Confucius once said, "find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life." To understand what I do, and how it came about we would have to go back to the first heart that I created." It was my sisters first anniversary and I was lost to which present to buy for the happy couple. I've always been a big believer in personal and that a couples wedding/anniversary gift should be worth more than a silver picture frame or his and hers bath towels, so I set to work on creating a gift that I could give to them to remember and preserve their special day. " My sister and her husband had been married abroad but due to a back injury I was not able to attend the service. So kindly my mother bought back my sister's new hubby's wedding speech and a million photos. Unfortunately the wedding speech was misplaced during the trip back to the UK so I did not get to read it. Luckily a year later, my mother found the missing wedding speech, slightly soaked with champagne at the bottom of the clutch bag she used on the big day." It was a process of trial and error. I re-typed the speech from scratch and printed it out (I couldn't exactly give it to her as it was.) The first idea was to make a card but it was too boring and this couple was not boring by any means. Then I thought to just print the speech in a nice font on A4 cream laid paper and frame it but this looked again too plain and unoriginal. It got to the point where I had so many ideas floating around in my head that I got very frustrated and started to cut the printed words up using a heart punch, which just happened to be laying around from my mothers card making days! And after a brew and a few rich tea's there it was, the light bulb moment I was waiting for. I folded the hearts, grabbed the glue gun and just started to stick. The design and layout just happened and the 3D Personalised Heart was born.
