It's Day 5 of @JoanneHawker 's #MeetTheMakerWeek. Today's theme is : Audience Interaction. Except..... Have you ever had one of those totally blank moments where you can think of Nothing? 😋 Like absolutely nothing. Lying in bed at 00:25 trying to think of a half decent caption kind of nothing? Yep. NOTHING. 🙈 So bear with me : I'm going to try and be clever for half a second; pretend this question was in some way planned and turn my senior moment into a win. What's your default social media post? Do you have one fail-safe kind of post that you know people like? What gets people talking. Like REALLY talking. 2 way conversation kind of stuff? Do you have a kind of post that gets saved? Or better, shared? 🤯 And hashtags. Oh my word, talk to me about hashtags. Have you ever found something that reliably works for you? Or is it really down to black magic & infuriatingly random algorithm malarkey? 🧙‍♂️🧙‍♀️ See? Who says being slightly vacant doesn't have it's advantages 😉 #InstagramChallenge  #Photoaday  #Photoadaychallenge  #Meetthemaker  #meetthemakers  #abmlifeiscreative  #wearethemakers  #makerscollective  #abmcrafty   #makermovement  #instachallenge  #creativeminds  #creativityfound  #makersofinstagram  #makersofig  #heytheremaker #MotherOfDaughters #MotherOfSons #creativebusiness  #creativecommunity  #creativelife   #makerrevolution #votewithyourmoney  #handmadechristmasuk  #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery #MomentsThatMatterToMe #MadeInBritain #HandmadeInBritain

It's Day 4 of @JoanneHawker 's #MeetTheMakerWeek and I'm still just about hanging on in there 😄 Whilst posting daily has been lots of fun, its now starting to be exhausting. 😴 How on earth do some folk manage to do this all the time?!? 🤪 On the plus side, I have met lots of lovely new people. There are now 18,000 posts under the hashtag! So it's well worth a look! There are thousands of makers and do-ers joining in 🥰 So today's theme is: Where else can you be found? Hmmm. Now as many of you guys know, I don't really do the whole leaving-the-house thing, so no pretty Christmas markets for me. 🎄🙈 I can't be found on any of the online Market Places either. As much as I'm tempted by fanciful thoughts of Etsy and Folksy, the thought of maintaining another shop is enough to make me run away screaming. There is however, one other place you'll find me though (this was cheating really). Buried right at the bottom of my (still unfinished) website is a blog. It has nothing to do with jewellery, so it's a bit out of place and probably shouldn't be there at all, but I love to journal and I love to write, so it's going to stay right there. Things I want to write just because. Random thoughts that I've scribbled down & jumbled together before I forgot them again. So not work, but definitely somewhere else you can find me. 💜 Photo credit: The wonderful @neal_laver_photo #InstagramChallenge  #Photoaday  #Photoadaychallenge  #BeBigShopSmall   #MakersGonnaMake  #MakersMovement  #Meetthemaker  #meetthemakers  #abmlifeiscreative  #wearethemakers  #makerscollective  #abmcrafty   #makermovement  #instachallenge  #creativeminds  #wearwhatyoubelieve  #makersofinstagram  #makersofig  #heytheremaker #creativebusiness  #creativecommunity  #creativelife   #makerrevolution #votewithyourmoney  #handmadechristmasuk  #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery #MomentsThatMatterToMe #CampaignShopIndependant

It's Day 3 of @JoanneHawker 's #MeetTheMakerWeek and today's theme is: Behind the Scenes. Excuse me while I recoil in horror/ fall over laughing 🤣 Now let me me explain why that's not going to happen .......... It's now December. Height of silly season and in the nicest possible way, there was not one icicle in hells chance that I was going to let you see "behind the scenes" today 🤪 My poor, poor studio. I gave up trying to find the floor a week ago. Its somewhere under the piles of; A. The important stuff I need this minute; B. The important stuff I need later today; C. The important stuff I need later this week; D. The important stuff that I really do need, but is currently buried underneath A, B & C. My bullet journal with all it's neatly written, over optimistic weekly goals has totally disappeared. I can't find it, so my best guess is that it's in pile D. I swear I can hear it silently mocking me. 🙈 So here's my 'very carefully' curated Behind the Scenes shot. It's not totally devoid of reality. These are in fact 2 cards that went out in a package in yesterday's post. I'm currently holding my breath until Royal Mail tells me it's safely arrived 🥴 Send help. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee 🎄❤ #InstagramChallenge  #Photoaday  #Photoadaychallenge  #Founders  #MakersGonnaMake  #MakersMovement  #Meetthemaker  #meetthemakers  #abmlifeiscreative  #wearethemakers  #makerscollective  #abmcrafty   #makermovement  #instachallenge  #creativeminds  #ThisWeekOnInstagram  #makersofinstagram  #makersofig  #heytheremaker  #creativecommunity #foreverfaffing   #makerrevolution #votewithyourmoney  #handmadechristmasuk  #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery #MomentsThatMatterToMe #womenWhoMake #TheHonestLens

