DAY 1. Y O U
#marchmeetthemaker I'm Monique, I'm 32 and live in York with my two little people aged 4 and 2, my husband and our mad cocker spaniel. I'm a graphic designer by day, and last year ventured into the #smallbusiness world by creating #monochrome cards and prints of my thoughts as a mum to #toddlers as well as setting up a Photobooth - @boothomatic_uk

Some strange things you might not know about me...
• I've lived in over 21 houses so I've stopped counting. • I was an extremely fussy eater until the age of 22. I would literally only eat chicken chips and beans, peanut butter or ham sandwiches, NO butter and salt and vinegar crisps. With an unhealthy obsession with #ketchup! No joke, my parents hated me! • I love collecting things, I keep things for sentimental reasons, so I can look back age 80 and remember I went to the cinema in 2011! • My friends call me Monza or Monkey and I love that. • I have an obsession with all shades of blue and ampersands. I never have enough money in my bank account for this. • I'm really bad at washing off my makeup at night, I've become a mum that has no time for herself! • I love 80's and 90's music, and I've only recently discovered GIN. Where have I been?! #marchmeetthemaker #meandmyampersand #sleepdeprived #mumoftwo #graphicdesigner #kids #toilethumour #ketchup #aboutme #designer #fussyeater #parentingfails #iloveeighties #monkey #monza #nicknames

I made these tshirts for my hen do over 6 years ago and they still look great and bring back amazing memories! I even wore this giving birth! TMI?!

Today is a good day. I’ve woken up, and had a shower without my children awake! This never happens. I never make the alarm before I hear “mummmmmmy, I’ve done a poo!” I feel AMAZING!

You’re not nineteen forever pull yourself together! 
My favourite #courteeners song ever. Perfect for when I need to have a word with myself to #pullmyselftogether

Feeling back to front and all over the place at the moment.

How has everyone else’s January’s started? With a bang, raring to go and loads of ideas? Or disappointingly, taken a few steps backwards and wondering where your motivation is?! This is my eldest, he makes me laugh and is often where I get all my ideas! #mumoftwo #kids #parentingfails #toddlers #toddlertruth #smallbizshiz #smallbusiness #shopsmall #cards #prints #graphicdesigner #babies #newmum #mumlife #kidsdothefunniestthings #meandmyampersand #etsyseller #etsyteamyorkuk #etsyuk #teamyork #madeinyorkshire #madeinyork

I’ve got such a busy day ahead, but my dog knows exactly what I need before I can pull myself together. Massive cuddles.
