I haven’t forgotten Mothers Day!!!! (my wife is sorting it out)

A few years ago whilst discussing Mothers Day with a friend he said exactly that! “my wife sorts out that kind of thing, and has our 2 mums covered” When asked if he had sorted out anything for his wife (new mum to twins) his face was a picture! “Oooohhh Nooooo I didn’t think about that he said”!

Some may say its all just commercial trollop, and yes some shops can make it seem like that sometimes but it really is a day to just thank mums and remember all they do for us. Life is so hectic alot of the time and time stops for no-one but is very precious so I hope Mothers Day for all you mums out there is a day which suits you down to the ground whatever it may be.

Why don’t you leave me a comment on what would be your perfect Mothers Day treat and I’ll let you know mine!!!!!!!!

Monday Blues?.. No… Bohemian Rhapsody!!!!!

Impala Impressions (with a little help from some friends) accomplished their first face castings this week!

Sorry I haven’t been around for a while, time just seems to be passing too quickly at the moment! Anyone else having this trouble?!!!

Mondays are usually a groan, urgh day for most but this Monday, myself (Jay) and 3 friends undertook our first face castings. The first 2 didn’t go so well and lets say … involved shoving rolled card board tubes up noses so breathing wasn’t an issue, we soon learned that it was impossible to get the full nose covered in alginate, giving a useless mould. Many thanks to one friend who decided that she would give it a go and trust me to leave two nostril holes throught the alginate and then the plaster bandages. The whole process takes minutes then about 8 minutes drying time before prising the cast off. For a first time I thought we did execptionally well, no hair pulling (lots of vasaline!)

The girls did me and I have to say that it was a most pleasant experience, abit like having a facial massage and I found it quite relaxing, the other girls said the same.

If anyone is interested in giving this a go – give me a call on 01732521537 or email justine@impala-impressions.co.uk for availability and pricing.

What a fantastic and unusual present!

Let me know what you think!

Festivities over, snow over, lifecasting begins……….

Hi all, I would like to start by thanking all my customers of 2009 and hope that you all had a fabulous christmas and the New Year has started off well. The snow here was bad for at least 3 weeks, posing difficulties for my home casting visits which were all put on hold until the big thaw, so I am now making my casts with not alot of time to do them!!!!! Since teaming up with Samantha Jones

Hop Farm Christmas Market introduces baby casting kits at the weekend

Last weekend saw Impala Impressions selling baby casting kits at the Hop Farm, one of the biggest tourist attractions in the County of Kent. To book tickets click here or ring: 01622 870821.  They have a wonderful Santas Magical Kingdom going on at the moment and all the children and parents I met were having the time of their life.  Although a fairly quiet weekend (considering it was meant to be the busiest shopping weekend of the year!) alot of fun was had with other stall holders.  There were lots of interesting stalls to be found and one in particular, Cupola Potter http://www.cupolapottery.co.uk with really unusual stoneware in 3 distinct styles, all individually handmade and all one off pieces.  The price is good too so have a look! 

Demelza House had the stall next to me and are there until the 24th December, please take the opportunity to visit them, their work with terminally ill children is truly amazing, Demelza supports children and young people who are expected to die before reaching adulthood, and their families. Due to the hereditary nature of many of the children’s illnesses, some families may have more than one affected child. In many cases there is no cure. In others, treatment has been tried but failed and the focus has transferred from active to palliative care.

When a diagnosis is given which offers no hope or where treatment is abandoned, families often feel very isolated and alone in their grief. Many of the conditions from which the children suffer deteriorate slowly over a number of years, placing an enormous strain on family life. Often the child will need constant care throughout the day and night and whilst families willingly invest their total love, energy and attention into caring for their sick child, they can and do become exhausted. Healthy brothers and sisters often feel left out as attention focuses on the sick child.

Children’s hospices provide the necessary short breaks and a range of services benefiting the children and young people themselves and their wider family, which are simply not available elsewhere.  If you could take the time to donate to this fantastic charity please click here http://www.demelza.org.uk

Don’t forget to order your baby casting kits from Impala Impressions this week to guarantee for Christmas http://www.impala-impressions.co.uk

Annabel Karmel visits Impala Impressions

Annabel Karmel visited Impala Impressions, the baby casting specialists on their stand at The Designer Baby Show. Annabel took time to stop for a publicity photo and also to chat to Justine, founder of Impala Impressions about her new range of casting kits. Annabel did 2 talks at the show on baby nutrition which was also attended by clareByam-Cook, breast and bottle feeding expert to Celebrity mums. Although the show was overshadowed by a lack of footfall, it was a great opportunity to network and mingle with fellow exhibitors and too finally meet all those mums who have set up their own businesses.
