Day 25 #marchmeetthemaker
HOW IT'S MADE

My best seller this year so far is my Massage & Body Oil so I thought I tell you about that today. 🌻I grow my own calendula , from seed, in my garden at The Wrens Nest. It fills my garden with gorgeous colour and brings the bees and butterflies in in their droves. I pick them after they've had their time to shine, dry them and then infuse them in organic sunflower oil to make my calendula oil. They sit in the sun for a couple of months to infuse the oil and soak up the solar power of the summer sun.
🌻Then the only thing that's added is my own essential oil blends to create the different oils. Happy. Stress Less. Kays Blend. Fatigued? Beautiful? One for the Girls. There is one to suit every mood and to help many ailments. It's just a matter of finding the one for you!

💛This is the Face Cream my own Mammy uses so if its good enough for her, it's good enough for anyone!
💛Especially good if your skin is super sensitive or prone to allergies or breakouts. The blend of lavender, chamomile & rose is super calming to sore skin and smells divine on your skin.
💛Mothers Day orders need to be in by Wednesday morning to be guaranteed delivery in time for the big day.

💐It's just a week to Mothers Day and only a few days before last posting day so if you're not organised, time to get your skates on.
💐As a Mammy myself I can honestly say that it's not about big gestures, though they're nice now and again. Its honestly the thought that counts. And if that's a bar of dark chocolate coz my daughter knows how much I love a bit of 90% or a big bunch of flowers she's picked herself, it doesn't matter.
💐It's just knowing that a bit of thought and lots of love went into it.
💐Treat you Mam this year to something that will go on making her feel special long after the day has passed - 100% natural  aromatherapy soaps & skincare, made using flowers grown in my own garden, along with plant based oils and butters! Lots of extra Mammy love in there too😁

Day 23 #marchmeetthemaker
TOP TIP OR ADVICE 💜This was a total game changer for me. I joined the free, online community Bite the Biscuit, @biscuitcommunity in Nov 2016 and discovered a world of creative souls who were working away on their passions and supporting each other and singing the praise of each other and it changed every thing for me.
💜Here were people who thought the same way I did, had the same struggles, celebrated each others achievement and most importantly wanted to live their lives doing what they loved. Some were already doing that, very successfully. Others were toying with the idea and yet more just had the seed of an idea in their brains. It gave me hope that I could make a living out of doing what I love.
💜2 and a bit years later, I've left my day job to work at Naturally at the Wrens Nest full time and I would never have done that without the support of the Biscuit community, its wonderful founder, @tarabooprendergast and my colleagues from the Biscuit Factory.
🧡So that's my top tip. Surround yourself with like minded souls who will support and encourage you and who knows, your dreams may very well become a reality!

Day 22 #marchmeetthemaker
MOST PROUD OF... 💜What I'm most proud of is just how far I've come in the last 2 yrs!

This photo was taken in the Summer of 2017, very shortly after my brother passed away and its quite hard to look at because I can see the pain all over my face. It was a horrendously difficult time but I coped by throwing myself into my work and as a result things really took off! I really felt like he was behind me, pushing me all the way and I could hear him talking to me. I'd often have conversations with him while I was working and it helped my cope with that awful time.

Fast forward a year and a half later, I still talk to him regularly, especially when I'm trying to decide on something. My business is doing so well. I left my day job in January of this year, several conversations with Colin about this one, to focus on my business full time. Its been a terrifying and exciting couple of months. I'm not gonna lie, there have been sleepless nights, it's not been all fun and games BUT I'm so proud that I had the balls to take that step and I know my bro would be proud of me too, sure doesn't he tell me regularly 😁😉💙

Day 21 #marchmeetthemaker
THROWBACK

I fell off the marchmeetthemaker wagon for a couple of days but I'm back on again!
This picture is from Mothers Day 2 years ago when I was not long into my Naturally journey! I should look at these photos more often just to remind myself of how far I've come along.
The labels were made with a label maker😅 The recipe for my best selling Ageing Gracefully is still the same but the packaging has come along a bit, I'm glad to say.
Still a great Mothers Day gift for the woman who raised you!

💥ANOTHER NEW SOAP💥

There is really only one way I can describe the scent of this soap and that is kinda sexy! Its the combination of vanilla, ginger & ylang ylang essential oils that give it a truly unique but gorgeous scent. It lingers on your skin for hours after, no doubt helped by the generous amount of gorgeous red clay, that not only gives the soap a luxurious feel on the skin but helps to fix the scent to your skin! This is one to use in the shower when you want to feel like an all powerful goddess!

