Getting juice before another day of sewing / painting / collaborating with @hahcouture in the Bay Area. Hah made everything she is wearing and the red jumper and belt I’m wearing here.
.
Remember to #supportindependentartists - Hah sells all kinds of really unique mesh onesies and multi piece “matching separates” that are hand painted and super comfy!!

The theme for Day 3 of #justacardweek is community & taking the opportunity to come together as a supportive community of independent artists, makers & retailers to promote each other.
I guess I should have read the prompts before I started as this is what I’ve been trying to do all week with my posts promoting my #justacard week purchases & SHOUT OUTS. I’m going to continue do both of these things all week & this post shows a summary of my purchases & shoutouts so far. All the fabulous makers are tagged so tap to see who made each of these beautiful things. #kindness #support #supporteachother #supportive #supporting #supportsmallbusiness #supportindependentartists #supportingsmallbusinesses #actionsspeaklouder #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #doasyousay #actionsnotwords #walkingthewalk #walkthewalk #etsyfinds #shoutout #promoteeachother #promoteothers #community #handmade #handcrafted #unique #special #treasures

#justacard Day three: Community.
One of the things I enjoy most about the creative community is how accepting they are of new people. Everyone is appreciated for their talents and supported as an individual. On the physical side of things I am lucky to be a member of @bridge_arts_in_uckfield who have so many talented artists that I wouldn’t know where to start in tagging them so do go over and visit their page for yourself. I also have creative friends made through work, like the lovely @snobbltd ladies, and even older friends from school such as @er_illustrator!
Through my social media sites I have also found many people who have supported me and come to my workshops and shows, sometimes just to say hello, and the online community is as real a support as the physical community.
I hope that we can all go on cheering each other to success and sharing our stories and artwork!

Community. Day 3 in the #justacard campaign. I have been fortunate to know some incredible makers and doers. One of the first is @amitymasonphoto who is now branching into @amitymasondesigns- a whole new concept for her. @_lola_arts_ is always keeping it real. @wingshawaii is always evolving with the market. @cakemediamaui are two more amazing ladies providing social media managment! @sarahwilliamscollections blows my mind. @littleseagypsy is making it happen! Local shops that support local people- @ohiaboutiquemaui @ilovehanaartboutique @hakubundo @goinleftmaui I am constantly inspired by @liliarnoldstudios @patricia_zapata @abigailjedwards @geninne @pascalcampionart @kaoru_sanchez @jessicaswift @goinghometoroost @uppercasemag phew! So much talent it can overwhelm, yet we manage to all creat something new!!! ❤️ #artistsatwork #justacardweek #supportindependentartists

@londoncushions.co.uk Lavender Heart with mother of pearl buttons - gorgeous!! I’ve admired this lovely little heart for a while now and was so happy that it was still available as my Wednesday #justacardweek purchase. I am already the proud owner of two of Naila’s hand made treasures & am happy to add this to my collection! Naila makes the most fabulous cushions as well as other things. Even my cushion hating OH likes my Naila cushion. So do pop over to Naila’s feed & drop her a follow (if you’re not already following) and take a squiz at her Etsy shop it’s jam packed with beautiful treasures!!!! #smallbusiness #support #supporteachother #supportsmallbusiness #supportindependentartists #cushions #lavenderheart #handcrafted #handmade #handmadeisbest #madewithlove #justacard #unite #community #standtogether #gotakealook #beautiful #unique #follow #doasyousay #actionsspeaklouder #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #treasures #walkingthewalk #actionsnotwords #independentmaker

Today I am sharing the love for @justacard as the theme is community. One of my favourite makers is @tinyscenic , I adore their tiny town Americana jewellery and was so lucky to have them take part in my @artistsopenhouses . I also wanted to mention @museumartcraft because not only do@they have inspiring exhibitions on, they also have a fantastic gift shop that has an ever-changing range of local artists products for sale, from #ceramics to #jewellery and many other things in between.

