May Diaries!

May Diaries!


New this month to the Handmade by Jessica range are these personalised Family Tree Box Frames.  They are priced at €35 and can be ordered online here or at my Retail Store Jessica Loves!  May was such an extremely busy month in the Studio for Box Frame orders, Teacher Gifts and Wedding Date Frames that my current turnaround times for Box Frames is 1 week and for wooden gifts is approximately 3-4 weeks.  It almost feels like Christmas time again I am that busy with barely any time to even take a breath!  A friend told me recently I’m like a Duck – cool and calm above water but kicking like a divil underneath!!

NOTE: My wooden craft Supplier will be taking a well deserved break for the month of July so if you have an occasion coming up in July or August please let me know ASAP.  The supply order deadline is Wednesday 21st June.   Anything ordered after that date will be for September delivery!


As I have been so hectic with craft orders since my Shop opened in April, I unfortunately have had no time to spend on Reloved Projects… I do have plenty of projects in the pipeline including two lockers which I’m itching to get done so I can use some of the gorgeous ceramic knobs I have in Store.  (These retail at €4.50 and come in a range of colours and styles).  Also on my Reloved by Jessica agenda are 2 vintage chairs, a vintage telephone table, a chest of drawers, a freestanding mirror, a coffee table, a blanket box and some customer commission pieces including two tall display cabinets – I just wish I could split myself in 3!!

In the meantime, here are some recent interiors shots of my Retail Store!  Jessica Loves has lots of new #prettythingsinside including Happiness Planners, Retro Light Boxes, Bento Lunch Boxes, Decorative Jugs, Floral Cases, Tea Cups, Mugs and Travel Mugs.  Lots of you availed of the June Bank Holiday Online Discount Code which has now expired but stay tuned to my Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook Page for future surprise discount codes!


Eva & Ben meeting Humphrey the Camel!

On the 7th May myself and the kiddies took a day trip to Leahy’s Open Farm, a family run, family friendly open farm located in Dungourney Co.Cork.  Read all about our fun day on the farm here!

On the 17th May, I was thrilled to be featured in the WOW Section of the Evening Echo.  The Women on Wednesday supplement showcases some very inspiring women every week so it was a real honour to be included!  You can read the Jessica Loves article here.

On Sunday the 28th May, Lesley and Patsy of Harper’s Hats held their first ever event at Electric Bar in Cork City showcasing their amazing bespoke headpieces to a special VIP audience and eh..Me!!  You can read all about the fabulous #harperhatshightea Event here.

So that was my May Diaries Round-Up, I hope you had a good month too.  I’m looking forward to June as hopefully this will be the month I start stocking furniture paint at Jessica Loves and finally get back to some exciting upcycling projects!