"" my poor hands have been so dry this last few months, I was developing cracks in my skin and a type of eczema on my knuckles, I have tried almost every brand of hand cream available including the brand recommended from my work place (hospital grade product designed for hands using aseptic soaps etc) and nothing was working..until now! My beautiful scented package arrived from Naturally at the Wrens Nest and among other delights was my pot of hand cream, well in 3 days my hands were soft supple and the skin has began to heal already, the firm butter just melts instantly onto your hands and is a wonderful sensation both in texture and scent! I can not recommend these products enough, totally made with love and I think it is very obvious!  well done Danielle""…Mairead in Dublin

💥NEW SOAP💥
I’m so excited to bring you this soap as its been something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I wanted to create a soap that would transport you to your favourite beach and when you close your eyes you could almost feel the sand beneath your feet and taste the salt water on the air! I think the magical blend of lemon verbena, vetivert & lavender essential oils combined with the wild harvested seaweed, from the beaces of West Kerry, manages to do just that. I hope you agree!

💜Received my bag of goodies from Danielle in the middle of the week and after using them I feel like I’ve given myself a mini luxury spa treatment every morning 🌟. From the soap to the deodorant (which actually works even though I had my doubts) to say I’m happy with the products is an understatement. I’ll happily swap all my big brand named products for Danielle’s any day!! 😉....Caitrin 💜The customer says it best 😁

💜For Her... Gift Set #MothersDay

These are all products that my own Mammy loves so I think its a pretty good assumption that other Mammies will too. Mammy Doody has good taste!

Show her how much she’s appreciated by giving her products that will make her feel lovely and loved and the extra added bonus is that they will help her ‘older’ skin too. The face cream is packed with anti ageing ingredients. The body oil is formulated especially to help deal with hormonal issues and the hand cream is for hard working hands that, lets face it, all the Mammies have. Finally the lavender soap just smells lush and there aren’t too many mammies that don’t appreciate a lovely soap! 💜Link to my website and shop in bio

💜I know only too well, as a Mammy myself, how much running around the Mammies are doing. Always looking after everyone else and putting everyone else before themselves.
💜So make sure you show your own Mammy how much you appreciate everything she does for you this Mothers Day. Sometimes it's just the little things that often mean the most.
💜Frankincense, Rose geranium and Neroli essential oils make this facial moisturiser really special! And even if the Mammy only has a couple of minutes to herself in the morning, using this first thing will get her day off to the very best start and she'll feel loved and appreciated every time she uses it!

🧡It's a long Weekend and I'm taking a few days off to go visiting with my daughter. The need to switch off for a couple of days is strong, the batteries need recharging after a mental week, with Mercury in retrograde not helping matters! Anyone else feel VERY emotionally affected by the planetary happenings at the moment?
🧡So we're packing bags this morning and heading south for a few days. My packing has gotten much more streamlined as I've gotten older. I bring less crap with me now but the one necessity, apart form the toothbrush, is my Naturally products - deodorant, face cream and a soap - and I'm good to go!
🧡My On the Fly travel bag has everything youll need for a few days, or even a week, away - cleanser, face cream, deo, body butter and soap - all in a gorgeous handmade, handprinted, environmentally friendly calico bag.
🧡Only question is, where will you go?

Day 15 #marchmeetthemaker
INSPIRATION/MOTIVATION 💜What inspires me? My garden in the height of Summer. My daughter. The gorgeous countryside on my doorstep. The natural world in all its guises. The work of other creative people. The @biscuitcommunity
💜What motivates me? The need to create for myself a life around the work I do. To create a simple life. To inspire my daughter to appreciate and protect the gorgeous natural world around us. The love of what I do. Bills, bills motivate me 😉

Day 14 #marchmeetthemaker
HOW I LEARNT 💜I guess I've been learning since I was a kid, unbeknown to myself. My Mam is a fantastic gardener and my Nana was pretty nifty too, when she had the time, and I guess I was soaking up all their knowledge as I was growing up but I never grew a single flower until I bought my own house, almost 12 years ago.
💜I worked as a store manager for Lush for a couple of years, also before I bought my house and that was where my love affair for all things natural truly began in earnest. I learned so much working with them.
💜Fast forward 10 years, my love of gardening was in full flow and I did a soap making course for a day and boom! I started to read everything I could get my hands on about making natural skincare, started experimenting and I'm still learning, every day! It's a life long journey and I'm enjoying the dance!

