“With love for you, by Billiedoo.
I’m Alison. In 2010, I was on holiday in Austria and loved the handwritten hearts that hung on the doors of our hotel. I came home and wanted something similar for our home. I could find nothing that was quite right, so I decided to make my own. A round of painting, sanding, writing, varnishing and decorating (all by hand) later, my heart sign was complete and hung up with love.
I then thought of all the occasions in life where it would be lovely to give or receive a heart with a special handwritten message on it – weddings, a ‘big’ birthday or special anniversary, the birth of a baby or perhaps a housewarming. Then there are the times when maybe you just want to say ‘thank you’ or ‘you’re special’.
As all my hearts are handwritten, you can have your heart say exactly what you want. They’re the perfect gift to give when you don’t know what to give! For more examples of what I do, please visit my website or facebook page. Best of all, get in touch by email or phone and find out what Billiedoo can do for you.”

OPENING 5TH MAY
LesleyMacMakes is a creative workspace and retail outlet on Comrie High Street (Drummond Street).
I come from a family of textile designers and have been designing and making my own products for others to enjoy for over ten years. I previously worked under the name of “Fresh and Vintage Designs” in Blairgowrie where I ran a successful shop and teaching space for many years. My new name is a nod to my grandfather who was never seen without a tape measure!
Since relocating to Comrie I have been working away in my garden studio creating bespoke designs to order….but have now decided to bring my business back to life amongst the other creative folk in Comrie.
Working primarily with Harris Tweed and Scottish Linen my designs can be both contemporary or traditional depending on the pattern or design of the fabric I am working with.
