Dottie Designs - How it all began....

Welcome to Dottie Designs! I work in my seaside studio in the South of England.

I spent over 20 years in the Armed Forces so came into my creative being in my 30's!

In 2005 I started making cards! I'm a perfectionist and I found it really hard to find that perfect card with the "just right" wording, so I started making them! Then I started selling them on line and in 12 shops! I loved making cards but it was never going to feed my children!

In 2008 I moved into making gifts which is where I am now! I love the fact that something I make will not only be used at a special occasion but will also be treasured for years as a keepsake.

I live 5 minutes walk from the beach which makes me very lucky and that's often where I head for inspiration (and also for ice cream!)

In 2011 I was thrilled to win Theo Paphitis (from Dragon's Den) Small Business Sunday award. I have since lost 6 stone in weight but am very proud of this photo!
