The YAY Makers: June Box

Whoooosh! Can someone please tell me where did June actually just go?! I think I blinked and missed it. It hardly feels like any time at all since I was blogging The YAY Makers: May Box but as we are now at the end of the month I have another fun and colourful bundle of YAY mail to share!! *happy dance*.

Who are The YAY Makers? 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. Go sign up and put some YAY in your day!

In June’s box: Festival Fun enamel pin by Poppekins / Girl Power greetings cards by Zabby Allen / Sprinkles by Rainbow Sweet Treats / Biscuit DIY Kit by Nikki McWilliams / Notebook by Lydia Meiying (extra gift).

As a thank you for sharing May’s box, the lovely Kate added an extra treat for me in June’s box! Thank you Kate! You can never have too many notebooks, and this is such a gorgeous addition for my collection. It is designed by Lydia Meiying who is a talented freelance Pattern Designer and Illustrator, inspired by children’s stories, fables and the wonders of the natural world. It’s beautiful, it is also 100% recycled – win, win!

For more stunning designs check out Lydia on Twitter / Instagram / Facebook.

My favourite type of baking is bright, colourful and as rainbow as possible. So, when I saw these RAINBOW SPRINKLES from Rainbow Sweet Treats I was like oh yesss this is my kinda thing! Alix is the creator behind this fabulous sweet shop that has everything from fun sprinkles to colourful custom made chocolate. Everything is bursting with colour and happy and would make the most perfect gift for any occasion!

Add a delicious sprinkle of fun to your social media by following Rainbow Sweet Treats on Instagram!

Inside June’s box, there are also a couple of recipe cards to spark some yummy inspiration! These sprinkles are perfect for decorating cakes, cookies or melted choc. I couldn’t resist getting creative with these delicious cupcakes and the rainbow sprinkles were such an awesome added touch! Yum! <3

One of the most exciting things about these boxes is seeing which new enamel pin I get. I have discovered such awesome designs thanks to The YAY Makers and this month is definitely a favourite. This is the fabulous helta skelter pin by Poppekins which fits perfectly in the summer festival theme. Poppekins is Carla van der Meer who designs fun and vibrant prints that are so bright, colourful, creative and happy! Yay! <3

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

It’s bright, fun and represents the colourful festival season – what is not to love!

I always love finding a cute and creative independent business and Zabby Allen is my latest favourite discovery. Zabby creates prints, notebooks, pins and patches inspired by all the things that make her happiest. These awesome cards are from the best selling Girl Power range and I’m loving the pinkness and sassiness. I’m also loving Zabby’s Rainbow Postcard Set to encourage more letter writing and happy mail.

Say yes to more positivity, rainbows and Girl Power by following Zabby on Twitter and Instagram.

Send these to your girl-pals to remind them how awesome they are! <3

The YAY Maker’s always include a little creative project to have fun with and this month we are making biscuits! This DIY kit is by Nikki McWilliams who makes bold and playful homeware and accessories which are inspired by British culture, contemporary Pop-Art and a lifelong love of having a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. Her shop is biscuits galore and I’m sooo looking forward to getting creative with this kit!

For all things bold, witty and biscuitty follow Nikki on Twitter and Facebook!

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!

    I am in LOVE with so many things here!! That notebook is bloody fabulous and I adore that pin so much, it’s so cute and colourful! My favourite HAS to be the Girl Power postcard though. I’d love to frame that and put it up in my room 🙂 i’m lucky enough to have quite a few great gal pals that I’d send that too, aswell! I used to get beauty boxes but when I have the money again, this is definitely going to be one I look into as I feel it’d be much more appropriate for me now, hehe.
