Fish Totes…

So when I say fish totes, I don’t mean totes for fish but totes of fish. Hand-printed fish on 100% recycled cotton totes to be exact. (Spoiler, one design actually isn’t a fish but a crustacean).

Please let me introduce my three new designs that I released at the start of the month – flounder, mackerel and crab. Which is your favourite?  You can find them listed in my Etsy Shop if you’re interested in reading some hilarious puns.

The beachy shots were taken in South Queensferry (with the assistance of my mum, thanks mum). It’s worth a visit if you’re ever close enough – there’s great independent shops, ice cream parlours, cafes, restaurants, a few pubs and also the lovely beach. It’s where I do all of my sea glass picking and driftwood hunting!

ATLAS – Faux Cow Skull…

(Atlas is listed in my Etsy Shop as he’s looking for a home)

Atlas is an elder of the Galaxy Explorer family; he is strong and reliable and is often turned to for help in times of unrest or confusion. He has been hand sculpted from air drying clay and then carefully painted with a beautiful galaxy. His horns are driftwood and he features a subtle piece of Hematite.

Hematite is the oldest known iron oxide mineral that has ever formed on earth. It is believed by some to calm nerves, boost self-esteem and aid focus. It is thought to provide an all round feeling of personal strength and security.

Atlas is designed to be hung on the wall and therefore has a simple hole for hanging (easy to place on to a picture hook or nail). He will arrive in a tear strip postal box, nestled in tissue paper and securely strapped down – all the packaging is recyclable.

Measurements (Length x Width)
Skull = 5.75″ x 3″ / 14.5cm x 8cm
Skull + Horns = 6.75″ x 7″ / 17cm x 18cm

As the skulls are handcrafted it naturally makes them all unique. However they all belong to one of the four collective families (Forest Creatures, Desert Dwellers, Galaxy Explorers, Ocean Wanderers) but I give them all a personal name to reflect their uniqueness, individuality and personality.

It is also said to rid the home of any negative energy and encourage calming, positive energies back in.

SAGE – Faux Cow Skull

(Sage is currently available for purchase in my Etsy Shop)

‘Sage’ is a forest dweller who has a positive and light-hearted temperament. This is reflected by his dewy glow and the three pieces of green sea glass within his forehead. The number 3 in many cultures is very auspicious and when paired with the colour psychology of green it could be seen as a sign of good fortune!

sage side view.JPG

Sage’s ‘horns’ are actually a pair of ‘tricolour melanocrater’ air plants. Here are my simple recommendations on how to keep them happy and healthy;
– Mist the plants once or twice a week with water, ensuring they have dried off within 4 hours or your plants may begin to rot.
– Place the skull in a bright room, but out of direct sunlight as the plants may get too dry and begin to brown.
I include a care sheet specific to the variety of air plant with each skull for future reference.

Pumpkin Tote…

So at the weekend I launched a new tote design – pumpkins!

The totes are made from 100% recycled cotton and the pumpkins are hand-printed meaning each bag is unique – sometimes there’s a little extra paint here or there.

Pumpkin Leaf Pile.JPG

You can find the pumpkin totes and other designs (strawberry, radish, carrot) in my Etsy Shop – WonderfulWolfCrafts. They retail at £3.50 and I can ship internationally!
