This year I am a little short on cash and I know that most of my family would understand not even getting a gift for Christmas because I am a uni student after all! However, I am finally putting my skills to good use and giving people hand made gifts, from embroidery hoops, kitted scarves and small illustrations based on their personal loves. These photos don’t really do them justice, I would love to do some little commissioned pieces for people for a very small price, if anyone is interested as I have really enjoyed creating artwork that people can enjoy. if anyone would actually like a little commissioned water colour, I would love to hear from you so feel free to email me @:Jayde.Trollope@gmail.com you can check out my work a little better on my instagram @jayde_ebony_.
Enough advertising my own work, I want to talk about the perks of giving and receiving a small handmade gift. Its personal, the amount of heart and hard work that goes into even a small sketch is more than it takes to just go and find some gift set from a store. It is also more personal to that person, its something that they love and enjoy drawn or painted that they can keep forever. I really like the idea of shopping small this year, small businesses I mean. Its more original. Its more unique. So even if its not with me, support small businesses this year. support those who work hard at there crafts and make someone’s year.
