My name is Claire and I am a part-time SAHM to Thomas who is 17 months old. Three days of my week are stuck in an office but the rest of my time is spent with Tom and trying very hard to promote my handcrafted gift business.
I have always been creative from a very young age and love nothing more than making something special and unique for people. Although I have a product range, I specialise in creating bespoke gifts for people and am always up for a challenge.
Most of my products are made using recycled or reclaimed materials and I try to use recycled packaging where possible. I believe in trying to make my business as environmentally friendly as possible.
As well as making handmade cards and natural bath products I love to decorate boxes, sew bags and toys, create scrapbooks, memory pages and layouts, make jewellery and generally create. If youâ€™re looking for something unique then just ask. Iâ€™m sure between us we can come up with that perfect present.
I pride myself in a very high level of service and a quick turnaround. I offer FREE no obligation quotes and idea briefs to all my customers and never ask for payment until you are satisfied that the item you are ordering is exactly what you want. There are times I can even offer you a 24 hour turnaround and will always squeeze you in where I can if your on a quick deadline.
I have recently closed my website but I also blog most of my creations here http://clairemackaness.blogspot.com/
this is where I place my projects as and when they are completed.
I also have a facebook group on which I add all my cards to the gallery http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group ... 9356561915
