Day 2 of @justacard #indieweek •Make an image• Use the logo • Spread the word•

What does Justacard mean to me?... It means supporting fellow makers, small businesses and independent shops... especially this Christmas, it means knowing that you are helping someone keep their passion alive, enabling all indies to keep going.

Every time I hear the Ker Ching from my Etsy app I am so pleased that someone likes my work enough to buy it for someone they love, and yes even if it is ‘Just a card’ it all counts, every small sale means everything to an independent like me. 
So when you’re doing your Christmas shopping this year why not 
Buy local, Buy handmade, Buy independent! Big shops won’t do a happy dance when they make a sale!!

I’m going to try and join in with the @justacard challenge this week but please forgive me for dipping in and out at the wrong times. .
Here are some facts about me:
.
1. I learnt to sew at school when I was 11, & was fortunate to have an amazing art teacher who encouraged me to cross my art with my textiles & my love for freehand embroidery began. 
2. I specialised in weaving at Winchester School of Art, followed by a print designer & colourist for a large furnishing company then went on to produce wallpaper designs for a Canadian company before taking the step to self employment.

3. I started my business in January 2001 with the help of the Princes Trust & by that September had been shortlisted by the Giftware Association as Best Newcomer for having long term potential within the gift & home industry. 
4. For four years throughout my college holidays I worked with a British fashion designer to assist in his studio, making garment samples & dressing models at his London Fashion Week shows. 
5. I can ride, & a few years ago I flew off to Arizona with my best friend to stay on a ranch & ride with the cowboys.

6. I am the daughter of a dairy farmer but dislike milk. 
7. I own a beautiful golden retriever whom I hope to breed from next year. 
8. I have driven a camper van around the North Island of New Zealand. The countryside took my breath away. 
9. I have a large collection of buttons which were given to me by my Grandmother. 
10. I make a rather scrummy chocolate brownie. 
Apologies for using this photo again!

In a bid to be better at spreading the word about my own shop, and because I believe in championing other small businesses too, I’m taking part in the @justacard Instagram challenge this week 🙌 Search the #justacard hashtag to discover loads of amazing independent businesses!
First up is to share 10 facts about me, so here we go...
1. I’m Debbie - designer and laser cutter operator, married to that man in the picture (Ant) & mum to that little one year old in the picture (Darby).
2. I was mates with Ant when I was 17, but we lost touch for 13 years, until I found him on Facebook with long hair and *had* to get in touch (always had a thing for long hair on men 😍).
3. We got married in 2015 and spent the first year of married life living with my mum in my childhood home, due to massively bad luck with our renovation project (@anorthernnest) 😭
4. The first thing I made with my laser cutter was actually Christmas decorations. I stopped selling them here, but you can find them over at @nutkin_and_noodle (little plug for my other shop there 😉).
5. Inspiration for the coasters came later, during my challenge to summit all the Wainwrights in one year (which I *just* managed!) I walked 72 of the 214 alone.
6. I also walked Wainwright’s Coast to Coast on my own, the following year. 
7. Whilst I’m on the subject of Wainwright, we were both born in the same town of Blackburn. I completely understand why he was so in love with the Lakes! 
8. I managed to escape Blackburn for a gap year in Australia, my uni days in Leeds, a year living in York, and a year in Toronto. I will always be a bit sad I didn’t get to stay in Canada.
9. The best decision I made this year was to convince Ant to buy a caravan. I spent my childhood on camping & caravanning holidays, and I’m so excited for Darby to do the same.
10. I’m a massive introvert (INFJ for any Myers-Briggs fans), and struggle with social anxiety (although Ant says I’m good at hiding it 😂). I’m trying to get better, because I‘d like to meet the people I’ve connected with on Instagram 👍 
TLDR: Shop small please! 😁

This verse continues to repeat itself in my head every day, multiple times a day. I credit that to the Holy Spirit. ❤️ I’ve been holding onto a lot of worry and the Lord continues to remind me that worrying isn’t going to change my circumstances or ensure that everything will work out the way it needs to. God knows my future, so I should be clinging to Him and not my own worrisome thoughts. But, to be real honest, most of the time I’m more comfortable with worry than letting go and trusting. ⠀
. ⠀
I’m in the slow process of actively learning how to find peace in all circumstances and taking every thought captive. There are always challenging days ahead and God DOES give us more than we can handle, but when we cling to HIM and not our own strength and understanding, He will give us all the strength and wisdom we need to persevere! ❤️🙌🏻⠀

