Thank you so much for popping by and having a little peek at my handmade fabric letters, gifts and home decor.
This is me, Louise! Mum of 3 little boys aged 8, 6 and 4 (this photo is from a few years ago, when Peony and Grace was in its infancy and I was spinning lots of plates … and children!!). These munchkins and my hubby, are my world and my reason for making the scary decision to leave my career as a lawyer in 2015 and start Peony and Grace.
As much as I enjoyed being a lawyer (please don’t hold this against me, I’m nice, honest ), I badly wanted to do something more flexible to enable me to spend time with my boys during their precious early years.
I’ve always been a “maker”.
In my Uni days, when money was tight, I’d make myself clothes and jewellery, and when Paddy and I set up our first home, I loved adding that personal touch by making our curtains, blinds and cushions.
It was whilst on maternity leave with my second child that I wanted to create a feature for his bedroom wall using fabric to match the curtains and bedding. A trip to Hobbycraft later and that evening, the fabric letters were born. The first were atrocious and swiftly binned but after a few attempts I’d cracked it and I loved how they looked on the boys’ walls.
I started making the letters as newborn gifts for friends and was overwhelmed by their reactions to them, and orders from friends came in. So I made the huge decision to leave my job and set up Peony & Grace…and it’s been amazing!!
My aim with Peony and Grace is to make what I hope are treasured, unique, handmade gifts for you, your friends and loved ones.
To create something that puts a smile on someone’s face is the most amazing feeling and I feel extremely lucky to do a job that I love whilst also spending time at home with my boys.
I really hope you enjoy browsing through my shop!!
Much love, Louise xx
