March meet the maker – Day 14


Day14 #marchmeetthemaker is Creative Friends.
What a talented lot my friends are. They wow me all the time with their energy & achievements.  I’m so lucky to know artists, musicians, editors, directors, designers & makers… but today I’ve chosen an innovator; a creative businesswoman who is enabling makers to shine and flourish too. My dear friend Wendy runs www.thefoodmarket.com an online marketplace for natural food sold by independent makers. Like Etsy for nosh! Go give them a look it’s wall-to-wall food porn, plus recipes & special offers. Wendy is a power house (or crazy!) she started her business around the same time she had her first baby, he’s now walking and her business is up on its feet too. She’s funny, energetic, genuine and one of the nicest people I know. She’s doing a big crowd funder at the moment so you could even invest in her business (find link on homepage of www.thefoodmarket.com ) Pics are of a product, a recipe, her logo and of her as one of my bridesmaids playing with flowers (she’s going to kill me for that one haha)

Meet the Maker day 13

Day 13 #marchmeetthemaker is photography OK confession up front – product photography is a weak spot for me! Taking photos of little things that fit in a little folding soft box I have is fine. But larger things like these bags, or prints i find tricky. Especially framed prints… the reflections!

Meet the Maker day 11

Day 11 #marchmeetthemaker is post. I like sending out orders – an excuse for tissue paper, stickers, perhaps a little pretty twine if the package is big enough! I often draw the growling bunny on the parcel paper or colourful padded bag to keep an eye on things!
