I gained my degree in Graphic Design from Bath School of Art in 2003 and worked for a couple of design companies and magazines after graduating. I always dreamed of working for myself and of being more 'hands-on' with my creating, so decided to go for it and open Storeyshop when I left my last 'proper' full-time job and moved from London to the Northumbrian countryside in 2007. I'm now a new mum and living in Yorkshire so life has changed lots but I still love cutting and running my little shop.

Storeyshop was always destined to come about one day as there is only so much room in one house for handmade goodies and only so many handmade cards you can make for your friends and relatives!

YOU CHOOSE
As you can probably see from my shop, apart from being handmade, all Storeyshop items can be personalised too. Cards can have the message you really want and show the recipient that it was intended especially and only for them.
