#marchmeetthemaker⁣ ⁣ 🌸 12th March - Hands At Work 🌸⁣ ⁣ My hands are a mess 🙈🙈🙈 I’m a nail biter and in the last year or so it’s begun to get out of control. They are always covered in sanding dust, paint and tiny cuts 😊 all part of my craft. I like to keep my hands busy, I’m not very good at sitting down and not doing something. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes#lovenature⁣

#marchmeetthemaker ⁣ ⁣ 🌸 11th March - Reducing Waste 🌸⁣ ⁣ Thankfully my craft doesn’t create much waste at all. I keep fabric/pretty paper/ribbon scraps in a jar for random projects. I reuse incoming packaging which keeps the cost of postage I charge my customers low. And I recycle everything else. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes#recycle#reuse#lovenature

#marchmeetthemaker⁣ ⁣ 🌸 10th March - Me 🌸⁣ ⁣ This is probably the worst post for me and also why it’s so late. I don’t like me. This isn’t me. I’m not comfortable in my own skin anymore. I’ve put on A LOT of weight since having severe PND/anxiety and I can’t stand pictures of me or clocking myself in a mirror. ⁣ ⁣ But here is me, Lucy, at my bench in my workshop. I love nature and making things, I grew up in the countryside and spent a lot of time with my grandparents. My late grandad was my biggest influence growing up and still is now. 💗⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#nurseryinspiration#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes⁣

🌸 9th March - Story Behind The Name 🌸⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It all began
#marchmeetthemaker⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🌸 9th March - Story Behind The Name 🌸⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It all began when I had twins in November 2016 at 29 weeks. Mentally it destroyed me. I have suffered with severe post-natal depression and anxiety ever since. ⁣ ⁣ I found that craft helped me to relax and took me away from the stress and worry of my life. I started as just a few gifts and it’s grown from there. ⁣ ⁣ The business name was the easy part. It was the two things that got me through everyday when I just wanted to crawl off somewhere and hide. Dear is our surname. My little twin Dears. The reason I survive everyday. Bear is our dog. My first baby. Her name is actually Lola but I call her Bear as she’s our teddy bear dog. When my anxiety was crippling me I would go and find her (usually asleep on our bed) and cuddle her tight and I’d gradually calm down. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#nurseryinspiration#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes⁣⁣

#marchmeetthemaker⁣ ⁣ 🌸 7th March - Less Glam Side 🌸⁣ ⁣ I’m already behind 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ but hey ho, mum to twins, house to keep and work to do I don’t always have time.⁣ ⁣ I don’t think there’s any glam side to what I do. From start to finish it’s a messy craft. But the prep is what gives a perfect finish to the end product so I’m ok with being covered in sanding dust. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#nurseryinspiration#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes⁣

#marchmeetthemaker⁣ ⁣ 🌸 6th March - Full/Part Time 🌸⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I’ll just start with 😂😂😂😂 how about anytime??? ⁣ ⁣ Sadly a lot less time than I’d like because I have a choice of craft or sleep. Since having the twins I’ve discovered I’ve adapted quite well to about 4/5 hours sleep a night. Often it’s less. So once the boys are in bed, dinners done and my other household chores are done I go out to my workshop and get to work. I answer messages any time of day or night. Social media gets squeezed in whenever I have time spare. Today I’ve got an hour to myself 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 to have a cuppa courtesy of @halfords_uk while the car has its MOT. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#nurseryinspiration#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes#mumlife#chillingwithacuppa#tealover

#marchmeetthemaker⁣ ⁣ 🌸 5th March - Detail/Close Up 🌸⁣ ⁣ The little details are what makes the difference. For me it’s all in the detail. The finish is the best of my ability. I get so frustrated that my work is totally dependent on the quality of the wood cut I receive. I have now, thankfully, finally found suppliers that I can rely on 😁 and I’m testing and developing my craft constantly. ⁣ ⁣ These are two woodland decoupage letters I made last summer. My first ever proper paid order from someone who didn’t already know me and put trust in me. ⁣ ⁣ Letters are hand painted and decoupaged with die cut and hand stamped personalised tags. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#nurseryinspiration#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes#woodlanddecor#woodlandnursery#woodlandnurseryinspo#woodland#fox#rabbit#stag#deer

#marchmeetthemaker⁣ ⁣ 🌸 4th March - Tools & Materials 🌸⁣ ⁣ I have so many tools and materials it’s ridiculous. I’m something of a collector 😂😂 I have fabrics, papers, glitters, stencils, stamps, spray paint, chalk paint, a full die cutting kit, so many tools for sanding & finishing ... the list is just endless. However these are the tools I’m using most at the moment. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#nurseryinspiration#handmade#handmadedecor#handmadeisbest#handmadegifts#gifts#keepsakes#easterbunny#takeover

🐇 Easter Bunny Takeover 🐇⁣ ⁣ I’ve been looking forward to getting out in the workshop for days and getting on with my Easter stock. Running late as always. One day I’ll be organised 🤞🏻 Had a few hours spare this evening so they’ve all been sanded and primed ready for the fun part. I’ve ordered some lovely new fabrics for this set of bunnies. ⁣ ⁣ One little bunny is already finished in #roseandhubble fabric, I love this print!! ⁣ ⁣ #handmade#handmadeisbest#madewithlove#easter#eastergifts#easterbunnies#easterrabbit#spring#springishere#bunnies#workinprogress#cute#presents#keepsakes#decor#easterdecor#springdecor#nurserydecor#bunnynursery#rabbitnursery#dearandbear#mumoftwins

#marchmeetthemaker⁣ ⁣ 🌸 3rd March - Flatlay 🌸⁣ ⁣ Now I LOVE a flatlay however I’m terrible with taking photos. I never have the time to just fiddle about until I get the perfect photo. I wish I did but with two year old twin boys there is no chance. One thing I really need to work on is my photography and that’s another project for this year. ⁣ ⁣ So here is one of my not so terrible flatlays. I love this print so much! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #smallbusiness#meetthemaker#instagramchallenge#mumoftwins#dearandbear#nurseryinspiration#handmade#handmadedecor#dinosaurbedroom#dinosaurinspiration#bedroominspiration#dinosaur#dinosaurnursery#dinosaurnurserytheme#dinosaurnurseryinspiration#dinosaurnurserydecor#handmadeisbest
