Show up and shine

Posted on: September 25th, 2019 by samdrawsthings No Comments

What would you do today if you weren’t feeling self conscious…? How would things be different if you weren’t worried about how you looked or came across? What would it be like if you just KNEW that your story was important and people needed to hear it? Can you imagine how it would feel if you just trusted that your friends (real or virtual) genuinely wanted to hear from you, see your face, or share in the beautiful thing you’ve just created…?

The thing is, they do!

What gets in our way is our own fear and worry.

And I’m done with it. I’m so tired of getting in my own way all the time! I want to be here, to show up and ⭐️SHINE⭐️ and I want to help you to do the same.

There are some wonderful people that I am super inspired by at the moment who are just so sparkly. And I know that the fear is still there for them. But they are showing up anyway and oh how I love them for it 😍

If you need some inspiration too, go and check out:

@sugarandsloth to meet Anita, queen of feeling the fear and doing it anyway, creator of cute and sweary things

@through_this_iris and meet Shiráz, traveller of the world, photographer extraordinaire and mental health warrior

@hedgerowyarns and meet Jane, classiest lady on my feed with the most beautiful photos and fabulous small business

And if you’d like a bit of help stepping up and shining, I’ve got a new little Facebook group called Show up and Shine.

It’s got me as your cheerleader and signposter to useful things that help with social media and other places you can show up, and it’s growing into a sweet and supportive little community.  I’d love you to come and join us 🙂

Pintastic: lots of new enamel pin designs

Posted on: June 11th, 2019 by samdrawsthings No Comments

Wow, it has been a busy week at Samdrawsthings HQ, with lots of deliveries going in and out.

The pins arrived for my collaboration with Dye Candy, and they have all been packaged up and posted now.  Hutch gave me a sneak preview of the yarn that she has dyed to go with them, and my jaw hit the floor.  It’s just beautiful.  I know she was feeling a lot of pressure due to it being a mystery yarn, and to the huge number of orders we’ve had, but she has totally knocked it out the park.  The first pics of people sharing their pins have started to pop up; I cannot WAIT to see the reactions to the yarn and fibre as it starts to arrive!

Aaaaaah they’re HERE!! 💊 🧶 This enamel pin collaboration with @dyecandy has been so much fun! They are so sparkly and shiny it’s hard to take a pic 😍 • If you’ve preordered, they will be with you soon 😃 There was a little mix up and they are actually BIGGER than we thought (35mm instead of 30mm) so you’re getting a wee bit more sparkle for the same price❇️ • Aren’t they ace?! The green glitter is making me so happy 😀 • The link to order is in both of our bios 🤗 thank you so much to everyone who has been so supportive of our mission to #dropthestigmanotthestitch and help us to fundraise for Mind so far 😀 Now to get them all packaged up and ready to post!!! • #shinyshiny #pingamestrongaf #enamelpins #madeintheuk

#dropthestigmanotthestitch 🧶 cos mental health stigma needs to go… • I’ve been packaging up lots of these babies today and the first few should be hitting doormats soon! Thank you SO much to everyone who has supported this collab with @dyecandy – we’re fundraising for Mind and opening up conversations about mental health. It’s a cause close to both of our hearts and it’s amazing how we’ve really touched on something that you all care about so much too. Here’s to a world with better mental health, and the space to chart about it and ask for help when we are suffering 🙌 • Link in both of our bios to get your hands on a pin and some yarn/fibre in the most beautiful colour way from @dyecandy • #PinGameStrong #EnamelPins #YarnLover

The pins have the slogan ‘Drop the stigma, not the stitch’ in reference to mental health stigma, and how much fibre crafts such as knitting and crochet can aid people with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.  It’s a cause close to both mine and Hutch’s hearts.  I find my drawing is a huge therapeutic tool in dealing with anxiety, and since taking up knitting last year that’s really helped too.  There’s something about the squishy softness of the yarn running through my fingers that’s really grounding.  It’s also a great mindfulness exercise…

You can still get your hands on these pins in the Samdrawsthings shop here. 

Then the pins that I have designed for MAD Scientist Yarns arrived too!  These are my first ever rainbow finish pins and I am just delighted with how they came out – they are so SHINY.    They feature the scientist from the new logo I designed for them, with some extra yarn and sparkly bits.

Both of these pins are fundraising for mental health charity Mind, which makes me feel so happy.  They are doing a lot of important work supporting people with mental health issues, and their website is a very helpful place for information and advice.

You can order your MAD LAB pin here.

A new logo for Angel Bloom

Posted on: April 12th, 2019 by samdrawsthings No Comments

Talented artist Hannah Corley came to me for help with her logo and branding as she starts her own business.  Like all my clients, I asked her to start with a Pinterest board of things that excite and inspire her.  This is such a great place to start when you’re thinking about your brand.

She sent me the most beautiful board packed with sunflowers, bees, warm browns and yellows and vintage fonts.  Sometimes people don’t really know what they want and I put together lots of different ideas and colour options for them to choose from.  Hannah knew just what she wanted the look and feel of her brand to be, so my job was to simply create some different logo layouts for her to choose from.  I tried the sunflower and the been in all sorts of combinations!

The final logo is classy, elegant and whimsical and I cannot WAIT to see it in use as Hannah starts her business 🙂

If you would like some help with your logo or branding, do drop me an email.  I can send a copy of my full portfolio and we can have a chat about ideas.  I work a lot with small and creative businesses, charities and good causes and would love to help you.
