About Hello Sweetie

Hi there and welcome to Hello Sweetie,

Thank you stopping by.  I hope you found what you were looking for, and if not, I hope I can help you find it or design it especially for you…

Here is a little bit of background about Laura Jayne and the story behind Hello Sweetie…

I have always had a love for paper and anything creative from the moment I could pick up a pencil and draw. After studying Art & Design at College and Fashion Design at University, I went on to become a Footwear Designer for 10 years. My love for fashion and travel has always heavily influenced my work so I started making handmade cards as a hobby along side working as a full time Footwear Designer. This reminded me of my childhood and my passion for working with paper, so, I wanted to make a change… I think many of us have moments in time where we feel that life has been leading us to a moment (or direction) all along… Hello Sweetie is one of those life transitions for me…

Inspirations & Motivations…

My inspiration comes from life, travel and people. I always feel inspired by what and who is around me. Life is an inspiration! People are in inspiration! I have been lucky enough to travel the world during my time as a Footwear Designer so I was constantly inspired and I continue to take my inspirations forward when designing new products for Hello Sweetie. My passion for design plays a huge part in my life.

How Hello Sweetie started…

The name, Hello Sweetie, comes from myself and my Mum imitating two characters from one of our favourite TV programs; Absolutely Fabulous. My Mum has called me Sweetie for as long as I can remember and every time I receive a greeting card, text message or phone call, from my Mum, she always starts with Hello Sweetie! It then came to me, and I thought, what a great brand name this could be!  It is also a lovely gesture to my Mum and for this reason, Hello Sweetie, was born…
