Handmade Marathon - Day #23 (ohnorachio!)

Editor's Note:

Welcome to DAY TWENTY THREE of the Handmade Marathon. 

Rachel was one of the first to submit her shop in the Handmade Marathon call for submissions, and I just love her style! She has some great Christmas additions in her shop right now, like this gorgeous hand-illustrated Christmas planner in Rachel's signature style. Be sure to visit!

About ohnorachio!:

‘ohnorachio’ is a little shop filled with handmade goods from illustrated ceramics, notebooks, cards and custom banners  to cute homewares. Each and every item is designed and made by me {Rachel}. I’m a Southampton based illustrator,  crafter and blogger. 

I love to create handmade gifts for my friends and family and it was through my love of homemade  presents that ‘ohnorachio’ came about. The receivers of my gifts and their friends were always telling me that I should sell  my items. I finally decided to give it a go in 2010 and found to my surprise that people did indeed appreciate my talents.  Fuelled by sales and my new found self confidence, I have continued to expand my range and develop many new ideas.  I take great pride in maintaining my shop and sharing what I do with people all over the world. My products are now  stocked in a handful of gallery shops all across the UK - this to me is a real triumph and has given me a great sense of  personal achievement! 

The ohnorachio! blog began as a way to showcase new products and ideas but has since grown into a platform for all of my creative output. I now use it as a space to share recipes, stories, lovely finds from other creatives, and most popular of all, DIYs. I post a new DIY project every Friday, giving readers the option of something quick {usually} and fun to do over their weekend break. These posts are always the most enjoyable to create and really help to keep my creative juices flowing!
