What is the meaning of the word "IMBUE" I hear so many ask? Well...
What inspires you?, because the definition of imbue is to inspire or permeate with (a feeling or quality).

About Me

I myself create every single piece, I began creating small gifts for people close to me and the responses were encouragingly positive, With this in mind I wanted to share their smiles and my talent with others.. and so IMBUEcreation was born..

In July 2019 we ventured into the world of owning a handmade business, today we have a growing homeware section featuring our amazing concrete based décor and a thriving children's section full of fun.
Come Christmas we will be on full steam creating Natural Christmas Wreaths within the community, and with demand higher than ever we will be offering Wreath making kits and virtual workshops.

 

The Full Story

IMBUEcreation is a whirlwind, owning a handmade e-commerce business is challenging but we are up to the challenge, from designing to creating, to advertising and marketing, and then to you! I do it all! And I love it.


But where did it all begin?

You'll laugh when I tell you that the idea was born when my partner (builder) came home every night, bringing with him, his half used bags of cement, leaving them to rot on the driveway. Not only did it drive me mad having to park the car avoiding the mess outside the front door but also it made me think. GOSH, the waste! surly there is something we can use it for.. I started to create products for our home and as gifts for people then realized, I absolutely love doing it.. In the words of Angel Strawbridge, "I am an average crafter with a give it a go attitude" and with the knowledge I had learnt over the years I envisioned bring beautiful products to peoples homes.


With the world at our feet we need to look after it and with more and more of us becoming aware of the effects of our waste, it's time we all do our bit so our products are made to last with quality at the heart. All our candle holders are reusable, our hand poured tea lights are made from only the purest soy wax and all our scents are tested for scent throw and quality all of which can be widely recycled or sent back to us for refilling at a discounted price... I can assure you you will not be disappointed!


Talking a little more about going green and I would just like to mention that we only use repurposed or biodegradable packaging. We use what we can salvage or buy "green" and the cement we use to create our products I hear you ask? Well we do our upmost to create our products from the surplus cement bags left over on local building sites. We are also looking into supply chains that have 0% emission rate for production.


As we continue to grow we look to create only innovative reusable products.
