A bit about Being Truly Me

Hello, I'm Charlotte, Founder of Being Truly Me.

Being Truly Me was founded in 2017 starting life as a blog, to document the discovery of finding all the things that made my soul smile, hence the name.

Since then it has been a winding road to get to where I am now, making and creating beautiful, quirky handcrafted, painted and illustrated cards.

Making and creating has now become a part of daily life and Being Truly Me’s purpose is to encourage and inspire you to always be truly you. 

By enabling you to send a card that has been beautifully crafted and reflects your own passion and interests.  Or if you’re a business customer, by blending my quirky style with your brand design and values to create unforgettable cards to enhance your customers experience. 

Thank you for stopping by and if you would like to follow more behind the scenes stories, and be the first to hear what’s launching in the shop sign up to receive letters from ‘yours truly’ direct to your inbox here.
