My name is Laura. As mentioned in the little blurb titled ‘Our Mission’ my family is German but I grew up in Ireland. These days, however, I live in the UK. I moved to Manchester when I met my husband (very romantic, I know!) about 6 years ago and since then we have expanded our family by two boys. Between working, renovating and raising kids I squeezed in a part time degree and every spare hour I had I was hitting the books. All of that changed this year when I finally sat my last exam. Suddenly I had time to get back to some past times I enjoy.
I have to say, I’m a sucker for a craft kit, embroidery, weaving, origami, you name it! But I find it frustrating when I don’t have a use for the finished product or if it doesn’t fit in with the style of my decor at home. My eyes were opened after re-purposing a pair of my son’s ripped leggings into a rattle for the baby; why craft only for the sake of crafting when I can craft and create some personal things for my children? A couple of rattles and teethers later I was still hungry for more. There was a certain satisfaction from finishing a little project in the evening when I normally just use that time to tidy the EXACT SAME MESS that I tidied the evening before. My main problem was finding time to get the materials together. An idea was starting to form…
Fast forward a few months and I had assembled a pile of kits to share my love of crafting with the world. Now all that was left for me to do is see if the world likes them (fingers crossed).
