Hello everyone my name is Roslyn and I am passionate about arts and crafts.

 

I started doing dot mandalas in the summer of 2018 as I was off ill from work and was bored and discovered the beauty of the art of Mandalas which has been created by Buddhist Monks using sand for centuries.

Instead of sand I use paint on canvas, stone, wood and pendants using dots of different sizes to create unique and individual pieces for your home or for you to enjoy wearing.

All items can be tailored to individual colour needs. I look forward to creating beautiful items for you all

Mrs Petite Props by AmMia
Work Down Bangor Cell Phone: 07730585763 Website: Petite Props by AmMia

Biographical Info

I guess this is the start of our new book, while our first journey is still unfolding. Petite Props by AmMia is our new venture as a newborn and baby prop vendor and a continuation from the growth and support many have shown us. If you haven’t read our story of how AmMia was born, you can find it here http://www.facebook.com/AmMia/
From our new beginnings.. A local business woman, now friend invited me to join a Mums at Work Networking Group by Sinead Norton. It is full of such strong business women that I initially felt a bit of a fraud but gradually I felt my confidence grow as I was learning and being supported by other woman. It was in this group that I meet Morgan Bonel from Morgan Bonel Photography based in Sligo (http://morganbonel-photography.com/). We started chatting generally and as the conversation progressed she asked would I be able to make a small bear. I have been making props since, my product range growing, but that first bear, will always be very special.
Morgan, who I very much class a friend and an amazing photographer has been so supportive with her time and knowledge with all the advice she has given me, gave me the motivation and encouragement to become a newborn and baby prop vendor, something that I had never given considered or dreamt of but I very much love. The thrill of seeing stunning photographs with props that I have created is such an amazing feeling. Its funny how life can lead you down a path you hadn’t intended but feel I am exactly where I should be. I wouldn’t be here without Mums at Work, Morgan and each and everyone of you for supporting us.
Petite Props by AmMia is still very much in its infancy, but we have our online shop up and running with lots more to come (http://Petitepropsbyammia.bigcartel.com). As AmMia, 20% of all profits are donated to North Down and Ards Down Syndrome Support Group, the rest set aside for my little ceo x

Poise and Presents

Biographical Info

Hello my name is Sharon Kerr and I work from home in Glengormley creating faux floral gift arrangements, my business is called Poise and Presents. Although my business operates online from Facebook and Instagram, I don’t operate from commercial premises but I have collection points within the Newtownabbey and Greater Belfast areas. My most popular arrangements to date have been my unique bespoke wrist corsages and button holes. Wrist corsages are primarily but not exclusively linked to school formals. I create wrist corsages for various occasions such as to compliment your outfit if attending a wedding, gala dinner dance, day at the races, fashion show, to compliment your gown if you are off on a cruise and for your bridesmaids. I like to create pieces of art that you can wear to compliment and not overpower your outfit of choice. Attention to detail is paramount to me and I won’t compromise on quality. Attention to detail is something customers have complimented me on and has been one of the unique selling points that have brought me repeat business and recommendation. When creating button holes and ladies spray I like to create something unique and bespoke that can be used time and time again. You can view a small selection of my corsages at The Sassy Boutique located on the Lisburn Road in Belfast, The Dainty Doll Boutique & Balmoral Dress Hire located on the Upper Lisburn Road in Belfast, the Bridal Elegance Boutique located in Larne and at the Urban Hair Company Salon located here in Glengormley.

Besides the aforementioned arrangements, I like to create gift arrangements that the recipient will remember you and the occasion for. One idea that I had was to create unique faux flower arrangements incorporating vintage handbags. The benefit to this arrangement is a ‘one-off’ statement piece that can be a vocal point in the home and a conversation starter .

Although my wedding was over 20 years ago, I remember how expensive wedding cakes were and indeed are today. It takes great skill to create the perfect wedding cake and the remuneration is justified, but not all couples can afford to purchase such beautiful cakes. For that reason, I wanted to create beautiful dummy cake tiers that are affordable and help couples have some of the vow factor their tight budget cannot stretch to.

 

Since I started Poise and Presents I’ve had a lot of enquiries for bridal/wedding items and this is something I’m working on over the coming months. I have created a couple of faux flower hair pieces and a bridal bouquet all of which have brought great feedback.

 

 

There are two things that are central to my business; attention to detail and great customer service, I’m pleased to say that those are 2 key comments from my customers. I am self-taught in what I do, but I’m pleased to say that some of that artistic flair is genetic with both my maternal and paternal families having worked in creative industries for generations. I do know my limitations and I won’t over promise and under deliver, if I cannot create for you what you would like I’ll certainly do my best to help you find someone who will. If you’d like a little inspiration, take time with a cup of tea/coffee and browse through the photo gallery on my Facebook page I hope you enjoy.

Biographical Info

Hi I am Emma, founder of Learning Labyrinth. I am a mum of  two (boy 10 and girl 2) as well as 2 chihuahuas, a staffy, a rabbit and 2 giant African land snails. I would have home zoo if I had time and money 😅 I love all animals but have an irrational fear of spiders, like many people.

I decided to combine my creative flair with my lifelong love of nature to create nature themed activity boxes for children. I also host a seasonal nature club for children and make bug houses and other nature themed crafts that I sell on my website and at local fairs.  The activity boxes make great gifts for any occasion or as an alternative to magazines.

With increasing technology use encouraging us to stay indoors and the rapid decline and destruction of the natural world across the planet, I hope to inspire children to take more of an interest in nature so that they will grow up to be adults that protect and care for the earth.

Biographical Info

I specialise in bespoke jewellery made from 6000-year-old Irish bog oak and spalted beech.

I make sculptures from the same bog oak.

Also, handmade reclaimed slate home and décor ware.

I am based in Aghalee in a log cabin which I built about 3 years ago.

I love working with wood finding it very therapeutic and being able to create unique pieces. The sculpture is fascinating as I let the wood takes its own shape.

The slate were can be personalised for gifts and even wedding favours.

I can make bespoke pieces of jewellery for special occasions by request.
