I was hoping to find time to join in with the #indieweek challenge set by @justacard. They are doing a fantastic job celebrating independent makers, galleries and shops. I've just managed to find some time, so stand by for ten random facts about me:
1. I started my business in 1992 with the help of @princestrust who lent me £1000 to buy my etching press. I met Prince Charles.
2. I started off selling handmade cards to shops and once had an order for 6000 from WHSmith (not fun), which is when I decided to start working freelance for publishers instead.
3. My only sister died when she was 24, I miss her every day but it made me appreciate life. Appreciate your siblings.
4. I have a black dog called Ollie, two chickens a very supportive husband and two great children who are now young adults.
5. I finally achieved my dream of having my own garden studio last year. I love having my own space but don't keep it quite as tidy as I should.
6. I met @dalai_lama_the_14th
in India in 1992, my only religious experience, he is ace.
7. I have to eat dark chocolate every day.
8. If 'She Sells Sanctuary' comes on the radio, I have to stop what I'm doing and dance. I listen to @bbc6music all day.
9. I supply my work to ten fab independent galleries, let's keep supporting them #justacard
10. It's my 51st birthday tomorrow, bloody hell that sounds so old.

Well done if you've got through all that. #indieweek #buylocal #shopindependent #printmaker #illustrator

I wanted to give you a little sneak peak of something new that I'm working on. My illustrated maps have been so popular and I'm slowly working my way through all of the requests I've had. Of course, I had to start with my home country - Yorkshire! I was born in Doncaster, I went to uni in York and Flamborough Head is one of my favourite places to visit. Can't wait to share the finish design with you!

I'm late for the @justacard indie week challenge and struggle so much with lists like this but it's a wonderful campaign I'm very keen to support so here it goes with my list of ten things you might not know about me: 👨‍✈️🧘‍♂️
I have two fabulous brothers - one is a fighter pilot and one a crystal-jewellery-making free-spirit (who you can follow @thetribalelement)! 👯
I have an amazing sister who doubles as my best friend, three gorgeous little half sisters, one incredibly adventurous and inspiring step-sister and a wonderful sister-in-law who I'm so excited to get to know really well now we live in the same country. Possibly best of all, this translates into six fantastic aunties for my two little ones. 👩‍🎨
I studied Graphic Design at university which is probably not particularly surprising however I really only *barely* chose this degree over a degree in Environmental Science (to become a Park Ranger) a thought my Mum finds hilarious to this day 🌃
My top ten favourite cities (in no order) are Brighton, Budapest, London, Istanbul, Canberra, New York, Singapore, Melbourne, San Francisco, Berlin 🏃‍♀️
I enjoy running (when I've been doing it regularly, not so much at the moment in the awkward and uncomfortable phase of getting back into it after a break!) 🏞️ I love bushwalking 🧘‍♀️ I love time to myself just as much as time with friends and family 🐨
I grew up in Canberra, Australia, where I've just returned to after nearly seven years in the UK 🇬🇧🇦🇺 I'm a dual citizen 💙
My favourite colour is and always has been blue (Can you tell I completely ran out of ideas towards the end?!)

This is me. (Full disclosure this was me 6 months ago when I had shorter hair and it was sunny....) I had 10 facts all written out ready for you as part of #justacard week but then I accidentally deleted it. I'll be honest I hate giving even one interesting fact about myself cause I immediately panic and my brain goes completely blank. Anybody else go into the same blind panic mode?! So here's the three most important things you need to know about me: 1. My name is Frances but you can call me Fran 2. I hate dickheads. 3. I have the memory of a goldfish. 4. I am terrible at following my own rules. Ask me any question and I 96% guarantee I'll answer with the truth.... 🌟🌟🌟🌟 #indierollercoaster #shopsmallbusiness #shopsmall #shopify #shopifypicks #justacard #proudlyprinted #heytheremaker #wearethemakers #ourcreativeisle #independentshop #supportthemakers #meetthemaker #buydifferently #shoppingwithsoul #etsyundiscovered #handmadehour #thehandmadeparade #emergingmaker #molliemakers #campaignshopsmall #shopindependent #thinkbigshopsmall #feelingfolksy #justacardweek #indieweek #indiefriday

This year I thought I'd join in with the @justacard #indieweek challenge and today's challenge is to give 10 facts about myself. So, hi! If you don't already know I'm Rachel and I run Wild Ginger (not any of my ten facts). As I recently did a couple of posts about how I ended up making jewellery I thought I'd just give you some random facts about what makes me, me.

