the first chance i've had to post!
We've had a great jubilee, Master Maker and Little Lady have loved every minute of it and are now huge fans of the Royal Family :)
We have watched some of the celebrations on TV, had family around and we went to a Beacon lighting Village Party!
What have you been up to?
Alongside all the fun our new Ebay shop has really started to take off so i have had a very busy week preparing, making, dispatching is good! :)
Here's a few pics of what we've been making!

Feel free to pop in for a browse.....
