I have always been creative and enjoyed making and designing. I love a wide range of crafts including card making, knitting, crochet and found a love for sewing in 2013 when i started making pretty dresses for my little one.There is something satisfying in being able to say "i made that."
I took a break whilst i attended university from 2016-2020 whilst i completed a degree in Speech and language therapy. I came out of university straight into the Coronavisus lockdown. My face painting business (www.foxyfacesfacepainting.co.uk) effectively shut down and i suddenly had all this free time on my hands.
My now not so little one leaves first school to start middle school and as she had missed transition days and was absent from school i wanted to help mark the event and she loves her teddies so made her a school uniform, guinea pig keepsake. I posted this on my facebook page and the business really grew from the interest i had from that.
I love seeing peoples faces when they see the finished keepsake. I try to showcase features of the clothing and make something that reflects the love that people have for these items and the memories they generate. i hate the repetition of doing the same thing over and over but with memory bears and keepsakes they are all so unique.
