A large percentage of my work involves creating beautiful memory keepsakes. It is quite a big step for some of my customers to hand over their babies tiny clothes that were from birth age. Or equally as emotional for customers to pass items to me to make a remembrance bear. But I can reassure them all that the Memory item I will create for them will be unique and made to the highest quality with fantastic attention to detail.
People often ask me how long it takes me to make one of my keepsakes. I am unable to give them an exact time, they take hours and hours. I usually tell them that they take as long as it takes to reach perfection!
I really enjoy it when customers see their handmade item for the first time. Emotions do sometimes get the better of them so I always have tissues to hand!
I think special items of clothing deserve to be displayed and not packed away in the loft where no one can appreciate them and the memories that they hold.
I love my job and especially love this part of it.
