Two more days until Autumn and the gloves are stacking up 🍃🍂 Are you looking forward to beanie weather this year?
The best thing about starting small is being able to spend time on the little things. As excited as I am to expand and grow this year, nothing beats putting the finishing touches on a tiny package, knowing that somewhere across the world it will make someone smile. What do you love most about selling or shopping handmade? Let me know in the comments 💕
My #mondaymotivation: little plant-dyed stacks on a clean desk 👌
Sunday vibes ☀️
Current mood: never not making gloves 💪 #organiccotton #handsandhustle #happyhumpday
I'm taking the plunge this week and offering free shipping 🌏 worldwide 🌏 over on the shop, for the whole of February! Just in case you were thinking about sending a little something to someone special for Valentines Day (or just because). ❤️
Getting through this manic monday with a giant coffee ☕. The new organic cotton glove range is now available over in the shop, and they could be not be more soft and luxurious to wear. This plant-dyed mustard yellow is my new favourite thing 😍 #mondaymood #makermoments #handsandhustle
Vegan gloves are finally back in stock, in these three gorgeous plant dyed shades 😍. Which one is your favourite? One of my goals for this year is to focus on sourcing a wider range of ethical and sustainable fibres. This organic cotton yarn is handspun in Peru, and is helping to revive the ancestral techniques of hand spinning and hand dyeing of the Paracas Culture. The yarn supports the welfare of the spinners and dyers (and their families) in Lima, providing Fair Trade conditions and a litre of milk per day that they work. 🌱
Can you believe it's February already? We brought our baby monstera home to the office in December and he has already tripled in size, but he still needs a name! Do you name your houseplants, or am I officially crossing into Melbourne hipster territory here? 😂 Let me know in the comments! #monsteralove #hipsterplants #makerspace

Yesterday's sunny afternoon post-office trip through the mall 🌞. Routine is such an essential part of any small business, especially handmade, and is something I want to work on a lot this year - To enjoy more moments like this (ideally with a coffee! ☕)
