Where did the idea for SqueakyAngel come from?
It was round about Christmas 2000, I decided to make a Christmas angel decoration. I had always enjoyed making gifts for friends and family using things I could find around the house.
At first they started off small in size and I wanted to somehow make this angel different to ones you could buy.

Whilst studying for my NNEB in Nursery Nursing back in 1997 - 1999 I had to make toys for small children. I chose to make sensory toys that included the use of bells & squeakers so I had spare squeakers left over.I decided to add a squeaker to my angel and Voila! Squeaky Angel was born.
Since then she has grown and evolved from a small angel into what she is today.
My Angels are available to buy from Etsy
