Who are you?
My Name is Leanne Carr
What do you do?
I design and create unique personalised keepsakes to cherish those important times in your life.
When did you establish your business?
Made4keepsake was established after the birth of my son in August 2012.
What made you start your own business?
After getting married in 2011 and then experiencing the most incredible feeling of becoming a mummy I want to share my unique keepsakes with others who were too experiencing those important milestones. After spending several years in the fashion Industry I decided to put my creative flare to use While I was pregnant and I started creating unique prints for my son’s nursery . Once he arrived he inspired me even more to make and create heartfelt gifts that others can treasure forever as well as precious keepsakes.
What do you love about working for yourself?
I love designing special gifts and keepsakes that are so well received. The gifts I design and create mean so much to the person who’s receiving it. It’s so rewarding and such a privilege to be apart of creating such cherished keepsakes that I know bring so many wonderful and treasured memories to the customer.
Is there anything you do not like about working for yourself?
My mind is always on the business even at 4 o’clock in the morning.
Is there anything you would go back and do differently if you could?
You are always learning and I wouldn’t change a thing as you need to make mistakes to ensure you learn from them.
What advice would you give to a Mum considering starting her own business?
Being a mum is your number one job – anything else comes second.
It’s all about setting tasks and time management.
