A Little Bit About JJ & Roo!
Welcome to JJ & Roo Designs!
In 2010 I started making & selling handmade cards & wedding stationery alongside my full time job at a local college. After the birth of my son in 2011 I used some of my (many) sleepless nights to develop my "hobby" into a small "kitchen table" business, and opening a shop on Ebay.
By 2014, after my daughter was born, the business had started to give me a small but steady income, and my full time job was limiting my time with my two small children, so I decided that "the time was now" and left my day job to concentrate on raising my little people, and growing my business to allow me to work around them....so JJ & Roo was born!
I went through a couple of business name ideas, until I came up with "JJ & Roo" - which was created using the nicknames of my two best ever creations...my son & daughter!
In 2016 I opened my first shop on Etsy, and in 2019 I launched my own website.
I have loved designing & creating new items in my home based studio on the Kent coast, & am always adding new items to my collections
In March 2022 I decided to "move out of home" & into a larger business premises, which will hopefully allow me to offer lots more items & services in the future