Worked on some more #miniature #ceramic #landscapes last night these two are ready and #forsale $40 each or $75 for the pair and hell I’ll even cover shipping (if it’s domestic) ‘cause that’s the kinda guy I am or I can arrange local pickup if you live in the SF Bay Area. They’re approximately 5x1 inches each. #independentartist #supportindependentartists #ceramicarts #acrylic #interiordesign #interiordecoration #original #oneofakind #butactuallytherearetwo #bayareaartist #atomswanart

12 years ago before I had social media, I predicted the phonies and fakes (look through your newsfeed to spot them) in my first book “Sketches of Verbal Alchemy.” If you like this, there are 500 other ones like it. #phonies #fakes #sketchesofverbalalchemy #amazonprime #supportindependentartists #iseeyou #youdontfoolme #chooselife #socialmediakills

Today's prompt for #justacard week is Recommendations.
Oh my days we could be here a while! My feed is literally FULL of incredibly talented people!
I LOVE my new pinafore dress made just for me by a lady who owns a new sewing shop in my nearest town! She's not on Instagram but you can find her on Facebook ("Stitches" in Gorleston) ✂️FYI to the stall holders for the market on July 1st: this is probably what I'll be wearing! ✂️
I would also highly recommend @irislovesuk @thenightfeed @silverloreartworks @in_like_flynn_ @ellywoof2017 Their work is gorgeous and I've been super impressed with their excellent customer service! 👍🏼 Also check out @cloudsevenobsession @rosarrowsmith @enchanted_resin @daisydollsbyjodolton @pebblehutbynina and @andreawrightdesigns
I could go on and on but that's enough for now! 🙌🏼💕✂️✨

And where would a girl be without her producers??? My songs that I wrote on acoustic guitar or piano turned into these beautiful, colorful arrangements that I had never even imagined possible. I love every note on this record, and couldn't be more proud. @packylundholm & @danmoulder - you both amaze me. Thank you, there's no way I could have done it without you.❤️

Wednesday’s #justacardweek S H O U T O U T goes to Hayley @hayley_mallett
If you follow Hayley (and honestly you should) you will have seen her adorable beaded fruit jewellery, all of which is incredibly reasonably priced especially if you take a moment to consider all the love, talent & time poured into every one. I want to highlight Hayley’s textile wall art which is insanely beautiful, and is available as original pieces as well as giclee prints. Take a look, drop her a follow, browse her Etsy Shop... you never know you might just find that perfect something you’ve been looking for. And if you do it will be super special because it is uniquely beautiful & made full of love, passion & talent. #justacard #support #supporteachother #checkitout #gotakealook #fabuloustalent #beadjewelry #textileart #artist #textileartist #supportsmallbusiness #supportindependentartists #unite #community #handmade #independentmaker #etsyshop #standtogether #shoutoutforshoutout #greatetsyfinds #beautiful #actionsspeaklouder #actionsspeaklouder #walkthewalk #wallart

@justacard week day 3 - Community

So to spread the love today I am going to share with you my best friend Hannah King (@hannahfnking). She is amazingly talented and has been creating lots of lovely wedding stationary and illustrations so check out her page @freya.niamh.design  you won’t regret it! We have both continued to support each other through uni and now out in the big wide world as both of our dreams are to make our passion for design into our sole incomes! 🧡 #justacardweek

Today for the @justacard campaign they are asking us who are our favorite independents. This is like asking who is your favorite child!

While rushing out the door this morning I took this photo of some of my recent purchases. But there is sooooo many talented people I am lucky to know...and have discovered via Instagram.

This weekend I plan to visit two of my local shops and buy a card because I want to help keep them in business and show how appreciated they are.
@jouwmarktkraammaastricht and @oila.concept.store I hope you have cards in stock!

Who are your favorite independent shops or creatives?
.
Will you be buying a card from an artist or independent this week?

Just a friendly reminder that I'm off on a little holiday today and will return on Monday.

My shop will be staying open while I'm away and orders will be sent on Monday with the remaining ones from this week, with gifts included for your patience 🙏my sale will still be running too, use the code 'SUMMERSALE' for 30% off your order!

