Do freebies add value?

For me the artist’s response to this Sainsbury’s ad speaks volumes!

Does doing work for free really add value to or benefit a sole-trader’s work?
Does working for free encourage others that you are worth paying for a project?
Does working for free put food on the table to feed the kids?

Don’t devalue someone’s work by asking them to give it away for free…


Gotta love some upcycling!

A length of pine fitted with coat hooks…
Cue screw driver, saw, drill, dowel & glue, emulsion wash, knife and hand-cut card stencils, more sawing, a dab of painting then sealed with a clear spray sealant et voila!

If you see something you like or have an idea of something you’d like, why not drop me an email

Make-it Monday

Two pieces of hard wood joined edge to edge with dowel and glue. Brush coated with an emulsion white wash then sanded back. Acrylic lettering using stencils. Finished with a clear spray sealant.
