Happy Hen Designs is based on my little Lancashire smallholding.
It first began in 2005 when I used my creative skills to paint wall murals in schools, nurseries, homes etc. However, with two very young children, creating on such a large scale became impractical, so Happy Hen Designs was put on the backburner. A couple of years later, another of my creative outlets [cake decorating] became a business and since 2008 I have been creating award winning cakes. Throughout my cake decorating years, I still crafted - crochet, painting, willow work, sewing - and so Happy Hen Designs was given new life with new creations.So here I am now - still cake decorating and still creating with Happy Hen Designs!
On the smallholding, for company, food and inspiration, I keep sheep, chickens and ducks, with pigs due to join us in the autumn.
In addition I grow a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Happy Hen Designs offers a variety of handmade items for the home and garden, all made by hand, by me, on the smallholding.
I try to work with as much thought for the environment, and the people in it, as possible.
