not on the high street

posted in: Instagram | 0

It’s felt as if I’ve not had a lot of new work/content to post on here lately… and there’s been a reason for that. I am super excited to be able to tell you that I am now a @notonthehighstreet partner 🎉🎉 This is has been my dream for such a long time, and I just wanted to thank everyone who has supported me and helped me to get here – I’m waving all of the flags today!! 🚩

The amazing journey of an order

posted in: Instagram | 0

Since I made the new thank you order that I put in with all of my orders, I’ve had almost as many messages about the note as I have about the products I’ve sent out. Because of that, I thought the next thing I had to make was a similar picture for other small businesses – not a thank you note, but a picture showing the amazing journey of an order. And here it is! I hope you like it!

This is hot off the sewing machine, but I’ll be making prints, so if you’d like to be the first to know when these come in to stock, please sign up to my newsletter (there’s a link in the bio 😊💌) .
Happy Tuesday xxx

Fly the flag for small business

posted in: Instagram | 0

It’s reaching that time of year where we’re starting to think about Christmas – whether it’s frantically prepping for fairs, shop and online sales, starting to see flurries of orders coming in 🤞, or writing lists of things to gift. .
Whatever the reason, a shop small badge is the perfect addition to your cardie to wave the small (but mighty) flag for the small (but mighty) businesses. I have maker versions like this, which I splattered in paint or my regular blue, both of which are free motion embroidered with the teeny tiniest writing and available on my website. .
Fly the flag for small businesses 🚩

Playing with paint

posted in: Instagram | 0

I had great fun splattering fabric paint 🎨 over material, my workshop and all over myself yesterday (sadly it was only once I got home from the school run that I realised I had been sporting a yellow eyebrow 🤪) I wanted to make some maker badges that looked like they were cut from a painters apron – like a maker had made them 😊. There are a few different wording options, which I’ve listed over on my website now.
Have a great day xxx

Celebrate every tiny victory

posted in: Instagram | 0

How often do you whizz through life without stepping back to take stock of what you’ve accomplished? How often do you use the word ‘just’ when describing your efforts?
.
My homework for you this week is to celebrate all of the little victories… I’ll start you off, I’m celebrating that I’ve been to the post office every day for the past fortnight (and sending a massive thank you for keeping me busy while I’m at it!) what are you celebrating? Comment below and I’ll give you a big cheer!!
.
Have a great week xxx
.
Ps sorry for the very annoying dog hair on this flag … I’m just calling it Molly’s contribution to the task .. maybe she barked at a cat or something!

Go at your own tempo

A piacere – tempo is at the discretion or pleasure of the performer
.
How often do you look around, notice what everyone else is doing and realise how much better they’re doing and quicker they’re getting there than you? Its far too easy to get so caught up with what other people are doing that we forget to live our own lives and work towards our own goals at our own speed.
.
Life is not a race; embrace the pace of your own journey. Enjoy your week playing a piacere
. . .
Ps if you’ve spent any period of time in the company of a metronome, you’ll know why the sounds off for this one 😉 .

I made a load of sparkly rosettes and put them in my shop (there’s a link in the bio)… happy Thursday!!
