Update 1/11/22: This post showcases quite a few craft items that I generally keep in stock or can make with a couple of weeks notice to fulfill bespoke orders so please do get in touch if you are interested in any items or similar.
Mental health and wellbeing is often at the top of my to do list - simply because it's so important to look after this. I think a lot of us, in particular, realised during the pandemic and the experience of lockdown(s) that mental health is like physical health. When you get sick it takes time to recover. Mental health can often be difficult as you and others can't always 'see' the symptoms.
I practice mindfulness with crafting whenever I can - this is my go to escape or place where I can lose myself in a creative hobby or project. Get me talking on the subject of crafting and you will probably understand why.
So, back in January I signed up to have a stall at a wellness festival local to my home. Check out the full event details as there will be lots of providers, practitioners and businesses which offer something wellbeing related within our community.
For me it's an outlet to share what I love and help to raise awareness and ideas to look after mental health and wellbeing. At the same time raise a little bit more for Mind, the charity I am currently supporting with the proceeds from sales of my handmade cards or crafts. Mind, offers many services - I've personally used their support both via their website and locally and wanted to give something back.
Hopefully see you there.
