Something blue? 💙💦💎 It's been a very garter-y (that's a word, right?) week - I had the honour of posting this beauty out to a bride-to-be in Bath, then I packed up another pretty for one of my oldest pals who's getting hitched, AND I've been working on a custom garter with tiny pearls and a deep blue ribbon! 👌🏼Definitely ready for the weekend now. I'm headed to a hen afternoon tea today. What are your plans?
Happy colour for a happy Friday! Stepping into the weekend with an armful of flowers, as per. 💐 If you're in need of a bright sash belt, I've got you covered. Psst! These ones are made with vintage lace! ❤️ Photography @lesleymayfieldphotography
Look what's just landed on my doormat - the latest @vowmag 🎊 I'm totally delighted to have my luxe garters featured inside (swipe to see!) - doesn't @lesleymayfieldphotography pic of @elle.jay.tea rocking the purple garter look fab?! 💕🙌
Say yes and be kind - those are the lessons I try to live by with my little creative biz. Stepping out of your comfort zone and pushing your craft is what keeps you learning and growing. And being kind is perhaps the most important thing, to others and to yourself! #marchmeetthemaker

One of the things I love most about Bristol is the incredible community of makers and creative wedding suppliers that there is! I'm thrilled to be part of @bristoletsyteam and @holisticweddinghub and to have met so many lovely folks through local wedding events and @weddinghelperuk tweet-ups. Bristol lovelies, if you fancy collaborating or a creative biz catch up over cake, you know where I am! 🙊❤️🍰 #marchmeetthemaker#winblogtacular @blogtacular @joannehawker
Organised - that's today's prompt for #marchmeetthemaker and I wasn't organised enough to get a pic of my diary and journal planner 🙊 Now I'm a pretty organised gal, but juggling making, photography, editing, Etsy listing and social media means I actually have a secret collection of beautiful new items ready to launch, but haven't got them up in the shop just yet! 💕 Handmade keepsake bouquet, anyone? Coming soon!! Model @hattiewilsonn

Recommend a maker - it's got to be glitter gal @vintageisavirtue 🎊 She sells beautiful vintage garb AND makes mermaid-worthy glitter lashes and face gems. Super-creative and hustling hard, she's an all-round babe and one of the loveliest ladies I know. Go check her out! 🐚🐬💕 #marchmeetthemaker
A cheeky 'studio' shelfie for today's #marchmeetthemaker - I have a little stack of books I keep close to my desk for reference while I'm making. 👆🏼Tap for authors! And podcasts-wise, my current faves are Hashtag Authentic - @me_and_orla Ctrl, Alt, Delete - @emmagannonuk Explore Your Enthusiasm - @taraswiger and Pardon my French - @garancedore 💕 What's in your ears at the mo?
It's about to get real, you guys. 💕 To me, being a maker means staying true to your creative nature - making beautiful things and making mistakes, keeping your passions and principles ahead of you, keeping going when it's difficult, and always being generous with your time, skills and praise for other creatives. There's space for all of us, and only you can make what you make! #marchmeetthemaker
Shout out to the wondrous @samchan91 for modelling this rose comb with vintage lace. 💃
These pretty little things are made to be worn and loved. If I can achieve that, I've nailed it! 💃 Today's yay moment has been spotting this luxe purple garter in the new issue of @vowmag 🎊 It feels good to get my creations out of the studio and into the wild! 🌈 #marchmeetthemaker All six garter shades are in the shop for the taking!
