It’s second in the first ever #justacard week - and today is the day to explain what the campaign means to me. Well... for me it’s all about community - sharing experiences and banding together. It can be hard as a one person show or small business - working on your own and trying to juggle it all🏋️‍♀️🤸‍♀️Just a Card has been there to help, by building a community we can all join in with to meet others and share ideas 💡🌈✨ I love designing and making my cards and illustrations, but I couldn’t do any if it unless I sell a few! It highlights how we must support small businesses if we want a diverse and interesting high street (and life!) And It’s also a LOT of fun! #letmecounttheways #everysalecounts (fabulous pin by @angela.chick.illustration and available on the @justacard website!)
Bed, dog cuddles & coffee are my idea of heaven right now. How has your week started? #lifeattheplayhouse

What does the Just A Card Campaign mean to ME? Exactly this. I’ve been selling at markets before when someone will come up with a certain high street coffee in their hands, that you know has cost at least £3.50 and they will comment on how my cards, at £2.50, are expensive. This used to really upset me and it had me questioning MY prices. When I sell a card for £2.50 that isn’t all money straight in my pocket. A very tiny portion of that ends up being profit - but most of it goes into covering costs. Whether that’s materials, taxes, bills, or other running costs. I’m not getting my cards printed overseas for 5p a go because I’m a small business, I can’t deal with those quantities. Each time you buy JUST a card (or just a pin, or just a notebook) from me it helps go towards the big costs of running my business. It helps me keep going. It helps you stay in touch with a friend. It helps your friend feel cared about and thought about. The Just A Card Campaign is such an incredibly supportive community of people. They want to SUPPORT INDEPENDENTS and they want to build people up. Together we can make a hell of a racket about how brilliant indies are. Together we can share our message far and wide. You’re not buying just a card. You’re buying hours of planning. Years of experience. Passion. Skill. Creativity. When you see an independent business sharing their new product, or their message on social media - like it, comment on it, share it (tag them of course!), and next time you have an occasion to buy a card for - head to that small card shop or gallery down the road - head to that small business online - shop small and SUPPORT INDEPENDENTS 💕💕💕 Oh and don’t forget - I’ve got free UK shipping at angelachick.com 😘 #justacard

Hi Everyone, it’s day 1 of a new 5 day Instagram challenge with @justacard , the campaign that reminds everyone that buying #justacard or other handmade item makes a BIG difference to every #smallbusiness 🎁. Today is all about us and our stories… I’m Sinead, founder of @hothaveli the independent lifestyle store, where everything is ethically handmade by our artisans 🤗. I took the leap to set up my creative business nearly 2 years ago after a life in the corporate world and living overseas for 8 years, travelling to my favourite second home India 13 times 😍. Inspired over those years by the amazing handicrafts and wanting to work with women’s organisations and ethical businesses there, I left my job 🤞and headed to Rajasthan for 9 weeks to create & collate our first collection of homeswares, jewellery and accessories. Here's me in my element in Jaipur - how lucky am I!? 🙌 It’s hard work really, but I’m loving the independence, really appreciate every purchase and definitely rely on support from our community of like-minded buyers 🤗. Our website www.hothaveli.com hosts most of our products but I also love to take our new pieces to artisan markets and events around London. It’s great to meet our lovely customers and receive fab feedback face to face🤓. Not to mention meeting and learning from the amazing community of independent creatives that I meet along the way🙋. Looking forward to ‘meeting’ more of you this #justacardweek 😗 x #hothaveli #handmadebyartisans #justacard #justacardweek #smallbusiness #happydance #supportsmall #lifestyle #homewares #jewellery #accessories #supportsmallbusinesses #handmade #handmadeisbest #uksmallbusiness #wemakecollective #bestmadehandmade

