First off, thanks for visiting. Knowing that people are exploring my shop and (hopefully) enjoying what they see, means a lot to me.
Etc. started out in March this year. I had just been made redundant from my job as a Regional Marketing Manager. It came as a huge surprise to me and was a difficult thing to get my head around.
For a few days, I searched around, looking at job descriptions similar to what I was used to, and I just thought 'I cant do this anymore'. With the encouragement from my family, I started to think about what I really wanted to do. Inspired by creative sellers on instagram and etsy, I realised - that could be me too. I could be one of those people that I loved to follow. That was all it took.
Before I knew it, I had a computer, a printer and a head full of ideas.
I started dabbling in candle making, designing my own labels, choosing the scents. I realise now that this is so much more than a job. It's a passion and a lifestyle. Happy to report that so far, I'm enjoying every second of it.
Inspiration is all around, and I plan to use this inspiration to continue to evolve my products.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any personalised requests you would like me to consider. Do you have a favourite quote you would like to see materialised in print? Send it across and i'll bring it to life.
Every item in this store is handmade, and that's how it will stay. This is my vision and my responsibility to you all.
I hope you enjoy what you see and come back for more!