#HowILearnt This is a pic of the very first thing I ever made in glass! I was 16 yrs old doing a one day stained glass workshop with Angelika De Barra. From there I ended up doing my school work experience with Angelika and the next thing I know I have a Saturday job assisting Angelika in her studio. I now have a degree in Glass from University of Wolverhampton, a post grad diploma in hot glass from Bournemouth and Poole College and my very own stained glass business!! ⁣

Day 13 #marchmeetthemaker
PHOTOGRAPHY
📸 Another one of those things you have to be reasonably good at as a small business owner is taking pictures.
📸When I look back at the earlier pictures of my products I feel a bit cringe but then I see how far I've come since and I'm very proud of myself.
📸This is due, in large, to meeting the wonderful @anadorado . Not only has she become a very dear friend but she has taught me so much about taking pictures. She has been to the Wrens Nest to take some gorgeous pictures of my garden and I recently attended a workshop with her, which will be launched very soon, where she teaches small business owners how to take better product pictures. Check out her feed, it's one of the most beautiful!

Day 12 #marchmeetthemaker
HANDS AT WORK
💚This is where the whole Naturally process begins for me - in the garden with some teeny tiny seeds.
💚I grow calendula, lavender & chamomile flowers, which all make their way into my products in fthe form of infused oils and dried flowers.
💚I LOVE getting my hands mucky and there is nothing I love more than a long day in the garden, planting and tending my flowers! Roll on the Summer and those glorious, long days!
💚I don't use any chemicals in my garden. I make my own bug repellent if the green fly get out of control but generally the garden takes care of itself. A chemical free garden is a happy, healthy garden and a part of the greater ECO system, which is hugely important to me. And this means that the flowers from my garden that go into my product are the very best quality they can be and full of their potent plant power!
💚If this sounds fascinating to you, my new workshop might be of interest to you, link in bio.

💜 It's freezing cold, windy , wet and wild out there this evening and I don't like it. I don't do cold and I'm longing for long summer days!!
💜It's time to bring out the lavender in all its forms to fill me with the scent of Summer days in the garden and evenings sat outside until dark.
💜It gets me through these months until we really start to feel a bit of warmth in the air and proper sun in the sky.
💜If you're feeling the need of some  Summer on your skin, follow the link in my bio to my website 🌞

#marchmeetthemaker Day 11
REDUCING WASTE 💚Naturally at the Wrens Nest is fully committed to being as green as we can, not just as a business but in our day to day life as well.
💚I don't use chemicals in my garden as this is where I grow flowers for my business and food for our table. No chemicals means a healthier garden which is an active part of the ECO system.
💚My soaps come to you unpackaged, with a paper info wrap. My creams and oils come in glass or aluminium pots.
💚My orders are wrapped up with brown paper and string and decorated with dried flowers and compostabe washi tape.
💚My gift sets come in compostabe cardboard boxes with compostable paper wrapping. I'm still using reusable ribbon but working on a recyclable option.
💚I'm working really hard to make sure my suppliers are also ethical business with good, green practises in place.
💚💚Being as green as I can be and constantly improving on what I use in my business is SUPER IMPORTANT to me. I imagine I will be working on this continuously with my business and also in my personal life. It's so important to me to be doing my bit for the environment and also to impress on my daughter the importance of leaving this gorgeous world of ours in better state than we currently find it.

💛I don't know about you but as I get older the aches and pains seem to be there all the time. I keep fairly fit, I walk everyday and do yoga but I guess it's just getting older and the body protesting a little. 💛Sunday mornings are for long walks and seeing as the weather isn't too atrocious out there yet , I'm going to make hay while the, very bright this morning, sun shines and get out there fast!
💛My trusty Kays Blend will be waiting for me when I get back and I will be lashing it on after my shower. The anti inflammatory and pain relieving blend is a blessing 😁 💛Enjoy your Sunday folks x

#marchmeetthemaker Day 10. ME
🌼So todays prompt is all about the person behind the brand. I'm Danielle, 47, single parent to Ella, who's 9 and my greatest achievement to date!
🌼My great love, apart from my daughter, is the natural world,in all its forms. There is nothing I love more than to be outside. That can be in my garden, in the woods, by the sea, in a field of wildflowers, in a park, hiking up a mountain - Im not choosy, I just love being out in nature. It feeds my soul and inspires me everyday.

