Hi, my name is Rachel and I love being creative.
I started my little business around the end of September 2017, after the birth of my beautiful son, Charlie.
I have always loved books and was an avid reader from an early age.
My two favourite children’s books whose magic still stays with me to this day are The Adventures of Mr O’Dear and The Voyage of the Poppykettle.
Mr O’Dear is a very special book for me and the inside cover of my copy is personalised and signed by Mr O’Dear himself!
My mum insisted that we took very good care of it and it lived in her special cupboard to keep it safe.
We only read it together and it felt so special every time we did.
The Voyage of the Poppykettle was read to me in Primary school and was followed by an excursion to the Poppykettle fountain in Geelong, which signified the landing of the little Peruvian people.
This is what made me believe in the magic of books as I thought if the fountain existed in real life, then the book must be true!
When my husband (who is also a big reader) and I found out I was pregnant, I knew we had to share our love of books and the special memories you create from them with our little one!
I couldn't wait to start the nursery but realised I didn't know anything about the little person growing inside of me.....the pressure of getting it perfect.
After some thought we decided on a Dr Seuss theme, as the books are cheerful, clever and quirky - everything we hoped our son would be.
In the hunt for Dr Seuss, we found there was limited bedroom decor available for little boys, so I decided to create my own and personalise it - hence my wooden letters made of story books and ‘Walls of Stories’ was born!
A Melbourne based business offering a unique and personal way to decorate your nursery or child's room, choose your favourite children's book to design personalised wooden letters for your little one.
I hope you love our letters as much as I’ve loved creating them for you!