It's Day 2 of @JoanneHawker 's #MeetTheMakerWeek and the theme for today is Collections. So I thought it was the perfect day to do my very first roundup of wintery #MomentsThatMatterToMe . ❄☃️ (Nothing at all to do with the fact that I've been so insanely busy dealing with the silly season that I haven't had a chance to edit a single photo 🙈). There are already so many breathtaking moments on the December MomentsThatMatterToMe hashtag feed and every image is so different. Taken by people all over the world, in places I can only imagine 🌍 We're now at almost 3000 posts which is just unbelievable. 🤗 Thank you all so much to you all for adding and sharing my little hashtags 💜.

Another week another Instagram Challenge 🥳🎉 This time one of my absolute favourites 💜 I've been looking forward to @JoanneHawker 's #MeetTheMakerWeek for ages now. And because I know it happens at the most atrociously busy time of the year, I planned to be really organised. I'd read the prompts and thought I had it sorted 🙈 But somewhere in between juggling 1 website launch; 1 birthday; 3 hospital appointments; 5 Christmas lists and trying to get all my commissions photographed and wrapped, it went spectacularly out of the window. 🤪 Around 12.30 last night, while cursing at my silly camera battery for running out of charge AGAIN mid photoshoot, I realised I had nothing even remotely suitable for today's prompt. So here's a photo I had taken earlier and my About Me: My name's Lucille I live with my husband and 5 small people in a little village in Suffolk, roughly half way between Bury St Edmund's and Cambridge. I've been making fingerprint jewellery using gold and silver for almost 14 years which is kinda scary and makes me feel like a relic. I love everything about it! I love working closely one-on-one with people to create something perfect just for them and I love working with some incredibly talented people. I live with a couple of life-long chronic pain conditions which throws a spanner on the works from time to time. I drink way more coffee than I should. I love to bake bread and pretty cakes; make jams, chutneys and syrups; grow things in the garden, journal and write. I write a lot! I play the violin. Thank you so much for your likes, comments and support.⠀Have a beautiful week!⠀🥰 #InstagramChallenge  #Photoaday  #Photoadaychallenge  #SupportSmallBusineses  #MakersGonnaMake  #MakersMovement  #Meetthemaker  #meetthemakers  #abmlifeiscreative  #wearethemakers  #makerscollective  #abmcrafty   #makermovement  #instachallenge  #creativeminds  #creativepreneur  #creativityfound  #makersofinstagram  #makersofig  #heytheremaker #creativebusiness  #creativecommunity  #creativelife   #makerrevolution #votewithyourmoney  #handmadechristmasuk  #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery #MomentsThatMatterToMe

It's @JustACard Indie Week and I made it to day 4 (well almost 🙈). You see, the prompt for day 4 is Events: Your events & those you enjoy. It's a great prompt! And if you follow the #JustACard and #IndieWeek hashtags, you'll see all manner of beautiful craft fayres, Christmas fayres, markets, craft classes and shows.......... But today I found I had nothing to post. You see one of the side effects of being chronically ill (and for those at the back, chronically ill means you're not getting better any time soon) is that you don't get out A lot.......? A little........? Ever! Yep that's the one 👍 Anyhow. With no lovely craft fayres to post, I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at a certain website I'm (still) working away on. Which is now live!! 🤗 There's no shopping cart & I am ironing out the creases, but its definite progress. 💓 What do you think? 😬 #MakingJewellery #Silversmith #DesignerMaker #MeetTheMaker #PrettyCreativeStyle #TheHappyNow #EverydayMagic WHPSheInspiresMe #SheBelievedSheCould #SheBelievedSheCouldSoSheDid #DontQuitYourDayDream #CambridgeUK #WeMakeCollective #MakersForMakers #WeAreTheMakers #SupportTheMakers #CaptureMyCraft #PrettyCreativeStyle #PrettyCreativeLife #SeekInspireCreate #SlowLiving_Create #TheNativeCreative #HandmadeIsBest #ModernMaker #BestMadeHandmade  #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery

