chat elves

You can now chat with the worker elves!

As much as we give the worker elves a raw deal here on the blog they are actually a really helpful bunch of of semi-mythical beings, not only do they do all our product development, production, workshop maintenance, and act as general dog’s bodies for the high heid yins* but we’ve also roped them in […]

fairy garden

miniature bunting and fairy lanterns, from the worker elves

I was struck by a strange sight today as I was walking past the elf workshop, they had adorned the place with loads of miniature bunting!  I took the opportunity afforded by a brief hiatus in elvish activity (we let them have lunch) to stick my head in and see what the devilry was going on […]

fairy garden by the MadeStuff worker-elves

The MadeStuff worker elves have been awfy excited this past week with all the fairy going on here and about, they’re especially excited about the fairy garden they’ve created . . . we haven’t the heart to tell them that it’s less ‘garden’ than it is ‘tree’ since they’ve worked so hard on making their […]

fairy garden accessories are coming to MadeStuff – a sneek peek

Our MadeStuff worker elves are always on the look out for new ideas, so when they happened upon a rather sorry looking fairy garden whilst on their travails they were struck with an idea and promptly scuttled back to their cave, um, “workshop” to inform their overlords, um “beloved leaders” of what they had discovered!

Site News

A couple of recent updates to the site, an exciting shop one and a dull as dishwater but essential one. The first is the exciting news that we’ve add a “sale” section to our shop where you can pick up a variety of bargains, everything in there is currently 50% cheaper than you’d normally expect […]

relaunching the web-store … again

Following the ‘unforeseen consequences‘ we had last week we’re delighted to announce the re-opening of our web-store having banished the stability issues caused by a software update, it’s not entirely restocked as yet and we might carry out further tweaks as we go along but otherwise it’s all good! To get to the new store […]

unforeseen consequences

We’ve been tirelessly working on back office elements of the website following an unexpected software update essentially crippled the MadeStuff Store – thanks for that WooCommerce :-/   It has however highlighted a stability issue effecting store availability and as a result we’re moving the store element of the website to a separate sub-domain from […]

work in progress – loads of little owls!

It’s been an absolute hive of activity in the MadeStuff workshop today and for your eyes only here’s a wee insight into our workings with a few work in progress shots.  It’s important that the owls organise themselves into a row at the start of the shift so that they can stand and behold the […]

Cute Little Owls

‘O’ if for Owl … Cute Little Owls!

Our cute little owls – or little ‘O’ owls as I insist on calling them – have been with us for what seems like an age!  It’s certainly one of the most popular plushies we make, no doubt because it’s so flaming cute! I’ve just realised, looking at that picture, that it looks like those cute […]

coffee break’s over … BACK TO WORK!

We’re hugely excited to be re-opening our all new website including our ever popular blog and shop.  Of course, we’ve been away on what must be the longest coffee break in history, but all that means is that we’re super-caffeinated and raring to go! You’ll no doubt be seeing and hearing an awful lot more […]
