Well, my love of keepsakes started way back when my eldest son, Luca, was born almost 11 years ago. I decided to keep a memory box for him to look back on when he's older. I started to fill it with all kinds of items, from a lock of his baby hair, his hospital scan photos and nursery drawings etc...the list goes on and then Noah, my youngest son was born and so, of course, there was another memory box!
Our wedding invitations were handmade with a heart shape made from mine and my husbands fingerprints, funny how leafing our prints made their mark all those years ago! Suffice to say that I see a real value in anything that brings back happy memories and marks a moment in time.
The Happy Hibou Fingerprint Tree was created when I wanted to make something a little bit different , a personal keepsake for my mums birthday. I wanted a simple design and make it original. My first drawing was the Ash Tree which has proved to be very popular with my two little owls "Hibou & Hoot" who sit proudly on one of the branches. So, the tree was drawn and now all that was needed was our families fingerprints to work their magic and bring the tree came to life....some time after, I then created a childrens range, "Bella & Boo" my baby owls. This collection is perfect for celebrating your childs birthday or christening with cute butterflies, bees, ladybirds or personalised bunting.
I hope that my passion for beautiful keepsakes comes across and that you love what you see at Happy Hibou.
