New Year New You Giveaway - Jar of Handmade Hearts

So hands up if you got new make up for Christmas?

Me too, so that's why todays giveaway is so well timed. Todays giveaway is sponsored by Jar of Handmade Hearts who has offered up a personalised make-up bag. You get to chose the fabric from their wide range on offer and the name to be put on it.

So here is a little bit about the shop and it's great owner Hailing.

Whats your name and where do you come from?

My name is Hailing. I’m a Northern lass but live in London!

Tell us a bit about the real you?

I’m a wife to my first love and a mother to our gorgeous little boy called Henry. I’m lucky enough to bake and sew for a living. I’m very crafty and have had a go at pretty much everything from crochet and card making to painting pottery and fimo modeling but I always come back to my sewing machine.

Is there a story behind the name of your store?

I was inspired by a Jar of handmade hearts on my craft shelf. I keep meaning to decorate the house with them but they look so pretty just in the jar.

How long have you been making your designs?

I’ve always made gifts over the years and recently decided to bite the bullet and set up an online shop, which has only been open for 6 weeks. I’ve been making most the items I sell for as long as I can remember but technology inspires some of the newer additions like the kindle and Ipad covers.


Do you have any formal qualifications for your craft or is it just a hobby?

No formal qualifications, just years of practice and you know what they say practice makes. (Although I must confess I’m far from perfect. I still have moments where I want to throw my machine out the window!)

What is your favourite material to work with?

It has to be fabric. There’s nothing nicer than a shiny, new fat quarter just waiting to be made into something beautiful.


Of your items, which is your favourite and which is your best seller?

This is a tough one... I’d say my favourite item to make would be the personalised baby cubes because they look so pretty when finished and I know a tiny human will be receiving it!

I was lucky enough to have my personalised cosmetic bag featured in The Sun newspapers Christmas gift guide so this has been the best seller so far with the personalised kindle covers and mini hot water bottles not far off!

Where do you get your inspiration?

My son inspires my baby products. He can be surrounded with toys but will opt for flicking any labels / tags he can find so needless to say he loves the baby cube and the mini blankie toy. My family and friends inspire my other designs – purses, kindle covers etc – all made after requests!

Do you have any favourite etsy stores?

I do indeed! I have lots earmarked for a purchases in the New Year, especially from http://www.etsy.com/shop/sweettreatsbakery and http://www.etsy.com/shop/FusionSweets. Plus I’d like to give a shout out to my sister, Meiling, who makes fabulous hat and scarf sets – http://www.etsy.com/shop/cutsiepoo


What are your plans for 2012? Any New Years resolutions?

I always make resolutions but never seem to be able to keep them. This year I’m writing them all in a little book which I plan to keep in my handbag. Top of the list so far are to exercise, eat more healthily and hand-make all my gifts from now on. I’m really going to try and keep them this time. Honestly.

What’s your favourite flower?

I have two – my nieces Lillie- Mei and Poppie-Sue! In terms of the garden variety I’ve always loved peony roses but have recently discovered how amazing gladioli are, they look gorgeous are really inexpensive too.

Onto the giveaway bit!
The winner will be chosen at random and will receive a personalised make-up bag.

This is open internationally, just remember to leave you email address in one of the entries so I can contact you.
