Unicorn Parties 🦄

It’s been a busy beginning to the year and I’ve hosted my first unicorn party of the decade! It was a great success. The guests got to choose from a table covered in joyfully sparkly and bright coloured yarn to create the mane and tail for the unicorns I crocheted by hand. Th...

I'm grateful to have been part of a number of Shannon's Creative Conversations Women's Circles and the Small Business Huddles she hosts. Shannon create spaces that are welcoming, warm and full of ease. They are spaces where Shannon ensures you're safe and held to be exactly who you are and to share (or not) in exactly the way you need to, to honour where you're at. Every time I join anything Shannon hosts I come away feeling more at peace, more balanced and more joyful than I did before going along. Thank you Shannon, you've opened my world to so many new, enriching and nourishing experiences and people. It's always an honour to be part of the spaces you create.

Shannon runs one of the best virtual meet ups I have been to for small business owners called Small Biz Huddle. She has created and hosts such a lovely warm, nurturing and honest space. A place that is so key for us as business owners to come as we are and share what is going on for us and of course, support each other too. Shannon brings so much heart and grace and empathy to everything that she does on top of her amazing talents as a business owner and creator herself. Thank you Shannon.

I met Shannon many years ago at a networking event before covid struck. We have become friends and I have purchased a couple of her lovely crochet makes. Over the years I have watched Shannon’s business grow and she now supports others through creative conversations and the Small business huddle. I also had the pleasure of getting involved with the Small Business Huddle, twice, where she had inadvertently created another online support group which helps promotes other small businesses and also develop new business contacts. Shannon is warm, friendly and amazingly creative with a crochet hook😀.

Reclaim your CREATIVITY!

Mockingbird Makes is unique in that I offer a bespoke service, co-creating alongside my clients (partners, really).   

I, founder Shannon Reed, strongly believe that in society we outsource our creativity too easily, letting ourselves be led by fashion and trends and giving away parts of our identity and individuality, which can slowly, but surely erode our happiness.    

It is my mission to give back that power to everyone I work with thus helping to enrich the lives of the people I meet and inevitably becoming more enriched myself  - it's a selfish endeavour really!    

I do this by creating gorgeous handcrafts to your exact design or teaching you to do this yourself. Whether it be your winter hat or heirloom blanket, pom-pom flowers or favourite cactus, you imagine, Mockingbird  Makes, you enjoy!   

I also speak on Creativity for Wellness and host a nourishing women's ending called Creative Conversations to connect us all with our innate creativity as a means to helping us thrive instead of just surviving.

Email me for any enquiries, to share pictures of your latest makes or just to say hi!
