Mawes & Merryn is 1 year old today! And this is where it started, learning how to make candles with old baby food jars! This was one of my first attempts and first photos on my sparkling new Instagram account. It's been such a rollercoaster of a year, high parts, low parts, educational parts, and the amount of people I've met through doing this has been amazing.
I've had support in the most surprising of places!
A huge thanks has to go to @avamayaromas
, when I started I messaged so many candle companies asking for advice on certain things and she was one of the only people willing to help and tell me her secrets, not only that but as she became more successful she didn't forget about me, she actually made me part of two wonderful collaborations to help me get followers and even now her and her partner @cleaningwithjames
still help, advise and share my products. There's no way Mawes & Merryn would be where it is today without them - thank you guys 💙
Another proud moment for me was my collaboration with @cornishware
, I almost fell off my chair when that happened 😂 and their gorgeous products have helped me create some of my favourite photos.
Another account who has inspired me since day one is @beccaincornwall
- lots of you comment on my photos and really like them, but lots of my inspiration has come from her account... She takes the most beautiful photos and I have to thank her 💙
Gosh I wish I could tag all the accounts and people who have helped, inspired and collaborated and bought and shared my products but it would seriously take all day..some are Local, some are from the rest of the UK and some are even from abroad! Instagram is one amazing place sometimes.
Mawes & Merryn is still growing though, there's so much I want to do with it and so many more products I would like to bring out.. Im constantly trying to improve and always trying to make sure I'm sending my lovely customers perfect products 💙
If you managed to read this long winded and babbling caption then well done! 😂 And I thank you for your patience!!!
Have a lovely weekend all xxxx
