I'm extra excited about this Shop Small Saturday because it is the first collaboration with someone outside of the state! I am all about shopping local but it's also nice to find other small shops in your region to support. This particular shop is based in Maryland so if you're local to her you should check the shop out at local pop-up shops! Otherwise, continue reading to learn more about Meekly Yours and where you can purchase her work no matter where you're located.
Katie, the owner and designer for Meekly Yours studied graphic design in college but took a job in print project management. I think we can all relate to taking a job when needed that may not be everything we dreamed of! She originally started Meekly Yours as a creative outlet and has received encouragement from the local community. This is such a great reason to start a craft!
Katie has a bright, whimsical look for her products. She specializes in hand lettering cards and paper goods but has recently started with wood products as well. I think we all know about my love of wood products at this point! The sign she sent me is so cute, with the quote "Love at Home"! I of course, wanted to build a gallery wall around it at the entrance of my home. She loves custom commissioned pieces and I already have a million ideas! How cute would the one above be in a nursery with a frame around it?!
Katie truly loves helping take a client's great idea and make it a reality. She says that seeing their excitement with the finished work is priceless. Other commissioned work she has done is branding, invitations, custom greeting cards, and custom wood signs. She's always willing to stretch her creative muscles so feel free to ask her for other projects you may have in mind!
If you're local to Maryland, you can find her work at craft markets throughout MD and DC. If you're not local (like me) you can find her work on Etsy and on her personal website. Finally, if you're like me and love following these shops on Instagram, you can find her here.
Know of another maker that should be featured? Let me know! I love discovering new shops!
