Plaques of all shapes, sizes and interests! February 27, 2015 08:46

I absolutely love creating new plaque designs and am always pleased to receive orders requesting something unusual. I recently had a request for a plaque based on trains because the customer's son loved trains, particularly Virgin trains! I'm definitely used to children with 'particular' (unusual) interests; my son Louis isn't into trains at all but loves animals, his personal favourites being cows and brown (?!) hippos. He even had a hippo themed birthday party for his 3rd birthday. It's on my to do list to create a hippo plaque for him but I'm not expecting this design to catch on and be a best seller!

This is Louis' birthday hippo cake - as you can see my love of getting messy and doing crafts does not extend to baking!!
