JOURNALING - STATIONERY - ART & CRAFTS
WHAT IS MYGREENCOW?
I'm Daisy (Hi!), a full time creative from the UK.
I have a love for all things crafty, and MyGreenCow is where I share everything from my current stationery favourites, to process videos on my creative journals. I'm always up for giving any arty/crafty hobbies a go, and often talk about them on my social media platforms.
I get to work alongside some of my favourite stationery & craft brands regularly, to create content using their products. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the the creative community, and have met so many brilliantly talented people along the way!
I have a Patreon where I create & share exclusive monthly content for other creatives to use in their projects. Since going full time with MyGreenCow, I've been able to open my online shop and create products using my own artwork & crafty skills. Having a shop is something I enjoy a lot, putting together little packages of happy mail for people is such a therapeutic process for me.
WHERE DID MYGREENCOW BEGIN?
Back in Summer 2014 I became slightly obsessed with planners, and found the creative/crafty community on Instagram! I've ALWAYS been obsessed with stationery, and crafting, so fell into this online community head first.
That August I set up my YouTube channel, and started making videos about all the creative and crafty things I got up to. It started out with my Smash Book, then planners, some stationery hauls here and there, and now I just post whatever crafty or creative things I fancy.
Since then I've been running MyGreenCow alongside my Patreon & shop, which makes up my full time self employment.
HOW DID THE NAME 'MYGREENCOW' COME ABOUT?
I'm always asked where the name 'MyGreenCow' came from. It was actually the name of my YouTube channel before I used it for sharing my creative ventures, so wasn't chosen specifically for this. But the 'cow' part is relevant because I'm a farmers daughter, I have a large farming background in my family, and have lived a large chunk of my life on a farm. Then the 'MyGreen' part was just aesthetically pleasing to me. I did try other colours before going with 'Green', but none of them appealed to me.
