This week on Mumpreneur Monday I am delighted to introduce Kim from Lots of Lowe design. Kim creates personalised gifts to make people smile! Designing everything from custom gifts, wall art, stationary, invitations and logos.
Kim is a wife and mum of two beautiful children, a crazy 2 year old toddler and an 8 month old. They live in Buckinghamshire with their two dogs.
Kim's interest in design started many years ago in school. Kim and her dad would spend hours at the dining room table, painting and crafting. He would help her to enter design competitions. She went on to study art as an A-Level. She completed an Art Foundation course at College and then went on to do a degree in Graphic Design at a University in Manchester.
Kim spent 9 years working within the graphic’s industry, working in varied jobs designing around the UK. Whenever she had a few hours to herself she would design gifts for people as presents. She has designed wedding presents, christening and birthday presents, She is constantly thinking of new and creative ways to put memories onto paper. She is also asked to design logos, invitations and anything creative.
Whilst Kim was pregnant with her second baby, she was in the process of moving house, and she was trying to think of creative ways to add decor to her new home and to the children’s nurseries, so she began designing for herself outside of her day to day work designing, when she got a minute here and there.
After she had given birth, she thought why not sell the prints and open a little online shop? At this point she had no idea how to run a business, so she spent months researching, and in October 2017 she bravely decided to take the plunge. This was when “Lots Of Lowe Design” was born! After being open for 4 months Kim hit 200 sales! Kim says she couldn’t be prouder. Each personalised print is individual and unique and she takes great pride in seeing people’s happy reviews and comments on her page.
Kim was kind enough to send me three of her wonderful prints and I absolutely love them. She sent a family welly print which is just gorgeous. This is going to be framed and put in our hallway so guests can see it when they come over.
She also sent me a good night sleep tight print to go above Marley's bed which is super cute and matches the colours in his room. My favourite piece of artwork would have to be the “he is a little bit of sunshine mixed with a hurricane” print! This one is ALL Felix! She could not be more spot on and it makes me smile every time I look at it.
Kim's artwork is beautifully thought out and the quality is excellent. I have my eye on lots of her other products. Art work can bring such joy to a house and I love having prints that are unique and pretty. Kim's designs definitely offer that.
I am extremely proud to be working with this determined, positive mama. She is a fantastic Mumpreneur and I am absolutely sure that her business will continue to blossom over the next year.
I would love you to go and show her some love over on her Facebook (Lots of Lowe design - @LotsOfLoweDesign) and Instagram pages (@lotsoflowedesign) and be sure to have a browse at her products whilst you are there!
