Miniature felted hand stitched and embroidered illustrated book created for people who love to collect and keep special items to treasure.

Fully illustrated in colour, this little book also is supplied with a miniature magnifying glass to make that perfect gift for book lovers, readers, teachers and other special occasions or to support mental health awareness and healing emotions. This item can be personalised with a short name or signed by the author.
Not long after my youngest child was born, I began to feel extremely fatigued. This was put down to looking after a baby and two older children. However, I later discovered that I was actually anaemic and have hypothyroidism. It took some getting used to, but explained the tiredness, although I didn’t (and still don’t) like the regular blood tests and taking prescription tablets – for life (and remembering to take them).
In 2006 I began a degree as a mature student and was diagnosed with Meare’s-Irlen’s Syndrome. Up to that point I’d suffered debilitating migraines from the age of 18 sometimes lasting three or four days. The medication I took was withdrawn from sale and so I began searching for answers, trying out changes in diet; giving up caffeine and cheese. My eldest daughter at this time also started suffering from migraines and we chanced upon blue lenses helping. I then went to Cheltenham for an extensive assessment with a specialist and discovered that I didn’t need prisms in my glasses, but an Irlens filter.
After successfully completing my degree wrong-handed (suffered an accident on my dominant hand in Dec 2009 and had to learn to write and type with my other hand), I discovered I had dyslexic tendencies too when tested at the university. In 2013, I found myself signed off work with severe work-related stress and explored the idea of working from home. This began by using my art as a therapy and set up a Facebook page and my business in December 2015, selling illustrations, paintings and pyrography craft items such as inspirational plaques and keepsake hearts.
In December 2017, I had my first children’s illustrated book published and continue to sell book-related handcrafted items and giftware including my miniature embroidered, handbound books, felted corner bookmarks, calligraphy poetry, story blocks and learning resources to encourage young people and children to read and enjoy literature.