"When you buy from a small business, an actual person does a happy little dance". 💃 Most of you guys will have seen the memes, but did you know that this is (embarrassingly) true? 😁 I've been known to skip and sing around my studio for days after receiving orders, lovely reviews and photo reviews (very, very exciting)! Today, I'm continuing with day 2 of Indie Week - A fantastic 5 day community hashtag project organised by the @JustACard Campaign and @SarahHamiltonPrints that aims to help, support and promote small handmade Indie businesses. Putting pennies back into the pockets of friends, neighbours and that family down the end of the street that you wave to every now & then, as opposed to, you know, Amazon. The JUST A CARD campaign encourages people to buy from small designers, makers and independent shops with the message that any purchase at all, however small, even 'just a card' can be vital to their survival.⠀⠀ It's perfect because it emphasizes the fact that you don't have to spend a fortune to make a huge difference. If everyone bought just one thing from a local independent this year, think what our local towns, highstreets, shopping malls and markets could look like! Let's face it, anything would be better than the whole ghost-town vibe most of them have been giving off the past few years. And of course, it's so important to remember that you can support independents without spending anything at all, simply by following, liking and sharing their posts on social media. So check out the hashtag, find some gorgeous new accounts to follow, share, share, share and help out a small business today 🌼🌸🌺 #JustACard #IndieWeek #WeMakeCollective #MakersForMakers #WeAreTheMakers #SupportTheMakers #CaptureMyCraft #SharingHandmadeJoy #MakersOfIG #PrettyCreativeLife #MeetTheMaker #SlowLiving_Create #HeyThereMaker #TheNativeCreative #ThisWeekOnInstagram #ModernMaker #BestMadeHandmade #ShopIndependant #InstagramChallenge #JustSupportSmall  #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery  #MoodCollectors #AllISeeIsPretty #VerilyMoments #MyQuietBeauty #CornerOfMyWorld

Morning everyone! It’s Indie Week! 🎉 I always love a good Instagram Challenge (mostly because the daily prompts make my life a lot easier 🙈), but this one is very special and is for a wonderful cause. 💓 Indie Week is a fabulous community hashtag project that was started by the @JustACard Campaign and @SarahHamiltonPrints, helping to support and promote small handmade Indie businesses. The kind of businesses that are being squeezed out of existence by giant online stores and people importing “stack it high, sell it low” goods from overseas. The kind of handmade businesses that won’t be around for a lot longer if something doesn’t change. It encourages every kind of Indie Maker to join in for 5 days from the 25th to the 29th of November - Writers, illustrators, artists, jeweller's, ceramicists, knitters, candle and soap makers (who are pretty much the only people I follow). ___________________________ The JustACard campaign came about several years ago now when Artist and Designer  @sarahhamiltonprintssaw heard a quote from owners who had recently closed their gallery:⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "If everyone who'd complimented our beautiful gallery had bought 'just a card' we'd still be open".⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The JUST A CARD campaign encourages people to buy from small designers, makers and independent shops with the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are vital to their survival.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ So if you’re tired of your local high street looking like a ghost town or buying almost everything from faceless corporations, take a look. Share, share, share and spread the word. Check out the hashtag, help a small business and make your Instagram feed a more beautiful place!⠀🌼🌸🌺 #JustACard #IndieWeek #WeMakeCollective #MakersForMakers #WeAreTheMakers #SupportTheMakers #CaptureMyCraft #SharingHandmadeJoy #PrettyCreativeStyle #PrettyCreativeLife #SeekInspireCreate #SlowLiving_Create #BuyFolk #TheNativeCreative #HandmadeIsBest #ModernMaker #BestMadeHandmade #ShopIndependant #ShopSmall #JustSupportSmall  #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery  #MoodCollectors #AllISeeIsPretty #VerilyMoments #MyQuietBeauty #CornerOfMyWorld

