Hello & Welcome,
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my Website, grab a cuppa and I’ll tell you a bit about myself.
My Babies, My Business & My Blog!
I set up my Online Craft Business jesterdesign in October 2013, while on maternity leave from my Bank job. I had a beautiful baby girl and started creating soft baby headbands for her. People seemed interested in my Headbands so I set up a Facebook Page to sell them alongside my hand painted personalised jute tote bags, wooden gifts and box frames.
I had my gorgeous son 15 months after my daughter and it was while I was on maternity leave for the second time, I decided to give up my permanent secure job and take a chance on building my own business from home.
In November 2016 I set up my Blog – Jessica Loves – sharing my love of Crafts, Interiors and Fashion with a bit of family life in between and am very lucky to have won multiple awards since.
My Retail Shop
In April 2017 I opened up my first Retail Gift Shop & Creative Workshop Studio on North Main Street, Youghal, Co. Cork, rebranding from jesterdesign to Jessica Loves. However, after a tough 2 years in Retail, I had to make the difficult decision to close my pretty Shop and move my Business back to Online exclusively.
In 2017, Jessica Loves was nominated for a Cork Business Award for Cork Small Business of the Year and was shortlisted for Best Craft Blog at the Amara Interior Blog Awards in London. Jessica Loves received the Silver Award in the Corporate Arts & Crafts Category at the V by Very Irish Blog Awards in Dublin and also took home the Gloria Vanderbilt Award at the Hi Style Awards in Cork.
In 2018, Jessica Loves was again nominated for a Cork Business Award, Hi Style Award, Amara Interior Blog Award and won the Silver Award in the Corporate Arts & Crafts Category at the Irish Blog Awards.
In 2019 and 2020, Jessica Loves was nominated again for a Cork Business Award for the 4th year running.
TV & Media
Jessica Loves has featured in various media publications – Youghal News, East Cork Journal, Evening Echo, Hi Magazine, Artisan Magazine and the Chill Insurance Winter Home Interiors eMagazine.
I have appeared on Live TV on numerous occasions; as a Craft Contributor on Virgin Media’s Ireland:am and as a Fashion Model on RTE’s Today Show.
I am taking a step back from creating my Hand Crafted Gifts to free up my time and continue my studies in Interior Design and Marketing. I will be launching my new Interior Styling and Home Organisation Services this year and if you like, you can keep up to date on my new Instagram Interiors page here.
So that’s me! If you would like to get in touch or have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
