Our Story

Doodles and Swirls was 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, till I thought, hey, maybe people would like to buy some of this stuff?! and so, Doodles and Swirls Designs was created.

I’m loving growing my brand and my business, and I hope to continue to grow and build!
