Kelly's Story

"The members club has helped me massively, both personally with my confidence and business-wise, as to be honest, I was a bit in the dark about how to go about running a handmade business."

My name is Kelly. I've always loved making things. My favourite things to make are quirky cards and gifts to make people smile.
I have learned so much this year, including how to improve my Instagram page, which has really helped me change my content which has in turn helped my reach. I’m really proud that I took the plunge and that I am still going, even when things aren’t easy.

The dream is that I can build something successful that I can be proud of, and that my family will be proud of me for. I would love for it to become my day job. It has surprised me that I thought I knew the direction I wanted Jackary & Me to go in, but it turns out I didn’t - and I prefer the alternative direction!

Founder: TIlly's Floral Wreaths
"I may not always have the time during the day to watch the lives’ but what great is that they are on the portal for you to catch up on at your leisure.  Whenever I’m wreathing, I always pop on a video from the portal as there is so much to learn"

Hi, I’m Rachelle creator and maker behind Tilly’s Floral Wreaths. 

 Founded: March 2021
I have always loved being creative, during Christmas 2020 a lady from my daughter’s playgroup asked me to make a Christmas wreath for her. I then started to make wreaths for family and friends and dipped my toe into selling these locally to our village community and to my amazement I sold 15 Christmas wreaths and garlands.
So, this year I decided to start my own floral wreath making business, turning my passion into something more which has led me onto to creating floral hair accessories and also running floral workshops too and selling over 100 of my wreaths online.

I've never been a part of something so flexible, so informative, helpful and fun 

It's changed the whole way I think and post on social media and has taught me that I am not too old to learn new things 

Most people need things like coffee or chocolate in their lives......I need an Effie, and I've got one! 

Thanks for everything you do for me/us Effie, long may it continue xxx


I have learnt so much and feel so much more confident about moving forward. The support is wonderful and Effie is always happy to help and give advice which is wonderful. It’s such a lovely community to be part of.


It's a lovely community which to me is invaluable as it can be lonely working on your own. Particularly like the live Q and A sessions. If anyone is unsure I'd say go for it and give it a try

I started following Handmade Association after seeing a motivational quote and to my surprise it was only the cherry on top. I have learnt so much from your videos than I ever thought possible. You have given me the courage to follow my dreams. I am just getting started with cross stitch portraits. There are just not enough words to tell you how thankful and blessed I am for having met you. You are an amazing. Thank you


"I'm at the start of my journey and the masterclasses and challenges have been fantastic learning experiences for me, packed full of so much information. Effie  even made me a video explaining something I needed support with which was so helpful."

I joined at the start when Effie advertised her first 5 day challenge. So glad I decided to join up. I have increased followers - the right kind for my community. I love the wealth of information she has and her approach is very refreshing. I'm so grateful for her offer to check-out my instagram content and offer constructive criticism, its really opened my eyes to how I need to fine tune my content. Absolutely love her and the space she has created for us
