The Instagram influencer Mrs Hinch took to social media, ahead of the birth of her second child, to share with fans the latest purchases and gifts for her baby’s nursery.

Included in the items was a wall art print with hanger, created by Oak Studio based in Amble. In the video post Mrs Hinch describes the product as “A beautiful hanging picture from a very small business @oakstudioprints” and comments “How cute is this?”

Oak Studio was setup by mother of two Lindsey Edwards in November 2020, driven by her love of creating personalised printed keepsakes for children. “I’m absolutely overwhelmed by the response. I started the day with 165 Instagram followers and after Mrs Hinch shared my work I gained over 4,000.”

“The traction from the new followers has generated hundreds of messages and comments about my wall art prints, as well as an influx of orders through my Etsy shop.”

Lindsey, who is currently working from her kitchen table whilst caring for her young children continued: “Creating wall art and printed stationery for family and friends has been a love of mine for several years.

“I feel so humbled that people like my creations enough to want to buy them and display them in their homes.”

She added: “I would encourage any women who are thinking about setting up their own small business from home to just go for it!”
