If you haven’t previously heard of The Yay Makers, that’s because they’re a new UK subscription box celebrating independent artists! They promote fun, positivity, wellness and a love for handmade and hand designed items.
‘Each month will feature an artist and you can expect to receive items such as; tote bags, pin badges, notebooks, patches, stationery, stickers and anything else that the wonderful artists have designed! Postage is free and there are a variety of methods which you can sign up with – including a one-off box.’ May Review
This month’s featured artist was Katie Abey (@katieabey). Bold colours, prints and often animal centred designs, she’s definitely got a unique style.Her pin, ‘The Bear of Bravery’ was designed and made exclusively for this box. I love it’s quirky design and the positive message that it stands for.
The next two products both came from Nicola Rowland (@nicolarowlands). Firstly this badass pocket mirror, showing Monday’s who’s boss! And, similarly designed greetings cards.
These are perfect for me to give to my teaching assistants whom I’ve spent two lovely years with. Sadly, I have to accept that they are moving on! I love the quirky designs and they perfectly suit the tongue in cheek friendship that we have. They’re also perfect for framing on the wall – so eye catching.
Penultimately, a colourful burst of confetti is perfect for brightening up your day. Additionally, an ideal prop for any blogger. I love the boldness and colour it brought to my photographs. I’ll also be including some in my cards, because I’m a little mischievous! @pops_of_colour
Each box also contained an amazing bath bomb from Unique Creations (@uniquecreationssoapandart). This is in their signature scent which smells a mixture between palma violets and fizzers – it’s delicious. They also sell a cute unicorn bathbomb on their Etsy store!
Oh! How could I forget the pick n’ mix?! Each both also contained a selection of traditional penny sweets. Although, I’ll admit, not all made it as far as the photoshoot…
Each box is £15.50 (including postage) and has an estimated value of over £25.00.
Thank you to The Yay Makers (@theyaymakers) for gifting me this box, I loved discovering all of the new artists.
