Jules, of this is Jules on Instagram, was probably one of the first Instagrammers I followed who had a beautifully curated feed.

I am delighted this week to welcome Naomi Bulger to my blog as part of my new series of posts about the stories behind the Instagram accounts.
Naomi's feed is one of my favourites. She's a writer and illustrator and her feed is littered with her beautifully drawn pictures on envelopes that she posts out into the world. Naomi also illustrates stationery for Boots Paper and has a course for people interested in the gentle art of letter writing.
