Hello! Welcome to the store...
My crafting and making tendencies were born many years ago, way before Instagram even existed and back when blogging was the cool thing to do. I started out my crafting journey as a scrapbooker and paper crafter, and spent all my spare time making pretty pages to document our life and travels. I was lucky enough to have some of my pages published in various scrapbook magazines and was also a design team member for two crafting supply stores.
After my son was born in 2009 I moved to a smaller size of paper craft and started card making – much easier with a baby! Eventually I decided to learn something new and taught myself to crochet, which as you can imagine opened up a whole new world of supply shopping..
In 2019 I decided it was time to leave my stressful, full time job to try and create a better work life balance and spend more time with my family. Over the next few months I spent lots of time crafting for pleasure, and decided it was time to work on making a business out of the things I love to do.
The name Lemony Pickle comes from a couple of the many nicknames that my son had as a baby – my mum often joked that he would be confused as to what his actual name was!
Lemony Pickle has grown a lot over the last few months with the support of family and friends, and brings an ever evolving portfolio of items both here and hopefully in person at artisan and craft markets in 2021.