So which one do you like the best? With the writing under the logo or without? 🤔 I've changed a few of my social media handles recently. Quite a few of you noticed - which was rather lovely (thank you! 💓) and everything was fine until I realised 90% of my business stationary was now out of date. Anyway..... I've been meaning to update my business cards for a while because it turns out nobody can read the fancy modern calligraphy font. 🙈 So, should I change it for a clearer type-set font, or leave it off altogether? Please help me decide. 🙏💕 #FlatlayFriday #Pocket_Creative #ForeverFaffing #StartWithWhy #InCreativeMoments #PrettyCreativeStyle #DelightOfCreating #TheCreativeShots #CreativityFound #CreativeHappyLife #CreativePeople #CreativeCommunity #CreativeHands #CreativityChasers #FromWhereIStand #ThisWeekOnInstagram #HiddenGems #ExploreToCreate #mindfullymade #BuyLessChooseWell #BuyLessBuyBetter #ResponsibleStyle #ConsciousConsumer #BuyFolk #SlowFashionMovement #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SlowAutumnDays #PersonalisedPrints

So yesterday I decided to do a silly thing........ 🙈 Some time during early summer I decided that it was no longer very fair to keep asking my family to take my IG studio photos. 📸 It's pretty much everyone's least favourite 'job for Mum', so I enlisted the help of a fabulous tripod. Lots of research went into the purchase of this tripod and I was really quite excited when it arrived - excited that is, until I realised I couldn't extend the legs in my tiny box studio, so I couldn't use the thing. 🤦‍♀️ So, I asked my husband if he would help me rearrange the studio. That was back in June ........ So yesterday, feeling a bit grumpy and determined, I decided I could move all the furniture, including my work bench by myself. 🤨 Except I couldn't. After carefully removing every tool in creation from every draw and spending at least an hour untangling the mass of leads underneath, I dragged it to the doorway - where wedged itself. 🙄 And that's why, instead of posting the edited photographs of the 2-print heart pendant I made last week, I'm posting "one I made earlier". So here's a 9ct yellow gold star necklace with tiny miniature hand and footprint impressions, set with an amethyst birthstone. I'll be tackling the bench again today.

Well that’s me set up for the day. ☕🤗 Rings that need resizing and an entire box of the most beautiful choclates I think I’ve ever seen. 😍 Last week I entered one of those Instagram competitions where you have to comment on a post and tag a few favourite people. I never usually do these things (mostly because I never win), but the love @storisse tagged me and I thought “what the hell”. Well total shock -  I only went and won! 😯 And yesterday, these beautiful handmade creations were dropped off by my lovely post lady. 🎁 @nonococoauk are so unique. Vegan, natural, superfoods chocolates. Free from gluten, dairy, nuts, egg, yeast and more. They’re also prepared in a totally nut free environment, so very welcome in a house with a very allergic child. And believe me – I don’t think they’ll be around for much longer because they’re beyond delicious. 😋 They also have an amazing back story, providing work for people with additional needs and autism. 🧡 #VeganChocolate #FreeFromUK #FreeFrom #FreeFromChocolates #CollectivelyCreate #TimeForTea #FlatlaysForever #FlatlaysAndFinds #ByArrangement #ThisWeekOnInstagram #StillsWithStories #AQuietStyle #MomentsThatMatterToMe #DistractionsAndInspirations #OfQuietMoments #SharingHandmadeJoy #ShopHandmade #BuyHandmade #HandmadeJewellery #Instasmithy #SophiaAlexander #YearOfCreativeMemories #JewelleryThatMatters #GoldFingerprintJewellery #TheSlowDownCollective #SlowLiving_Create #GuiltyPleasure #GiftsForMummy #HandmadeGoldJewellery #GiftIdeasForHim

For the fallen…….. 🌺 They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.

