DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR
What Made my Way provides for you!
Spring Bulletin 2020 Expectation: Made my Way in 2020. After a great success in December, for Christmas bookings, I was excited for 2020 and what it would bring. Reality: Noone could have predicted this. COVID-19 has absolutely shook the world and everything we know. Everyone is having to adapt to a new way of life in lockdown and we are left to contemplate what will become of “regular” life once the lockdown is lifted. Trials and Tribulations I am sure for many of you this has been a challenging and difficult time. As it has been for many others, including Made my Way. Understandably commissions have slowed as people are in financial uncertainty with furlough and redundancies. I completely appreciate that many people are struggling and are left unsure of their prospects for the near future. Being furloughed myself I am having to juggle my finances to get by on the 80% that the government is covering. At this time, when small businesses are struggling, any and all support is greatly appreciated. Any degree of support from yourself would mean the world to me. All support is a MASSIVE help! Purchase a print, commission a portrait, donate any money to Made my Way to help keep this dream a float. If you do not have the money to spare then share Made my Way with your friends and family. Like, Comment and React on my Facebook page. Watch, like and comment on my videos on Youtube. And share all Made my Way’s platforms with your friends and family and spread the word of my work wide and far. You don’t know how much of a difference a reaction, like and share can make for my business and those tedious social media algorithms. Commissions? At the end of the day the postal services are still active so I can still produce and post artwork since I work from home. Postage may take longer and postal services may be different to normal but you can still purchase from the shop and request commissions. For any requests or to ask any questions do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Bored or want to be kept up-to-date? If you’re not already then head over to my Facebook page and like/follow Made my Way. I will be updating the Facebook page regularly throughout lockdown with my current project work. Join the community and feel free to comment on the posts and chat with me and like minded people.

My name is Kayleigh and I am the artist behind Made My Way. I started this enterprise back in February 2018. It was my dream to turn my passion for art and design into a local business. A business where I could: not just supplement my income but enrich my life. I wanted to share my work with others and give people a local, affordable source for beautiful and unique artwork. The more people able to enjoy real, original art the more that will understand and appreciate the artistry behind it. When someone buys artwork they are buying a piece of someone’s soul. The artist’s passion and heart went into the hours it took to create each piece of artwork. Art is beautiful and I want my life to be beautiful. As should everyone’s. Unfortunately I have undergone a lot these last few years, the last year in particular as been excessively hard for me. Hence why I haven’t managed to update the website as much as I’d of liked. However I have now changed my day job and financially I am in a better place. Though it will take a little longer to fully recover. Health wise, I am feeling better in myself. Now that my stress levels are considerably lower. However my chronic illness is still uncured and I am still trying new things to improve this affliction. Not wanting to sound all doom and gloom, I truly feel a lot better. I’m still loving my art and have produced some beautiful commissions for customers. I always love to hear of my customers reactions to their unique pieces. It warms my heart and that is why I do what I do. On that note, Made My Way is currently taking on new commissions. Please head to the Commissions Page to find out more information or to request your very own portrait. Commission prices are extremely affordable and there are options available for everyone’s budget! This year I have high hopes for Made My Way. If all goes to plan I will be producing new artwork. Not only in my signature pastel pencil but also venturing into acrylic paintings. Whilst still producing occasional pencil and watercolour pieces. In 2019 I also hope to start production of some wearable accessories. This will include canvas bags, clutch bags, purses and possibly other designs. Some of which will include exclusive Made My Way embroidered designs. It is also my wish to experiment with polymer clay more. Hopefully producing some sculpture pieces and potentially some wearable pieces too. It is going to be an exciting year and I hope you all come along for the ride with me. I appreciate any and all patronage given to this venture. You are what allows this dream to continue to blossom and I hope that it will continue to bloom and grow!
