Back to the drawing board

Six months ago, Marie Elizabeth Edwards joined the Girls Around Town to talk about helping local businesses stand out from the crowd by designing and producing bold and beautiful signage for them.

It’s back to the drawing board this weekend when she’s in the studio again to tell Rosalyn and Rachel a little more about how she turned a hobby into a thriving business of her own.

And how, through a range of other creations Made By Mee, she brings a uniquely personal touch to special celebrations such as weddings, christenings and Christmas…

On her previous visit to Radio Newark, Marie was about to host the first meeting of a new local branch of the Mums in Business Association. Since then, the group has gone from strength to strength and she’ll have news of the events that have taken place so far and, of course, what’s next on the agenda for working mothers in area.

And there’s more! Last month, she was a member of Carrie’s Babes, one of 27 teams taking part in the Dragon Boat Festival here in Newark. Find out how the babes prepared for the big event, how things went for them on the day – and above all, how delighted they were to be crowned top team on the sponsorship front, raising over £1,700 for two of Newark’s best-loved charities!

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday to hear what Marie has to say about what’s obviously been a very busy year so far…

From bakes to makes

Two for the price of one again this weekend – as the first guest leaves the studio, another arrives for the second hour of the show…

Ever wondered who’s behind those bold and beautiful menu blackboards in your favourite coffee shop or restaurant? Or tried to find someone to custom-make a sign for a special occasion of your own?

Well, chances are at least some of those blackboards were Made By Mee – aka Marie Elizabeth Edwards, who’ll be talking to June and Rachel about her passion for creating freehand works of art that help make businesses stand out from the crowd.

And describing how her flair for design can add a personal touch to everything from the countdown to holidays and Christmas to weddings, christenings and home decor.

Given that Marie will be chatting to the Girls Around Town on Mothering Sunday, the other news she has to share is particularly appropriate.

As coordinator for the Newark branch of the Mums In Business Association, she’ll be hosting the group’s first event on Thursday 11 April, from 10am to 12 noon at the Roman Way on Lincoln Road.

Tune in or listen online from11am on Sunday to find out more about MIBA, an international community with almost 32,000 members worldwide, and what’s in store for Marie’s fellow MIBs at next month’s launch.

Tickets for the first meeting are already available online – if you’re a busy working mum, this child-friendly networking group could be just what you’ve been looking for!
