Hi my name is Donna, and I love to create unique gifts, cards and home decor using fabric and needle-felting techniques. I am very lucky to live in the beautiful South West of England, where I enjoy going for long walks with my partner, and shorter walks with my children! When we are out walking along the Devon and Cornwall coastline we often collect interesting bits of driftwood to incorporate into my work, I find being out in the natural world a great inspiration.
I’ve been making things for as long as I can remember,I’m never happier, than when I’m being creative. I have tried all sorts of crafts over the years, but I’ve come to really enjoy experimenting with fabrics and needle-felting and combining them with other techniques such as crochet. I love spending time looking through my stash of craft materials to find just the right button or beads to finish a piece, I find combining colours and textures exciting. I devote time and care to creating each thing I make, sprinkling a little love into the creations, so that the recipient receives a truly special one-of-a-kind item.
Over the years I have successfully sold to friends and family, at craft fairs, and online. After taking a break from selling my crafts in recent years, due to other commitments, my new venture in spring of 2016 was to open an Etsy shop.
I have a Facebook page where I post works-in-progress and updates from the shop, along with photos from walks and frequent baking sessions. There’s also customer reviews and information about special offers, so pop over and like the page.
You can also find me on Instagram and Twitter and Pinterest!
A new venture for 2017 has been to start blogging on my website http://www.polkadotcrafts.com so please pop over to have a read and find out more about what's going on behind the scenes.
