Mummy's little helper: Leona says her daughter Elyssa inspired the name of her new venture

A young mum has begun offering craft sessions to youngsters after her daughter’s friends were intrigued by her creative hobby.

Leona Greenwood has always given homemade gifts to friends, but it was her own mum who spotted the business potential after granddaughter Elyssa’s friends wanted to join in.

The LovEllie’s junior crafter group was born, and runs in Tring on Saturdays. Children can make gifts including hand-painted mugs and bedroom door signs.

Psychology graduate Leona, 26, works in infant mental health. She said: “I’ve always wanted to work from home, and I love working with children.” For information and to book, call Leona on 07740 301216 or email leona.sascha@gmail.com.
