For many a new year brings exciting opportunities and new findings. I have had many new followers and customers join me this year so though it would be nice to share a bit of insight into my life and find out all about me and the behind the scenes of my business.
My business is home based on the Sunshine Coast in the lovely Noosa area. I have 2 children 3 & 7 years old. I started my business when I was pregnant with my second daughter. I wanted this time to be different. I wanted something for me to do that was fun and stimulating but still be able to be there for my children. I built on from my hobby just making for friends and family, to customers and adapting and developing products and packaging. I also learnt how to build a website, Facebook page and marketing. My business specialises in natural scented products and doing it in a creative way. For example my soy wax melts I have designed into different shapes such as hearts, stars, butterflies, frogs. I have then packaged them so they are a ready made gift for someone special. The most exciting thing about my business is how much I grow and learn everyday. The technology that helps me along the way is my website, Facebook pages, twitter, photos, Pinterest and I write a weekly blog. It is so much fun having your own business and working around precious family time.
While working on my business myself and a very close friend, who is extremely crafty would go for a walk and coffee once a week. Our discussions were filled with passion and excitement about our crafty talents and our wonderful business ideas. After a while we thought wouldn't it be great if we could talk like this with other like minded people. We are doers so we started Handmade In Noosa. It is a networking group with people who have home based businesses, many of which are craft orientated but not all. It provides a great chance to debrief, share ideas, create events, discuss problems or successes and best of all gives us people to be accountable to, and to keep us motivated and strive for our best.
My name is Natasha and I am the owner & creator of Noosa Melting Moments.
