Hi, I'm Stacey, the Mama behind the illustrations. Lover of stripes, songs by Sublime and eater of many, many chocolate biscuits!
I started Awesome Mama whilst on maternity leave after having my son Fox. Previously I ran a paper cutting business but spending months on one piece just didn't fit with having a new baby. And so like all parents, I adapted. That's what we do best right? Or try our hardest to anyway!
Being a new Mum I never wanted to miss a moment and so, like ever other parent, I've been merrily filling up my phone storage with endless photos of my baby.
But I wanted more than just a photo. I wanted to capture the moment through illustration too. Something that won't just sit in my phone, or if you're a bit old school like me, in physical photo form, sat in it's paper packet getting dusty in a drawer. I wanted something to hang proudly on my wall, that I could look at over the years and remember how tiny our baby once was. The crazy hair do he had, the annoying toys that he loved and how in that moment we were doing something so special. We were helping to form our boy as an invidual in his own right.
That's what Awesome Mama is all about. Capturing moments and treasured memories. It's about celebrating YOU as parents, even when you feel like you're failing miserably, it's to remind you that you're doing your best and that's just awesome!
