Hi I'm Emily ...
I have three children, including a little boy with Down's Syndrome. We live in a tall thin house in North London, with two cats. I (Elfie), started writing these little magical notes in 2010, and I still haven't stopped.
Do you remember that amazing magical feeling you had as a child? When you hung up your Christmas Stocking on Christmas Eve, or carefully tucked your tooth under your pillow, too excited to sleep? In your imagination, anything was possible.
That's what I love so much. When children get uncontrollably excited and their faces become one big WOW! This is one of the reasons I first created these unique personalised letters for our three young children. I wanted to give them what I would have loved as a child. Hand-crafted and printed on special recycled paper, making them look truly authentic and 'handled'.
I'm passionate about this small window of make-believe time, which young children are able to believe in. So much so, my friends and colleagues have nick-named me Elfie!
And the best bit for us grown-ups? We get all the pleasure from those happy smiling faces from our very excited children, one of the best feelings in the world.
Do pop over to my Blog ... I'd love to see you there.
