    Message In A Tin.

     

    These are our latest little products that can be sent and used for so many different things and occasions. The idea is that you have a short message or word engraved on the little wooden heart and then you write a longer message on the notelet.

    They can be used as an alternative to a card or just a little gift to brighten someones day.

    I always knew that Izzy was a talented artist and all round amazingly creative person but after seeing some gifts she made for her best friends at Christmas, I realised she had a talent I didn't even know about.

    We cut up and painted some bits of wood for her and off she went...later that evening she showed us her creations, to say we were stunned is an understatement! And so, our new collection 'by Izzy' was born.

    Her newest talent, calligraphy.

    Each and every one of her signs has been hand written in black ink, each one being unique. I truly believe in giving opportunities to those who are unaware of how talented they are and sharing their work with the world.

    My dreams when starting Isabella & Louise were for it to become a creative business and space for both of us and finally it's all coming together, it's what I wanted from the beginning and I couldn't be happier.....this is what it's all about.

     

    You can find the by Izzy collection via the tab at the top of our website, I really hope that you enjoy looking through and love it as much as we do.

    Why I started pebble and grey.

    I wanted to engrave words on to pebbles but they are heavy and I wasn't sure how well it would work so I thought, surely we can make some out of wood? We took some of our off cuts from our other products and had a go at carving them and it worked out a million times better than I ever could of imagined.

    So with all the excitement of it all, I decided they deserved their own website. It was something I had been thinking of doing for a while so this seemed like the perfect time to give it a go and so, pebble and grey was born.

    After months of struggling trying to run both websites and everything that goes along with that, it became clear that something had to give. So, after much soul searching and spending many nights lying awake, I decided the best thing was to move all of our products back over to Isabella & Louise and so far it's going pretty well and I'm loving the results. There will be a few tweaks and changes made but overall it will have the same feel that its always had and our products will always be Handcut, Handcarved and Handmade with LOVE.

    I suppose the moral to this story is that you have to give these things a go and it they don't work out, at least you tried.

     

    So I am now working hard behind the scenes to build the business back up, making Isabella & Louise my focus and trying out some new products, some of which will end up on the website, so please WATCH THIS SPACE!
