Beautiful Autumn Finds

In my spare time, I do a lot of crafting. As we head into Autumn (my favourite season), I’ve been thinking a lot about beautiful seasonal products to add to my Etsy and Conscious Crafties sites and channeling the beautiful seasonal colours and cosy feels. 

Now, I may be a little biased, but tis the season for #datewithabook! My novel-tea gift sets are beautiful and special; whether you’re looking for a unique and beautiful gift for someone special or a little something to give you some self care time, I have the solution!

#datewithabook was the brainchild of time spent dealing with chronic physical and mental illness. Having been unwell and isolated at times, I learnt that self care was a huge part of my recovery. I wanted to create something that could be a small piece of special self care or a really thoughtful and unique gift for someone who was going through a challenging time. #datewithabook has evolved outside the realms of chronic illness into a more mainstream personal gift idea. But the original sentiments are still there, with me often creating book dates when I am poorly.

I’ve been looking around and have found some totally beautiful Autumnal makes that I would love to share with you all.

I have recently started selling on the wonderful Conscious Crafties website which is full of crafted items, made by incredible people with chronic illness and disabilities or those who are carers.

Here are some of the beautiful Autumn makes you can find on the site: 

Of course there are book dates!

The next of my craftie features is from the incredibly talented Stephanie; a crafter who has made me feel extra welcome in the Conscious Crafties community. Crispy crunchy autumn leaves come to mind when I look at this beautiful handcovered notebook.
