The YAY Makers: May Box

Yayyyy, The YAY Makers Subscription Boxes have returned for 2019! Our monthly yay package was put on hold whilst Kate went on maternity leave to have the adorable Mabel (congrats!) and now they have returned with this super-fun box of goodies! Yipeeee! I’m so excited to share with you this months awesome bundle of happy and introduce you to some fantastically talented artists and creators.

Who are The YAY Makers? If you haven’t seen the boxes I blogged last year (October and November) then here is a quick catch up. The YAY Makers love teaming up with inspirational Indie artists to accessorise your life with colour and motivate you to get creative. Each box contains limited-edition products from talented makers, creators and designers from across the world. Click here to sign up and put some YAY in your day!

Each month you will receive a fab box of surprises which never fail to put a smile on my face. It includes all the ingredients which makes me ridiculously happy such as a limited edition enamel pin (pin addict here!) from a featured artist and an array of fun colourful things to brighten up your life and spark creativity.

In May’s box: Sparkly coin purse from Pup Tart / Personalised print from BowlerBearDesigns / Adventurer enamel pin from Ted & Kip / YAY Festival toppers from Poppekins / Badge DIY Kit from The Make Arcade.

Sparkly coin purse from Pup Tart: How gorgeous is this mini purse in this beautiful mermaid colour? Pup Tart is the talented creator Hannah and her incredibly cute doggie, Indy. Their slogan is: We love making pretty things and getting messy at the same time! And if you check out their shop, you will see a hugeee collection of pretty, sparkly handmade accessories from glittery bags to adorable pet party bow ties! The range is fun, bright and joyful and is constantly being updated with new and interesting designs.

Add some sparkle to social media by following Pup Tart on: Twitter / Instagram / Facebook.

Personalised print from BowlerBearDesignsI’m loving this bold and bright B print, I feel like it was made for Hello Bexa and fits in perfectly with all my other colourful postcards. BowlerBearDesigns are a husband and wife duo, with Simone (the artist) creating stunning prints and designs all popping with pretty pastels! Head over to their shop for thoughtful and special handmade cards and gifts – I’m especially loving the You Are All Kinds Of Wonderful rainbow birthday card and these freestanding decorative dinos!

For allll the pretty pastels, add BowlerBearDesigns to your socials: Instagram / Facebook.

YAY Festival toppers from Poppekins: I am already familiar with Poppekins, having discovered her awesomeness in the very first YAY Makers box I ordered. Poppekins is Carla van der Meer who designs fun and vibrant prints with an Etsy shop that is absolutely bursting with colour and creativity! My fave prints are the Follow Your Dreams postcard and this Rainbow love hearts postcard *heart eyes*. I just know these Festival toppers are going to be so cool for my creative projects, hello scrapbooking!

Keep up with all the colourfulness by following Poppekins on: Twitter / Instagram / Facebook.

Adventurer enamel pin from Ted & Kip: The talented featured artist this month is Anna, the illustrator and colourful quirky lady behind Ted & Kip. Anna creates weird and wonderful characters which aims to be unique, different and less cuddly than what is currently on the market. This prehistoric dino adventurer pin loves exploration and the great outdoors. Ted & Kip is all about quirkiness and imagination offering a range of fun products from pins to prints and badges to bags. Head over to Anna’s shop to see all the creativity!

Add some quirkiness to your feeds by following Ted & Kip on: Twitter / Instagram / Facebook.

Badge DIY Kit from The Make Arcade: In each box, The YAY Makers include things to inspire our creaYAYtiveness – this month we have a DIY badge kit from The Make Arcade who are passionate about sewing, crafting and making. The founder, Ruth, creates DIY kits, Craft kits and Sewing Kits to guide you and inspire you. My favourite kits are the brilliant Sewing Llama Kit, Sewing Rainbow Kit, and this Make Today Amazing Cross Stitch Kit. This is most definitely the one-stop-shop for all things crafty and creative!

Find your next DIY project here and follow along on Facebook too!

I hope you enjoyed having a look at all the talented artists and Indie businesses in this month’s box. I love that The YAY Makers enable us to discover awesome creators and find new favourite shops!

    This box sounds like such a great idea that has so much fun and creativity in it. I think my favourite has to be that coin purse – it is gorgeous! Such a pretty colour, and you can never go wrong with sparkles! They would also match my current nails as I have the mermaid on it 😀

    I wondered why I hadn’t seen any YAY reviews on your site – now I understand! What a lovely box of goodies, Bexa. My favourites are the coin purse and the DIY craft badge, the lightning flash is fab. It’s such a wonderful way to discover small independent retailers that you wouldn’t necessarily come across any other way. And you’re right, that personalised card is perfect for Hello Bexa, the style and colours are just spot on. Lovely reviews and gorgeous photos as always, thank you for sharing – and a welcome return to the YAY makers too 🙂 xx
