It was worth waiting a few extra days for this book to come in the mail from my favorite independent bookstore from home, @literatibookstore. (Rather than from Amazon.) I had been anxiously awaiting Sick's release, and for the opportunity to support @pchza. Thank you for putting this book into the world. 💕
Just a Card week - day 2, what it means to me. This fabulous campaign supports small creative businesses like mine, where every purchase counts, means the world to us, and enables us to keep going.
It works for any small purchase, but 'just a card' especially works for me as I have lots of card designs and they're my smallest item. So when you buy and send 'just a card' from a small independent business like mine, you are sending a smile and showing you care for the recipient, but also showing your appreciation for a quality creative product that's not mass produced, and supporting that small business too. Isn't that fantastic?
PS a small selection of my cards is shown here, for all occasions, to say whatever you need, even just a hello!
@justacard Day 2- what does the #justacardcampaign message mean to me.
From 1999-2006 I worked in a very, beautiful department store. The staff were mostly graduated art students, from Central St Martins fine artists, ceramicists, fashion designers and many other talented people. Their frustration clearly showed on their faces while dealing with a customer complaining about the tarnish on a tea spoon or some equally trivial complaint of a person with money!
Who would give these artists a space in their art gallery or shop? It was so difficult for them to get a step on the ladder and so they left and who knows what has happened to them. I hope they have had success.
Why should talented people work in a shop or office just to make ends meet? Come on! Let’s all get together and buy a card, a piece of jewellery, a baby bib from an independent designer or artist! Who wants a supermarket greetings card? Check out your local craft market, art gallery or independent shop and buy from there!!! When I heard about the Just A Card campaign and the simply amazing people involved, I thought, ‘YES, someone’s got our back!’ At last, artistic people helping other artistic people to be great, to spread the word!
Thank you to @justacard and to all who have purchased any of my handmade products.
Now, go buy a card. 😉 @davidnarbett 😉@cowdenquiltschool

Tickets are in, for the Ozone Hip Hop Fest! Hosted by yours truly. I haven’t had a show since May by personal choice. Ready to hit the stage again 🙏🏽. 1.) Get a SplitSoul dad cap or SnapBack and ticket for only $30. The hat itself is $20, ticket is $15 so buy a hat, and save $5 either way you look at it.
2.)Get 2 hats and a ticket for $45 saving you $10.
3.) Or you can just purchase a ticket, but you might buy a hat or two at the show. So why not save money HMU 🙏🏽 * If you purchase option 1 or 2 from me. I will also throw in a free flash drive at the show with all the FREEverses I drop from now until Aug. 18th uploaded (night of the show)
Have a blessed day, DM me if you want to meet up soon.
I'm showing support for the awesome @justacard campaign by following their instagram challenge this week.
I'm a day behind so am doing yesterday's this morning... so here goes. Hello 😊 I'm Nicola and I started Life's little blessings 4 years ago because not only do i love being creative but I also wanted to share and spread some positivity and encouragement in the world. LLB is all about enjoying the little things in life. It's about celebrating life's moments, whether they be big moments or a little step taken. It's about creating items that inspire and cause us to encourage one another to pursue and accomplish our dreams and be the best we can be. I do make cards, I embroider and applique signs, quotes and fabric gifts, I also create wooden pyrographed versions and I make jewellery and accessories....all coordinate and compliment one another and all are based on a positive, inspiring quote. LLB is not where I want it to be...yet...but its getting there amd on the way I hope you all enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy making them. Thanks for listening 😊
Not SUPER happy with how Monday's eye look came out, but it's been ages since I wore Datura and I'm glad I broke it out. Did a mass swatch of all my lipsticks over the weekend and looking forward to popping those on here - what an undertaking! ---------------------------------------------

As I mentioned yesterday I'm taking part in #justacard - what is this I hear you ask
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.
If all of my followers bought just a card then it means I get to continue spending lots of quality crafty time with my little monkey. Buying from a small business makes a massive impact not only on the seller but their family as well. I'm proud to be a #mumpreneur and have made a great support group with like minded mum's. I've tagged them in my photo so click on it to find more
#justacardweek day two! 🎉 #justacard for me... = #justaring Like this happy little chap! You may not know how much the smallest purchase means to a small business but the lovely guys running the just a card campaign are shining a light on this very subject. Just buying a card, or in my case a ring, might keep an independent maker open and it definitely feeds their soul. So the next time you see a craft market or browse #etsyhandmade don’t just say ‘that’s nice’ or add to your favourites... go the whole hog & checkout & you’ll be making someone’s heart sing & be keeping their dreams reality. What does the Just A Card campaign mean for me? It’s Just A Ring. 💕💍💕⠀
