Cold night and I am spending my time reading a book while I enjoy a glass of red wine. Suddenly I hear someone to knock my door…who is it so late? I open the door… and I look right and then left and then up…nothing. Hmmm weird… ” Hey you…down here…”. I look down and what I see? A tiny cute owl! ” I am not alone, I have my friends too. Can we enter?”
And just before I say anything, here come the rest of them! So small, so cute, with beautiful colors and amazing eyes! They enter my home, they sit on my chair and they relax! And I just keep looking them! “Poppy will join us in a while. She will prepare us with lace and beads and ribbons in order to be more beautiful and be ready to hang us”. Ok..got it! I will always have with them with me! Perfect! Because I adore owls and I love uncommon necklaces and jewels, especially if they are handmade and ceramic!
Hi! My name is Poppie I’m a graphic designer and I’m the crafter behind Hoot Handcrafts. At Hoot you can find hand sculpted and painted owls, each one unique with their own personality and their own little story, that can accompany you at tea time, reading, playing music or just daydreaming.
In english “hoot” is the whistling sound that the owls make when they communicate. When I made my first owl “Henrietta” and painted her eyes I thought see was looking at me as if she wanted to say something, so that is how I came up with the name hoot.
The names, colours and designs I use for my owls are inspired from my favourite characters from books, movies,songs or even real people that touch my heart for some reason.
I create things with my hands as long as I can remember myself. From painting to sculpting or even sewing, they are all ways to express my feelings, my ideas my being in general. And also it is very therapeutic for my mind. The moment I enter my workshop I completely forget everything else. It’s me, my dog Sandy and the owls.
So cute! Like having a beautiful tiny forest with me all the time… a magic forest, like the one in fairytales, full of cute owls! And they are getting ready for Christmas too…..
All these gorgeous owls can be found in Hoot Handcrafts facebook page and in case you wish to create something just for you…just do not hesitate to ask her.
Have a wonderful and magic weekend!!!!
