A new adventure – Black Dot Styled Stock

I’ve been hinting about something new I’ve been working on for AGES and I’m so excited to be finally sharing my new adventure.

I’ve worked with the amazing Natalie Morgan Photography on loads of projects over the past few years in business and I am thrilled that we are now working together on a new styled stock shop!

Introducing Black Dot Styled Stock!

I love styled stock and as a small business owner I know the benefit of using styled stock to make your business look great. Not all of us are as lucky as me to have access to such a great photographer at your fingertips so Natalie and I have teamed up to create a shop full of gorgeous styled stock that you can use for so many things.

Black Dot is all about modern stock imagery for creative businesses and bloggers.

Use styled stock for:

You will receive a high resolution, high quality image that you can use in so many ways. And it is yours to use over and over. I’m so excited to see what you guys come up with – Black Dot has something for everyone.

Over the next few weeks and months I’ll show you ways I love to use styled stock and hopefully motivate you to take your small business or shop to the next level.

Check out the range now. I’d love to hear what you think.

Looking for an easy solution to creative marketing?

Marketing and promoting your business is tough. I get it. It is tough enough to get your brand and product out there day in day out and make the sales, follow up and then … social media rears its ugly head. It is exhausting.

I’m excited to share with you all something new I’ve been working on which hopefully will make all of this a lot easier!

Stay tuned….

Instagram love – May

A Little Bright - Instagram May

Even though it has been a bit quiet round here I still love the Instagram format and ability to connect with new creatives. Here are a couple of snaps from my recent posts:

1. Along with everyone else who bought my 2016 calendar I love flipping over the pages to see what is next! 2. I had to take a snap of these sweet glitter toppers before sending them off to a customer – they are one of my favourites! 3. Even though it is getting colder I’m still trying to get out for a walk as often as I can. 4. My daily essentials – tablet and glasses.
