Just A Card - You #justacard

Just a card? Find out more here. Very basically, this is what it is all about...

Today is all about 'you' aka 'my story'. Well, I have always loved being outside drawing, doodling, creating and making.  My earliest memory is walking through the woods with a list of items to find and tick off: feather, leaf, crow, squirrel and so on.  Over the years my love for nature became the influences behind what I draw and paint, then the addiction I have to sharing photos on Instagram and some pieces I turn into cards.  You can find my current stock of cards by clicking here. At the moment I have limited stock as I have sold out and am about to tweak a few ideas that I have, so get these remaining cards whilst you can!
For me, when someone purchases a card or asks if I can turn one of my photos or artworks into a card for them, it means that I have captured in them the feeling I had when I took the photo or created the piece of work.  They can see a part of what I have, that inspiration and meaning. Best of all, it means they like what I have produced -and who does not like that feeling! A bit like a big tick or A+++ saying yes, what you are doing is good. It also means a bit of money too, so more supplies to create even more pieces of art and get more cards printed.

GDPR... got to be done, so here it is!

Image result for gdpr free images getty 
I expect many of you have received numerous emails over the last week or so relating to GDPR… by law I need to just update you on my position with this so here it is.   

Grab a cuppa… make yourself comfy …

Firstly, I do not store any information so there is nothing to share or pass on! You will not have had an email from me as I do not have contact details or an email list that I send things out from.  I used to use Mailchimp but realised social media was a better method of reaching people and removed subscribers and closed that account a few years ago.  Hands up, how many times do you get an email in your inbox, click delete before even opening it or vow to read it later, but never do…  this may change in time, but for me at this time I have no need for newsletters, lists of contact details etc.  So in that respect I am compliant!

Secondly, if you have ever purchased an item or service from me, I use third party platforms such as Folksy or Etsy.  Please visit these sites to view their compliancy statements.

Thirdly, if you have ever emailed me or messaged me, I am a bit OCD and change my passwords every 2 weeks. It is in my diary.  Yes that is sad! But, it means my emails, social media accounts etc are as safe as I can possibly make them from my end.  Please note you can always login to your social media accounts to update your preferences to following me at anytime.  Also, I do not sell my followers list or pass them on. 

Finally, if you have any questions or issues, you can click 'contact me' on the button above. As you have just read, your details will be safe, not passed on, added to a list or used in doing so other than replying back to you!
