Today I would like to introduce you to a lovely small business called Rocket and Rose, I've chatted with Gemma the owner for a while now on Instagram, she works hard and is an inspiration to the small business world and I am amazed at how much she does.

Running an online business selling clothing is difficult enough, I should know having run one. But making personalised items is a whole different ball game, her items are beautiful and can be custom made to your requirements.

From birthday to race for life t-shirts, mugs to canvases, she does it all, here is a little about why Gemma does what she does.
"My idea for Rocket & Rose started back in November 2011. My twin girls were very tiny and whilst they napped I started designing tutus and outfits for them and for family and friends. I decided to venture into boys fashion and my ideas and drawing and practise outfits and clothing items soon escalated into the wonderful world of Rocket & Rose and here we are now!
I design and create all the items you can see on the Rocket & Rose website whilst still raising my gorgeous Twinklies. I am a part time working Mum and Wife, hence why there is a short waiting list for my items - but I have been assured they are worth the wait!
I studied fashion and textiles at the Kent Institute of Art and Design, followed by a degree in Theatre Costume Design for the Performing Arts at the London College of Fashion, so I am delighted to be able to use my skills more than 15 years later in a career that I absolutely adore.
Along with my husband, Dan we run the business from a lovely workshop in the heart of the Devon countryside."
I hope you’ll agree she is a pretty amazing lady, not only does she run this business she also has three young children too.
Finally she has offered a brilliant competition prize, one lucky person will win a £25 voucher to spend on the Rocket and Rose website. So whether it is something for your little one to dress up in or some goodies for a birthday or Christmas there is something for everyone.
