Hello! I’m Charlotte the hand behind By Charlie’s Hand!...

The reaction to every single piece so far on social media has been incredible. It has really reignited a fire and passion for this work.

Today’s blog is all about my top tips for maintaining the passion for your craft business long term! Pixiecraft has been...
