Creative Businesses

Starting your own business is hard, even more so in the creative sectors where purchases are often unfairly seen as excesses and money is at a premium. That’s why we want to do what little we can, helping to shine a light on those trying to carve a path for themselves, be they editors or those offering writing support services, or those in the wider creative sector, artists and YouTubers and Etsy shop owners and more.

Below is a list of creative ventures we’re happy to share with you. If you’d like to advertise with us too (each and every advert you see on this page was 100% free, and will stay so), information of how to go about this is at the bottom of the bottom.

*A little disclaimer: while we’re happy to share info for these businesses and creative ventures, we’re not actively endorsing any of them. This is for a variety of reasons; for many of the team, for example, we’ll be advertising businesses ran by friends, and so, because we’re unable to offer unbiased endorsements, we’re choosing not to endorse any of them.*

Sprinkles and Stitches


The Doorstep Dolls came into the world during the first lockdown, delivered to people’s doorsteps to bring some joy safely. From iconic women to mini me dolls, they are an escape, a reminder of greatness and a mirror image. Every child should be able to see themselves in dolls; and Sprinkles & Stitches offers that with the Doorstep Dolls.
