To celebrate to opening of my Misi Store I'm offering a Halloween Discount of 10% until midnight on the 31st October 2011.

Prices shown are full price. The discount is available on all items in my store. Follow your purchase through and request total from seller when in PayPal. If you forget don't worry we will refund you .
I am trying to find out from Misi if I can use voucher codes at checkout so please bare with me and hopefully we will get that sorted.

Make It  Sell It 

I have to admit I am impressed with Misi. I love the store layout and the ease in which I can update, view and review my current listings. I do still find it very hard to get orders through this style of  website due to the bespoke nature of my product. 
You may wish to purchase 'Twinkle Twinkle' Tiara but not necessarily in red and AB clear Swarovski. Most of my work still comes via email enquiries and invoiced through PayPal. 

'Twinkle Twinkle ' Tiara by Happy Hands Belcoo
It's important to remember that all my products are bespoke and although the listing may be in a certain colour. It is the design you are purchasing in your chosen colours. Not the specific colours in photograph.

Any questions email us at the usual email

Hello there,

I personally have never blogged but after being introduced to it by jeeberellas craft castle, who I have to say has turned out to be such a good friend, I'm going to have a go. I do also feel its a nice way to look back at what I've achieved (or maybe not). Also it gives you an insight to Happy Hands. So hopefully I won't bore you too much ;-) 

If you've read older blogs by now you know the back ground of Happy Hands. Some things in life we stumble upon by shear coincidence, maybe its fate maybe it's not, but so far it's done me no harm. Certain product areas have progressed purely because someone has said "Can you do this for me?" I think my biggest advice in life is "Go for it" the failure isn't falling down it's not getting up again.

Yesterday was one of those days. I met with a local hotel to discuss promoting my products for their table décor for events. I found it a fountain of knowledge, it's very hard to think from a brides prospective and a business prospective when your so passionate about your product. Also sometimes a fresh set of eyes sees something that is staring you in the face, but you've never seen it before.

We talked about the way weddings where going with style and budget. Spoke about package style, but one very exciting thing that came up on the hotel wish list, was table plans and table numbers. I seems so obvious that if I'm going to do the table décor then it should include table numbers. Although I've never done table plans, other than the one I'm doing for my own wedding. I am very excited about the prospect of venue room décor from door to table being organised by Happy Hands. 

My meeting also reminded me how we are all different and we need to remember that when planning in new products. I think I do cover modern quirky and old traditional. So with that in mind, I'm working on two formats for the table plans and table numbers. A traditional mount board 3D style table plan and table cards using a traditional table card holder. For a modern twist I'm thinking of printing A2 table plans with graphics to tie in the theme and framing them in a silver polished frame that the Bride and Groom get to keep as a memento of their day. Also for the table numbers an a5 printed card that co-ordinates with the table plan and table décor, in a silver polished frame. Many modern weddings are now auctioning of there centrepieces as take home treats for the guests. This may be an idea for the table cards in frames or return the frames and get a deposit back for each one returned home safely. 

Hopefully once perfected I will post pictures of the finished pieces.  

Thanks for reading,

Happy Hands

A Little Bit More

Hi I'm Gayle mum of two and proud creator of Happy Hands, which produces a broad range of wedding accessories.
Through out my life Art and Design has played a big part. My background is in Fashion Design and Manufacturing so I've always been creative. 
I opened the doors to Happy Hands when planning my own wedding. Starting with wands as I didn't wish to give my flowergirls expensive flowers. Which quite obviously were not going to make it to the church. slowly but surely I developed to other items including Tiara's, wedding favours and my favourite Organza Bouquet. 
This bouquet is personalised to your theme and your personality using beads, buttons, crystals and charms. Telling the story of your Bridal Party. Perfectly themed for your wedding. Sports mad groom? add a Silver golfer or football charm centre maybe. Maid of honour just had a baby? add a teddy, duck, or dummy centre. Shopaholic bridesmaid?  add a Silver Shoe or Handbag. Never off the phone? add a silver telephone. By the time is it finished you will have a beautiful organza bouquet with several different centres telling the story of your friendship. Each flower is approx. 3.5" in diameter and 12" in height. Surrounded by maribou in your chosen colour. Finished either with tied organza ribbon or satin with pinned seam topped with pearls or crystals. Seeing is believing... I only wish the description did the bouquet justice. 
Happy Hands today continues to grow from strength to strength. I continue to progress with my passion (borderline obsession) with enthusiasm, pride and demand for perfection.
I love the thrill of the challenge of bespoke from design to creation. It's your ideas  and my magic touch. If your looking to match your tiara to your dress detailing then just let me know.
My aim is to fully satisfy the customer's specification to budget and wedding scheme. 'YOUR DAY YOUR WAY'
No matter how big or small every little girl dreams of their wedding day.
