Beatrix Potter–The End

And this is the end, really… And like the others, so much fun to make. There’s something very calming when making these ornaments. At least to me there is. I kind of lose myself in the process and before I know it time has flown by without me.

I also wanted to do something for my customers as a gesture of thanks, so I made up these Easter themed gift tags. Many years ago a local needlework shop closed it’s doors, that was a shame because it was such a great place to go and just be. When Dawn was closing, like all stores that close, they want to move the last of the inventory.

One of the things I bought was a cache of brass coloured charms. In that bag were some that I would not normally buy, but they came with the bulk of charms. They were crosses and cupids. I’ve kept them all this time and now I’m using them to add a touch to the gift tags. With each ornament they buy, they can choose a gift tag….The digital post card art, I found on Etsy, what a great source for everything. Here they are.

And this is how all the ornaments look on the new stand I made for them. At the beginning of the year I posted that I needed a stand for other times in the year for the ornaments I might make, and from that came this. Very easy to do, add a little trim of boxwood vines and it makes a pretty display I think. Tuesday they are off to the shop.

  1. What a fabulous group these little characters make.Your display stand works perfectly. Doll making is such a nurturing activity I think.It takes me directly to my "child self",where play is key!

  2. Absolutely delightful! I especially like the squirrels... something innately appealing about them. The free gift tags are a great idea.
