Some time ago I was asked if I’d like to review a design by Bobbie MaCabe and as I had recently had another baby I thought it would be nice to review the New Baby Keepsake that Bobbie makes.
I was asked to provide details of my son?s name, date of birth, time of birth, his weight and day of birth, so provided them by email. A while later the finished product arrived and I have to say I am thrilled with it.
The design is in a wooden square box-frame and has a stand on the back so that you canpop it on a shelf or you can hang it on a wall with the little hook that is on it. It is glass-fronted and has a wide mount with my son?s name on it 3D style. Then in the middle of the mount there are four other smaller 3D square mounts with baby appropriate pictures on nd each one has my son?s birth details on it. One has the date on, next to that is his birthweight then below there is the day of the week he was born and finally the time he was born. Ours is cream and baby blue and the writing is done in pencil in delicate artistic script. Each tag with the picture and details on in each square has a contrasting bow at the top of it, which all adds to its 3D effect.
The whole thing is individually handmade which makes it unique and a really lovely reminder of our second son?s arrival. The materials are all from the UK and the frame is made locally to me in Chelmsford. This particular type of design retails at £25 which I believe to be very reasonable. I think this would make a great gift for anyone who has just had a baby and I will cherish ours for many years to come. Bobbie does other designs and keepsakes too
