I'm Holly and I am the founder of Rocks Design. I started my business in 2015 just after having my little boy, Max, now 4. My husband was deployed to Afghanistan at the time.
As well as navigating my way through motherhood, the sleepless nights and teething, the evenings for long and lonely for those six months of Paul being away. The Skype calls were intermittent and i desperately needed to keep my mind busy.
So, my therapy and coping mechanism seemed to be the challenge of creating my own business. So here we are.
My job is to ' Keep your most precious memories alive so you can see them, remember them and enjoy them, everyday, forever '
