Meet The Makers
One of the joys of hand created products is that there is an actual person and story behind each one! The #alltheexcuses box is full of unique, beautiful items made by talented Australian artisans. Meet this month's box makers:
Erica from BakedByErica
Far from just baking absolutely amazing cookies, Erica uses her business to help fund projects to support, train and educate communities in the Philippines. Her Food for Thought program will deliver monthly meals, lessons and activities to 430 primary school children. The lessons and activities are designed to foster the growth mindset in these children, to inspire them to think and live differently.
There is no need to feel guilty about breaking your diet with these delicious cookies, you are helping to change children's lives!
Jodi from the Tea Crowd
Jodie stopped drinking coffee years ago due to issues with her digestive system and this really cemented her interest in tea for the taste and bonus health benefits. As a mum who couldn't have coffee she needed something that could give her a little bit of a pick-me-up after a long night but also a way to steal a moment of relaxation on a crazy day.
Her teas are created using natural and Australian Certified Organic(ACO) herbs, fruits and tea leaves. Hand-blended in small batches for quality in freshness and taste, they are packaged here in Perth, Western Australia.
Kim from Kim Wallace Ceramics
Born and raised in a small town in the Netherlands, Kim has been calling Australia home since 2000. Her passion for art and craft lead her to do many arts-based courses over the years, including ceramics, painting and drawing.
In 2008 she left her graphic design job to begin her business, where she uses clay sourced from Australia for her beautiful homewares. She just opened a new studio in Noosa, Queensland (which looks incredible!!) where Kim and her team create gorgeous ceramics by hand.
Teri from Color Me Cosy
That's me! Hi!
My story isn't really inspirational, I'm lazy at heart and like to comfortable while I'm at it ;)
My life has had it's ups and downs like everyone's and I'm learning how important self care really is. It's so, so important to take the time for yourself, to make that time and despite what I thought for years, it isn't selfish. So I created this box as a way to help you create a space where you feel comfortable, and basically give you an excuse to sit and just chill for a while. Because if you've bought this box, you have actually use the products in it, right?
