Meet the Maker

I’m a mum-preuner with some big ideas and a whole lot of engraving enthusiasm that I use to put smiles on people’s faces everyday. I absolutely love what I do, and get a real buzz from the emotions that come from my customers on the products I make for them.

Engraving started off as a therapeutic hobby for me a couple of years ago. I am a Computer Science teacher of 15 years, mum of 2 gorgeous boys, and wife to a charming French carpenter. 

It started with making gifts for friends and family, experimenting with my husbands engraving machine, and off cuts of wood he would other wise throw away. 

I dabbled in craft fairs, and made myself a little website to sell a few pieces, and before I knew it, people were really starting to notice my work, I was completely addicted to taking my machine out with me engraving live in front of my customers at events to create a real ‘wow’ factor. My customers would often be tearful with emotion upon receiving their products (and make me cry too!), and so I carried on.

I can engrave almost anything now, but my absolute passion is with the pieces that come from the ❤️, from baby ultrasound scans 🤰🏻, to family and pet photos👨‍👩‍👧 👫, through to memorial plaques for people remembering their loved ones. 

My family are my absolute world. We live in a little town in Leicestershire, in the heart of the UK. I like growing fruit and veg, Zumba and Pole fitness to keep my body and mind healthy and happy. So that’s me. Hello world, it’s nice to meet you!
