hey there!

I'M LUCY...

the artist and creator behind Blossom & Friday.  

 

I design and handcraft heirloom dolls, many of which I'm thrilled to say are scattered around the world being treasured by children and adults alike.

I work from a little home studio in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside and when I'm not running around after my three children I love to create, sew and paint.

The Beginning...

HOW BLOSSOM AND FRIDAY STARTED 

Blossom and Friday was born from a desire to learn a new skill.  I had always wanted to learn to sew but didn't really have the confidence to believe I would be any good.  I threw myself into learning anyway and found that I loved everything about it.  I also realised that I could do things my way and create what I wanted.

I knew I wanted to share my journey along the way and so needed a name for this project.  I chose 'Blossom & Friday' because Spring is my absolute favourite time of year when our little orchard is full of apple blossoms and as my youngest child was at nursery on fridays, that was the day I set aside to learn and create.

My goal is simple

What does creative success look like to you?  For me, it's having the freedom to design, imagine and make as well as having the mental space and energy to do that with joy.  It also means running a business that brings financial abundance AND fits around my busy life.

Having different facets to my business enables me to sustain this model.  Creating streams of passive income has been a game-changer in this respect.  Just a handful of digital patterns online have made the world of difference in freeing up my time and allowing my business to grow.

The cherry on top of all of this is being able to share everything I have learned with like-minded creative people.  I am grateful for that every day!
