Cody from Lu & Ed has long been my favorite #mompreneur. She loves her kids. Her business is awesome. Encouraging other small biz owners is something she is always finding time to do. Since December 2016, Cody has been “researching, experimenting, and perfecting the perfect mix of hashtags for a handmade business.” Not only that, she has put them into sections based on post type to make it easier for your to use the ones you need. If you have not been introduced to Cody yet or heard of Lu & Ed, you totally should. She will be your favorite mompreneur too.

Tag Bundles

“There’s a various amount of tags in each group, and several are repeated in different groups. Repeated tags are great for use on basically any post about handmade businesses! Then there are some that are highly targeted for specific types of posts, from WIP images to finished products to selfies & more! I set it up this way so you can copy & paste directly from this list into your IG posts, then add your own curated tags specific to your medium – for instance, I usually throw in tags like #monstertoys, #toystorage or #instagramkids for my Mon-stor posts.

“If you make jewelry, you will want to put in specific tags – #handmadejewelry #datenight #wedding #bridetobe #prom and so on! For drawing or painting or art makers, you will want to use specific tags like #prismacolor #penandink #drawing #watercolor and on and on. These little tag packets just help you get started!” – 100+ hashtags for handmade businesses… by Cody

Brand Discovery: The Edible Museum

I Found A Shop,

And They Have Chocolate Frogs!

These Chocolates Look Like Frogs Rather Than Jump Like Them.

While browsing around the internet I came across a brand that looks awesome! It’s called The Edible Museum! No, I haven’t tasted their chocolate, I don’t even know where they ship from, but I had to share it. Their product photos are spectacular and so unique.


Sarah from The Edible Museum stopped by the blog and shared that The Edible Museum is “based in the Essex countryside in the UK and ship worldwide. Although we do try to avoid places in heatwaves for obvious reasons!” (post updated 13 of March 2017)

Anna Rastorgueva: Inspirational Nature Journal Artist

Instagram is filled with galleries from amazing artists. One of my favorite galleries to peruse is the profile of Anna Rastorgueva. I do not read or speak Russian. Thankfully her art speaks for itself because it is truly spectacular. I’ve compiled a series of her images that are reminiscent of field journals.
