Busy with bespoke gifts…

Well the summer seems to have really arrived since I’ve returned home from holiday and I’m loving all this beautiful sunshine! My garden is full of fragrant lavender flowers which seems to be the new garden hotspot for lots of bees and butterflies, they absolutely love it! Our springer spaniel, Bertie is captivated by them and spends most of his time watching them buzz around, chasing them around the garden and trying to catch them…

But the bees aren’t the only ones that have been busy lately…

It’s been pretty full on in the studio and the last few weeks have flown by, with Fridays coming around so quickly – I just can’t keep up! I’ve been working on various freelance projects for Dunelm, as well as designing some new collections, which I hope to launch very soon.

I’ve also had a lot of requests for bespoke gifts which is great. I love working on these projects, ranging from hand drawn illustrations of wedding venues and new homes, to personalised baby prints and wedding mementos. I enjoy the challenge that each one brings and the fact that each piece is unique to that customer and will be something to treasure for years to come. Requests are so varied and I love the diversity of each project – no two prints are the same.

There will soon be a section on my website showcasing the various gifts I’ve created in the past to browse through, but in the meantime, if there’s something special I can design for you, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch – I’d love to help! Just email me in the studio for more information; claire@clairewilsondesigns.co.uk

For now, here’s a couple of snapshots of the work I’ve recently created…

A special animal characters print created for a new born baby boy. It's already proving to be a very popular design with numerous requests for other colourways!

Finally, I just wanted to say that there are lots of new and exciting things happening over the next few weeks here at Claire Wilson Designs so be sure to stay tuned so that you don’t miss out, including a very important celebration…

In the mean time, have a great Monday and…

 

Smile...it's summer!
