What does your ultimate indulgent weekend look like?  
It would definitely start with a sleep in, anything past 9am would be bliss. A nice sunny day, with no chores and an endless supply of sweets and desserts. 

Paint the scene for us - what can you see from your office window? 
I wish I could say that when I look out I can see trees and some beautiful country scenery but it is a room that is to the side of the house so not much more than some trees and a fence. 

When did you launch your business? 
I started my business purely as a hobby back in 2008 then after my son was born in 2010 I decided to go full time with my business so I could stay at home with my two little ones.

What were some of the challenges you faced in starting out? 
Trying to figure out exactly what direction I was going in. It's easy to get caught up in making bits of everything. I originally started with just small bags but now I offer a whole range of travel accessories. 

What do you love about running your business? 
The freedom to be my own boss and to be in control of my own destiny. I love being able to wake up every morning being able to do something that I love and am so passionate about. 

What would you like someone receiving your product to know? 
That every piece was made 100% by me with love and care!