Day 3 of @justacard is "Community" so I wanted to share and tag a handful of the makers and designers that have inspired me over the last couple of years to pick up a pencil again. Which was something I hadn't really done since college. I've told the story before of how I accidentally stumbled across an Etsy fair in London and learnt there were people out there who are independently selling their work and that it is an achievable thing to do. I've been trawling craft fairs and markets since and these are a few photos from over the years and that one time I picked up about 30 business cards so I could find everyone on Instagram when I got home! 🤣🧡🤦‍♀️ #justacard #artistsofinstagram #makersofinstagram #smallbusiness #shopindependent #supportsmallbusiness #supportindependentartists #smallbiz #handmade #diy #market #craft #business #girlboss #community

The happiest moment on my holiday was seeing common dolphins and pilot whales on a boat trip! I was so honoured that I got to see both... this is the best shot I got of the common dolphin. They would glide under the surface and spring into an arch over the waves. It was so quick but so beautiful, and I was appreciative of the live function on my iPhone so I could capture a few albeit brief shots! The moment we saw them was breathtaking 😍 in honesty I love the sea, and I really want to get on with painting my whale paintings now. Especially after my tuition with the lovely @veroniquecoleart I’ve ordered myself some acrylic retarder, and a new colour suggested by Veronique and I want to treat myself to a ceramic paint palette and some new brushes. (Any purchases you make will be really helpful in allowing me to do that) if you’ve managed to read all of this, thank you!! But I wanted so much to show you the fabulous dolphins I got to see and express how grateful I am!! #dolphins #whales #boattrip #tenerife #sea #etsysalenowon #etsy #etsyshop #etsyseller #etsyartist #supportsmallbusiness #supportindependentartists #shopsmall #painter #artist #art #nofilter #holiday #mk #miltonkeynes #miltonkeynesbusiness #womanentrepreneur #woburnsands #bespokeart #gift #acrylicart

It's Day 3 of #justacard Week! And todays prompt from @justacard is 'Spread the love'
.
Well this is easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!! I love SOOO many awesome artists and makers and could literally list hundreds of amazing peeps here, but a long list of all my fav things might be a bit annoying so here are just a couple of fab friends that I have worked with recently...
.
Fav Shop - has to be the lovely Sean from @austinandco who stocks @dottydogart cards and who I met in person at PG Live recently - a top bloke who loves dogs!
.
Fav supplier - the very gorgeous Kate from @wellhungframing - I love to support local makers and Kate is my lovely local framer who hand makes all my beautiful frames. She recently supplied a number of frames for my trade stand and they looked super-lush!
.
Fav maker - arghhh it's not as easy as I thought it would be... I really can't pick just one... so I'm going with my most recent PG Live trade stand buddies. It was lovely to catch up and see all their awesome work up close, they are a huge source of inspiration to me and are all epic beyond words... @amylouisedesign @paperwhalecards @tattersfield_designs @cluckvictoria @louisemulgrew @singingchicken00 @hatchedart @nwhgreetings .
I’m sharing more awesome peeps over on my IG stories today too.😉
.
Have a great day - I love you all!!!! 😘xxxx

Back in stock! These cheeky cat pins from England are designed with literary fans in mind, and created by the lovely Rio (@litemporium) 🐱📖.
.
Each pin comes with its own old-school library card, which (for the young’uns out there) is what we older people used to fill out every time we checked out a physical book from a physical library 📚.
.
(Speaking of which, did you know that you can sign up for a *free* membership at your local library and download an app that gives you free access to all the e-books and audiobooks your county owns? Technology and tax dollars at work! 👍🏼).
.
Don’t forget - *tomorrow* (Wednesday 6/20), adopt your pin (and cat!) on board #mooncatcafe at our adoption event with @zoeysplacerescue and @pussandpooch in Belmont Shore! 10% of all proceeds will go directly to support the fantastic work of local non-profit cat rescue #zoeysplacerescue!
.
See previous post for event details 🐱🎉.

Day 2 of the @justacard is what Just a Card means to me. Well, me making a sale no matter how small means making that little bit extra to help pay for things. Like school trips and days out with my babies. Me working from home enables me to always be there for assemblies and sports days and all those little things for my kids. I can work around my family and every sale, even the ones that are only a couple of quid, count toward me being able to continue doing what I love. 😊❤️

A selection of my artist cards range for Day 2 of the #justacard Instagram challenge.

