Welcome to the tenth edition of my Supporting Small Businesses series. Once again, I am back to the roots of this series and supporting an illustrator who sells some wonderful cards and postcards (among other things).
I have followed Moonlight and Hares for a while now, but last week I finally decided to order some cards and postcards. I ordered via Etsy, but you can also order through the Moonlight & Hares website.
The face behind Moonlight and Hares is Karen Davis. Karen is a British artist who is inspired by the magic of the countryside, folklore, hares and forest creatures, as well as the old ghosts of this land, tales from the imagination, the moon and all the threads of light that weave between.
As you can see, Karen’s illustrations are magical. You can just tell that Karen is surrounded by inspiring nature and folklore as she works her magic with her illustrations. I chose a selection of my favourite greeting cards and a pack of postcards, but I could have ordered more as she has many wonderful illustrations to choose from.
Each of the greeting cards came with its own brown envelope and the pack of postcards was tied together with string. My cards were delivered in a cardboard letterbox-sized box, perfectly sized for my order. There is no wasteful packaging to be found in a Moonlight and Hares order and it’s all recyclable too!
Moonlight and Hares currently also sells prints and notebooks, as well as digital downloads of writing paper and journal pages.
I placed my Moonlight and Hares order via Etsy late on Tuesday evening. It was dispatched on Thursday morning and was with me by midday on Friday. I was surprised it arrived so quickly!
These cards and postcards will be going out with letters to various friends and penpals, and I’m sure they will love them as much as I do.
Please note: I bought these greeting cards and postcards with my own money and I am in no way affiliated with Moonlight and Hares.
