After many months of umm-ing and arr-ing I have decided to take the plunge and dive into the world of blogging (not a great choice of words there, for anyone who has seen me dive its not so much Tom Daley, more of a bellyflop but I'm hoping that my writing skills aren't as bad!!).
I will be sharing tips, stories, behind the scenes pictures and information along with an inspirational quote or two!
So a little bit about myself and how this little online shop came to be...
I'm Denise, a 30 something designer, maker, dreamer, believer and tea over with a weird addiction to buying socks, scarf's and stationery.
Heart and Home Gift Shop started in 2014 as a little boutique shop in Kent selling homeware and shabby chic gifts. I soon realised that my passion was in making and designing products rather than selling mass produced items so I decided to move the shop completely online, created a website and set about making a collection of personalised gifts starting with the 'Family Story' pictures. I now make a wide range of products including the very popular Baby Scan Photo plaques from my studio in East Sussex.
The last 4 years have been a whirlwind and I have learnt a lot along the way, I couldn't be more proud of what my little business has become and how much has been achieved. None of this would be possible without my amazing customers. It's still strange to think that some of my creations are at home in many different countries around the world including Australia, America, Canada and even Afghanistan.
All of the products that you see on the website are handmade (by me!) and I pride myself on being able to offer unique, high quality keepsakes that will last for many years to come!
I hope you enjoy having a look around the website, feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about the products :)
