The people have spoken!! Those of you that enjoy a pom seem to prefer faux fur 🦊 But don’t despair if you didn’t win in the polls—I’ll have options for both no pom and yarn poms available as well. I’m hoping to have this listed in time for Black Friday, so keep your eyes peeled 👀 .

🍃 I’m so in love with this room pray. I even spray it on my clothes when leaving the house. Room sprays are the best, because even when some odors may enter they keep a refreshing smell in the room. This is honestly my favorite so far. I got it as a gift for someone but I ended up staying with instead I liked it too much. 🌿⠀

Can you think of a great little shop that you loved…that has now closed down?
.
We love going shopping and finding wonderful little shops full of quirky and wonderful things that you do not see elsewhere and certainly not in high street chains (or online giants).
.
They will disappear if we don’t buy from them.  They ARE disappearing now. .
Even if you just buy a card it will make a difference, it will help keep that shop open. So it will still be there next time you need it 🎉🎁
.
Thanks to @justacard for their great work!

"If everyone who'd complimented our beautiful gallery had bought 'just a card' we'd still be open"

The JUST A CARD campaign aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.
Some people say they do a little dance when they get a sale....anyone who knows me knows I don’t dance! But it does make me happy, and helps me to keep going. If you can, shop independent this Christmas, even just one gift.

Boho Christmas ornaments are now available in the Good Day Sunshine Goods Etsy shop! Each of these handmade ornaments are unique and made with a gorgeous textured wool yarn hung on a natural piece of wood. Add some bohemian spirit to your tree, or on top of packages. And....When Christmas is over, they double as mini wall hangings!

Hi! So yesterday I told you about myself for @justacard but what is the project about?
It is the brainchild of @sarahhamiltonprints and aims to promote independent businesses by making people aware that even small purchases are important. If our towns / villages are to retain their identities, they need small, independent retailers, cafés, galleries etc and for these havens to survive we need to use our purchasing power! We love to wander into a carefully curated gift shop, but make sure you buy something too, every penny counts even if it is, 'just a card' (hence the name!).
So here is my take on the campaign's logo - look out for it in windows of your favourite local shops, and if you don't see it, tell them about the campaign!

Day 2 of #justacard INDIE WEEK
JUST A CARD
Here are my cards. Creating greeting cards is an incredibly important part of my creative journey. I can't not make them...I love cards, I always have...I have collected hundreds of greeting cards over the years and now for me it's about designing fun cards that people want to keep, send and love. .
Featured here are 3 different designs that are all available on my website at www.lucygell.com all designed by me #lucygell .
1.The first card is a 3D Bumble Bee card that is part of a range of cards I have been making now for about 7 years. Others include, a Guinea Fowl, Owl and a Robin.
2.The next 2D Cockerel card is one of 6 farm animal inspired cards...I quite like this one.
3.Then lastly...a 3D dye cut Border collie card. This has definitely been the most popular of the 4 different designs. The 3 other designs are a bear, a cat and a badger. .

@justacard inspired me! They are on the other side of the pond, but their movement is close to my heart. So, without further delay, here are my 10 things to know (right now). After reading my post, go check them out!
*
*
1. I love making useful things for myself and those around me.
*
2. I haven't bought a pair of socks in over 15 years. I might be crazy, but I have knit all of my socks!!
*
3. I can knit just about anything, although I really don't make stuffed toys very well.
*
4. My Mountain Woolies fingerless gloves have sold more than 150 pairs in the last few years, and it delights me when people say they are still wearing what I created. (At the moment, I am only taking private orders. I wish I had time to do a show or pop up shop this year, but my other job has me swamped.)
*
5. Speaking of other jobs, my full-time job is as an Administrative Officer with the U.S. National Park Service. Go Rangers!
*
6. I have lived in some cold and snowy places. These places totally inspire my pieces.
*
7. I wear a uniform to work, but on my days off in the winter, you can bet I am wearing a sweater. Most often hand knit. ;)
*
8. I have very talented friends, and I love supporting their art and surrounding myself with handmade goodies at home. It brings my friends in spirit to the remote places I live and work.
*
9. A part of me has also always wanted to be a writer. I have done a lot of small-time stuff, including knitting patterns, but I really want to work on a couple of books. The last couple of years, I have realized that also includes spending time in NYC and Washington, DC. Been to Washington many times, but never the Big Apple. Anyone out there have a couch I can crash on for a few nights?
*
10. In addition to the fiber arts, I have done a bit of lampworking and leather work. I would love to start making my own purses!
*
*
Thanks for reading. :) I really love seeing everyone's projects here on IG. So much love and inspiration!

Pom or not to Pom 🤔// I can’t decide which I like better on this #onnibeanie
1) faux fur Pom
2) giant yarn Pom (I’ve got a xl maker coming in the mail!)
3) no pom // How do you like your winter hats? Help a girl out and let me know in the comments! .

Mañana es un día muy especial. Estaré como ponente hablando de Tecnologías Educativas en la Universidad de O'Higgins junto con personas que han dejado su huella en la educación.🔥 Soy una fiel creyente de que los profes no tienen que ser expertos en programación, robótica o impresión 3D, pero sí tienen que ser guías en el aprendizaje de esto y muchas otras cosas.

Al final, el contenido lo tiene Google pero el conocimiento se logra a través de tu capacidad para motivar y crear experiencias pedagógicas que impacten a tus estudiantes lo suficiente para realizar cambios en sus vidas.

Mañana se prende con las #CharlasMake 🤓
