Hello! Welcome to Junk and Glitter. My name is Sophie, and I’m the designer and writer behind all you see here.
After having my first daughter Matilda in 2015, I created Junk and Glitter as a creative outlet and a way to work flexibly. I’d often thought about doing something creative, and I’ve always had a good eye for colour and design. But this was my chance to really learn how to do brush lettering and put together gorgeous designs.
I’m a perfectionist, and it’s taken me a while to hone my style and how I like to work, but I love creating designs for busy mums and creatives like me, and to tell me story of everyday beauty while working for myself with two beautiful daughters.
I set up Junk and Glitter with a little shop while on maternity leave and was quickly chosen to illustrate the cover of Fourth Trimester Magazine (who I love!) and asked by Mollie Makes to create their pull-out feature for an issue.
These days, my designs are mostly available as digital downloads and limited edition hoops so that I can concentrate on telling the stories and behind-the-scenes life here at home.
I’ve been so lucky to receive brilliant support from friends, family, and my customers, and I’m so excited to be entering a new phase of the business. Isn’t life so often about looking forward to the next phase?!
I hope you’ll follow along on my journey. Please get in touch if you’d like to talk about collaborations, designs, or just to say hello.
