About me


I'm so flattered that you want to learn more about who's behind Penguins & Pineapples. Well, that's me! Femke (pronounced like; Fem-ka). I'm a daughter, a wife, a mom AND the owner of Penguins & Pineapples!

Penguins & Pineapples was created in July of 2016, after we started trying for our first little one, with the thought in mind that I would love to be a stay-at-home mom. I love creating and designing so this was the perfect creative outlet for me. 

We were lucky to welcome our son Harvey into the world of June 2017, and our daughter, Emmy in June 2019 (you will see them every now and then on product photos!), and I now am proud to say that I am a stay-at-home mom! Or better said.. A work-at-home mom. I kind of try to do it all.. and that doesn't always goes as planned, but I am totally ok with that. 

Why Penguins & Pineapples? Well.. I don't really have anything else to say besides the fact that I love Penguins.. and Pineapples.. So that was a decision that was made very quickly.

My dream is to retire my husband so he can help with my shop, and I am working really hard to make that dream come true! 

**Update! In the summer of 2020 I was able to retire my husband, and now we manage this business together!! 

I hope I kind of gave you an inside in my life. I always enjoy reading something about the one I'm purchasing from, and I hope you enjoyed reading this too!
