Custom Dog Breed Ceramic Hearts And Mother's Day For Handmade Monday


Valentine's Day has come and gone... I got to work on some lovely personalised gifts this year and really enjoyed the romance of it all! Most popular were my ceramic love quote hearts and this week i've got some new heart designs to show you... they're not listed in my shops yet so you are the first to see them! :)


Custom Dog Breed Ceramic Hearts

I've had in mind for a while to do some ceramic hearts for dog lovers and after trying out a few ideas i liked the simplicity of these coloured dog breed silhouette designs best.... i hope you like them too!


The customer gets to choose the breed and colour they would like and the hearts can be personalised with a name/quote/message on the front or the back - i had thought to list them with a range of doggy quote options but in the end i realised it would be simpler just to let customers tell me what they would like, i will include some suggestions with the listing though.




They are priced £7 and i'll be listing them for sale this week on my website, Etsy shop and other outlets.



Mum In A Million Personalised Ceramic Heart


I know we've a little way to go 'till Mother's Day but my thoughts are full of spring just now so i couldn't resist painting this cheery heart - the perfect pressie for a special Mum :)



A name/short message can be painted on the back for a personalised touch.


As with my other hearts the price is £7 and it will be available soon from the usual places.


'Every Little Thing Is Going To Be Alright' Heart


Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' inspired this design. Its a heart warming song full of hope and i thought these well known lyrics would make a lovely keepsake.



As with my other hearts it can be personalised with a name or message on the back and will be available soon from the usual places priced £7.

The perfect note to end on today as the sun has shone after weeks of rain/sleet and howling gales and a sense of hope has definitely been in the air - lots of smiling faces about the place... i hope that you've had a reason to smile today too :)

I'm off for my weekly trip to Handmade Harbour now... looking forward to this week's crafty tales!

Thanks for stopping by! x

  1. Your new makes are lovely. I think the dog hearts will be really popular with dog lovers (they sooo love their dogs) but I have to say my favourite has got to be your Bob Marley heart. I think it's a brilliant idea and you could do so many different lyrics. Your definitely onto a winner. Have a wonderfully crafty week.

  6. Sometimes we sing Three Little Birds at my school. Hearing the whole school singing it can make me go a bit tearful. Can be a bit awkward. I am sure the dog hearts will be a big success.

  10. Love the dog hearts - they would make lovely doggie bling for dog's collars too! (I thought I'd left this comment last night but it doesn't seem to have made it!)
