In the Spotlight: Handmade Love

Tell us a little about the person behind the business?

I am Jeni Pizzi, a 30-year-old mum of 3 gorgeous children, twin girls who are ten and the world’s cheekiest 3 year old and Partner to Greg. I am addicted to all things handmade and juggle kids, a part time job and two businesses–mine and his. There are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. My favourite colours are green and pink and I have an obsession with pretty stationery, peacocks and of course anything handmade.
