Meet: Christine Haseldine
Mini acrylic framed abstract landscapes
There is something quite magical about creating a painting or drawing, that someone will treasure for years to come. I am inquisitive about the world around me, and love to translate what I see into paintings for others to enjoy. I am a published artist, based in Cambridgeshire. I studied illustration at university and have recently got my own art studio ( a lifelong dream!)
Tea Tonics & Glass Travel Tea Bottles
Simple, healthy, fruit-infused herbal teas using fresh ingredients, to #pimpyourtea, aid your health & make hydration more fun. All ElixirGo Tea Tonic recipes have been created with a focus on ease & simplicity, using only readily available ingredients from a local supermarket or your garden. I wanted to be able to take my tea tonics & herbal teas with me when I was on the go. So I created the ElixirGo travel tea bottle & shared the tea tonic recipe, mindfulness meditations & mindful prompts in the ElixirGo Tea Tonic Recipe eBook.

Meet: Vintage Spotty Dotty
Upcycled vintage wood pieces
My work is inspired by my love of our beautiful countryside, coastline and all things vintage.
My designs are created using reclaim wood & driftwood. Recycling and upcycling is a real joy! I love to incorporate vintage maps, wooden cotton reels and other vintage inspirations into my designs.
Each piece is designed, cut and crafted in my home studio in Staffordshire.
