Family name frames

This family tree picture frame with names is a beautiful keepsake, and is one of our most popular family name frames. The background has a vintage yet modern feel to it with an Urban city design. It has warm and natural tones in the style of background. Hence, you are able to see neutral and green hues coming through. Therefore, the colours are not over powering. The general design of the background has a city scene. This includes a bridge over a large river with modern buildings on either side. This type of frame makes ideal family tree gifts for grandparents. Hence, it also suits as a grandchildren family tree frame.

This frame will be available to purchase on our website shortly. Or you can Contact Us if you would like to purchase it directly.

The wooden tiles used to make up this customized family tree really stand out on this design. Customers have previously commented as to how particular I must be choosing wooden tiles as they match so well. Hence, this design is suitable for many occasions including family tree gifts for grandparents. Clients have used the word Grandparents for their grandchildren family tree frame. Sometimes in order to make the design more appealing to the eye I add in the word (Family). It links the customized family names perfectly and makes the design easier to read too.

I also have used little rustic hearts to the corner of some family names to finish them off. To give the design a more modern feel, I have used small little mirrors. I have then glued rustic hearts in the centre.

Baby keepsakes personalised

This baby keepsake is personalised with the baby name. I have glued animal buttons on to a cute wooden tree embellishment. I chose various types of animal buttons made up of elephant, cheetah, fox, racoon, lion, zebra and giraffe buttons. Finally placing a rustic heart on either side of the tree stump and put a lion button in the centre. Perfect for the little boy who has a jungle inspired nursery. At the top of the design I have incorporated the baby’s date of birth. I have divided the date up using little rustic hearts to separate the numbers.

Personalised baby gift frame

In this particular personalised baby gift frame, I have used seven wooden tiles. Rather than over crowding the design I recommend using between seven to nine wooden tiles in this particular baby name frame.  I stuck the wooden tree on to a blue and white stripe background. Hence, this compliments the safari animal jungle themed buttons perfectly on this personalised baby gift frame. See all our newborn baby girl presents on our Personalised Baby Frames page.

Personalised baby birth frames

Finally, to complete all my designs on this birth frame, I finish off with a handmade button in the bottom right-hand corner.

Craft Fair Tips And Tricks

My first craft fair experience

This blog post (Craft Fair Tips And Tricks) is to tell you my experience of doing a Craft Fair for the first time! On the 25th November 2018, Rush Craft Fair (Dublin Ireland) had their annual craft fair. It was held in Saint Maur’s GAA Club. There were over 50 stalls, ranging from a wide selection of tasty food to handmade crafts. This blog post will give you many craft fair display tips and ideas.

Craft fair preperation, get a table!!

You can read our blog post on Craft Fair Tables.

The key to anything in your life is preparing. That famous phrase springs to mind (If you fail to prepare then prepare to fail). First of all, I had to take into consideration is the fair an indoor or outdoor event? The fair I attended was indoor, so I did not have to worry about staying warm. It is essential to have a table to put your products on. Make sure your table that you are going to display your goods on is sturdy and secure. There is no point in having one that will collapse with the weight of a number of items. I purchased my table for €20 in Argos but once again my husband stepped in and made it sturdier. (see Craft Fair Tips And Tricks at the end of this blog for complete list of items required).

Craft fair display steps

Have a look at our blog post on Craft Show Displays for more ideas.

I make personalised name frames and handmade cards. Therefore, I wanted to make sure my one of a kind frames could be seen. Thank God my husband loves DIY as I asked him to make me a display in the form of steps to showcase my products. If you take anything from this blog (Craft Fair Tips And Tricks), please buy or create display steps, they are vital. Its vital all your products can be seen from far away (don’t have them laying down flat on the table, this will kill your chances of being seen).

You need boxes, lots of them

Believe me, that few hours before the fair will fly in and then it’s time to put your sales face on. Also take in to account how are you going to transport your products? Do you need to get boxes, I find Ikea or Mr Price fantastic for boxes. How are you going to transport your boxes from the car to your stall? Have you got a trolley that will save you making a few trips to the car! Another alternative is suitcases with wheels.

Getting your brand out there

Make sure you have a sign with your craft name on it. This is vital to having your brand name seen, and getting your name out there. Make a banner that is big and can be seen from far away, then put it in front of your stall at eye level. Thus, people can see it and it will be in the background in photos. When people share photos from the craft fair on Facebook, your banner will probably be seen as well.

How to display products at a craft show

Just to give you an idea, I spent a few weeks designing and making products to display at the fair. One of the biggest things to take from this blog (Craft Fair Tips And Tricks), it is essential to have a wide selection of products. I also advise you to have a range of prices too. Another little tip I will give you, make sure all of your prices are visible! It can be intimidating to keep asking someone; how much is this and how much is that? The week before the event make sure you have a trial set up so you fly through it on the morning of the fair.

Put your phone away, give out business cards

The day of the fair do not sit on your phone. Make sure you smile if someone approaches your stall but do not hop on them in pure desperation for a sale. Have your business cards at the ready in order to hand them out. Just because someone does not buy from you on the day does not mean that they are not a potential customer. Please make sure, if you have a stall at a craft fair, to have visible price tags on all of your items. This definitely helped to draw potential clients to my stall.

Craft Fair Tips And Tricks

  1. Table and table cover cloth (that covers right down to the ground on front)
  2. Display stand for your products
  3. Bubble wrap, newspapers, bags
  4. Price tags, cello tape, scissors, money bag, change, pens
  5. Receipt book (don’t forget to take peoples emails!!)
  6. Note book (take notes on the day, for your next craft fair!!)
  7. Business cards, (hand them out when people are passing by)
  8. Food and water

Conclusion

On the day just be yourself, smile and enjoy the experience! (and take notes) Good luck
