“If I’m happier, my whole family is happier.”


This working mom truth is from Mom in T.O. Lesley Pocklington, the creative force behind Swell Made Co., the paper and gift company she created after becoming a mom.

The Ontario native has some deep Alberta roots. (She and her husband met in Edmonton, went east to New Brunswick, then eventually moved to Toronto.) The mom of two now calls The Beach home.
