About Me

Hi I’m Carli, wife and proud mother of my 2 little monkeys McKenzie and Maddison…… hence “Mac & Maddy”

From leaving college with my qualifications in design and display I always knew that I wanted to do something creative and not your average 9-5 job. I was always trying new and different projects like picture framing, card making, a bit of beaded jewellery and did even make some silver wedding bands for my dear mum who is no longer with us. I always loved to re-design and decorate our houses too, this used to drive my husband mad! But now I have settled down and love our beautiful house in a little village in Bedfordshire.

I have worked for two big retail chains in visual merchandising and window display and was able to be a bit creative within these roles but had to do those horrible hours and horrible journeys yuk ! Then my first bundle of joy came along in 2007 and I really did not want to go back to that, and actually found that it wasn’t worth me going back.

I was lucky to have a few years off and in May 2010 was when my life changed with the finding of Victoria from the keepsake company. My friend and I then set up MacnMollie and had an amazing 5 and a half years growing and learning so many things. In 2014 I had my second little monster which changed my world again…for the good! and in 2016 was when I set up Mac & Maddy, so looking forward to a new chapter.

I love going to work every day now and being able to create such personal pieces for people to treasure …..can’t get much more rewarding than that!

Enjoy browsing round my website and please get in touch for any advice or ideas you may have.
