Some time ago I began working on these pictures using vintage linens as a base to begin, it started out with this love picture which we now have framed in our home I also continued to make more word pictures and gave them as gifts or commissions, along with my childrens names you can see these on our website if you follow this link http://www.mypoppetpetite.com/page6.htm
I then decided it would be really nice to make these heart picture's, we showed them at the Country Living exhibition and there was a wonderful response to them, people just wanted to buy them even if it was just for themselves it did not seem to matter, but since we are approaching Valentines day I quickly thought I should get these on my Etsy shop since each one is a one off and unique and would make the perfect gift for a loved one!!!
You could also buy one for a friend or someone who is getting married I would be happy to add a personal touch to one for you, for example the couples name's wedding date etc....
Or how about one for a close friend a special birthday or just to say thank you
Given plenty of time I am always happy to work with people to produce something just right
Its the month of love but I don't think you need valentines day to tell someone how much you love them sometimes its even more special to just do something romantic without prompting.
I Love you Davinder x
I went away some time ago to a women's conference at The Abundant Life Church in Bradford it was a fantastic time away for me and in some ways a significant time for me to change my outlook about what I could do in my community no matter how big or small that might be.
it was a time when I realised I could really get My Poppet Petite off the ground but also realise even as a busy Mum I could achieve a lot with the right outlook, for myself and for others.
At the conference we got these beautiful hearts you can almost see it says 'Urban Angel' on the side, and this was the theme for that conference.
It now hangs on our wall in the lounge and it reminds me of what I believe God wants me to be like, to be an urban angel in my community to look out for people, to show love, care for others, check in with people, maybe its just a simple phone call, text or maybe its making someone a meal, baking a cake, baby sitting for a single Mum or a couple who struggle to get date nights. What ever it is it can be very simple to reach people no matter how busy you might be.
Also if you are one of those people who does not receive very well who tries to get by with no help well don't be. I have often given help to people who I know will never ask for help. and I really wish they would it can be really rewarding to give someone a helping hand to take their kids for the afternoon or babysit, so if someone is offering, take it and be blessed.
Anyway I really hope you will be inspired to be an 'Urban Angel' and I hope your inspired to show love to those around you.
I hope you have a lovely Valentines day and are inspired to be romantic without prompting on many other days too, its good to say 'I love You'

The conference is a fantastic gathering of women and it is a brilliant encouraging time.
Well I have been rather distracted over the last couple of months, and who could blame me, on the 19th of November we had a beautiful baby boy, Joshua Thomas Madaher weighing a huge 9lb 12oz!!!
So we are now a family of five and loving every minute.... despite the lack of sleep it is such a joy to be mother to this beautiful new life, Joshua is a beautiful Boy and Davinder, myself and the kids love him so much.
