New Extra Large Wooden Memory Box !

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.

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!

New name plaques and a handmade wedding!

Name plaques & a handmade wedding!!

A belated Happy New Year to everyone. So far in January I have been birthday planning and children’s party making, nursing poorly little people and also planning for the year to come in Popsyclunk. Exciting times as I can show you this lovely rose design on a wooden name plaque I made for baby Rosie. I have also got a few new product designs in the pipeline. Aside from my popular bespoke wooden memory boxes, I have an idea to use boxes of a different kind which could be used as wedding props with a hidden use, to complement your wedding day! If you are getting married this summer why not contact me and I might be able to share this idea for your wedding day and I’ll be offering the new product at a reduced price to the a pair of guineapigs who gets in touch via my website. The catch? Just allow me to use photos of the product for Popsyclunk. If you are interested and particularly if you are planning a handmade wedding, please get in touch!! If there’s a few people that get in touch then I may have to draw someone out of a (top) hat!

 

Birthday Week blog!

It’s been a busy week. On Thursday I launched my new look website, all thanks to http://janeswebsitehelp.co.uk/  It has a fresh new look which I think reflects the Popsyclunk style and customer profile. image

It was also my birthday and people who know me know how much I love music. My lovely hubby gave me the George Ezra Album “Wanted on Voyage” . I didn’t hint, honest! It’s brilliant. Think Ray Lamontagne meets Paolo Nutini but with his own special gravelly-voiced twist. Apparently written on his travels across Europe, “Budapest” and “Barcelona” are my favourites.

On Friday I went to the School for Creative Startups MADE Fringe Festival talk by Doug Richard in Sheffield.  He talked about a product or business being able to solve a problem. I’m building up a style for my memory boxes which allows the customer to input into the design of a beautiful wooden box and which moves away from the traditional and more to the contemporary.

To have a beautifully designed and painted memory box is as important as the memories that it will be filled with. In a world full of  tablets and phones and digital everything we sometimes just need to run our fingers over a photograph or a special object that evokes a particular memory and be reminded of the ones we love.
