It’s been a couple of years since tying the knot and in that time I’ve realised that crafting decorations and little gifts for people who appreciate the simple things in life is what I want to do for a living. So I’ve launched my very own Etsy shop! It’s very early days and I know there’s a lot of hard work ahead but I’m determined to make it (quite literally).
The name ‘Nutkin Avenue’ has derived from my latest obsession with squirrels (or ‘Nutkins’ as I like to call them). There are hundreds of them living on the leafy, tree-lined avenue just around the corner from our home in the beautiful city of York. And as I spend a lot of my time taking photos of the cute, beady-eyed creatures and running or walking down the avenue, the name just seemed perfect. My other half agreed to it immediately!
At the moment, I am stocking greeting cards, hand-punched vintage paper confetti, hand-cut and stitched vintage book butterflies and framed motivational quotes but I have plans for a very special product range in the pipeline. Just watch this space!
