Lets start blogging

Hi there! If you don’t know me already I’m Leah, as in ‘made by Leah’, and this is my little corner of the internet. I’m pretty new to this designer life (and blogging) and have been in a whirlwind since I set up business in Summer 2016.


Since setting up, I’ve moved into my brand new studio complete with printers, all the storage you could ever need (although I won’t speak too soon) and every paint colour out there. There’s also plenty of workspace to house all the decorated cakes ready to be sent off to their new homes.

My studio is a converted double garage (thanks to Mum and Dad, the unsung heroes of made by Leah) and I couldn’t be more in love. It’s very cold in there, but does anyone need an excuse to wear a dressing gown to work?

I had (unrealistic) dreams of blogging every week since setting up my website in November 2016 but here I am 6 months later writing my first one. That’s life eh.

So, from now on I am going to share every BIG thing on here! Kind of like a diary.


I forgot to tell you all about the success of Top Drawer SS17, the trade show I went to in January and have been busy from ever since! For those of you that have never been to a trade show, they are huge events where small and large businesses (and everything in-between) showcase their products for buyers to have a look at and potentially place orders. They are huge and scary, but amazing, and I have booked onto another one in July- Harrogate home and gift show- and will tell you all about that one when it comes along.


I feel so lucky to have a job that I love. I hope some of the things I do can make people happy too. Please do have a look through my website. And take a look at some pictures of my studio! I promise to write again very soon.
