Supplier Spotlight - ItsAMumsThing

The first supplier spotlight of the year! As you know as and when I purchase new products, come accross something new or a supplier contacts me to do a review for them, I aim to share this with you in the form of a Wednesday Supplier Spotlight feature.

So today I am featuring Megan Stanbury who trades on Etsy under the name ItsAMumsThing. Megan approached me towards the end of last year and asked if I could review her dashboards and feature her on the blog. I will let Megan do the introductions in her own words:

I am a bubbly, coffee drinking, dog loving, sweet treat loving, red haired mum to a beautiful baby boy. I live at home with my fiance, dog and son. I spend most of my time crafting, creating, taking photos and spending time with the people I love. I spent the last 2 years at high school focusing on art and studied for a year and a half at college studying art and design so I have always loved art.
I have also loved organising and planking my life. I am always writing lists and then writing list of the lists I have just written. I never really knew how I could combine the both until I found the filofax community and starting making dashboards. I started ItsAMumsThing as a stay at home mum I needed to find something to fill my spare time while doing something I loved and this was a perfect fit.

So as you can see Megan creates dashboards using her own art. I have four to show you today but you can see more over on Megan's Etsy Shop.

The first dashboard that Megan sent me has to be my favourite and you can see why....

Yes it is a bunny. Who would have guessed that I like bunnies! Her artwork is so sweet, I just love the expression on her face, very cute indeed and I love those eye lashes. Being owned by four girly bunnies I do love the eyelashes! I can't tell whether this is a reproduction of one of her artworks or the original but you can tell that it is hand created as you can see the pen marks so you know you are not buying something mass produced.

The next dashboard is a letter filigree in black and white. Very classic and chic, doesn't it look great in the nude original Filofax! This piece is very detailed, I don't know how she has the patience for it, I sure as heck don't, I am a smack paint down and move it around kind of girl so I really do appreciate the time taken to create this.  Very classy look to the front of your planner I think. Again you can see the pen marks so you know this has been hand created.

As you know when I review anything I always give you my honest opinion as that is only fair and square. Unfortunately the next two are not to my taste but that doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with the dashboards themselves, just that I am not drawn to this particular design but I can appreciate the work that has gone into it nonetheless.

So overall what do I think? Very nice dashboards of a quality that I would expect and is inline with others that I have purchased or seen elsewhere so I would be happy to purchase these and to reccommend them. I am not sure what the artwork was created on but you can see some ripples. This appears to be on the artwork itself and not a bubble. You can best see this on the two heart dashboards above.

  1. Lovely. As I use a Franklin Covey Compact (4.25" x 6.75", same ring positioning as FF Personal), if she would do a custom size, they would be very tempting. That bunny is so adorable.
