"BE YOU"

Excitingly Squiggles & Dot. has been gaining more support and love! We have new followers on social media and lots of new peeps checking out our site which is AWESOME! But for those of you who don't know much about us, I thought it would be useful to share our posts from the 7 day 'BE YOU' Indie Roller Instagram challenge! This was a fab challenge to tell you about my little biz, where we came from, where we hope to go, and the good times & the bad!!!



DAY ONE - YOU ⚑️🌈

Hello πŸ‘‹πŸ»!! I’m Georgia, the designer and creator of@squiggles_and_dot. I spend most of my time in dungarees with flecks of paint and glue in my hair πŸ™ˆ. I love collecting things and still don’t like to accept the fact that I’m messy! (It’s easier to tell myself that I just need a BIGGER studio...)


I trained as a psychologist but suffered a life changing accident at work. I now live with a chronic pain condition which has been incredibly hard and a HUGE adjustmentπŸ€•. The silver lining ☁️ is that when I unexpectedly had to turn my life around I came back to my passion for all things arts and crafts!


Crafting became my therapy for living with constant pain. Squiggles & Dot. slowly developed from making crafts for my wedding as well as gifts for friends & family, into the little biz you see here ☝🏻.


Although things have been tough I am so lucky because I have an amazing husband, amazing family, amazing friends and my amazing cat 🐱 , all who never stop supporting me.


I love what I do and feel blessed that I have this opportunity to share my love of art and craft. Although things don’t always work out the way you think, if there’s one thing I’ve learnt is to look for the positives and seize it with both hands.


I have a ton of amazing plans for S&D. and have learnt a HUGE amount! I am keeping my fingers & toes crossed that we will be successful 🀞🏻. It may not be easy getting a small business off the ground but either way I’m loving the journey.


Our customers are most important to us and we do everything we can to make sure you love your items. β€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ


DAY TWO - YOUR WORK ⚑️🌈


I absolutely love decoupaging - one of my all time favourite craft mediums βœ‚οΈπŸ–Œ. I just adore how many possibilities there are,- not to mention how amazing products look when they’re finished! πŸ‘ŒπŸ» β­οΈπŸ’•


Check out some of my favourite makes so far πŸ” . I’m showcasing a bit of everything from decoupaged items, hair accessories, baby & children’s gifts etc!!! It was hard to choose just a few 😳... That said, it’s been really good to take the time to look back at how far my work has come and what I have achieved.


I’m so grateful for all the support from the insta community - you guys are just amazing πŸ’«!!!

DAY THREE - YOUR WORK SPACE ⚑️🌈


So this is where the magic happens - my craft haven πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŽ¨πŸ’«!!!


This is certainly THE most used room in our flat. I’m so lucky to have a dedicated space and I absolutely love it πŸ’•β­οΈ. In fact if I had to choose I would probably choose my craft room over my bedroom. I even have a spot for my craft companion (my cat) - she likes to climb up the back of my chair or snooze on the printer while I work 😹😹😹




I’d love to keep it clean and tidy all the time but I find that so tricky when I’m actually creating 🌈!! (Scroll across to see what I mean πŸ”πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ) It’s filled with so many treasures and I just like to have EVERY item all out at once - not the most practical strategy but that’s me!!
