Mumpreneur Feature – Emma Robinson ***Giveaway CLOSED***

giveaway/ Mum in Business
The lovely Emma of Robinson designs is with us also today – See the end of her interview for a fab dicount & giveaway :))
Who are you?
I am Emma, I am 28 a wife, and a mummy to gorgeous girls, Alexandra 2.5yrs and Bethany who is one.


What do you do?

I design personalised photocards for birth announcements, Christening/Baptisms, Birthdays, Weddings, and at the moment Christmas Photocards. I also offer a photo manipulation and photo editing service too.


When did you establish your business?

In 2008 when my first daughter was born I wanted something different to send out as her birth announcements, so designed my own photocards. Although it was only June 2010 I really did something about it and made my online presence.


What made you start your own business?

I like to be different and when my daughter was born I wanted something different to the usual birth announcements, so created my own unique photocard. I also did the same for her Baptism and everyone loved them so much and said I should start selling them. I tried on ebay and did sell a few photocards, but because I was working I never really had a lot of time to do anything about it.
I still work part time, so Robinson Designs is more of a hobby business at the moment.

What do you love about working for yourself?
Being in control about what I can do and when I can do it!


Is there anything you would go back and do differently if you could?

I would have got my business up and running back in June 2008

Finally If there is 1 thing that you could tell other Mums who want to start there own business; what would it be?
There are a lot of talented mums out there, if you have a dream, just follow it and go for it!
All Mummy Loves follows can get themselves 10% off Emma’s photocard prices – just quote MumLove10 valid until 12/12/10

I would also like to add Emma has created and is selling letters from Father Christmas (see website) and £1 of each letter is going to Claire House, a local children’s hospice, so a very good cause!!!
