Makers gonna make... its very powerful to show your customers a bit of your behind the scenes work in making your finished product or offering your polished service.... That connection with your customers is important, it can be why they remember you in particular and come back to check out your insta feed....

I design, patter-cut & make samples myself, in my studio in London. Which means very little waste & no carbon footprint #SUSTAINABLEFASHION This burgundy fabric l bought in London, in Bethnal Green. Czesław & l travelled on underground - there & back. Fabric for the top l’m wearing came from @misanretail - Czesław & l walked there & back. No need to go to a gym... Shop from independent designers, Foxes! We care. We work hard. We make COOL THINGS!

Birthing a drum

Lots of people look at me strangely when I say I BIRTH drums.

Haha! Well the first image that comes to mind....it's not like that!! Although in meditations I have seen that happening!

So why use the term 'birth' I mean you can only 'birth' a baby right?

And what happens when you birth a baby?

We start with the seed and egg that comes together to grow the start of something.

We watch it as it grows, pieces coming together, it takes a form over some time and we begin to see what it will finally look like.

And then as it is coming to completion there is a labour.  A pushing, too'ing - fro'ing, sometimes there are complications, sometimes false starts, sometimes support is needed and then... It has arrived. A new being, glorious in its birth. Those who laboured are worn out but in love.

THIS is the way a drum is born.

The seeding of an idea merging with the materials.

The pieces coming together, its form taking shape.

The labour -  the effort, the pushing, the too'ing and fro'ing and the cries for help!

and then, new drum comes earthside.

A baby. A creation. YOUR creation.

And I ...I am drum midwife, drum doula...supporting you pre and post nataly. Here by your side.

That is why it is a drum birthing.

HUFF • So, so happy to be able to share this one with you finally. Huff was drawn a few months back and has  now been gifted to one very lucky couple. I love that so many of my portraits have been given as gifts. I only wish I could be there to see them opened up.

Hey there! Thought I would reintroduce myself as I’ve had some new followers over the last while 🙌 I’m Taylor, the maker behind Coastaleo. I think I just had my two year anniversary of officially hanging my first piece of Coastaleo on a wall (woot woot!). I am a Physiotherapist by day, but a woodworker/artist by night, weekends, and naps 🙏 Something you may not know about me...I pucker my lips when I’m deep in thought or painting 😆 I can’t say thank you enough to all of you for following me along this crazy journey. Everyday I learn something new and try to grow from it. With the holiday season fast approaching, I will be announcing all the markets I will be attending as a vendor and really really hope you can come by and meet me, and to check out my work. I do it all for you guys! Until then, I am going to pretend that I am basking in the glorious sun like in the photo taken by the always amazing and talented @mareerattrayphotography ❤️🏔☀️ Cheers y’all! ↟

My mom and I chuckled with reminiscent undertones as we wrapped this happy Buddha up in newspaper so I could take it home. She smiled and sternly said “You better not break him, he’s good luck for a long marriage!”
•
You see this Buddha was more than just a ceramic statue, more than a display item you pick up at the closest Target, no it held so much more than just something pretty to put on the shelf.
This happy little fella was the very first thing my parents bought together.
•
He sat on a shelf in plain sight while all three of us sisters grew up, my littlest sister used to try to put dimes in the slight where his mouth is. He watched us fight over piddly things, have birthdays, get ready for school dances, and reluctantly do chores when asked.
•
This happy Buddha is on a safe shelf overlooking our homeschool table, ready to watch over us all, he’s just in time for some sweet teenager arguments, but also some amazing moments of discoveries in learning, and lots of dog cuddles.
I’m honored to be able to display this sweet, sweet, happy Buddha face on a shelf.
•
He’s a part of the family, I can’t say much more than that. 💕

Two weeks from today, we’ll be cooking over open fire with @tastygoodness and we are so excited!!! We can’t guarantee quite this fantastic plating, but given some amazing seafood on deck courtesy of @gothamseafood and the first Venison Briyani we’ve ever had over #openfire, we are super stoked to #fallforbonfire with this talented chef who has been part of every bonfire since the first fire was lit in 2016. #meetthemaker #bonfirecookoutcommunity #newyorkstateofmind #papertotable