1) I started doing yoga about 18 months ago and consequently I'm now 1/2 an inch taller!
2) I've always loved cats and we now have a black moggie called Ripley. She was named randomly and not after Ellen Ripley from the Alien films, even though I love her character.
3) I love reading and learning new things.
4) I love plants but don't really have green fingers. My current peace lily is the longest surviving plant I've had and it's just flowered which made me so excited.
5) I was born with a heart problem and have had open heart surgery 3 times. I think the NHS is awesome!
6) If I ever got the chance I would move to the South of France, one of my all time favourite places.
7) I have a bachelors degree in biomedical science.
8) At this time of year I just want to build a blanket fort, watch films and drink hot chocolate. I really wish it was acceptable for humans to hibernate for winter and only come out to celebrate Christmas.
9) I play the violin and piano and almost went to music college.
10) I love a good thunderstorm, especially when I'm warm inside and can hear the rain on the windows.

So that's me in ten facts. It's difficult to decide on only ten things that are important to you and make up part of who you are. What ten facts would you choose about yourself? I'd love to know.

I’m in for the #justacard 5 days challenge @justacard in support of artists, makers, independent shops and creatives. Day1 - 10 facts about myself:

Its @justacard Indie Week! It’s a celebration of independent shops, creativity, provenance and craft 💥 Day 1 is all about the person behind the brand so here is a picture of....me taking a picture 🤗 #10factsaboutme (I REALLY hate doing these 🤦🏼‍♀️ so bear with!! and thank you for your support of my shop!) 1. My heart belongs to the sea ~ I’m happiest at the beach, especially under the hot Caribbean sun like I have been this weekend! ☀️ 2. For me, the word ‘Vietnamese’ is impossible to pronounce. I marvel at anyone that can do it.
3. I still own an @nextofficial cardigan that I bought in 1997 to wear in the sixth form. I was very preppy in those days. I wore a navy trouser suit to my @lcflondon_ interview (I got a place but was too scared to live in Tooting! How funny @amyjuddart !!) 4. When I’ve lived abroad, I take @paxo_stuffing mix with me and cobble together a roast dinner as best I can.
5. Ben calls me poppet 💕

6. Despite trying to add spaces to my text in @instagram i Can never get them to stay....please share your tricks!! 7. Firain means ‘good, noble, fair and fine’ in ancient Welsh and we are trying to learn Welsh...my maiden name is Griffin so it all seems very fitting!
8. I was named after that naughty Jo in Little Women
9. Aged 10 I was described as both “posh” and “common” and was therefore given the role of Eliza Dolittle in the school production of My Fair Lady 🙅🏼‍♀️ 10. I can speak a little bit of Yoruba ~ e ka ro!! Tell me about yourself!! #justacard #justacardweek #shopindependent #independentshopkeepers #handmadegifts #smallindiebusiness #seekinspirecreate #creativebusinessowner #campaignshopindependent #campaignshopsmall #shopindie

It’s this time of year where small independent businesses need your support more than ever! And that’s why I’m backing @hollytucker’s #campaignshopindependent 🙌🏻 ...
By shopping small this Christmas, even if it’s just one gift, you’re helping indie businesses to grow and continue to do what they love best 💗
A lot of us don’t have huge teams behind us. We design, make, sew, photograph, market, pack and post our products ourselves. So please think about where you spend your money this festive season 💭🎄❤️🎁 Illustration by @rebecca_strickson_illustration

I'd like to say thanks to the people of Woolwich, @thecollective_market and @streetfeastldn for a great day yesterday!

These London skyline Christmas cards were the best seller of the day. Grab yours now over on my Etsy shop. Once they're gone they're gone as I won't be restocking this year. ✉📮 .

Hello, I'm Karen and here's my cheesy face. I'm the less furry, slightly older one! I'm taking part in the @justacard week long challenge. I really enjoy the getting to know people bit, so here's mine for you all to get to know me a bit better 😊

