Today’s @justacard these is “Community” and if you’ve followed me on Instagram for a while you’ll know that I LOVE sharing other makers and designers work. 💕 I’ve tagged some of my faves in this pic, but there are SO MANY! I’m working on some gift guides at the moment to help you shop independent this festive season and I can’t wait to share! Keep an eye out for it this weekend! 😁 Tag your fave indie businesses in the comments (and your own!) so I can check them out! ❤️🙌🏻
Thankful 🖤 Thankful for this Monaco scarf that gave me the inspiration to branch out into different types of crochet designs, thankful for the many wonderful people who have bought my items and continue to love them, thankful for so much. Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving 🧡 I’m thankful for all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! What are you grateful for this year? I'm grateful for my health. It isn't perfect, but I do have an able body and can generally do the things that are most important to me. There are many people with #narcolepsy who can't say the same. Life's too short to focus on the things you can't do. I hope you have a beautiful day and celebration of love and gratitude for all life has to offer! #thankful#grateful#blessed

We designed the flash cards with parents in mind. We printed the flash cards on the highest quality card stock with a high card stock weight that makes it harder to get damaged.

#justacard It’s #incredible what you can #create when you think outside the box and work together.
These pieces are all from commissions we have worked on over the last year. None of them would have been possible without the dedication of our team, the #skill of our #designer#makers and the support of our clients.
Throughout our #journey we have stuck to our #ethos and refused to compromise our commitment to #quality, #authenticity and to creating a #conscious and #sustainable environment for #craft and design, and celebrating the fruits of exceptional designer maker talent.
You reap what you sew and each commission has been an astounding testament to their value, and each of our clients has acquired a truly #unique collection or piece, with their own stories and values at the heart of the designs.
Today is day 3 of the @justacard Indie Week Instagram Challenge, which aims to encourage folks to value, respect and buy from artists, makers, independent shops and small businesses. Today it's all about giving a shout out to fellow makers, bakers, artists and creators , especially the ones that we at The Skylark have the pleasure of working with...there are a few! @shibuitea ♥️ @sheltonscoffee ♥️ @jenniesergeantdesigns ♥️ @thewritesigns ♥️@alscottsigns @daisyglaisy @karenblaircakes ...you are all amazing!!! ♥️ #justacard#supportsmallbusiness#shoplocal#makers#creators#bakers#artists#indieweek
Sarah Lynn, owner of @baileyroadvt ✨ getting ready for Flannel Friday in Montpelier, VT!
A reminder to #shopsmall & #shoplocal this holiday season. I love Montpelier for many reasons, one of which is that they celebrate Flannel Friday instead of Black Friday ♥️ When you support a small business, you’re helping REAL people who’ve put their heart and soul into doing what they love and their families.
Happy almost thanksgiving and full moon! We hope everyone is busy spending time with friends and family. Giving thanks for the many things that so many people live without. This time of year truly makes us realize how important the little things are. We of course encourage our followers to support local business, instead of going to the mall check out a local farmers markets or craft fair. Our studio and many others are open to anyone eager to learn more.
We’ve got a Black Friday Sale currently on our website for every 9 oz Crystal Candle purchased get a 2nd one 1/2 off! **Our schedule for this weekend includes: Dickens Holiday market on Friday in Fayetteville from 1-9. Good Hops community market in Carolina Beach on Saturday from 1-5. Sunday we might be resting or in our studio, watch our story to keep posted🌙
Today’s @justacard prompt is about COMMUNITY. Here are some of the artists, designers, makers, independent shops and small businesses who I admire and love. Check them out! An lanntair is our local art centre and they do a lot to support artists and makers.
I have so many more to share as I do my Christmas shopping so that will be ongoing in my stories ❤️
