We’re British but now run our crafty family business from our home in Ohio.

Welcome to Hedgehog Hollow!

We are a family crafty blog with anything creative; from card making to scrapbooking; we love to share recipes, home decor ideas and DIY projects too. We have Mr and Mrs HH (Dr. Greg and Alexandra); our two daughters Maddi (12) and Tilly (3). All together we form the Prickle!  We moved to Ohio, USA in November 2016; we also love sharing our new adventure across the pond with you plus of course things from our Births and German heritage.  I also love to sew, bake, knit and crochet; if you can make it I’ll give it a go!  I hope you enjoy being here at the Hollow, we are so grateful for you joining us; we have a Facebook group, Facebook page, Instagram, YouTube, plus you can contact us using the contact the Hollow button above.

Thanks for joining us and we hope to hear from you soon!

Alexandra Stapleton-Smith

Alexandra Stapleton-Smith

Founder and CEO

Alexandra is the boss lady! She started Hedgehog Hollow in 2017 to keep busy and stay out of trouble. Well that didn’t work and what started as a simple blog quickly grew and became a business. When she isn’t busy running the business she loves to try any craft, everything from porcelain doll making to silk painting and teddy-bear making. She’s the mum to our two girls Maddi and Tilly, and tries to keep Greg in check as much as she can. Good luck with that! 

Dr. Gregory Smith

Dr. Gregory Smith

Co-Owner and not-the-CEO

Dr. Greg is the all important tire simulation engineer that every crafting company needs! Greg used his passion for photography to fund his engineering degrees in England by providing event media services for his university. He then brought that experience into Hedgehog Hollow initially being responsible for all the photography and video production before handing this over to our in house Cinematographer and Editor. Since then Greg has focused more on company strategy, organization and generally getting in the way. 

Maddi

Maddi

Star of Maddi Mondays

Maddi is 12 and is our 7th grade superstar.  When she not reading a 600 page novel (complete bookworm here!) she loves planning her next Maddi Monday feature video at Hedgehog Hollow!  Maddi also has an amazing drawing talent for Manga, Anime and Kawaii; she certainly doesn’t get that from Alexandra but the two of them love to sit down and color together.  Maddi is also a big comic book lover and loves the Suicide Squad series, her favorite character is Harley Quinn.

Tilly

Tilly

Chief Cuteness Office CCO

Tilly is our youngest daughter and just loves everything and everyone! When she’s not lounging in the sun she’s usually running about and hugging everybody. She also loves to draw and color.  You will often see Tilly on screen helping with a craft, she loves creating just like her Mum.  Her current favorite medium is stickers!  She also loves baking treats for the office, we particularly enjoy her banana loaf!  Miss Tilly is also a big fan of My Little Pony and she hope to own a pony or unicorn when she grows up.
