Missed the last post of meetthemakerweek - WHERE? - yesterday I was at the btnetsymadelocal fair meeting so many lovely customers - in fact it was so crazy busy I didn’t get a chance to take a photo or even have a look around the other stalls! I’m lucky to be stocked by so many beautiful independent stores as well as @oliverbonas and @anthropologieeu ✨ You can also shop the collection online, link in bio ✨

Bit late with today’s meetthemakerweek - as corny as it may be my ‘WHY’ is my little ones. The business started by chance (see post 2) It gave me some much needed creative time after having my son. Over time I saw how it could allow me some flexibility to be around for the kids and earn a living. But honestly? I see lots of mums starting their own businesses because an alternative doesn’t exist - flexible working hours are hard to come by and I’ve watched lots of my friends struggle with their ‘mum’ and ‘career’ hats! It’s not all plain sailing and the elusive ‘balance’ of being a working parent does not exist I’ve decided! But the bonus of it all is that I’m lucky to do something I enjoy (not everything, this week - tax return 😩) and I hope that my children will grow up knowing they can go for it, whatever it may be that makes them happy.

Day 3 of meetthemakerweek - Where? - I am based in Hove by the sea, and have a workspace in my house! It’s becoming a bit of a squeeze and on weeks like these, when it’s awash with boxes it’s not very instagramable! When? I work 2/3 days a week and a LOT of evenings! I also have some help when the big orders come in. Sometimes the juggle between home life with 2 little ones and being self employed is a little tricky. I’ve had to say no to some amazing projects this year, as I want to spend some of my week with my littlest and pick my eldest up from school every day. Its hard saying no when you are self employed and I try not to where possible, but I’ve learnt that it’s important to avoid burnout!

It’s day 2 of meetthemakerweek - and the prompt is WHAT - I started out by making a tiny collection of handmade cards to raise money for the charity ECHO who helped us when my son was born with a heart condition. A shop owner asked to stock them and from then I was on the wholesale journey! Things have moved on since then but I still hand finish many of the cards myself - I enjoy the process too much and I couldn’t do away with ‘Bruce’ AKA Mr Party Pants in his glittery pants, applied by hand by moi! ✨And to remember how it all started we will be launching a valentines card soon with all profits going to ECHO. ✨

This year I’m following suit with lots of other independents and ditching Black Friday in favour of indiefriday Our prices haven’t inflated over November to then drop them tomorrow, and I’m sure my nearest and dearest would prefer a gift that is truly unique, handmade and local that were made by people who love what they do. I’ve tagged some of my favourites x
