I think I've always had the making bug; my lovely mum was always trying different crafts and loved passing those skills on, so I suspect my creative side comes from her!
Pepin Design only really got off the ground because I have two gorgeous friends who took me under their wings at one of their craft markets and let me share their stall at one of the first Shop Me Pretty evenings in Christchurch. I became hooked on the market vibe and have since become a bit of a regular on the market scene in Christchurch.
I'm a part time teacher, so Pepin Design is juggled around the days I don’t work. If I’m not teaching, I start the day by dropping kids to school, making a good coffee, and then cranking up the music while I work. I have a very patient husband and two gorgeous children who make fantastic Pepin packaging employees when needed during the busier times of the year.
