Mama to 2 girls, Charlotte Grace & Amelie Hope
I started With Hope and Grace in the December of 2016.
After my youngest daughter, Amelie, was born with a critical Congenital Heart Defect (CHD), I looked for cute apparel to celebrate her and her special heart but couldn’t find exactly what I was after, so I decided to create it myself. Over the years living in Georgia, I created countless CHD related designs, custom designs and was able to do a number of fundraisers for various heart families as well as my own fundraising for our beloved Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, who took such amazing care of us. Through With Hope and Grace, I became connected to so many amazing families across the world and we built such a sweet little community.
As the years passed and Amelie thrived, we were able to provide hope to so many families who were walking through their own hard times. She is now almost 3 and a half and doing wonderfully.
In 2018, I expanded my designs to include modern, inspirational and uplifting designs celebrating kindness, the chaos of motherhood and this crazy thing we call life.
2019 saw the girls and I make a massive sea change and move back to my home here in Sydney. Although the transition has been much more challenging than I anticipated, I know it was the right move. And that brings me to now.... now the girls and I are settled in our #chickpad, Charlotte has settled into school life, Amelie is a feisty little threenager and I am ready to pour again into With Hope and Grace.
New country, new market, new challenges but the same passion. I am so excited to launch my Threadless shop, where I can still design myself but offer an expanded range of inventory including things like bags, stickers, magnets, blankets, prints, notebooks and more as well as our beloved tees AND ship worldwide.
I am hoping to not only be able to provide financial stability for the girls and I, but to make them proud of their mama.
Why is CHD Awareness so important to me? Quite simply put, awareness leads to increased funding, which leads to increased research which leads to hope. Hope for a cure for CHD.
