About Me

My name is Maxine and I am owner of this little shop of lovelies. I’ve just turned 30 (eek!) and live in the South West of England in the county of Wiltshire.

I have always loved crafts for as long as I can remember and could always be found cutting and sticking and getting messy with paints. I have always been able to get lost in a craft or stationery store for hours on end and I finally decided to turn my love for crafts into a handmade business.

 I hope that you enjoy taking a look through my products. If there is anything you see that you would like me to customise or create for you in different colours then please feel free to contact me, I am happy to take on any custom orders.

You can also join me on my Facebook page where I share my latest projects, products and anything I feel like sharing.

Thanks for reading and for visiting my website,



In February of 2015 Maxine won Young Entrepreneur of the Year for her business Buttons & Bows Boutique (previous name of Starlight Bows). She was up against 5 other entrants who were all judged on their customer service, product and business knowledge and presentation skills. They were interviewed following a market in Trowbridge town centre where they set up their stalls to sell to the public. Other awards were also given out on the night with Maxine also scooping up the customer service excellence award as well.  You can find more details on the Wiltshire Times website here and here and here.

Maxine won 2nd prize in the Craft Marquee for her stall set up at the 2017 Gillingham and Shaftesbury Agricultural Show.
