Hi I'm Jessica and I run Crafty Genes.
I set up my business in 2006.
I couldn't choose between my 2 favourite interests so I opted for both and created my business from Crafts & Genealogy!
Recently the craft side has totally take over and is the main part of my business now but I still offer research for those interested.
I originally offered Cross Stitch items that I had designed, hand sewn and framed but other items have started taking over.
I love creating hand burnt wooden items using my pyrography machine. I make plaques with funny, romantic, rude and novelty quotes on plus personalised drinks coasters, keyrings and much more. I have recently added hair scrunchie stands which are made from scratch by myself.
My main passion is my fabric items. These vary from using the fabric to create wreaths and frames to hair accessories and scented items that can be hung up or placed in draws.
My scented ladies are one of my unique items and the reason I was crowned Queen Of Scented Ladies.
I have 4 different ranges. My Lavender Ladies are scented with lavender, Rosie Posie's are scented with rose petals, Spice Sisters are scented with cinnamon, cloves and star anise and are made from Christmas fabrics. Each one made is totally unique. I never make the same one from the same fabric and each has her own name!
My Satin Sweethearts are a little different in that the customer can choose from 25 colours and 2 scents (rose petal or lavender). They are a great idea for bridesmaids, proms, ect!
I love my job and I love creating all unique items especially for you
