New Hare Notebooks

Since I was commissioned to make a box with a Moongazing Hare on the lid back in May, I have been asked to make more boxes and to make similar as framed pictures so I have had my latest piece printed as a Notebook cover and as a greetings card.

Notebooks £5.95

The notebooks measure 14 x 14 cm and the pages alternate between plain and ruled making them perfect for sketching and keeping notes.

The cards measure 12 x 12 cm and are left blank for your own special message. They also look great framed!

Also new in stock are these square Island Cottage and Boat cards.

And Washing Day is back in stock as well.
I made the original for this picture quite a few years ago now. The sea was made using the embellisher machine, incorporating lots of texture and colour with a bit of stitch for added detail. The roofs on the cottages, the sea wall and the washing were made from Harris Tweed.

My four different Mouse Mat designs are all in stock again. 'Hannah's House' bottom right is always the first to sell out.

Mouse Mats £6.95

All of the above can be found in my Etsy shop here 

The school holidays here in Scotland are well under way.
I took my daughter on the train up to Findhorn for a few days last week to join friends who are on holiday there.

Thankfully the sun shone and we spent most of our time on the beautiful beach there.

We caught this beautiful sunset on Friday night.

Lovely clouds catching the light.

Below was early evening midweek. The children had a ball with their body boards and I enjoyed a few dips in the sea too.

My 2015 Calendar is still available to Pre Order at the special price of £8.50 (normally £10)

You can find it in my Etsy shop here

Aileen Clarke Crafts at The Rowan Tree Gift Shop in Falkland

The Rowan Tree
High Stree Falkland

I'm delighted to be stocking this lovely little shop with a good selection of my Jewellery and Brooches.
The shop is right on the High Street opposite the palace and is a little treasure trove of pretty things including jewellery, scarves, bags, clothes and other accessories.

I have already treated myself to a scarf and a lovely top from this rail below! 

I delivered some more new stock yesterday including these Felt Flower Pendants.

A range of my new Bracelets.

Lots of Earrings in heart, circle and square shapes.

A few Rings in both this long oval shape and a regular oval shape.

Lots of Tartan Bird Brooches flew over last month. Also available in red.

A selection of my Leaf shaped Brooches are also in stock.

And lots of Textile and Resin Pendants in various shapes and colour ways.

It is fantastic to have so many great gift shops in our area of Fife, all supporting local artists and makers. As much as I love exploring wild places on my holidays, I do love a wander round nice shops on a day out.
If you are too far away to visit this shop in person but are interested in any of my work, please feel free to get in touch at or visit my Etsy shop here
