New Zoo Range

As I mentioned last week I got a lot of inspiration from Longleat Safari Park and as a result I have created a 'Zoo Range'. At the moment it is a few door plaques but I have plans and designs more and for a few clocks too.
Last week I showed you the first in the new range which I have now named 'Zazzi'.


This week I've been finishing off a few more,

Max the Lion

Nelly the Elephant

Fliss the Flamingo

Chris the Crocodile

So what do you think?
I've also made Manny the Monkey

Manny the Monkey

I think he needs a little something extra as he looks a bit plain,
And finally Gerty the giraffe

Gerty the Giraffe

He is the wild cousin of Marty and Matilda and although he is one of my favourites his border takes ages to paint!
Its a short post from me this week for Handmade Monday, I hope you are all having a wonderful Easter, although my creations aren't Easter-themed i'm sure there will be a fair few over on HM that are so i'm now off to have a browse. I have also discovered a linky party over at Serendipity and Spice so i'm going to link in with them too.
Until next time,


  1. Gosh Jem these are lovely - little children will love these. For Gerty you could maybe add a branch with a few leaves on it? Mich x

  2. Maybe Manny just needs a border? They are all very cute!

  3. They're all really cute x

  4. great inspiration - well worth the visit for all those ideas

  5. Lovely! I think Zazzi is my favourite although my 3 yr old would probably choose Nelly as he's elephant mad!

  6. My goodness they are sooo cute.

  7. I love these but have a soft spot for the Heffalump so pretty and am sure they will be loved by kid's and bigger kid's

  8. My aaahh's increased as I scrolled down through the photographs of your work. They are all so lovely. Gorgeous Gerty gets my vote for tops. Hope you have a good week.

  9. Loving manny the monkey, maybe he just needs to be a bit bigger?

  10. I think Nelly is my fave....but they're all brilliant!!

  11. I love the elephant, the animals are great, especially the zebra... in fact, I am hard pressed between the two.

  12. Great door plaques, my fave is the elephant.

  13. These are brilliant! You must have such a steady handy!

  15. I received a Versatile Bloggers Award this week and I am pleased to nominate you to receive this Award too. Have a look at this post for details of the Award:


  16. Great idea for childrens rooms. I like the way Gerty is peering out.