Hello! Well...its a rare occurrence, but here's my super smiley face whilst I was on holiday with my girls in Porto, with a cocktail in hand. I am always happy when I have a cocktail in hand and when I'm on holiday! But I'm also pretty happy when I'm crafting. I make all sorts! From table plans and wedding signage to handmade cards and framed pieces. I love making peoples ideas come to life - getting positive reviews or great feedback is so important to small business owners. It makes me so happy when I know that I've made something for someone's special occasion and the recipient has loved their gift or guests have commented on their table plan. The whole reason for my cheesey grin here on my insta grid is to spread awareness of the @justacard campaign. Today's post prompt is all about the person behind the business....so here I am! Small business owners need all the help they can get and knowing that you've got someone like the #justacard movement backing you is a great feeling. Buying from a small business not only makes you feel good... but it makes us feel pretty special too! #justacard #campaign #handmade # #cards #gifts #lettering #handlettered #ukletterers #buyhandmade #smallbusiness #support #happydance #etsy #uksmallbusiness #kent #thingsmadebyjo
Full house for day one in #Bridgend 🎉
This weekend i was a bridesmaid for my brother and sister in laws wedding. I made a colour matching necklace. Only got one pic with little man chewing it- see awkward pic of me lifting him in the air while being strangled. Do you like the colours on this necklace? If so shall i offer it as a new style? #bridesmaid #chewlery #trendyteether #siliconeteethingnecklace #hexagonteethingnecklace #teethingjewellery #siliconebeads #nursingmum #teethingbaby #teethingsolutions #babyshowergift #shopsmall #uksmallbusiness #mumaboss #numonday

This arrived! She’s taking the same approach to running errands in my rental car as she did in her epic 4day journey back here - sleeping it off! I could not ask for or imagine a better companion or all round pick me up - my shadow 💕💕💕 #uksmallbiz #uksmallbusiness #womansbestfriend

Hello #justacard week! This is me 👋 (in the apron) at a recent @imadeit_myself event, doing some origami teaching. My name is Victoria, and I am an Illustrator, paper artist, origami enthusiast and a part of team @justacard ! 🎉 I do many things including selling my illustrated cards and whatnot on @Etsy , commissions ✏️ and workshops. I’ve been freelancing since 2014 and apart from all things colourful and papery - I love 💗 charity shop bargains, 80s movies, and just about any craft I can try my hand at! (most recently arm knitting and weaving) This week it’s time to break out the bubbly and celebrate small business all over social media with @justacard. Can’t wait to meet you all! 📸 @imadeit_myself

Tomorrow kicks off Just A Card Week organised by @justacard - here are the prompts you can expect to see inspiring my feed and the feeds of many other small businesses from card shops, to jewellery makers, book shops, pin peddlers, illustrators, painters and loads of others. The Just A Card Campaign is all about supporting small businesses. It spreads the message far and wide that when you make a purchase from a small business, even just a card, it’s never JUST a card (or just a ring, or just a pin, or just a notebook). These small purchases add up and keep small businesses running. Want to take part? Follow the @justacard on Instagram, sign up for their newsletter, make some small (or large) purchases from small businesses and check out the hashtag #justacard to see what others are doing to take part. Spread the message - SUPPORT INDEPENDENTS! Who’s with me?? 🙌🙌🙌

Sunday’s are sometimes for relaxing and spending time with loved ones. Other times Sundays, for me, are for putting in the work that makes my business run smoothly. Even though I automate much of my business, I have to take days to schedule things like my social media management. So that I can spend the rest of my time helping my clients get the most from their business time.
Loving this camera that has just arrived from @_mimis_makes_ . Don’t the colours just pop?! Callie is going to love having her own camera to take pictures of mummy instead of always being the model 😂 #handmade #woodenprops #props #camera #toycamera #woodencamera #shopsmall #shopsmallbusiness #uksmallbusiness #shophandmade #coloursthatpop

And there you have it, after 3 years in the Utah high desert, I am returned to this quintessentially English pastoral scene. Complete with 🐇 in view, air that’s ever so slightly too cold to not wear a jumper and the everyday thrill of a cup of tea outside. 🤗 Everything is alien, yet familiar, but it’s lovely to be in the same country as my business and its customers again. Onwards! #uksmallbiz #uksmallbusiness #britishsummertime #englishcountryside

Gorgeous caipirinha. My favourite cocktail. Super sharp lime, a hint of mint & a generous splash of booze.
