Change of Business Name

The decision to change the name of my business from “Mystic Moose” to “Ceridwen Hazelchild Design” was based on a drive to forge a closer connection between my artistic practice and my craft business. Alongside my illustrated fabric goods that I make for sale, I also create installation and sculpture artworks which deal with concepts of memory, nature and childhood. This side to my artistic practice has been somewhat abandoned whilst I have been focusing on developing my creative business, and I now want to create a closer link between both creative outlets.

But at the heart of the name change was the urge to enable valued customers to identify with the maker of the products they were purchasing. As a frequent buyer of handmade beauties, I enjoy learning about the maker or designer; knowing and sharing the maker’s name is part of this process. By renaming my business Ceridwen Hazelchild Design I aim to provide a closer link between maker, products and customers.

Although the products I make and sell now have new tags, labels and packaging with our new logo, we will continue to provide the lovely designs and high quality goods our customers have come to expect.

Merry Christmas!

 Roasted Chestnuts

The Christmas season seems to have arrived with amazing swiftness this year, and December has flown by in a blur of tinsel and gift wrap. I wanted to take this moment before I settle down to eat some roasted chestnuts by the fire, to say a huge thank you to all the friends, family, beloved customers, new followers, and fans  who have made 2012 a fantastic year all round! I whole heartedly wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful new year!

Pocket Mirrors, by Ceridwen Hazelchild Design

I already have a few new products and designs lined up for 2013, along with some exciting updates in the next week about changing my business name!  The New Year will bring an expansion of our online shops and I will hopefully be participating in more craft and design fairs, so watch this space!

Lavender Bags by Ceridwen Hazelchild Design

Whilst our online shop is readily available for any new orders, all orders made during the next week will be posted on 2nd January, so that the Post Office and I can have a well deserved rest for a few days!

Susan Horth Jewellery and Sculptures

One of my favourite makers recently is Susan Horth, who constructs exquisite animal and insect sculptures and jewellery pieces from woven wire and bead jewels. Each piece is stunningly detailed and surprisingly life-like. They seem so precious and intricate that time can easily slip away whilst you gaze at them. I am particularly fond of the little bee and lizard brooches.

Alice Palace Illustration

The last few weeks has brought with it a few birthdays for some lovely Sagittarian friends. Even though we may not live nearby any more, having moved to various parts of the country to pursue our dreams, we try to send tokens and cards through the post at regular intervals, and birthdays are one occasion which can’t be missed! I am a firm believer in card-giving, especially when it means you can support smaller companies and independent artists. One of my favourite illustrators in recent months is the independent greeting card company called Alice Palace.

I recommend taking a good look through their website to peruse the selection of quirky colourful designs.

Sally Swannell Advent Calenders

With December approaching fast, I feel the need to share these wonderful advent calendars by Sally Swannel. These flat-pack wonders are assembled to create a free-standing three-dimensional house, complete with chimney and dorm windows, with 24 numbered advent windows on all sides. They are relatively easy to assemble too; we did add a tiny bit of double sided tape on a few of the tabs to make it more secure, but it was more for peace-of-mind than any physical need for it as the slot and tab design holds the house together very well!

I also adore the miniature advent cards, which come with an envelope, perfect for giving and receiving. I enjoy these traditional picture advents like these so much more than chocolate ones!

Lush Designs

If you are looking for colourful and quirkily designed home wares, I wholeheartedly recommend taking a browse through the delightful products by Lush Designs. Their screen printed lampshades are one of my favourite things to ogle at when I am in need of healthy dose of pretty things. Naturally I was drawn to the fox design, but after some thought I decided that I preferred it in the cream and pale grey to darker tones because of how the colours of a lampshade can affect the light in the room. The colours of all the designs are so beautiful and well combined that they seem to make my mouth water. The cotton napkins adorned with root vegetable screen prints are a prime example, with their exquisite array of purples, oranges and blues!