To me the campaign stands for supporting independent artists, galleries and shops. It makes you feel good to buy from independents and small businesses and it's so important that we don't end up with just 1 giant mega-shop that sells everything 😅

Seriously though, creativity is important and should be celebrated and supported ✌🏽 #justacardweek #shopsmall #smallbusiness #supportindependentartists #independentshop #contemporaryillustration #indiescene #supportsmallbusiness #artistsofinstagram #etsyseller #etsyuk #artistonetsy #greetingcards #cardseller #buyart #snailmail #birthdaycard #artistcards

Day 2 of #justacardweek is what does #Justacard mean to you?
.
I put a lot of time and effort into all my work, even working silly hours sometimes to make sure all orders are shipped on time or new products are available. Even when it’s got mega busy over here, I’m still so grateful for every single order and when the going gets tough with working on my ‘day job’ AND working on my business (a lot of the time, in the same day*) I rise to the challenge and thank my lucky stars that you guys are letting me do this! *mostly talking about Christmas .
There are quieter times too and when the ‘kerching’ sound goes off on my iPad I thank people in my head or out loud as well as putting in a personalised note into everybody’s order to say a massive THANK YOU! You guys with every sale you have made – however big or small have allowed me to keep applying my illustrations to new products, have a lovely little home studio to work from and help make my dream a reality. As much as it is about sales, it’s also about the feeling part of a community of independents too – some of the people at markets and online that I have met have been so lovely! Theirs a real sense of ‘we’re in this together’ and that’s cool to be a part of!
.
The customers that buy my products are also THE BEST and every lovely review or message received fills my face with all the smiles. I really appreciate the time you take to let me know how much you love the thing your purchased – it inspires me to keep going.
You guys are totally RAD.

So today is day 2 of #justacardweek and the prompt for today is what does the phrase ‘just a card mean to me’ in relation to buying one of my @bettyrosecreations handmade items. Well the message to me means TRUST. When you buy from a small independent business you can have TRUST that the trader believes in the item. •In this day and age we are all rushing to and fro and it’s often the case we pick up all our items from one big Supermarket or large conglomerate. However, if we can just take a moment every now and then to stop and think 🤔. Do we know who made the item? Was that person treated fairly? •What country does the item come from? Do they have good workings conditions? What is the item made from? Does it contain harmful chemicals? •Just because it’s a large brand name can I TRUST them? •If you can’t answer these questions then is it really worth buying the item because it’s a pound or couple of pound cheaper than the trader at the artisan market who can tell you everything you need to know and probably more about their product. •Here’s to all those small businesses and traders that put love, time and effort into their products so that customers receive a trustworthy product. #justacardweek #supportindependantbusinesses #justacardcampaign #supportindependentartists #bettyrosecreations #waxmelts #etsy #essentialoilcandles #essentialoilwaxmelts #lovemycustomers #alchemy #magic. 📷 shows items made or used within Bettyrose Creations products #naturalproducts #naturalingredients

What does the @justacard campaign mean to me? It’s given me support and encouragement, it’s given me tips and exciting new ideas. It has brought me together with fellow independents and made me feel like I am not working on my own but I am part of a big network and in touch with like-minded, wonderful, talented creative people. The work the @justacard team put in on top of their own careers is phenomenal and they are amazing! #justacard #justacardweek2018 #supportindependentartists

“So many people will tell you ”no”, and you need to find something you believe in so hard that you just smile and tell them ”watch me”. Learn to take rejection as motivation to prove people wrong. Be unstoppable. Refuse to give up, no matter what. It’s the best skill you can ever learn.”
Charlotte Eriksson. It takes guts to be an independent artist and put your work out there and hope that someone will appreciate your work. Don’t you want to support someone putting themselves out there in the most genuine, heartfelt way? Where else can you find that kind of risk?

#justacard Day Two: What the message means to me.
I am very grateful to receive so many lovely comments about my work and my designs. At craft fairs I have endless chats with people about their experiences with embroidery, how family members would create amazing presents and the memories that viewing my work has stirred up in them. I love having these conversations and hearing the stories however often after the conversation finishes, that person will tell me to carry on and move away without buying anything. Unfortunately the percentage of people this happens with is higher than those that buy and without the people who buy from me I will not be able to carry on. I have recently taken the plunge to try and expand my business, relying on Etsy sales, craft fairs and workshops to pay the bills so this #justacardcampaign means more to me now than ever.
It means so much when somebody buys just a card as it not only makes me giddy inside in a personal sense, but also, when the card is sent to someone else, passes my message and design along, potentially increasing my own sales. Thank you to everyone who has bought a card (or more), it means the 🌎 to me!! 😘

@justacard Day 2 - What our message means to you.

