About UkCraftingMemories

Sales 2,016
On Etsy since 2017

I started Crafting Memories after taking redundancy from my day job. I was taking time off enjoying being a mum to my wonderful children as I had only previously had short maternity leaves. Due to living off the redundancy money I wanted to make it last as long as possible so I started making items for birthday and Christmas gifts to save me money. That was when my family and friends who received these gifts started telling me I should start a business. That was when Crafting Memories was born.

I had no idea about self employment as had recently came out of a job where I had been there 10.5 years so I only knew the world of being an employee. So the first thing I did was pop into my local job centre and this is where I started going to see a self employed work coach who helped me with registering as self employed and getting business insurance etc. I then purchased a desk from Ikea and set up my little workshop in my dining room of my house. However after 2 years I had more equipment than the room could handle and so I needed more space so I decided to look at renting a commercial workspace. This is where I now work from, a rented office space in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

I love being able to work around my children and my husband as apart from school we do all the childcare ourselves which can be difficult so being self employed really helps with being able to work round them.

I also really do love making items you are proud to display in your home or to wear. There is nothing I love more than receiving photos from happy customers with their item on display or them wearing their item.

I also love creating custom items and one off items by making your ideas come to life. No idea is too silly, too big or too small. I love that customers put their trust in me to make their ideas come alive.

Working on orders doesn't feel like I'm working. Someone once told me to find work in something you love doing and you will never work a day in your life and that is so true.

Thank you for taking the time to read my little story

Frequently asked questions
Can I alter a design? I like a product but would like something else printing on the item

Of course you can. We print all our items in house ourselves and so we can change colours, wording and pictures printed. As long as the design your looking for does not breach any copyright laws.

I would like something printing you do not have in your listings is this possible?

Of course. We always welcome customers ideas. In fact we love to bring our customers ideas to life

I need my item urgently. Is this possible?

Our workload can be busy at peak times however we will always do our best to meet your needs so if you need an order processing urgently please message us first with the following details:

The item you are looking to order
The sizes if applicable
The print colour/style
The date you require the item for
Where in the world you are

This information will allow us to check our stock and check if we are able to meet your needs with postal services to your destination

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of our items come packaged in tissue paper. Most of our items get shipped in cardboard boxes that can be reused or recycled. However we do still use a small amount of plastic packaging bags where we feel your item is better protected in plastic to prevent it from the elements on it's way to you
