On April 15th, 2008 by .

I am in the process of decorating our nursery and have been on the hunt for some tasteful cushions. Hunky Dory Home makes a range of accessories including lampshades using colorful & stylish fabrics. Each one is hand made and very reasonably priced.

How to find a trusted tradesmen?

On April 15th, 2008 by .


Let’s face it, a good and trust worthy tradesman can be extremely hard to find and when you do eventually find one it’s even harder to find a time when they can fit you in!

Rated People is a business directory of tradesmen who have been rated by the public to help us see if they have done a good job for previous customers. It’s a simple yet very effective idea. To use the service, you need to register, post a description of the job you need doing and then wait for the tradesman to contact you with a quote. Once you receive the quote you can check out the feedback by previous clients before you decide whether you want to use them or not. I have used three tradesmen from this site purely based on their positive online feedback. Let’s hope we can say goodbye to all those cowboy builders and decorators….

Your childs artwork...on a handbag!

As I am expecting my first child, this company really caught my eye. We all know how much children enjoy drawing and it’s great to then pin the picture on the fridge or wall. However, we can sometimes be limited on space and after a while the drawings can start to look at bit tatty and messy!

Scribble Coutre has the answer. It’s an online company that copies your childs drawing on to a bag of your choice. It’s simple to use; simply upload the drawing from your computer (by either take a picture of the drawing with a digital camera or scanning it), choose the bag of your choice and then wait for them to post it to you!
It’s not cheap but then the bags are real leather and so are made to last. Let’s hope your Childs drawings are stylish enough….!
