Hello Natalie, Welcome to The Wishing Tree, we currently stock some of your items from Harvey Crafty Cards, and as a local crafter I wanted to find out a little bit about what goes on behind the scenes, what inspires you, where you get your drive, and how long you have been crafting.
Hello Olivia, Thank You for asking me to write a blog post for you, What inspires me ? well there are many things that give me inspiration mainly my children my family and friends, I am a mother of 2 little girls, my 3 1/2 year old just loves fairies and angels, she loves to dress up as  fairies and there has been many times I have had to take Tinkerbell to Tesco’s ! she even had me dressing her 10 month old sister to match , anyway its because of her I have made fairy themed items, as you can see from the picture every house, well actually every skirting board needs one of these you have to let the fairies into your home through there very own door, so don’t leave them locked outside let them in and let the magic begin, they are also available in a  frame they look very pretty in your little girls bedroom   or in any room to add a little colour and sparkle, what about the tooth fairy? these have been a good seller of mine , If you have a son or a daughter that has lost a tooth why not make them feel extra special and leave a little fairy dust sprinkled so they can see the fairy has been for themselves, works really well if you have a little girl or boy that loves their dummy!! I also make wooden plaques this one sums me up completely  I also offer personalisation, so any colour, wording let Olivia know and it will come to life. Something which is a must is this beautiful item its one of my favorites and is also a featured item at the moment on the website.
Where do you get your drive? Well that’s a tough question especially on only 4 hours sleep lol, I get a lot of drive and motivation from fellow Folksy shop owners, getting a sale online is one thing that drives me, the fact that someone loves an item I have made as much as I have loved making it ,there isn’t a better feeling than that really.
How long have I been crafting? Well I have always been crafty, I remember watching my Mum on her sewing machine and wishing I could be just like her one day, I enjoyed all the art and textile classes at school, and have recently taken up sewing again   I have been crafting seriously since I was carrying my 1st little girl, making cards and photo albums I also make Wedding Stationery and have completed 7 weddings of there full stationery this is an area I love and would love to expand further .
Right, enough about me if you haven’t been here  you really need to visit !! lots to see inside this beautiful magical shop xx
Thanks Olivia again for this opportunity and for stocking my items :)
