The Dorset Art & Craft Show, Dorchester welcomes Lyn Lewis of Wood Craft Creations

I hope you don't judge me, but one of my favourite things to do this time of year is to make a cuppa (milk, no sugar), get some biscuits (just a few..although........given half a chance..... let's be honest!), a DVD and my PJ’s and be all cosy with the heating on.

Oh, I do love a biscuit love-in!  Yeah, OK I admit it- I love the blustery winter nights of November, but on many a day, I wish was somewhere nice and hot like......hmmm, let me think about it......South Africa maybe?

South Africa; a country boasting beautiful scenery and a wide range of wild animals, and the home country of Lyn Lewis of Wood Craft Creations of Dorset.

Here at Purple Bubble Writing, I am so excited about Lyn as a new craft creator and gift maker .  Lyn makes impressively finished, original decoupage jewellery, decoupaged tissue boxes and trinket boxes, all focusing on themes about South African animals and landscapes. Simply put, they make for the perfect gifts.  Also on offer and just in time for Christmas, Lyn offers a wide range of beautifully decorated Christmas candles, all highlighting the stunning art of decoupage. All items are handcrafted at her home in Burton Bradstock near Bridport, Dorset.

As well as the obvious influences of South Africa, Lyn also draws inspiration from vintage and floral themes as seen in the wildlife and countryside here in England.  Creating a naturalistic yet quirky feel with her work by denoting animals, flowers and birds, her designs reflect the beautiful scenery of nature of both South Africa and Britain.  Sourcing all of her materials from the UK and as locally as she can, Lyn’s dream is to devote all of her time to designing, developing and making her decoupage ranges (whilst having a menagerie of animals to look after, a husband and three children!)

Lyn explains that her aim is to: ‘create
a truly crafted collection of stunning decoupage pieces with a focus on detail that makes my decoupage gifts truly unique’.  Price is also an important factor for Lyn who strives to deliver handcrafted decoupage products that are affordable to all and which should last a lifetime.  Here at Purple Bubble Writing, I love, and I mean seriously LOVE, all manner of homemade and handcrafted gifts, especially jewellery, and I am super duper excited about my new friend, Lyn Lewis at Wood Craft Creations.  An original, quirky and fun artist using the French art of decoupage to deliver sensational products for family and friends, alike. What more could you wish for?

Want a chance to see Lyn’s collection of stunning decoupaged items?

Why not pop along to The Corn Exchange in Dorchester, Dorset on Saturday 8th December 2012 and meet Lyn in person.
Entry is free and Lyn will be available between 10am- 4pm to help you find a perfect treat for yourself or a truly unique gift for a friend or loved one.

Bye for now, Hannah xxx