Another day, another stunning location - this time we’re back at one of our all-time favourite places nestled under the cloisters @universitywa for @perthupmarket 😀
.
Fun fact : Mrs.Dingo spent 4 years studying at UWA waaaaaaay back in the mists of time. While here on her student visa she happened upon Mr. Dingo in a near-by Irish bar, but that’s a whole other story 😂 Shortly after that chance encounter Mr. Dingo began working at Vans as a Sous chef & spent his spare time helping future-Mrs.-Dingo on all manner of crazy field expeditions in the name of science🤪. Happy days and fun memories indeed -
Suffice to say that UWA has a special place in our hearts - how funny the twists and turns life takes & now here we are, 17 or so years later, back on the old stomping ground slingin hot sauce 🙌✊🌶💥

What do you do with a dead baby rose bush🥀😔? You dig it up, thank it for trying, wash it off, and make it into something beautiful so it lives on...with glitter of course.😁💚 Work in progress!

Tada! Fall is here and so is my fall spinning project. Merino blend with silk, some tencel and some sparkle. It’s almost 25 ounces of super soft fluff.

What are you spinning?.

Swipe to see close-up pics. The last photo is not related at all 🤣.

In yesterday's post I mentioned sharing the story of how I created the Bolster Stitch. But before I get into that, I wanted to let you know I'm offering the Lines, Stripes & Coffee, Oh My coffee cozy pattern for free till tomorrow night. As a little introduction on how to crochet the Bolster Stitch. Link in bio for pattern. 
So now the story 📖

About 5 years back I started crocheting baskets & became obsessed w/making them. One evening my family & I sat down to watch a movie & I decided to make a basket while enjoying movie night.  But w/this basket I wanted to try the criss cross stitch, which I hadn't crocheted before.

When I finally looked down at my work I realized what I was doing did not look like the criss cross stitch, but whatever I was crocheting, it felt so natural & it looked pretty cool.  I finished the basket & I tried looking up the stitch. But how do you find a stitch when you don't know the name of it? 🤔
It was difficult. 
After coming up empty handed, I contacted the Craft Yarn Council & Crochet Guild of America about it. They could not help w/what the stitch was but put me in contact with Susan Lowman. I messaged her. She said she had not seen the stitch before & wanted to check with Edie Eckman, who basically had the same response. Edie said she wanted to check w/one more designer, Dora Ohrenstein. Same reply. 
So with their advice, I gave the stitch a name, started designing patterns w/it & share it w/the world. 
Bolster Stitch it what I decided to name it, becuase it reminded me of a bolster pillow from my massage therapy days. It has a cylindrical look, it is cushiony & supports the basic sc, hdc or dc. 
What a great mistake!

All my designs include the Bolster Stitch & I'm still figuring out different ways it can be worked.

P.S. I did learn how to crochet the criss cross stitch eventually 😁

Please tag me when you make anything from my patterns. I would love to see them & share your work!

BUDDY • When I first started drawing this one I was a little worried about how some may feel about it. This drawing is of him after he had passed away. It’s a unique memorial piece and one I feel very honoured to have draw.

Ahhh Fall.. 🍂🍁 I can’t stop with the monochrome pieces.. I think it’s sort of becoming my “thing”! Not that it hasn’t been done before, but I enjoy stitching these up the most. Next on my list is a dark blue/black, olive green, and a robin’s egg blue 😊👌🏼 Hope you’re all having a great Saturday! @dmc_embroidery @dmc_crafts

The other day, I was at @augiescoffee and couldn’t decide what flower to draw ☕️. Of course I decided to ask the person sitting closest to me 🗣. That person just so happened be @jaaycreates, another local artist. They requested I draw a sunflower, so I did! 🌻 It made me remember how magical coffee shops can be bc you never really know who will be sitting next to you 😌
 I’m so glad to have met them! Ya’ll need to check out their art work or even attend one of their art nights here in the Inland Empire 🌎
Have a nice day, my friends 🌈

Hello my friends! Just popping by to greet you again since apparently it’s been 8 months since I showed my face on here 😧 This year has brought about many changes ~ almost all of them have been wonderful for which I am endlessly grateful. I’ve been making my Munbeibis for the past year at the @handsonclaycollective studio in Victoria, where I am living with my dear, clever, and funny boyfriend John ♥️ My ceramic production this year has been mainly for the Munbeibi Club, which I think I will keep going for about another year! It’s a lot to keep up with, and since I also work full-time as a project manager, I have been feeling a bit tired this summer. I have been trying very hard to keep my weekends as work-free as possible, and I either walk or bike most places so I get plenty of fresh air ☁️ I always wonder how other small-side-business owners juggle so many responsibilities with their personal care, I know it’s something we all struggle with! I could never give up the Munbeibis though, so it’s always worth it, and your support makes it all possible!! ♥️

