Hi! I’m Laura – 

Creative Lifestyle Advocate

As a passonate Designer/Maker with journalism, marketing and social media training, I offer a wide range of unique support services for creative businesses in the UK and around the globe.

After studying at University and going on a global adventure (that’s fancy speak for a couple of years backpacking!) I pulled together all my writing know-how and squashed it in with a healthy portion of passion, to work in editorial in the beautiful, exciting and creative sector of craft journalism – working as the editor of the leading trade publication and then moving on to launch a fashion forward sewing magazine. After nearly a decade, (I know, I barely look old enough, right?) I decided to step out into the big wide world and launch my own creative lifestyle business.


Happily for me, I’ve been pretty busy ever since! Working in a variety of supportive & consultancy roles for major crafts brands in the both UK and beyond. Including demonstrating products, designing to brief, creating new product launch campaigns, developing social media strategies and writing editorial copy & press releases, creating illustrations & lettering projects to brief alongside styling & photographing craft products and makes.

One of my proudest achievements is becoming a prolific craft author, working with a highly respected publisher to create a growing collection of contemporary craft titles published around the world, in a numerous languages – you can find out more about my Books here.

Outside of running my creative lifestyle business –Made Peachy, I love to spend time with my sweet little family. Our adorable Border Terrier – Waffle – encourages our love of the great outdoors with long beach walks and country hikes.
