My name is Jemma. I live on a small rural block in Mercer, North Waikato. I am married to a total spunk, Troy! We have two mini’s - Penny, who’s 3 and Harry is 5. We also have another baby brewing who will join us in February 2022. We have a few fur babies! A dog - Molly, who is 10 and two adopted cats Rex & Raptor!
How did Home & Harry come about?
I was beyond excited about becoming a mum, but as Harry got a bit older I missed the hustle and bustle of working life. I trained as a Primary School Teacher, but felt I couldn’t give teaching and being a mum what they both needed. So... I started by creating my own planner to organise my life. I enlisted the help of a local print company to print and bind my creations. For 3 years my job was to design the journals, match the customisation, then pack and send your orders.
At the start of 2021 the growth of my side husle had become a good 4 day a week job. I decided I could take over the whole operation from home. I hired a small commercial printer from a local company and I haven’t looked back. I purchased a binder and hired Trish, my right hand. Trish works when she’s needed and is an absolute asset to Home & Harry. We can now offer an extensive range and have more oversight over turn around times and quality control.
I have grown a niche in Teaching and Early Childhood Planners. I love what I do and have such a beautiful, inspirational clientele. I couldn't do what I do, without the help of you all!I am always keen to hear your feedback and constructive ideas to continually improve the look and functionality of our journals! I love what I do and look forward to creating your planning dreams!
