Hello and welcome to Minikin Studio!
I'm Tanya - a Mother of two boys, living in the cosy seaside village of Rathmullan, Co. Donegal, Ireland.
Minikin was inspired by a combination of my great loves; kids, family, making a house a home, seeking fulfilment
in the simple things in life, little joys, and my passion for and experience in meaningful design.
The word 'kin' quite literally means family, friends - a collective of loved ones. Minikin aims to create those little (mini) acts of kindness, that mean a whole lot to those who receive them. The act of a thoughtful gift on a special day - or just because - warms hearts and creates everlasting memories. I originally started creating for my own kin, in those moments I could grasp while raising two young boys and suddenly more and more kindred spirits began to request personalised and meaningful gifts and designs, as well as wedding stationery.
That's when I knew I was making more than just designs, I was becoming part of an even bigger 'kinship'
- creating lifelong gifts for big hearts and happy homes!
I hope you enjoy them!