1. I started potting in 2016 after an away day with work. I got the bug and I've now got a very teeny little home studio in our cellar.
.
2. I'm a proud Yorkshire lass and I love living in my home town of Sheffield. I've lived in a few cities, but Sheffield drew me back in.
.
3. I've won a BAFTA for my digital design work. By day, I'm the lead digital designer in a small but mighty digital agency. By night I'm all about the clay.
.
4. I've got one crazy little boy (he's the young one in the pic) who was born weighing only 2lbs10oz, 9 weeks early due to severe pre-eclampsia. Between us we spent 5 months in Jessops Hospital in Sheffield, we both owe our lives to the amazing NHS staff there xxx
.
5. I've got a 'banana skin' sense of humour (that's what my mum calls it anyway). I'm quite likely to laugh if you fall over...I'm sorry, it's not one of my best qualities!
.
6. I always knew I wanted a creative career, I did my degree in graphic design at Staffordshire University and graduated in 2000. Art was always my first love ❤
.
7. I hit the big 40 this year. I don't feel any different!
.
8. I met my husband internet dating 8 years ago. We got married in the castle on Holy Island, less than a month after he proposed to me in Vilnius, Lithuania on New Years Eve.
.
9. I love camping! We're lucky enough to have a motorhome and spend lots of time adventuring in it. We're huge lovers of the Outer Hebrides, with it's vast beaches and wild beauty, it's like no other place on this earth ❤
.
10. I can't watch horror films. I'm very jumpy and my overactive imagination finds it hard to separate fiction and reality.

Hi everyone! so to celebrate @justacard indie week, for our new and maybe older followers too here are 10 things you may not know about us! .
1. I am Alexis, I am the owner, designer, and saleswoman behind Pancho’s Wardrobe. —
2. I have 3 chihuahuas: Pancho the fawn chi, Diego the Merle chihuahua, and Domino ( pictured) who is Diego’s Dad and also a Merle. —
3. We also have a Human baby, who is now 14 months old. He is the reason our account is less active than it used to be, we post a few times a week but we’re aiming to improve that very soon! ( bear with us 😂). —
4. Before Panchos Wardrobe I was a human designer for 10 years. —
5. Pancho is a reactive dog, and we follow and support the yellow dog scheme where it is recognised that all dogs and owners should be helped to be given space from what the dogs fear. —
6. All our clothing is made in India in high quality factories that we have seen and know treat their workers fairly. —
7. Our bandanas and accessories are made by me. —
8. The print on our Hawaiian shirt is also designed by me, so you will never find another hawaiian shirt like it!! —
9. We are totally inspired by the beach and the seaside lifestyle - and are so proud that our nautical Tshirts are our best seller! —
10. Our smallest size is XXS and this fits the tiniest chi. Our jackets and shirts go up to a size M, and our sweatshirts, and selected Tshirts go up to a size Large- which fits a whippet, or a spaniel. -
There you go!

It's #indieweek by @justacard. A fantastic campaign to Support independent businesses in anyway you can, even if it's 'Just a card'. The first day is 10 facts about you...I'm not sure what's going to come out in these 10, so here goes 😂
1. Currently I have 3 businesses and 1 part time job 🙈. 2. I'm happiest when I'm being creative.
3. I used to rollerskate, up until about 6 months ago, sadly my knee doesn't want to do it anymore (one too many injuries).
4. I make stuff, clothes, shoes...I've got a Sneakerkit to make my own trainers 😁, used to make hats too.
5. I built my own kitchen.
6. I like to doodle, but there isn't enough hours in the day!
7. I've had numerous jobs over the years, most recently working in IT, but I'm also a trained conservation picture framer.
8. I've moved that many times I've lost count, favourite place was York.
9. I'd like to live by the sea one day, I can live in hope.
10. I'm pretty random 😊. I've just realised that I haven't even mentioned jewellery!?! I love making jewellery...so much so that I built my own jewellery workshop to teach from.
Go check out lots of other independent businesses that have taken part in this week's challenge. This week, in fact, every week, is all about community, about supporting each other. 🦊

I had to get involved in @justacard Indie Week as this is most definitely a passion and one of the founding reasons for starting Pedddle.
Such a great campaign encouraging people to shop with independent businesses.
_____
I am Nicki the founder of Pedddle. As the week suggests I have to share my 10 facts about me…. 1. I studied art to A level.
2. I love making too, but no one will ever see my work. 🙈

3. I love sharing great markets and supporting makers on Pedddle.

4. I just quit my job to work on Pedddle full time after Xmas - scary stuff. 😰

5. Super proud of my family- for so many reasons (we would be here all night)

6. Pedddle started because I loved markets and couldn’t find them easily and started it as a hobby. Never realised where it would go.

7. I have an amazing husband who has supported me through the rollercoaster that is owning your own business, having a family and losing our little boy.

8. I can do the splits..haha used to do Gymnastics for years!

9. I have just learnt there are no photos of me!! Anywhere!! I have been looking all day. I'm always behind the camera for photos.
10. It was my dad’s dream (mum helped too 😂) to own a house in France and they bought a barn (effectively) and together we did it up and I love it - we have amazing family holidays there now.
