All my life, I've been encouraged to be creative. My mum could outbake Mary Berry, and my dad could probably build a rocket if he wanted to. Growing up, the house has always been filled with glue guns, sequins, recipe books, Lego, pens, pencils, and even soldering irons and pyrography pens! Whatever my sister and I wanted to try, we were given the tools and encouragement, and it's instilled a lifelong love of creating. 

Family and friends have nudged to me share what I make, but there were always nagging doubts that held me back. It took the passing of a very dear person to make me realise I needed to block them out and just go for it, so I started designing my very first range of fun stationery pieces for people to own and enjoy.

I'm smiling and holding a selection of my prints and letter sets

That brings us to today, when I share those designs with the world and officially declare the WhatLydDid shop open for business! I'm so, so proud of my wares, and I hope you'll love them too. There are some cute prints for all your blog prop needs, and letter writing sets for when a tweet just won't cut it. I'm planning to add one more of each per week, and I'm all ears for suggestions of what you would like to see next.

It is UK only at the moment, just while I get the hang of it and become best mates with the postman, but if all goes well I will expand to delivering to more countries. Any support, whether that's a purchase, retweet, or telling your neighbour, is very much appreciated!

You can find the shop on Etsy by searching WhatLydDid, or just click here to head over and have a nosey. I hope you love what you see!



  1. This is amazing! I love when people use their talents and open an Etsy store- it's the best thing I ever did. I absolutely love your designs- they inspire me to get more colourful! :)

  2. Your stuff is so cute Lyd! I'll definitely be putting an order in at some point

  3. So made up for you Lyd and your new venture. I love everything you stock in your shop and can't wait to crack open the writing set I ordered (I'm saving it for E's birthday).

    If you ever think of doing bespoke prints, I'd love something to add to our nursery :)
