When I picked up a stick and wrote my son's name in the sand, I didn't realise it would lead to a whole new venture.
I took a photograph and then continued my walk along a beach in Wales, with Joshua and my husband Stuart.
We adored the picture and had it made into a canvas for Joshua’s bedroom.
Everyone loved it and I realised it would make a wonderful and unique gift for other children too.
So I returned to the beach near Abersoch and began the painstaking task of writing the top 100 boys’and girls’ names in the sand.
I added other popular names and different spellings as well as messages such as Congratulations and Just Married.
It creates a lot of interest as the names end up covering the beach!
I am thrilled that the canvas prints give so much pleasure - they look wonderful on a child’s wall and make a great gift for a birth, christening or birthday.
People of all ages also adore the special message photographs and the simple drawings such as a heart. I'm told they make great presents for weddings or other special occasions.
Some people suggested I save myself time and trouble by using computer technology to write the names, but I think this way is much more special and I hope you do too.
