Introducing Monday’s Makers

On my previous blog, Design by Carolyn, I had a weekly blog series called Monday’s Makers, where each Monday I would share a selection of small businesses on my blog and on my instagram stories. I’m excited to reintroduce this series here to The Blessed Solace, and to share some wonderful small businesses here on the blog.

This week I’m sharing three wonderful small businesses with you; And Hope Designs, New Creations UK, and Home Bird Makes.

And Hope Designs
And Hope Designs is based in Belfast and run by Anna. I first met Anna when she photographed my sisters wedding, and have had the joy of seeing her creativity blossom in her small business. Anna creates beautiful watercolour pieces such as cards, postcards and notebooks. Anna creates very beautiful and elegant designs, perfect for sending to someone as a little hug in the post box.

New Creations UK
New Creations UK is run by Rebecca who is based in England. Rebecca creates beautiful painted pieces using acrylic paints, as well as digital illustrations. Rebecca makes a range of notebooks, gifts and cards. Rebecca’s pieces are of a beautiful quality, and she pours heartfelt kindness into very order.

Home Bird Makes
Home Bird Makes is based in England and is run by Ali. I first discovered Ali’s business on instagram and have since become a loyal customer. Ali creates lovely fabric pieces including a range of fabric baskets, hanging garlands, and purses. Ali’s pieces make beautiful gifts, and also come beautifully wrapped and packaged.

I hope you’ve enjoyed finding out about these lovely small businesses and enjoy having a look through their online shops. What are some of your favourite small businesses? How can you support small businesses in your local area?
