These are things I love, saved mainly for when I need to find them. You never know, you might love them too!
- Sticker Mule, Mixam and Awesome Merchandise are where I get all my custom printing done. Excellent companies with superb customer services and quality end results.
- Pip’s Parcels is the only place I will buy my custom hand-dyed garments from. Beautiful products for children (and adults if you send a message!)
- Workbridge was set up 40 years ago to offer a vocational pathway for people with mental illness, learning disabilities or brain injuries. As well as having a great cafe they produce excellent canvases in their print shop.
- Streetshirts fulfil my love of custom running tops!
- Danny Wells Runs – Danny’s fantastic YouTube channel has great clips from some of the crazy events he has been a part of.
- Round the kitchen table – my friend Ali blogs about unschooling, play, nature and Christian faith.
- Jason Ramasami – great designer/illustrator and inspiration.
- I… love…. maps… confession complete! I get my OS maps and our tour guides from Dash4it, cheap as chips, though you will get a lot of emails from them afterwards…
