After I'd posted about the doorstop that I'd made for my daughter a couple of weeks ago, Catherine of Molly Cup Cakes contacted me to ask if I would be happy to make one for her little girls' bedroom. So here are some sneaky peaky bits of the finished version. It's very similar to the one that I made for Zebra-girl...but Catherine asked if I could put a bird at the top of the tree (a cat sits down below!). I love that idea and wish that I'd thought of it myself!
And who might these two little girls be? They had to be on here, because what's the point of having something custom-made if it doesn't feature the lovely little recipients in its pictures! Their names are embroidered beneath them.
And it also includes some of my favourite bits from the original doorstop, like this house.
I was hugely flattered that someone likes something I've made enough to want one for their own home and it is a confidence boost that has come just at the right time, as Ian is currently busy working on making a little online shop for me, so that I might start to - hopefully (that's why the confidence boost was so lovely!) - sell some of the things that I make. In the last couple of weeks I've also had a few unexpected orders from friends-of-friends and friends-of-family, which is really nice, and makes me think that I should put any issues I might have about timing to one side, as things normally have a habit of happening at the right time if they're meant to.
I've now heard that the doorstop has arrived safely and that the little recipients are most pleased with it (thank goodness!). Oh, and if you haven't already visited, then the Molly Cup Cakes shop is definitely worth having a peek into for all its polka-dot hand-painted goodness and lovely Easter goodies.
