#MarchMeetTheMaker Free Planner

As a person who likes to be organised, I designed a little planner to help me to plan ahead for my #MarchMeetTheMaker Instagram Challenge. A number of people also mentioned that they too may like to think ahead for some of the prompts that they may get a little stuck on, so, I've decided to offer it to everyone as a free download!

To download this free planner, simply click here and then download or save for later. I've printed mine off and have already started scribbling on it. I hope it helps!

#MarchMeetTheMaker Instagram Challenge

After getting a little frustrated that I couldn't find an Instagram Challenge that I wanted to take part in, I decided to make my own instead! This is how #MarchMeetTheMaker was born.

This challenge is to help small businesses such as myself to tell the story behind the brand. It also aims to give an insight into the face, process and hard work that goes into creating all of the beautiful products we have to offer.

The challenge kicks off on Tuesday 1st March 2016 and absolutely anyone can join in, in fact, the more the merrier! All you have to do is post a daily photo to Instagram relating to the prompt of that day and tag it with #MarchMeetTheMaker to take part. It’s that simple! I can’t wait to see what you post and learn a little more about you. Have fun!

The Christening Range

I have now added a range of Christening cards to my collection and I'm really happy to say they are doing quite well. I've made two different versions, one is a standard illustrated card (see below) and the other is a surprise scratchcard (see above).

Both cards feature my hand drawn florals, and come in 3 different colourways. They are also available as Godmother, Godfather and Godparents. However, I think the best bit is probably the hand drawn lettering! I love that I can make something that no one else has right down to the text on the card. I also think that it makes the cards feel a little more friendly and personal.

Both sets of cards are already available in my shop and will be ready for wholesale soon!
