Me and My Cricut

As you may have noticed we started out in highly scents soy wax melts! But we have a little more on the website now. We have taken the time and perfected our process on wax melts, and expanded into gifts.

For Christmas like many others, I got a Cricut and I was instantly in LOVE! I had been watching so many Youtube tutorials, especially Mr Crafty Pants and felt like I was already a professional. What they do not show you in tutorials… is how many times you will get it wrong before you get it right! Starting with design space.

Alas after much perfecting, a solid 100 hours put in to the process – we had out personalised keyrings, which we then went one better with and introduced the resin coating, so they will last even longer. This then came with it’s own minor issues, but we fixed it and now have a fabulous product.

After much more time with the cricut we now have our fabulous Spotify plaques, which honestly are my favourite things to make! I get to spend so much time with my Cricut, from Cricut design space, to the Cricut cutting process it’s self, to the application. It is also so satisfying taking an idea and making a beautiful product – it starting as a blank piece of acrylic, a sheet of vinyl and a digital image. Like baking a cake, we take all these ingredients and make the perfect personalised product for absolutely anyone, why it is for anyone? Because EVERYTHING about the product is personalised!

But we aren’t stopping there! We have so many beautiful products coming for Mother’s Day. So keep and eye out on all of the wonderful makes, from My Cricut and I, made especially just for you!

New Website

Initially when Time To Twinkle first started, we primarily traded via our facebook page and through our facebook group. As we (and our product list) grew, it became clear that we needed to launch a website to help people find the exact wax melts they’re looking for. In Mid 2020 we launched the Time To Twinkle website through Square Up, our payment provider. This allowed us to streamline our ordering process, as well as take card payments in person at events.

We then noticed that we very quickly outgrew yet another platform and in early December 2020, we decided that we needed to expand our web presence once again. The driving factor behind this was to continue to provide the best possible service and best possible user experience.

Product Categories

We wanted people to be able to easily find what they were looking for, and further categorise our products. Not everyone knows exactly what they’re looking for when they’re searching for wax melts, and we feel that by introducing categories people will find exactly what they’re looking for much easier! So far we’ve implemented the following categories

Trust Pilot

In an effort to continue providing the best possible customer service and hear what our wonderful customers think about our products and services, we’ve registered with Trust Pilot. This will allow our new customers to buy with confidence, and our existing customers to keep us updated on how we’re doing. We believe that in order to provide the best customer service you always need to be learning and increasing efficiency wherever possible. We also believe that Trust Pilot will help us do just that.

Bugs / Comments / Feedback

Obviously when launching a new website, it’s inevitable that there may be some bugs or areas of the site that need improvement. That’s why we’d love to hear from you. You can contact us via our Facebook Page to let us know how we’re doing.
