Just A Card Week - Tue - What the campaign means to me.
The smaller items (such as my encaustic wax painted key pendants) really do add up and have been the difference of success or disaster at plenty of events I have attended. Every single sale I make encourages me to continue doing what I love, as one item is sold another is painted, a happy dance completed and confidence boosted. Its also a purchase of all those hours of commitment, love and passion that is put into all things handmade. Lastly for me it's about championing the designers, makers, independents, galleries and shops and the creative community it builds that I'm so proud to be part of.
Making that small purchase makes a huge difference and is crucial in keeping small independents in business and providing you will a choice of original, creative, beautiful and interesting things from small indie shops, rather then the mass produced from the high street chains. You really can make a difference by purchasing 'just a card'
