(The Making House)
Lisa Marie Olson, Entrepreneur and Creative Director designs in all things Lily the Lamb, Alice by Lily, Felt Fairyland, Felt Storyland and Felt Wonderland from the heart of her home studio in the Midlands!
As Seen on TV, “Award Winning” and Voted Best of British are just a few of the highlights of Lisa’s creative life. Her love affair with creative arts started at school with needle work and textile arts. Lisa quickly realised that she had a natural flair and ability to create wonderful things with threads, fabric, ribbons, buttons and left over bits and bobs. After a short time Lisa began making things for family and friends adding finishing touches to a room, such as a roman blind, customising bags and making unique accessories.
The interest in creative pastimes continued into adulthood, where Lisa was able to save money by making and customising not only her wardrobe but home too.
Over the past 35+ years Lisa has continued to develop skills in all areas of creativity, from creating decorative items for the home, up-cycling, paper crafting and felt-making.
Many of Lisa’s designs are created and inspired by an enormous love of classic fairytales and stories such as Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicals of Narnia, The Hobbit, The Grimm Brothers and Dickens. It is the characters and adventures within the pages that jumped out and sparked Lisa’s interest from a very early age. It is those very characters that have inspired her unique Lily the Lamb and Alice by Lily ranges and the adventures that follow them.
Lisa has continued develop her skills further, by producing her designs on to various fabric and making baby clothes
It is Lisa’s goal to continue to develop these and other designs and share the wonderful creations and stories across a wide range of mediums, such as gifts, homewares and most importantly crafting products so that the magic and adventures can be enjoyed by all.
