Memory Boxes and Suitcases!

Memory Boxes and Suitcases – My busy week

It’s been busy busy at Popsyclunk this week.  I’ve been nursing a poorly Popsyclunker which although not nice,  has given me  some time look forward  to the future and a new product for Popsyclunk.

I’ve been making  Memory Boxes  for a while now, and as well as the wooden square boxes with a lift off or hinged lid I already offer, I had the idea of offering a wooden suitcase – style box. I love the idea of a mini suitcase to keep all of a little person’s special keepsakes in. It ties in with the idea of their journey or travels through life. I worked on the idea of monogrammed suitcases from the early to mid 20th Century where people used to have their initials  etched or stitched onto the side and of course wanted to give it a Popsyclunk twist of fresh colours that give it a modern feel. Each one could be personalised with the child’s initials. The little wooden tag has been hand painted with the words “Rosie’s Travels” and the  little balloon shows her date of  birth.

The suitcase is 17 x 23 x 9cm so a perfect size to send through the post too! I made my first suitcase for Rosie, my best friend Clunk’s little girl, for her birthday. Here she is looking very pleased with it. It travelled all the way back to Australia with her.

The   ” My Little Wooden Suitcase” will be handmade to order and will be £24 plus £3.75 P&P . They will be listed in my Etsy Shop soon. In the meantime if you’d like to place an order for one please contact me through my website here or my Facebook Page. They are perfect as a personalised birthday present, new baby gift, christening gift or maybe start thinking abut Christmas ! Eeek! After all, its less than 100 days away!

I hope you’ve had a lovely week, I’m hoping next week will be less about illness and more about painting!

 

Ooh and I forgot to mention the giveaway to win an “Amelia” name plaque on my Facebook Page. So if you have an Amelia in your life, get over there before Midnight on 27th September and you could be in with a chance!

Wooden Memory Boxes for Twins!

Wooden Memory Boxes for Twins!

I recently was asked to make two memory boxes for twin sisters. What an honour. A lovely lady who with her partner had been asked to be godparents, got in touch to see if I could make two boxes for a Christening that took place at the beginning of February, and here is the result. Complementing memory boxes that celebrate the individuality of the girls but also used corresponding pastel colours to show their strong link as twin sisters!I think they’re going to fill their memory boxes with some glorious memories!
