Motivational Pencils In Store Now

I love a bit of bossy motivation. Whether it’s a print, a piece of wall art or even stationery – I need a reminder sometimes to keep going and stay focused on my dreams.

One of my goals this year was to extend my stationery range for the shop and having started with notebooks, I thought some writing tools might be useful too. The new Motivational Pencil Sets are great for girl bosses and will remind you that You Got This, as long as you Get To Work and Hustle Hard!


Each set is a pack of 3 lead pencils, with the slogan embossed in gold. I picked my brand colours, but let me tell you it was a toughie as there were so many options. I really love them though!


What do you think? I’m really pushing hard to keep the new products coming this year. I’m so excited to reveal some new print ranges coming soon and also news of my first ever collaborative product!




Rose Gold Enamel Bicycle Pins

I’ve been teasing all of you on social media, but now I’m super excited to announce that the Rose Gold Enamel Bicycle Pins are in store now!! The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that the pins are designed from my wonderful logo which was illustrated by my pal Jojo Rickart. They have turned out SO CUTE!


Each pin is 22mm and made from soft enamel with a rose gold finish. I’m so pleased with them! Outsourcing manufacturing for a product is always a little scary, so I’m happy they’re as I imagined them in my head.

Grab yours for £7 with free postage and packaging in the UK. Soon I’ll be updating the shop so that all products delivered within the UK have free delivery because why not?!


Did you miss the Glitter Pin launch last week? I took them on an outing for some TV filming with Crafty Beggars last week and they went down a storm. More on this soon I promise!

This month I’m hopefully going to be working on some Scrabble inspired necklaces and some exclusive ranges for a wholesaler. Sign up to the newsletter to be the first to know about new product launches!


Thanks for all your support lately – it hasn’t gone unnoticed!



Mini Motivational Wall Art

Ooh February has been a good month for product launches! The relaunched Glitter Heart Pins came earlier this week and now I’m here to share with you a collection of mini motivational wall art.

These were definitely inspired by my own situation! As you may know, I work full-time alongside Claireabellemakes and sometimes it gets pretty tough to juggle everything. Hanging one of these Scrabble inspired art pieces is definitely what I need right now.You-Got-This-Scrabble-Inspired-Wall-Art

These are ‘mini’ in that the frames measure just 6″ x 4″ so they are perfect for small spaces, to hang above desks or make part of a gallery wall.Goal-Digger-Scrabble-Inspired-Wall-Art

I love the mixed media element as the backgrounds are fabric and the letter tiles are exposed without any glass, giving them a bit more dimension than my prints or a standard wall art piece. I adore the geometric fabrics I found too!Hustle-Hard-Scrabble-Inspired-Wall-Art

Surely everyone needs a bit of inspiration like this every now and again? Get-To-Work-Scrabble-Inspired-Wall-Art

AND…I was recently interviewed by the lovely Leanne on her blog; This Little Space of Mine. You can find out more about my business journey and inspiration and also grab a coupon code for my shop! Find the interview here (20% off ends 14 March 2016).

Glitter Heart Pins In Store Now!

Today I’m sharing a product relaunch for the shop! For around 3 years now, I’ve stocked glitter heart pins in the Claireabellemakes Etsy store, but I wanted to revisit them to update the design a little and to make them more lightweight.  It feels like I’ve been working on them a while now, but I wanted to make them just perfect!Glitter-Heart-Pin-Colour-SelectionThere are now 8 colours available and each pin is made from a 3mm wooden laser cut heart and covered in non shedding glitter fabric. NO MESS HERE YAY!Glitter-Heart-Pin-Collection

I really enjoy revisiting products for development, especially as I have amended the shape of the heart and updated the packaging for these glittery pins too! Glitter Heart Pin Packaging ClaireabellemakesThey are now lightweight enough to be worn with other pins in your collection so you can up your #pingame and show off your flair! Glitter Heart Pin Card Back Glitter-Heart-Pins-Selection-Claireabellemakes

I might be going pin mad as I’m also working on another design which will be launched super soon……such a tease aren’t I?



Updated Keyring Designs

In December I took some time to update a few designs in the shop and tested them out at markets. They keyring designs have been made more robust and were the most popular stocking filler as a result! Silver-Bicycle-Keyring-Claireabellemakes

Scrabble Inspired Keyring

I have a notebook which is filling up with design ideas for the shop for 2016, I really hope I get time to make them all!

I’ve also been working on some positive word necklaces similar to the brooch pins – what 3 or 4 letter words would you choose?


I am also thinking about making the print designs into cards, do you think that is a good idea? I know a few people I’d like to send a Makers Gonna Make card to!


Thanks for letting me share today. I really want to keep the shop fresh and exciting this year and I love getting your input.