Day 9 #marchmeetthemaker THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME 💚When I moved into my house, almost 12 years go now, I wanted it to have a name. So I put it out there to my family to see what they would come up with. It's an old, small, cozy cottage so my uncle came up with the name The Wrens Nest. Being one of the smallest birds here in Ireland they have a small but cozy nest so it seemed appropriate and I loved it.
💚Jump forward 9 years later when I was starting out on my journey as a maker of natural sops and skincare and Naturally at the Wrens Nest seemed a perfect fit. I still love it!

I wanted a business name that didn't tie me down to one material, one that could grow and evolve with me. My mother has always called me a free spirit so it wasn't a very big word cloud till I landed on WildBird. I love the imagery that it evokes. ⁣

This #wallpocket is one of the best sellers from my product range. It's water tight so you can put cut flowers in it or plant #cacti and #succulents either. Hanging it up on a wall means you have a vertical garden for when space is an issue or for around small children, cats and dogs who like to knock vases off tables!!⁣

Day 6 #marchmeetthemaker FULL OR PART TIME
🧡I only recently, like 7 weeks ago, made the jump to full time business owner. I left my job of the last 10 years in a garden centre, which I did love, to work on Naturally at the Wrens Nest full time.
🧡It was a decision I spent alot of time thinking about and the main reason I did it was because I wanted a different life. I wanted to be the one making the decisions about everything, without having to consult anyone else. That comes with its own pressure but it's also incredibly freeing.
🧡Im a single parent and my daughter is growing up so quickly, she's 9, and I wanted to be around to see that and to be there for her. I also wanted to live my life my way. I dont want to take over the world with my business but I want to make a comfortable living and I want to grow my business and try some of the mad ideas I have in my head. I want Naturally at the Wrens Nest to be my life and a way of living not just a job.
🧡So now I work more hours probably than I ever did but it doesn't seem like work, it's just my life. I love what I'm doing and I'm so excited to see how it develops and grows alongside me and not separately to me.

Day 5 #marchmeetthemaker CLOSE UP OR DETAIL 💙I love this photo, which happened kinda accidently. It's some of the wild harvested seaweed, collected from the beaches of West Kerry, that goes into my new Seaweed Soap, which will be available very soon!
💙I love how the seaweed looks like its glowing. It looks like it's seeping all its magical powers into the soap it's sitting on. And that pretty much sums up for me what I do.
💙I take the very best natural ingredients that nature has to offer and I put them into my soaps and skincare so that you can feel connected to nature and feel the energy of nature when you use them.

NEW PRODUCT ALERT
💜This cold weather can be hard on our skin. Not just if you're outside in it but we tend to take hotter showers when the weather is cold and the heating is on more in the house too, all of which can dehydrate the skin and make it feel tight, itchy or parched.
💜Lashing on a body butter packed with skin loving, deeply moisturising butters and oils can make a massive difference.
💜Organic Shea butter, organic coconut oil and sweet almond oil are the 100%  pure, natural ingredients that go into my Whipped Body Butters. Your skin will love you for it!
💛Serenity is a BRAND NEW blend. Jasmine, Bergamot & Vetivert give this a beautiful fresh, green, summery, delicious scent. Treat your skin today. Link In bio.

Day 4 #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker TOOLS & MATERIALS 🧡It all beings for me in the garden, growing flowers - calendula, chamomile & lavender. These form the basis and the inspiration for what I do.
🧡I grow them from seed, harvest them throughout the summer, dry them to use in my soaps and also to make infused oils that I use to make my products.
🧡I get to combine my love of gardening and all things natural, with my passion for creating gorgeous aromatherapy soaps & skincare.
🧡So my flowers are my materials and my hands are the tools that create. 🌻🌼

This is my grinding wheel. It takes the sharp edge off the glass making it safer to handle, but you still get lots of cuts and splinters and horrible prune fingers in the cold water. Its not my fav process!! 😂⁣⠀

💛Anyone like me who suffers with poor circulation will find this cold weather plays havoc on your hands and feet. My feet especially really suffer in the cold.
💛That's why I always have pot of Happy Feet on my bedside locker and morning and evening, getting into and out of my bed, this beauty gets lashed on. The blend of peppermint and benzoin resin, mixed with shea butter, cocoa butter & calendula oil, not only smells AMAZING but it soothes, heals, softens and helps improve circulation. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed!

