Hello everybody, I thought maybe it was time I told you a little about myself.
I am Alice and I live in the UK in the heart of the Kent countryside with my twocats and three rabbits and, together with my partner Jay, (Mr CHC) I am Custom Handmade crafts. I do the arty crafty design bits, and Mr CHC helps with sorting the wood ready for use and setting up saws etc for me and all the wood work is done in his workshop. From time to time he will disappear with a bit of wood and come back with something he has made just for me!
I have always enjoyed creating things arty and crafty and making unique gifts for friends and family wanting to give something different that is not available ‘off the shelf’ as it were.
Custom Handmade Crafts came about in September 2014 when I made a door plaque for my newborn niece as a gift, and also for a friends little boy’s birthday. The plaque idea grew from there, branching out for my grown up nieces wedding and my young train loving nephew Freddie. Now I am overflowing with ideas and cant stop making!
Everything is hand made, I cut all plaques and shapes myself by hand from a single 2M length of wood using a scroll saw, and I individually sand, varnish and hand paint each one making every plaque totally unique. Once they are ready I drill the holes and finish them with a quality, non yellowing, clear varnish and 3mm satin ribbon for hanging.
I never buy pre cut blanks or MDF and as all plaques and shapes are individually hand cut and painted no two are exactly the same, making each one totally unique.
I always have some ready made items in stock however my speciality is custom orders. Orders made to your personalisation and preferences, if you have something in mind, or see something you would like a little bit different, please do ask as my aim is for you to have exactly what you want.
I always welcome ideas for custom orders and personalised items, as well as change of colour schemes and/or adapt designs to create something uniquely for you.
I am only a message away and am quite happy to discuss your requirements with no obligation to buy; my aim is for you to have exactly what you want.
