Thank you so much for the wonderful Doric poem that you wrote for my Mum’s birthday. You captured her perfectly and I am sure she will be absolutely delighted with it. What a talent you have! I wish you every success with your business venture and I’m sure that I’ll be in touch again at some point to request another poem. I'm so thrilled with this and wish you all the very best with your business venture. I'll be sure to pass on your details to family and friends. In the meantime, I also meant to let you know that the poem that you did for my friend.... was the Alive and Kicking one. It was great too!

As promised, a quick note to say that the Anniversary poem for Dad and Mum was very well received - they were thrilled with it and loved the fact that it was so personal to them. They even managed to work most of it out without resorting to the translation!
Thank you again for your skill and talent in making, what was going to be a difficult present buying process, a painless experience.

Hope the business goes from strength to strength in the future.

Alison Skinner poe,t(sic) has written several poems for me and on commissioning her, she only needs to know a few points about the recipitent (sic) and she turns them into the most magical, funny doric poems ever. Brilliant, funny poetry which is a 'must' for a special occasion.

We were searching for a custom gift with Scottish flair and Alison came through beautifully. She was commissioned to write a First Anniversary poem for a North American couple in the span of a week. Her wonderful poem in Doric hit all the points we suggested and met our deadline. It was humorous and tender without being overly- sentimental. Our sister and her new husband, of Scottish ancestry, love the poem and pictures and were thrilled that we thought of their milestone during our vacation in Portknockie.

I commissioned a poem for a family Golden Wedding celebration and although the author did not personally know the recipients she captured the family detail beautifully. Will certainly use Doric Ditties again.

Mrs S, Cullen

What a great idea! Alison understood exactly what I required from the briefest of conversations. I’m now looking at every promotional opportunity as a Doric opportunity!

Well Fenella's do last night was a huge success.   She loved the poem and I read it out in my best doric (you would have been cringing nae doot) to gales of laughter from our table of 14 and most of the rest of the restaurant as well!   thanks again - we are all delighted with the service you offer, and the uniqueness of the gift.
 ps please use any of the above as my testimonial!

"Thank you Alison for such a wonderful poem for dad's 80th.  It incorporates very cleverly all the information I gave you about him.  The inclusion of some ... photos you sourced yourself was also a lovely surprise. Not only is it a lovely poem but it is beautifully presented".
