About Me

I am Cathy, a nurse and a mum and a maker of little people!

When I was at school I discovered fimo modelling clay and made my mum some models of our family. She was so pleased with them that she put magnets on the back of them and kept them on her fridge! They are very battered now 20 years on but still live in my mum's dining room mounted in a picture frame.

I studied Art and Design at college but went a very different way and trained and worked as a nurse. However, I also carried on making fimo people in my spare time including our entire wedding party for my own wedding cake and have made wedding cake and christening toppers for friends and family.

This year after finding it hard to juggle working with looking after my two children I decided to put my little people in frames so they can be given as gifts for any occasion at anytime, no cake needed! After giving a few pictures to friends as gifts and seeing their delight I started selling them and here we are today..................