Day two of #indieweek by the @justacard campaign and today's prompt is to customise and share the #justacard logo to help spread the message. The creatures were totally up for it. For those who don't know, @justacard was set up to encourage people to support wonderful independent businesses by making just one purchase, however small - like a card. It is a direct antidote to the gradual domination of soulless corporate big biz, and the only way we can combat this and promote diversity on our high streets and other shopping venues is to support the independents. Yes, it may cost a little more and there are good reasons for this, but even buying just a card makes a difference to whether that business lives or dies. Personally I feel happy and grateful for EVERY sale I make and that never gets old.

@justacard indie week day 2. What #justacard means for me? 
When I saw the story behind this campaign, I recognized oh, so well the behavioral pattern. Let’s be honest, we all were there at least once in our lives. Sincerely admiring an artist’s or maker’s work and for whatever reason finishing by buying from a big store... It looks ´easier’ or ´safer’ or ´more confortable’ ... It’s not always about the price tag, although I won’t deny, quite often it looks like. But what about the cost? The real one, the cost for the environment, for the society, for the humanity... Let’s make a deal today. To prepare for this end of the year, take some time and buy one present from an indie maker. Only one. A small one. Talk to the recipient about your choice. Give her/him a hug. Close your eyes. Do you see the happy dance of that maker?

JUST A CARD, just a book, just a pin etc!  Our message is so simple yet so poignant. Do you know our story?! All sales mean the world to independents. It's SO IMPORTANT to go further than just say Shop Independent, Shop Local , this is just lip service! For independents to survive we NEED to turn words into ACTION. This message is at the heart of our campaign. We need to work together to make people think. We are told EVERY DAY that our campaign is changing the way people think. That our magic shop window stickers are turning browsers into shoppers. But we have a way to go. So - Today - post an image which promotes the campaign, one you've made, our shop window sticker, our logo or even your pin. Let's make our logo instantly recognisable as THE symbol for Artists, Makers, Independent Shops & Small Businesses. A logo which says you value creativity, provenance and community and, as a JUST A CARD warrior, you're prepared to fight for it, as we have been doing for over 3 years! Share the INDEPENDENT REVOLUTION and let's make Black Friday one amazing alternative - our INDIE FRIDAY! If you agree that every sale means the world then tell us how you feel when you make a sale?! Tell us below in comments what our logo means to you and why it's important to SUPPORT INDEPENDENTS. Let's work together, for everyone, to make this happen. Are you in?! 🙌 .

Today’s challenge for #justacardweek is to use the logo and spread the word - spread the word about how important it is to support small businesses, artists, makers and independent shops. Any purchase, #justacard, is appreciated so much and helps to keep businesses going.  If possible, shop independent this Christmas, even if it’s just a few gifts @justacard @fundingcircleuk #indieweek #makersmovement #justacardcampaign #supportthemaker #shopindependent #shopindependentthischristmas #wemake #wemakecollective #makersgonnamake #makersformakers #wearethemakers #supportthemakers #supportmakers #supportartists #supportsmallbiz #modernmaker #handmadeisbetter #handmadeisbest #indiebiz #smallbiz #shopsmallbiz #etsy #etsyshop #embroidery #handembroidery #handmadedecorations #christmas

Tuesday's prompt for #justacardweek is JUST A CARD, telling the story behind this brilliant campaign. Just a card, just a voucher, just some gift tags made from upcycled Christmas cards… Every sale means so much to independent businesses; every sale adds up. It’s great to hear but telling someone how lovely their shop or stall is doesn’t pay the bills. This Christmas, think about who you’re buying from and this #blackfriday think about the difference you could make to an independent, local business by buying from them rather than a huge multinational company. Today I got an order for some bunting and I’m over the moon. Every order I get I do a happy dance. Keep independent sellers dancing x

It's day 2 of @justacard Indie week on Instagram. The prompt for today is 'Just a card'. This campaign is all about supporting and raising the profile of small indie businesses, and how even buying 'just a card' makes so much difference. But even if you do buy just a card from an indie business, it’s never just ‘just a card’. 💌⠀
Instead, you are helping to enable the future of that business. You are encouraging that person behind that business to go an and create more and better things. You are putting food on the table. You are helping to ensure that our world is filled with beautiful things made by beautiful people.  This christmas, shop independent!⠀
⠀
EVERY little sale means ‘Yes! I’m doing this right!’⠀
🎉 So thanks so much everyone who’s ever bought something of me! 🎉 ⠀

