Are you a planner addict…..?


If like me you are a planner addict (there’s no shame in it!!) then I have added some new items to the store recently that you may like!

I, like many of my planner friends just love to decorate my notebook of choice with something fun and sparkly, so I have added some handmade beaded planner page markers to the store!

Check them out, lots to choose from!

Have a great day!

Uncategorized, Valentine's Day

Happy Friday!

I was thinking this week, whilst posting to Instagram, how social media is one of the best tools to use for self promotion today. Having older kids who were growing up in an age at the start of these platforms, I set up personal accounts for myself. It was fun, great for keeping  in contact with people I didn’t see often and some who live across the ‘Pond’.

Whether it’s Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, it allows me to reach such a wide audience. I’ve seen my store stats grow over the months as I have posted online and it’s fun too!

Dont forget your Valentine’s cards, available online in the store with eight designs to choose from, or contact me for a ‘Special Order’.

With pretty much everything now ready or already out for delivery, this week has flown by. Some stock cards, some special requests and new designs for Mother’s day in the bag this week! Variety, creativity and fun!

Have a great weekend!

Valentine's Day

A Special Greeting!

Well last week was super busy and there were lots of cards flying out the door, by post, overseas, hand delivered to friends and pick ups. Lots of personalised cards and some more special orders (I love these)!!

In the past when I’ve bought cards in a high street store, it’s not just a design that has to catch my eye and appeal to me, but also the words inside. Sometimes it’s hard to find one with sentiments that you want to convey to the person you are sending to. With that in mind I decided that all the cards available in the store would be blank inside. In this digital age, people hand write less and less. Buy a card and share a hand written sentiment, then you can say exactly what you want to! 🙂

Valentine’s day is now only a couple of weeks away so get those orders in to ensure you don’t miss receiving them in the post before the day. There are lots to choose from online in the store and if you need something really special, you can contact me via the Etsy message service (click on the Etsy link on the home page) or on my Facebook Page.

Have a great week!

Chilly Weather, Feeling a Little Frozen!

So, since Christmas the weather has been a little cold and we’ve even had a little snow too!  I’m really fortunate to have a huge pentagon shaped window right next to my workstation with fabulous natural light, even in the winter on a dull day it’s pretty good. So the outdoor view is a part of my working day, every day!

This cold snap inspired a kids birthday card to add to the store from Frozen! So there is now available an “Olaf” snowman character card which can be personalised as usual. If you have young kids or grandkids (as I do) you’ll know who this is! I still have songs in my head from watching this movie….more than once 🙂


Already this week, creativity has been at a premium with several “Special Order” cards in progress, which I will show snippets of later this week. These are proving to be very popular and I love being given a “spec” from a customer that I can work with to create a unique idea for their card. So much fun!! 🙂

Have a great week!

Holiday Weekend Fun!

Well it’s Friday, end of the working week and a Bank Holiday ahead. Last of the summer fun to be enjoyed, as long as the weather stays fine that is!

It’s been a fun and busy week in the studio, with some new cards and gift tags now available in the Etsy Store for you to check out.

First we have some cards for teens and men who may have up coming birthdays soon. These as with most of the cards available can be personalised with a name for the person you are sending to and come in 2 designs, car or bicycle theme.

There are also 2 new additions to a new category “New Home” cards! Again these can be personalised with the names of those moving to a new home and come in 2 different designs for you.

Finally there is a new addition to Gift Tags and these are cute button designs for those special gifts. These will come in packs of 10, including both designs and various colours.


I hope you all have a great long weekend and keep an eye out for the offer coming next week for September!

Bright Craft by Sharon Studio, General

Hello Everyone!

As a hard working wife, mother of 3 great kids (all grown up now!) and grandmother of two little boys, I had decided in early 2016 that I was keen to make some lifestyle changes and take my lifelong interest in crafts to a new level after deciding in the Spring to stop working full time. Big decision!!  So after some time out and a good deal of thinking I decided to take the plunge and open my lifelong interest in “making things” to a wider audience. I am enjoying this new venture in life, because it’s too short not to try something new, right!

So here I am, taking the plunge in my little home studio and enjoying making creativity my new job! I love colour, design, ideas and the accomplishment of making something unique.

I make cards and other goods from high quality card stock and am developing new ideas and designs all the time, to grow my Etsy store.

I hope that you will like what you see and that you will visit often!

Happy Etsy shopping!
