    Do you hand craft dog related gift items? Why not share them with us here!

    I am sure that we could all do with some more Christmas gift inspiration :)

    We have a very small cottage industry going. We make and sell Labrador tea light holders, made in oak and engraved with the dog's name. They come in black, choccy or plain wood.

    They are £15 each including (UK) postage.

    Send me a PM if you are interested or find us here - https://www.facebook.com/LabradorMemories/?fref=ts

    :)

    They really are! I already own two - an earlier design. I've never used them "in anger". I'm one of those people that collects candles and never burns them....

    But they look so pretty on my living room unit. Obviously, one black and one yellow :)

    Definitely interested but think I'll have to wait until we've moved back to the UK, which hopefully should be sometime in the next month......

    Are you still making the bookends? Looked on your facebook page and want it all! Are you still going the cats as well?

    Yes :) Here are the bookends and a cat - I am painting the cats' markings - having a go at a tortoiseshell at the moment! (all are £15 each inc UK postage)

    I'm in the process of designing a napkin holder too - the sort you put on the table with a bunch of serviettes in.

    The longer haired ones are hard to do in wood - Mr Boogs can do it with a fret saw but it would take so long they would cost far too much.

    But I am pondering what could be done with a combination of wooden base and some kind of painted silhouette :)

    Just a quick reminder in case anyone else would like a tea light holder as we have enough wood for 10 more. They are £15 including engraving and UK postage :)

    (Black, choccy and plain wood)

    Boogie Definitely would like one of the tea light holders - choccy version and engraved with Juno but could you hold it for me before posting to our new address in the UK when we finally exchange contracts and move that is. Payment is no problem as I have a UK bank account. Thanks