I was still sick yesterday, so today was my hump day instead. 😄 I waited in for my lovely post lady to deliver the latest batch of tiny treasures from the casting house, polished the new arrivals and wrapped up packages ready for tomorrows mega drop at the post office. 🎁 Attempting not to stick myself to the envelopes in miles upon miles of sticky tape. 🙈 Fingerprint kits, handprint kits, ring kits and a few very special sparkly things winging their way to their new owners. 💓 I can't show you yet - they're a surprise. But they're very, very pretty 😉 #ImGettingMarried #SoonToBeMrs #FutureMrs #LetsGetMarried #MarryingMyBestFriend #AlternativeBridal #ModernBride #MyEverydayMagic #LiveMoreMagic #BuyBetter #ALittleBeautyEveryday #MadeInBritain #SlowFashion  #ConsciousConsumer #SimpleThingsMadeBeautiful  #ThatsDarling #HiddenGems #OurMakerLife #WeAreTheCreativeEconomy #BestMadeHandmade #CultivateCreativity #CreativeWomen #WomenWhoMake #HandmadeCurator #CreateMakeShare #MadeToCreate #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SophiaAlexander  #GoldFingerprintJewellery  #wemakecollective

Unusual post alert. 🤨 Unusual because it's a repost - Something usually only found in my stories. But oh look, it's me! Todays post is brought to you by an amazing project called @shecan365 365 female entrepreneurs. 365 days. 365 stories. 365 interviews, each using 365 words. So many amazing ladies. I'm honestly floored that they were even remotely interested in talking to me. 🙈 If you're interested, hop on over and give it a read and see all the other interviews they've done this year. Even better, follow along. It's a lovely project and I really hope it continues. 💜 #MyBeautifulStories #StillsWithStories #startwithwhy #theartofslowliving #KindredMemories #SlowAndGlow #livemoremagic #livethelittlethings #TinyTinyMoments #thehappynow #MoodCollectors #flashesofdelight #doitfortheprocess #makersgonnamake #communityovercompetition #postitfortheaesthetic #creativepreneurs #risingtide #dontquityourdaydream #handsandhustle #nothingisordinary #pursuepretty #calledtobecreative #creativityfound #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SophiaAlexander  #GoldFingerprintJewellery  #MadeToCreate #ATouchOfKind #MyAlmanacMoment

A little bit of something beautiful to brighten up a wintery day. 🍁🍂 Did you write your own wedding vows?  Did you go for something expressive and modern?  Or keep it simple and traditional? I got married in a teeny tiny chapel (it was really a church, but never seemed grand enough to hold that title) and at the time, we kept everything super traditional, but I always said that if I could do it all over again, I'd have a go at writing something more unique. 📝 Maybe if we renew our vows. 🙈 Anyway ........... These teeny tiny vows are laser engraved into the precious metal in perfect detail. Our laser engraved rings are engraved using a computer and a machine, rather than being engraved by a person. ⠀Although you still do need to have a trained and very talented person to operate the machine (I don’t do that part by the way 😏). ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ The lines are crisp, defined, blackened and highly detailed. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ You can have ‘almost’ anything engraved. Symbols, images, letters and numbers in pretty much any font.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Once the ring is engraved, we polish it and can then set it with diamonds or coloured gemstones if you’d like them.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Have a wonderful weekend everyone 🍂🍁💛 #BuyBetterBuyLess #RingLover #RingRing #ALittleBeautyEveryday #FutureHeirloom #MadeInBritain #SlowFashion  #ConsciousConsumer #SimpleThingsMadeBeautiful  #ThatsDarling #HiddenGems  #MyEverydayMagic #FlashesOfDelight #OurMakerLife #celebratinghandmade #WeAreTheCreativeEconomy #BestMadeHandmade #CultivateCreativity #WhereWomenCreate #CreativeWomen #WomenWhoMake #WeddingVows #HelloSmallShop #HandmadeCurator #CreateMakeShare #MadeToCreate #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SophiaAlexander  #GoldFingerprintJewellery  #wemakecollective

Slightly struggling for caption inspiration tonight. It’s nearly the end of the school holidays here and there’s something about attempting to work at the exact same time as looking after 5 little people that has that effect on my brain. 🤪😅 Anyway…………………. I have lots of pretty things going out at the end of this week and this is just one of them. Hallmarked.  Polished.  Gift wrapped.  Done. 🎁✅ I’m slightly horrified at the state of my fingers, but that’s all part and parcel of making said pretty things. 🙈 How has this week been for you? #FutureHeirloom #FutureHeirlooms #FamilyHeirloom #MadeWithLove #MadeInBritain #HandmadeInBritain #BritishDesign #SlowFashion #SayNoToFastFashion #ConsciousConsumer #SimpleThingsMadeBeautiful #CreativeHappyLife #MyBeautifulMess #CreativityFound #ThatsDarling #DarlingMovement #MyEverydayMagic #MadeWithMagic #LiveMoreMagic   #ALittleBeautyEveryday #MummyStyle #ChooseLovely #FlashesOfDelight #SeekInspireCreate #HeiterAutumn #HiddenGems  #MomentsThatMatterToMe #ThisMamaLife #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery

