Calling him pork chop was my way of covering my fear that he would continue to lose weight. Luckily now at 5 years old he is a happy healthy boy, although he is still a skinny minnie.
I haven’t sold under the Pork Chop name for ages but you can have a look at some of the stuff I’ve made here if you’re interested).
So, pork chop and me = Tyler and myself! Now, you might have noticed I also have an Etsy shop called RaineCloud. What's that about you ask? Rain doesn't have an 'e' in it...
RaineCloud is named after Holly, as her middle name is Raine. (I wanted Rainbow but Richard wasn't keen on a 'hippie mung bean freak' name, so we compromised when he found Raine which means queen in French). :)
I have also made and sold a ton of vintage doily garlands like these in the pic on the left; lots of which have been custom made for weddings and parties. I'm happy to make you one too! Drop me a line with the length and colours you're after and I'll be in touch.
So there you go - the evolution of my blog in a nutshell. Pork Chop is Tyler, RaineCloud is Holly, and even Richard gets a look in; he used to name my fang bunny toys for the Pork Chop store.
It's nice when craft and family are intertwined!
