My little shop, Handmade by Nellie, has evolved! As sales of my greetings cards went so well last year, and my creative endeavours such as resin crafts are continuing, I have decided to move the shop to a new platform. My hope is that, by doing this, I can spend less time managing sales and more time creating new work! I also hope that I will reach new audiences, and become a (somewhat) more professional seller.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about my latest creative endeavours – but that’s not to say that they’ve stopped! For Christmas, I received a starter kit for resin art. For a while now, I’ve thought how lovely it would be to encapsulate nature’s treasures in resin, and preserve what might otherwise wilt or crumble. Read on to hear about my first foray into the world of resin art, and to see the ways nature has been inspiring me since the new year.Continue reading “Blog: Moss and Lichen Crafts”

It has been quite a tumultuous year since I wrote my Folkdays post on bluebells last May. At that time, I was adjusting to a new normal of being locked-down in a city, with only a few spots of nature to be found. Now, I have moved back home, to a place where nature abounds – and while I am looking forward to the spring and the arrival of the bluebells, I am also enjoying the sight of another early spring bloom: the snowdrop.
As heralds of the coming spring, I am sure snowdrops come with plenty of folklore: let’s explore, below.

Over the course of a year, we gather many things. Photographs in a our camera roll, which don’t reach social media; new memories, knowledge, or lessons, which run the risk of being forgotten.

Over the course of a year, we gather many things. Photographs in a our camera roll, which don’t reach social media; new memories, knowledge, or lessons, which run the risk of being forgotten. These things, I hope to collect together into a virtual scrapbook: blog posts which round up the week’s moments.
I always hope to use this website to reflect what is going on in my life in the present. As my art and creative pursuits have stepped more into the forefront, I’ve created an ‘artist’ page to showcase these aspects of my life.
Find it along the header bar above!
It feels about time to share another of the seasonal crafts I’ve been trying, with the natural treasures I collected over the autumn months. This one is a particularly cosy, wintery craft: creating natural firelighters out of everyday materials! These are really easy to make yourself, and the finished product can be used at home, or gifted to friends and family. Read on below!Continue reading “Blog: Homemade Natural Firelighters”