It was my birthday last week, which was lovely but a little low key. 🎂🎈 One, because it was an ordinary working day and two, because we were all feeling slightly under the weather. 😖 Luckily, the day was saved by a lovely friend who treated me to lunch & cake out and my sweet children (and their lovely Daddy), who made homemade cards, biscuits and turned up with a Lucy the Llama cake. 💓 This week is a little quiet, as I've got my head down finishing some commissions and it's also half term - just to add to the crazy 🤪 Have you got any plans? 🎈 #happyBirthdayToMe #craftsposure #NestAnd Flourish #WAHM #SmallBusinessOwnersClub #SmallBusinessLife #ArtistMeetsMother  #ShopIndependent  #CreativeBusinessOwner  #CreateMakeShare  #MeetTheMaker  #BritishJewellery #MadeInGB   #HandmadeJewellery  #JewelleryMaker  #MomentsThatMatterToMe  #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery #BabyKeepsakes #MumsInBusiness #JustACard #SmallBusinessUK #FamilyHeirlooms #PushPresent #ChristeningGift #NewbornGifts #HandmadeLife #HandmadeNecklace #FairtradeGold #MyNameIsMama

Details, details, details. 🎀 Just when I thought I had everything sorted for the launch, I realised I was running short of a whole load of things. 🙈 Printed ribbon, padded envelpes, sealing wax, postal boxes and tiny storage pots. Nothing that interesting, but important none the less. Now that’s all out of the way, the only thing left is to place a pretty important tool order with @cooksongold as I’m running desperately short of silver solder and wire, but every time I think I’m ready to checkout, I spot more lovely shiny things that I ‘need’ (Honest). 😉 Please tell me I’m not the only one with a minor tool addiction? 😆 #HiddenGems #MakingJewelry #JewelleryMaking #Goldsmith #HandmadeCreator #MomentsThatMatterToMe #SophiaAlexander #GoldFingerprintJewellery #JustACard #BabyGiftIdeas #GiftsForMom #GiftsForMum   #MamaWithStyle #StyleLikeAMother #FourthTrimester #BestBaby #MummyStyle #MumStyle #PushPresent #FashionOver40 #TreasuringLittleMoments #GirlOrBoy #MummyToBe   #BabyWearing #RaisingTheFuture #ThisMamaLife #StyleMum #MotherhoodAlive #MumDressCode #dresslikeamumtobe

So…………………………. Talk to me about Facebook lovely people. 🤔 I’ve pretty much lived here on Instagram for the past 2 years and apart from a really half-hearted attempt at re-posting my IG posts to Facebook, I’ve managed to avoid Facebook altogether. 🙈 But now the website’s going back online, I thought I better give it another go. See, I have a real love-hate relationship with Facebook. I love posting photos for family and friends to see and I love seeing what my family and friends are up to, but I don’t tend to follow a lot of businesses (really only ones my friends own – they interest me because I want to be supportive). I do belong to a few lovely groups, but other than that, I just don’t use it for business at all, which means I’m totally stuck for ideas. 😬 The only think I know, is that I don’t like pages that JUST post product photos all the time. 😖 So what makes a great Facebook page? What would make you follow? Are there any that are really interesting? That you really like or would recommend? Bonus points for Mother / Baby / Child related pages. 😂💓 #MummyStyle   #RaisingTheFuture #Expectful #ThisIsMotherhood #TeamMotherly #CandidChildhood #MamaWithStyle #StyleLikeAMother #FourthTrimester #BestBaby  #MotherhoodJourney  #MotherhoodMoments  #MotherhoodLife  #Mumstyle   #MummyCuddles  #MomentsThatMatterToMe  #SophiaAlexander  #GoldFingerprintJewellery   #MummyToBe  #MummyAndBaby   #MummyTime  #mummyMoments   #HiddenGems #PushPresent #TreasuringLittleMemories #TreasuringLittleMoments #PostpartumJourney #BeyondMotherhood #Beyond_Motherhood #girlorboy💗💙