Just a card is all about encouraging people to support independent shops. This message is important to me as every time someone makes a purchase from my shop I know they have chosen my design over a large corporation. By supporting independent businesses you are supporting the creativity and passion of the individuals. I love knowing that my design is going to be shared with someone else in the world. 🧡🧡🧡 (This picture was created using my Silhouette Cameo 3 cutter, it’s the machine I use to create all my matching confetti upgrades!) #justacardweek

It’s #justacard week on instagram. If you don’t know about the campaign check it out. Every time you buy even something small like just a card from an independent shop, artist or maker it is more than just a card, you are supporting us and keeping us going. I am so appreciative of every single purchase, it allows me to carry on doing what I love and creating new designs. To say thanks for your support I’m running a 20% off everything sale in my Etsy shop. Link in bio.

Bore Da :) I’m a little slow off the mark with joining the Just A Card challenge; but here I am :) I’m fully in support of the Just A Card campaign; raising awareness and encouraging people to value and support independent shops, makers, creatives and artists.
So here’s a little of my Story:
I’m Sophie Spooner, my little business is called A Lovin’ Spoonful and I’m a poet and papermaker. I also write stories, articles and blogs.
I live in rural West Wales and I love it here. I love being outside in the fields and hills, wandering down by the river and through the country lanes. It’s here I feel a part of it all; at One; and I feel inspiration. Mostly I wander and words just come and I gather wild grasses and flowers, Moss, and other treasures to use in my paper making. I also love to get to the coast as often as I can and there’s such a freedom I find here; it refreshes and revives. I use shells in my creations and seaweed paper is one of my favourites to make! I love to buy handmade and to support other creatives. Buying just a card, or just a candle, or just a piece of paper, really means everything to the person who made it; with their love, care, skill and time. Thank you. With Love. #justacard#justacardcampaign#justacardweek#makersofinstagram#creatives#supportartists#supportsmallbusiness#supportmakers#supportcreatives#supportindependentartists#buyhandmade#bestmadehandmade#makersformakers#me#mystory#papermaker#poet#sunshine#summersmiles#smiles#summertime#countrysidewalks#naturelovers#wander#countrylanes#countrygirl#ilovebeingoutside#natureinspires#wildflowers#slowliving

This week there is an initiative organized by @justacard to celebrate and support independent arts and crafts.
Today people are sharing what this campaign means to them.

This is my first purchase that supported independent makers. I think I was 12 or 13 years old and at school there was an opportunity to buy a piece of art - but only kids were allowed in the room. The idea being that you buy something you like rather that something your parents thought you should buy. In my case I had done my research and knew who the famous New Zealand artists were. So my reasons for supporting handmade were not really altruistic back then.

Today my reasons for buying handmade are more about what sort of behavior do I want to encourage, what values I think are important and what world do I want to live in.

Every time you buy something there is a cost beyond the price of the item. Time I had to spend at work rather than with my family to earn the money. Materials that impact our environment to different degrees and profit that can go to a corporation or a maker.

When I buy from independents I’m expressing my preferences for a more artistic, creative, meaningful world.

So it’s @justacard week and probably about time we introduced ourselves (for those that don’t know us). We are Richard and Judi Watkin and we never set out to create a new business in our middle to late age. Richard is a retired teacher and I worked in marketing for a large part of my career. It all started in 2014 when Richard took part in Dorset Art weeks and sold all his original paintings, so it was back to the easel where he set about painting more iconic scenes of Dorset. We purchased a Canon Pro 1 Giclee printer and I built a website and set up the various social media platforms. In Easter 2015 we took part in our first craft fair and we haven’t looked back since. Richard paints everyday in his studio at the bottom of the garden whilst listening to radio 6 and I do the printing, social media and admin from my home office listening to cheesy 70’s music 🎧
