'Folksy', 'DaWanda' and 'All Things Original'...

Whilst Etsy will remain the first stop for a wider range of abigailbrown goodies...I'm now set up on Folksy and DaWanda...and nearly...very nearly...on All Things Original.
Certainly easier to shop from Folksy and avoid the confusing exchange rates!



I had a lovely commission this month to make a little puffin...obviously with a specified species this had to look as closely like a puffin as possible...
...I think it manages it!
It's the first of a new series of work I'm starting which looks at specific bird species...any bird fanatics stay tuned!! Im becoming a little bird geek learning all about the different kinds of birds, I think it's going to keep me in my Bird phase for some time!

Handmade Hellos!

I am super behind on this posting!!...Earlier this year I worked on a project with Hello Lucky! and Chronicle Books, contributing to a craft book which shows you step by step how to make a range of beautiful cards, designed by a host of talented greetings card makers.

Follow the link to the Chronicle Books website to take a peek..
and see my contribution, a New Baby card, below...


The lovely Isabelle, founder of French decal company 'Poisson Bulle' invited me to design a series of wall decals and adhesive borders.
I can't reveal too much until they are launched in the new year but can afford a sneaky snippet and a link for you to check out Poisson Bulle's existing range...

Christening canvas

I haven't posted these up before...but have been commissioned a few times to make personalised wall art for babies nurseries.
This is a recent piece for a little girl...please contact me if you are interested to know further information. Sizes, images, colours and names can all be specified...made entirely to order.

New Wall Art

Mostly these are sold now...all except the little blue bear, which can be seen in my shop...but they looked so cute as a bunch I wanted to post them up for viewing.
I have already duplicated 1 of them, and can be commissioned to make any further if requested...just email.

To view all properly please visit my etsy shop
and check through the sold items.

Little Foxens

A new little creature made it into the world in December...he's been a big hit and so far 6 little fellows are out there causing mischief.
My new little addition to the creature range is Foxen.
He measures 23cm from nose tip to the end of his body
Red seems to be the favourite colour choice, it's a beautiful 70's curtain fabric...very special in itself...but I think he's equally cute in blue tones.
As with all work he is available through commission...just email.

Made08 Brighton

Gosh golly...what a long time since I made it on here to post anything.
All due to the fact that so much has been happening!
I exhibited this year at Brighton's Craft fair- 'Made08'...it was a wonderful success and so lovely to be with the work and meet people who felt touched by it...it was really delightful to see peoples faces light upon discovering the stand...so a huge thank you if you came.