A big thank you for all the feedback / orders for the Christmas decorations so far - I was unsure how they would go down (doubting myself again) but they’ve been so popular! I’ve added another style to my Etsy shop 🌛 and also a bundle offer of 4 for £20 // You can also purchase these at the New Waltham Village Hall Christmas fair on Saturday, so make sure you pop in 👋🏼

Day two of @justacard #indieweek, and today is all about the purpose of Just A Card and it’s message 🙌 
So I decided to do a very simple comic strip to show what it means to me (and because I’m probably going to be terrible at explaining it 😂) Being a creative person that sells work designed all by myself; a little piece of me ends up going into every single card, badge and print of mine.
So when someone is lovely enough to spend their money on something I made, it gives away a tiny piece of all that hard work, determination, anxiety and love that I put into everything I make. 
I think Just A Card has been amazing at highlighting that and praising the little and big crafters who are often only seen on the other side of a craft table, or behind a website or craft shop. Support independents and share the independent revolution 🎉✨

black friday?! no way! we're indie friday - why have black when you can have technicolor?! we are the independent revolution and we say choose creativity, provenance and craft . this friday find amazing artwork by wonderful artists & makers, choose handmade or buy just a book from an independent bookshop, just a gift from a local gallery, just a card from a craft shop. buy local, buy independent. buy from a small business - buy quality! what an amazing day! can't wait to see your images tomorrow. don't forget - if your not feeling creative simply post a pic of your pin, your shop window sticker or even our logo. anything which spreads our message & encourages people to shop independent! have you entered the @fundingcircleuk competition yet?! 😊

I typically don’t photograph my own work. It’s not something I’m remotely comfortable with and I have talented friends like @dude.diana and @riverwynnphotography who make my work look 1000 times more gorgeous than I could. But I just couldn’t help myself with this one 😻

Day 2 of the #justAcard challenge.  My 5 min attempt at the logo! You can spot Holly in the background who has been stationed in front of pepa pig while constructing said logo.  This is one challenge I might just stick to!! #Repost @justacard with @get_repost

JUST A CARD, just a book, just a pin etc!  Our message is so simple yet so poignant. Do you know our story?! All sales mean the world to independents. It's SO IMPORTANT to go further than just say Shop Independent, Shop Local , this is just lip service! For independents to survive we NEED to turn words into ACTION. This message is at the heart of our campaign. We need to work together to make people think. We are told EVERY DAY that our campaign is changing the way people think. That our magic shop window stickers are turning browsers into shoppers. But we have a way to go. So - Today - post an image which promotes the campaign, one you've made, our shop window sticker, our logo or even your pin. Let's make our logo instantly recognisable as THE symbol for Artists, Makers, Independent Shops & Small Businesses. A logo which says you value creativity, provenance and community and, as a JUST A CARD warrior, you're prepared to fight for it, as we have been doing for over 3 years! Share the INDEPENDENT REVOLUTION and let's make Black Friday one amazing alternative - our INDIE FRIDAY! If you agree that every sale means the world then tell us how you feel when you make a sale?! Tell us below in comments what our logo means to you and why it's important to SUPPORT INDEPENDENTS. Let's work together, for everyone, to make this happen. Are you in?! 🙌 .

I SPY with my little eye....something beginning with C?! What could that be....or should we say BBC?? YEP!! You guessed it!! It's a camera and that's Patrick (camera)  and Charlotte (presenter) - We're on TV!!!! On the BBC NEWS 🙌JUST A CARD warriors - WE DID IT! @sarahhamiltonprints has spent this afternoon being filmed about our campaign. First The Guardian & now the BBC (....and....whispers....there's more to come!). It seems our story, volunteers with no capital, people power has hit a spot. Our call to action - our simple yet powerful message is making a difference! THANKS so much for all your images today - we'll take a leisurely look once the frenzied day calms down. WOW! By the way - does anyone have a copy of The Guardian paper with us in it? We've only seen the online version and would ❤️to see the physical article. Let us know! Amazing news about The BBC hey?! Here's to our INDEPENDENT REVOLUTION!! Here's to YOU. 🙌
