A little about me...

My name is Melinda and I am the face behind Here We Go Loopy Lou. I am somewhere in my 30s (!). I live in Melbourne, Australia. I am a social worker by profession. For the moment, I have decided to stay home with the 3 wonderful little men in my life aged 5, 3 and 1 years old. Like everyone, my days are jam packed, but I wouldn’t have it any other way right now!

Why Here We Go Loopy Lou?! It is simply something that sounds catchy, fresh and fun to me. As a child, my parents called me Lindy Lou. For some reason, my husband of 11 years decided that Loopy Lou was more fitting! So Here We Go Loopy Lou seemed like a great name for a new business venture.

Here We Go Loopy Lou specialises in handmade fabric stationery. I started the business in June 2009. I became increasingly frustrated trying to find Birthday Cards for little ones that weren’t mass produced or covered in licensed products. I decided to experiment with some of the beautiful fabrics I had in my stash, and my business has just grown from there. I would say that I have a slight addiction to fabric! I am always amazed at all the wonderful designs, patterns and colours available and the endless possibilities fabric creates. I love how a beautiful fabric can transform a greeting card into something so unique and worthy of being a keepsake.
