ohnorachio – Guest Blog
A quick blog about my guest blog over on ohnorachio As you all know, I have blogged alongside my business for a little while now, so when I had the opportunity to guest blog for Rachel of OHNORACHIO, Designer-Maker of pretty things, Letterer, Creative & Blogger (as it states in her Profile) I jumped at the chance. I really admire the way that Rachel blogs and her photos are just as engaging as her content.
I was a bit nervous about how to put myself across, but after a gallon of tea, and a few tips from Rachel, I am really pleased with the result. It has really helped me to think about what my business is about and I feel like I have come far enough to be able to share tips with others.
I have been working hard to get my product photography right. Featured is a photo of my personalised wooden bunting which has just been given as a new baby gift. I love these colours!
I hope you enjoy reading my post as well as the other guest blogs that Rachel has shared while she is away. I particularly love the post for the Blueberry and Acai Smoothie – delish!
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!

New Extra Large Wooden Memory Box!
This month I completed a bespoke order for a customer who wanted a larger size wooden memory box than those I currently offered. It was so successful I am now offering this size wooden memory box.
This memory and keepsake box is made from pine and has a hinged lid. The grain shows through the painted design which gives a lovely effect. The box is hand painted and then finished with a wipeable clear gloss.
The new size of the box is 27cm x 27cm x 14cm so is quite deep and perfect for not only new baby keepsakes but also mementoes of a child’s life as they grow up.
The price starts at £52.00 and the price is dependant on the amount of detail you would like. As always my trademark Popsyclunk wooden letters are added to personalise your memory box.
This “Chloe” box was for local collection, so I am yet to send one in the post. I can confirm at time of order but I expect UK P&P to be around £10-15
Please enquire through the contact form if you are interested in ordering a memory box or any other Popsyclunk personalised product. I have slots from mid April onwards and my lead in time from then will be around 3 weeks.
