Maxi Designs ~ Handmade

I have a passion not only for writing, but for designing and creating items by hand. I'm professional trained as an Interior designer FdA with Distinction. My other strengths are in the needle work area, which I'm fine tuning with a seamstress course at present. But I also like working with beads, Jewellery making, drawing, and in I love particularly making my own gifts.

Anyone who knows me personally, will know that I've always got a design project of some sort in the making!

And for the first time, I'm going to share some of these projects with you..... it's very nerve raking, because it's quite a personal thing, an item you've made by your own hand. But I hope you enjoy seeing them, half as much as, I've enjoyed making them!

I thought also, I would do some design mood boards too. Of styles, designs or even unusual designs or items, which have inspired me. And maybe they will inspire you along the way too...

Little Cheeky Monkey, Cross Stitched, Birthday Card.

Little Cheeky Monkey, 
Cross Stitch, 
Birthday Card.

Hand made by Maxi Designs, Romance Author Maxi Shelton

Hello, Didn't last week go so fast? You blink, and they are gone recently, weeks I mean! lol

Well last week, I shared with you my Colourful Quilted Blanket, sent as a birthday gift, and every birthday gift need to be accompanied by a birthday card!  So of course, I made my own. This cute little money, using the cross stitch method.   

The little cheeky monkey is a in family joke, and totally perfect for this card, and person. 

These are so fun to make, that I sit most nights, and make one.  In the next few weeks I'll start posting them all.  I may even start selling some too!
