My name is Fionnuala and I make handmade greeting cards and other paper crafts at home in Dublin, Ireland. I blog about everything artsy and crafty in Ireland from supplies to craft fairs to unique gift ideas. I started the blog in November 2013 and since then, I have had almost 13,000 visitors from 43 countries including Slovakia, Cambodia and Mongolia so ahoj, ជំរាបសួរ and Сайн байна to you!
What I Feature: Irish and Handmade
Everything I feature on this blog is designed and made in Ireland usually by small independent crafters who sell directly to their customers. I am continously amazed by the talent that this small island has to offer and I love discovering new crafters and crafts. I feature a wide range of products from jewellery to clothing and furniture to pet accessories. I am attempting to feature crafters and crafts from all of the thirty-two counties in the island of Ireland. So far, I have featured crafts from seventeen counties. If your county is not listed and make and sell your own crafts, I would love to hear from you!
Types of Posts
I write a range of posts like Feature Friday, where I feature one Irish crafter that I admire every Friday. I also do shop features where I write about crafty shops I have come across on my travels. I do colour palette collections as well as seasonal collections like these ones for Valentine's Day and Christmas.
I try to live by the simple principle of non-violence so I do not (knowingly) feature any products made of wool, leather, feathers, silk or anything else that once came from a living being. Any beauty products I feature are vegan and do not contain beeswax or other animal derived products. The knitted items I have featured are made of synthetic yarn like this hand knitted dog jumper. I do my best to be thorough about what I feature but sometimes I make a mistake and accidentally feature something that is not vegan and if I do that I would remove it.
