Hello my name is Jessica Power, I’m a crafty busy mama to two toddlers Eva & Ben and wife to Eoghan. We live in Youghal by the sea in East Cork.

I set up my online craft business jesterdesign on the 22nd October 2013, while on maternity leave with my first baby.  I started making soft baby headbands, personalised jute tote bags, hand painted wooden gifts and box frames.

I had my second baby 15 months after my first and it was then that I decided to give up my permanent secure job and take the chance on my own business full time.

On the 15th November 2016 I set up a Craft, Interior & Lifestyle Blog called Jessica Diaries where I share my passion for Crafts, Interiors, Reloved DIY Projects and a bit of family life in between.

On the 15th April 2017 I opened up my first Retail Store – Jessica Loves Gifts & Homewares at 105 North Main Street, Youghal, Co. Cork and rebranded from jesterdesign to Jessica Loves.

In October 2017, I hope to open my second premises – Jessica Loves Studio at Tuscany House, 92 North Main Street, Youghal, Co. Cork offering Reloved Furniture Sales, Furniture Painting Workshops together with a whole host of other Fun Creative Workshops.

My hope is to inspire you all to #reloveyourhomes by taking on those DIY Projects and decorating your homes with all the #lovelyprettythings I personally source and make available to you (okay and to me too!!) through my Gift Shop.

I’m so thankful to all of my customers for keeping me in my dream job and I now can’t wait for Mondays!

If you would like to read more about my business journey, grab a cuppa and head over to my first ever blog post!
