Mum, wife, business owner, candle queen
If you’d told me a few years ago that by 2021 I’d be a full-time entrepreneur running a thriving candle-making studio from home, I wouldn’t have believed you.
This time last year I was working in my corporate role of 15 years, managing a team of 20 people, commuting every day, missing joyful times with my family.
I still remember the first candle I ever made, and the look of amazement on my husband’s face as he walked through the door and caught the scent.
“What on earth is that amazing smell?”, he said.
And it was at that moment I realised that something I’d handmade could bring a smile to someone’s face.
Through candle making, I can bring people happiness and joy, transport them to another place with the smell of coconut, or bring back precious memories with the warmth of vanilla.
One of my favourite things to do is creating candles for life’s celebrations.
Whether that be a wedding, a baby shower, a birthday or a big family get together, a personalised candle is a unique and meaningful way to say thank you.
It gives me the warm and fuzzies to know that my candles are given as gifts to your favourite people during the most memorable days of your life.
I’m forever grateful to my customers who choose to support a local business and give this mama more time with her babies.
I’m just over here spreading joy one candle at a time.
