My name is Lauren, I am 26 years old and I live in York with my husband and our 4 guinea pigs. I studied to be a primary school teacher at university, but it has taken a back seat and at the moment the day job is flexible! Currently I am working in a nursery school to pay the bills and still get crafting time!
I started up as a papercutter in December 2012, after receiving a Paper Panda trainee kit for Christmas that year. I donned my little badge and, while I wasn’t perfect – far from it, in fact! – I took to it pretty well. Circles have never been my friend!
I created my first piece on request in January, as a gift for a workmate, and it spiraled from there! Lovingly Crafted by Lauren was officially born in February 2013 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. I have a speciality in creating pieces for weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions, but I will never shy away from a challenge! Don’t be afraid to contact me to see if I can make you the piece you’re looking for!