Today is the One Year Anniversary of my Etsy shop, and I thought it was about time I finally do a meet the maker post!
Hi, I’m Micaelah - the 21 year old yarn bender behind @tee.ms.knits. 
Let me share a little bit about myself:
1) I’m an auntie to two beautiful little gingers - Owen and Emma.
✨
2) My shop name actually came from my nephew, Owen; when he was learning to talk, he couldn’t pronounce “Auntie,” so he just called me “T”. Auntie M = T. M.
✨
3) I am a HUGE sports fan. Hockey and baseball are my absolute favorites, but I also watch football sometimes.
✨
4) I started learning to knit when I was about 7 or 8, and I learned to crochet when I was 9. After a few years of trial and error and giving up out of frustration, I’m finally hooked (Get it? 😉)
✨
5) I’m so excited for fall! I can’t wait to go pumpkin picking and decorate my porch with mums.
✨
Tell me a little about yourself in the comments! What’s your favorite season? When did you learn to yarn-bend? Let’s grow our little crafty community🥰

I thought I'd introduce myself to my new followers and say thank you to old (friends) for following 🤗 ... I've been a stained glass artisan for nearly 20 years. I learned my craft from going to night school - I'd really wanted to learn how to speak French but at that time it wasn't on the curriculum! My neighbour talked me into going along with her to the stained glass class - I absolutely loved it and picked it up very quickly. I had my garage turned into a studio and found myself making windows for the local Chapel of Rest and lots of transom windows where I lived at that time. I've sold my wares in shops and many craft fairs, including a monthly event called 'Prom Art' at Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria. Now I sell on Instagram, and at present I'm concentrating on making a whole patch of pumpkins 🎃 - then when I've made lots I'll have a flash sale (giving plenty of notice) for anyone who'd like to purchase.
Thanks for reading... Jane 🧡

Self-care talk today... I know a lot of you are juggling busy lives AND are busy being your own boss and running businesses you are passionate about. The last few months I feel like I’ve been running on empty, trying to keep my head above water and just get everything done. Unfortunately my to-do list seems to be never ending...leaving me to put myself and my needs last. Needless to say, this has left me feeling really burned out and sick a lot of the time. For the past few weeks I’ve really been trying not to make excuses and prioritize my own health alongside the needs of my family and business - and HOLY MOLY am I ever feeling the effects! For me this means making time to get to the gym or do some other type of exercise five days a week, eating well, drinking lots of water, and getting lots of sleep. I’m also working to re-configure some aspects of my business to give myself a little more breathing room and not to be so busy all the time. One of the biggest reasons I started working for myself was so that I could prioritize my health and self-care, all while having a flexible schedule. I really feel like I lost sight of that, but I’m glad to have regained my footing somewhat and I really hope I can keep this momentum going. All of this to say - I hope you can carve out some time in your day today to take care of yourself - you are worth it! ❤️ As for me - I’m going to get my first EVER massage today! (I know, I know I’m almost 42 years old and have never had a massage...) Take good care everyone! #novamercury

We love to feature other makers on our feed, and today we're going to meet @willow_with_roots!

Willow with roots is a partnership between mother Jenny (@jennycrisp_basketmaker) and daughter Issy (@issywilkes - pictured). Jenny has been growing willow and making baskets for 30 years, while Issy has a background in designing for theatre, festivals and events. Combining the two means they use basket making techniques on a wide range of projects, from the traditional to more unusual projects just as giant lampshades (like the one pictured) and garden pods. I love how they utilise different colours of wood in their designs.

Check out their feed to see more of their work, and their Etsy shop (WillowWithRootsUK) to see their beautiful willow accessories.

Hello // it’s been a while since I posted a photo of me, and I’ve had some lovely new followers, so wanted to say hello. And it gave me the perfect excuse to share one of the amazing photos from my brand shoot with @jojocooperphotography JoJo was a dream to work with and is wonderful at getting so many natural shots, making you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. And she was great to teach calligraphy to! Perfect skill swaps 😍

Today is the second week of my new working pattern. No teaching on a Thursday. Very weird but it’s going help my making time and hopefully become more manageable to develop my ceramic Botanist range further. I have orders to glaze and fire and to make. The teenagers have left for school so me an clay all day. 
I am hoping to be able to catch some wild blooms before the autumn sets in.
