There are so many wonderfully, talented people that I have only found out about from doing Disneyfind. They make and sell the most amazing handmade gifts and I have to admit that sometimes I prefer handmade pieces to store buys. I feel like they are made lovingly by people so they always seem that little more special. I also think that it is very important to support these small businesses as many people work so hard to make a living from selling their marvellous handmade goods.
In this blog I hope to share with you some of my favourite handmade pieces that I have either bought or been gifted over the past few years. I have made so many lovely friends who make or craft their own products and I just wanted to share with you a few of my favourites. (I am sorry if I haven’t posted all of my favourite stores only this blog would be way too long! So I am planning to do a follow up post in the next few weeks.)
Most of these pieces are from the sellers personal account and some are from Etsy.
I only actually found out about Etsy when I started this page and some of my friends had never heard of it when I mentioned it to them. For those of you who have never heard of it, Etsy is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell original, antique and handmade pieces – see here Etsy. It’s fabulous for personalised or unique gifts for yourself or for a loved one.
I will put a link in to their instagram page and you can usually access the store via their bio.
Hope you enjoy and any questions please feel free to message me via instagram.
How FAB are these? The lovely NELLIBUB sent me these lovely paper name signs for my three children! They are wonderful and so perfect for brightening up their bedrooms. They do custom made designs so you can request any character that you like. They recently made the cutest little Moana sign.
Isn’t this just perfect? Such a beautiful keepsake for Joseph to have and I can’t believe that they even put his weight and time of birth on it. The lovely Handmade by Kirsty sent this to me as a surprise when Joseph was born and I will treasure this gift forever! They have some lovely Father’s Day gifts on there at the moment ✨
I LOVE this top! It was sent to me by the Thrift.co.uk and I think it may be my new favourite tee! You all know how much I LOVE Moana so it is so lovely to have something Moana related in my wardrobe. They also do very cute baseball tops with other Disney characters! Perfect ✨
This is brilliant isn’t it? I thought this would be perfect for Gareth to take to work, he refused though! It is from Tea Please.co.uk Definitely one of my favourite mugs! ✨
Oh you pretty things Is a fab company! They do these lovely surprise boxes based on a particular theme or a mix of various Disney bits! My favourite piece in the box is always the original art work by Lauren. I actually have her Castle print up on my bedroom wall!
This is such a simple little piece but by far one of my most favourite! It is from Magic by Mimi which is run by the lovely Claudia who has been incredibly kind to me over the years. I also bought my little Alice in Wonderland fairy door from her too! She makes wooden Disney signs and they are all original! Go and check her out ✨
I know right? This cushion is the best! I was sent this gorgeous couples cushion a few years ago and it is most definitely one of my favourite Disney pieces! I love that it has mine and Gareth’s names on it and it’s just nice to have a little Disney magic on our bed! Love it! You can find it here at Bebela Store. They also sent me a wonderful personalised Dumbo cushion when Jospeh was born.
Isn’t this Beauty and the Beast bunting FAB? Belle from Closet Geek online sent me this and I loved having this bunting up when Beauty and the Beast was released. Belle makes some wonderful pieces but her children’s clothes are wonderful! If I had a little girl I would be buying so many of the character dresses from her! ✨
Quite possibly my most favourite handmade gift is from the incredibly talented Enchanted Rose. She makes the most lovely Disney inspired brooches with characters such as Marie from Aristocats, Rufus from the Rescuers, Cheshire Cat and the Genie! They are handmade and simply beautiful! Go and check them out ✨
How lovely is this? If you follow me on instagram then you might know I joined slimming world recently. I started well losing a stone but haven’t been sticking to it lately! The lovely Pamela from Sparkle Hearts makes some lovely Disney inspired pieces. I also have some of her gorgeous wine glasses ✨
This gorgeous light box was sent to me by the lovely Vikki from VLT designs! Vickie makes such gorgeous Disney light boxes with a range of characters. ✨
Finally, one of my most favourite things! The lovely Leeann made me this gorgeous wooden name sign made up with my favourite Disney characters. Leeann does custom orders! Go and check her out here Little moments by Leeann ✨
