Small Business Appreciation – Clara’s Folding Book Art

Yippee ! It’s Clara & Paul’s wedding day today and as you are reading this I am already photographing the bridal prep! I have got to know Clara and Paul really well in the lead up to their wedding and I am just so excited for this day. Keep you eyes peeled for a few sneak peeks of their wedding day later tonight!

This is the third instalment in small business appreciation, I really like doing this because it shows talent of people who may not be seen by a large audience, and it’s a pat on the back for those who work so hard running their own business.

Small Business Appreciation – Loving Dot

This is my second post of this type and it was so hard to choose who my next one would be! But from looking through my Instagram Feed (I follow loads of incredibly talented people there), there was one lady that stood out. I found Bethany from Loving Dot through another person on Instagram and I’m so glad I did! The most inspiring thing about her is that she is only 17, working her way through college and her own business, and now she has an offer to go to university! I admire her courage, business sense, motivation and her beautiful design work.

Bethany’s website Loving Dot has many beautiful item including design work, nail transfers, pocket mirrors, badges, prints and much more!

I want to start showing my appreciation for the other small businesses that I use and that inspire me. I am starting off with someone who I see quite a lot of on Facebook, and I LOVE seeing her new makes, I also bought a fairy from her at Christmas for the tree which was beautiful!

Getty Gallery

While I was in Stratford I came across a Getty gallery which was focused on motor vehicles throughout time. The thing I liked about the exhibition was that people who are not art minded could be interested in it because it was about history and showed a lot of interesting facts. The thing that captured me about the exhibition was that the space was so beautiful and unique, I would love to have my work hung there as I think it just looks so unique and different.