Day 3 #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker FLATLAYS
🧡12 months ago I probably didn't know what a flatly was and then I met photographer @anadorado and all that changed. I have been so lucky to have Ana work with me taking product and lifestyle photos for my business and she has taught me sooo much.
🧡I never realised how much work goes into taking a single photo and am in awe of people like Ana who make it look easy
🧡It's another thing I've had to learn as a small business owner because good photos are so important. They are the first introduction people have to your products and to me its a vital part of business that I am really enjoying learning about.
🧡This picture is something I was working on yesterday. Its a Mothers Day gift, which will be launched later this week - you're getting a first sneaky peek here 😁

💜Had a busy making day yesterday and fresh batches of these beauties are sitting waiting to go to new homes, to be loved as much as I love making them.
💜BEAUTIFUL Face Cream is for those poor souls who think they can't put anything lovely on their face for fear of a reaction. The only reaction you will get from using this is a positive one. You face will feel soothed, comforted and as though it's been given a new lease of life. Its super gentle.
💜AGEING GRACEFULLY is a gorgeous cream, packed with rejuvenating and regenerating oils that will improve the appearance of your skin almost instantly.
💜The very best thing about these two lovelies is they are 100% natural. No chemicals. No nasties. Just natural, plant based goodness.
🧡Doing an extra postal run today so if you fancy showing your skin some love... Link in bio.

Day 2 #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
🧡I guess for me where my story began was with my love of gardening, my passion for the natural world and a love of all things natural. And then it was just a matter of all those things coming together at a time when I was ready for something new and looking for a creative outlet.
🧡A weekend soap making course at @willowcottage.ie got me hooked about 3 years ago and I literally started making soap straight away. Experience from previously working for the natural cosmetics company @lush kicked in then and I figured I could make something that was just as good, of not better. Lots of fun experimenting and trial & error and here I am, 3 yrs later, having just left my day job at the start of the year to work on my dream full time!!

One of my favourite things to make are one off pieces 😁 This 'Wonky' Lamp was a collaboration with @kaikostudio. A concrete base set off centre so Linda asked me to do a special top for it. I love the way this lamp turned out 😍⁣

Day 1 #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker
💜I'm following this challenge again this year and hope you will enjoy the inside into my world and what I create.
FAVOURITE TO MAKE is today's prompt. Its hard to pick. Its like being asked to choose your favourite child, I just have the one so it's easier 😅
💜For me its soap. I love the unpredictability of it. What my customers see is a perfectly cured bar of gorgeous smelling natural soap but that isnt always how it turns out. Yes, I follow my recipes but factors like weather and different batches of ingredients can affect the outcome. So every time I unmould a new batch of soap there's a moment where I hold my breath and hope for a perfect soap. I like to think there is a little bit of magic that goes into every batch and fortunately the soap fairies are, almost always, on my side😁
🧡You can check out the different soaps I make by following the link in my bio.

💙Gorgeous muscari that are in bloom all over the place at the moment. They are such tiny flowers but for me herald the sign of the seasons moving forward. It gets me excited for the longer, warmer days coming soon!
💙I took a day off today. My good friend @violetshirran came for a visit (check out her gorgeous page and her #myrepairproject) and we righted the world over coffee, tea and a long walk. Well not really but we talked lots...about work, ideas, food, travel, gardening, creativity and the absolute necessity for having people around you that get you! It was the perfect day. Good for the soul 😍

💚Are you trying to reduce your plastic waste this year? 💚Are you worried about the future and what all the plastic waste we are producing means for future generations? 💚Would you like to do your bit and make some changes at home?
💚One of the easiest swaps to make at home is using bars of soap instead of bottles of hand wash and shower gel.
💛I think alot of us remember bars of rock solid, very drying soap from our youth and it puts us off making that change.
💜 My 100% NATURAL AROMATHERAPY cold process soap is made the old fashioned way and is packed full of super skin loving plant based oils and butters. ➡️Link in bio to my shop where you can start making small changes at home to reduce your plastic waste.

💜It's hard to believe that you can get colour like this from the garden at this time if the year!!
💜This is a gorgeous little anemone. They've been popping up all over the garden this week with the milder weather.
💜Makes me excited for the seasons ahead😁😁

🧡Does your lovely soap get all soft and mushy after you use it? Do you have a decent soap dish, with holes, you can sit it on to dry off properly after using?
🧡An alternative is to pop your soap in a wash bag so it can hang to dry after you use it. These are ideal for your shower soap. You can wash with it and then just hang it up to dry.
🧡My wash bags are made with a lovely, soft, 100% bamboo fabric, which is a sustainable fabric and is also anti bacterial and anti microbial, which basically means it won't go mouldy after it gets wet. It will keep you and your soap fresh. And if you use it to wash with your skin gets a gentle exfoliation too😁
