What a month! I have to start this month’s blog with a huge thanks to you – my customers and loyal supporters. Despite being in lockdown and unable to attend some awesome craft fairs as I had hoped – your online support of Cardiau Mwydro has enabled a thriving month full of creativity and orders. Your support truly does mean the world.
Here’s a quick round up of some of my highlights from the month of May:
Father’s Day Launch
It was great to see such a positive response to the launch of my Father’s Day Collection for 2020. This year I’ve chosen to showcase three types of hand-drawn cards, available in both English and Welsh as well as a Custom Order service.
I’ve loved creating so many unique cards and to help so many to celebrate with their father’s this year, wherever they may be! Interested in ordering? Be sure to get in touch in plenty of time to place your order.
May also saw the celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week, where I thanked customers on Facebook for their continued support during this strange and difficult period.
Having been recently furloughed from my full-time work I’m very greatful for the opportunity to keep busy and keep creative by making so many different cards for my wonderful customers. You all are truly amazing.
Here are a few other things that have been good for my mental health during lockdown:
- Spending lots of time outdoors, including sunny walks by the Menai Straight and taking my craft work out to the garden
- Keeping to a routine
- Being creative and not putting too much pressure on myself

May has been one of my busiest months for Custom Orders, alowing friends and families to celebrate special occasions together from birthdays to new babies to engagements. Here are a few of my personal favourites created in the last month.
Also a huge thanks to those who have taken the time to leave reviews on my Facebook. As a small business your support truly means the world.
Hwb Menter / Enterprise Hub Workshops
As I mentioned, now as I’m on furlough leave from my full time work I have more time on my hands. I’ve always been someone who is eager to learn and grow – and so it was great to see M-Sparc’s Enterprise Hwb Menter launch a series of free webinars for business owners.
I’ve attended a few sessions on Marketing and Blogging and learnt a lot from them all, and I’ve now booked on to attend more in June. For more information check out the Enterprise Hub’s Facebook page. Are you attending one of their sessions too? Let me know!
For the month of June I hope I can keep the same momentum as May, starting the month off by completing more Father’s Day Orders. I’m also aiming to launch an exciting new product within the month too so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Is there anything specific you’d like to see from Cardiau Mwydro? Let me know! I’m always open to ideas. Leave a comment below or pop me a message!
All the best and well wishes to you all!
