For my February feature I would love to introduce to you Kaley from Family Doodle Do, who creates these beautiful peg families.
What do you create?
I create personalised peg people and characters. They’re all completely unique, and completely hand painted.
Where did the inspiration come from to start your own business?
It happened by accident really. I originally did illustrations through Family Doodle Doo, but spotted some blank peg people and decided to make some for family. It quickly escalated from there, so I stopped the illustrations and just did peg people.
Which product is your best seller?
Best selling product is the personalised peg families. I’ve done them with just 2 pegs, all the way up to 17 pegs!
What do you enjoy most about being a Mama who makes?
The thing I enjoy the most is seeing and hearing people’s reaction to their pegs, they can just mean so much. I also love the fact I can work my business around family commitments.
What handy tips do you have for other makers?
My top handy tip would be to just keep going, and stick to being you. I know there’s other people that paint peg people, but I’ve crafted my own style, so I just focus on what I’m doing and not others.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about Kayley and her lovely business. You can find her on instagram @familydoodledoo
