Meet the Maker
Hello all you wonderful wax melt lovers – you have found about us which means you have found our wonderful Time to Twinkle website. Perhaps I should tell you a little bit about the company and the founders. On the left hand side you have me, the maker behind Time to Twinkle. I am Rachel, a 26 year old. I am originally from a little town called Randalstown, Co Antrim but I currently reside in the beautiful, cultured city of Liverpool, UK. Aside from making wonderful wax melts, I am a full time Business Development manager for a new construction firm. So… now you know a little bit about me, how did we get to making wax melts.
In the year of 2020, (yes you guessed it, another Lockdown start up) I was furloughed in March from the position I was in at that time – now I cannot sit still, so being furloughed was a no go for me! I had to do something. As I was spending more time in the house I was burning more and more paraffin candles. I have always loved candles and a certain wax tart but there never quite last long enough for the prices.
I decided, after watching a few YouTube tutorials of course, I would try to make my own purely for me and my fiancé (he comes in to our story a little later). Honestly, they were pretty darn good and were exactly what I was aiming for. I sent a few to my family and friends as little care packages – and the feedback was great! After a little fine tuning and a few requests, we had a hobby business – I will point out at this stage, I LOVE MAKING WAX MELTS!
Fast forward 8 months, and a new addition (Chase our Golden Retriever), and we are out doing stalls! Thanks to word of mouth our little business is thriving and we have a website. Now our website was a basic one, a template if you like. Now I said my fiancé would come in to the story, or more my ‘Knight in Shining Armour’ I should say. Davey has been my biggest supporter since day dot, whether it was set up costs, ideas or just testing feedback, he has been incredible and deserves a raise! After discovering a few issues, bugs and limitation with our template website – we decided to build a new website from the ground up (he is a software developer, and a very good one). In one weekend we created this little site.
So there you have it – we took something we loved, tried to make it a little better and here we are!
