Fellow creativity lovers did you know it’s #justacard week? 💛 . Today’s all about introductions so here is a bit about me. (Without repeating my #marchmeetthemaker too much (if you’re interested in more of an essay 🤦🏼♀️ scroll down on my feed to find me on the top of a welsh mountain)) . So hi 👋🏻 I’m Sophie, an artist based in Bath, UK with a love of the colour yellow, chai tea, plant based food and drawing little details as teeny tiny as I can on all sorts of things - from leaves to windows and walls, oh and occasionally paper. ✏️ . Thank you to @alka.lloyd for this photo!
Super excited to receive a box full of Louisiana sawdust today from @rockingcwoodworks Oh, and there was a @ryobipowertools orbital sander and a pack of @gatorfinishing sanding discs as well. I won this in a drawing he had a couple of weeks back. You can tell he put this thing to good use and I will definitely do the same. Thanks Clint! Go check him out and follow him if you don’t already. Great builder and great dude!

Today is the start of #justacardweek It’s a week of prompts to celebrate makers and to spread the fantastic @justacard message. If everyone who visited a gallery or craft fair who loved the artwork just bought a card to support the maker or gallery it would make a huge difference to those independents in keeping going! So Day one is about #you the maker. So we at @higherfordmill in Barrowford are a creative bunch and there have been artists here for over 15 years. We come together to help support and promote each other through exhibitions and open studios. We are a mix of artists, crafts people, writers, photographers, jewellers and much more all at various stages of our careers but we help, encourage and celebrate with each other and eat cake of course The #justacard campaign is a brilliant idea to help artists and independent galleries to keep going in today’s environment. We have a collection of artist cards on display that you can mix and match 5 cards for £10 or £2.50 each. See we aren’t expensive but sometimes card sales are the only things that keep us going. Our artists are @redcurrantglass @ju1iemiles @eddiedaviesart @iceblink @nitaburrows @mickredmayne @memoryboutiquephotography @awlco @artsaflutter @statorart @georgiannacardoso @wendyjewels001 @patriciaramsden @hesketh.joejoe @jomashart @naked_raver @roghesketh @phil_hargreaves & Simon Clarke So we are shouting out, loud and proud about #us#makers#creatives and joining together to help promote and encourage each other to keep on going Thanks for reading this far 😁😁😁 #marchmeetthemaker#makermovement#justacard#makers#makersgonnamake#makerlife#makercommunity#makersofinstagram#makerfamily#supportsmallbusiness#supportthemakers#wearethemakers#makersformakers#wemakecollective#sharinghandmadejoy#modernmaker
Always Remember where you’ve started! Because everything didn’t just came from chance. Everything which is now a blessing didn’t just come within one day. It takes time to see a blessing come to light. It can take time for us to reach our blessing. We must be ready, we must wait patiently. Because it is coming! ——————— Within my four years of knitting and building up Elizabeth An’Marie, I have not giving up. I’ve learnt so much throughout this journey. I learnt to be patient, I’ve learnt to handle money in the right ways. And I’ve finally discovered my voice, my style for the brand. ——————— “Making Pastel and unique knit, for that it girl. Who doesn’t care what people have to say. Because she can do whatever she wants” ✨ ——————— In photo: Millicent Highneck jumper I made back in 2016 for our Winter Spring 16/17 Collection
