Coming Soon...
The summer is undoubtedly the best time to throw an epic kid's birthday party in your garden. And especially this summer shade for young skin will be critical.

With so many classmates and friends to invite the cost of a child's birthday can be daunting...but it doesn't need to be!

Over the next fortnight I will be sharing tips for creating a fantastic birthday party on a shoestring in your own backyard!

We will start with a special KraftyMare 'how to' blog on making your very own DIY Tepee tent!

With a minimal spend you can create a fun space for the kids to play 'house' or 'indians' in the shade. We will even cover ways to include the children in this awesome project.

New Year, New Products!
Spring is always a good time to be busy bringing new ideas to life! Over the winter period KraftyMare's dog drying robes have been a popular order - helping owners to dry their pets easily without redecorating their hallways in the process!

With the warmer weather coming, this new design of dog bandana is a fun way to help your pup stand out from the crowd. Clipping easily around the collar, this is a no-tie, non-slip bandana and of course it comes in a huge range of fun fabrics!
'Tis The Season!
With Christmas not far away I have been busy attending craft fairs around Aberdeenshire. Please take a look at my Events page to see where you can find me next!

I really enjoy meeting shoppers and other crafters as we all prepare for a happy Christmas with our families.

There is a real buzz at these fairs and it is great to tell people all about KraftyMare and meet new friends.

Of course I have been busy making lots of lovely new items to sell and am also still taking custom orders for Christmas...
What a pair!
This delightful pair of rats were the beloved pets of an Irish friend. Named Tank and Ray after her favourite gin (Tanqueray!) they were a devoted pair of mischief makers!

So I thoroughly enjoyed embroidering this little frame for her to remember them by when they went on over the rainbow bridge.
Bright & Cheery...
This dour, old pine chest of drawers was winning no beauty prizes and was in danger of being left behind on a house move!

What an amazing difference a little paint and some new knobs made! A fun design and a colourful addition to a new little person's bedroom.
