As you read my first blog post, it was a quick recap of the Facebook Live and some big announcements. For this post, I want to talk about the story behind MelissaMarieTX.
As some of you may know this was originally my social media name, just something I came up with in middle school and it stuck with me. Melissa Marie is my name and of course where I'm from, Texas.
I like to stay busy so after graduating from college, working full time just wasn't enough for me so I started to make acrylic keychains and ornaments (holiday season of 2019). I was a vendor for craft shows and markets met lots of people and had TONS of fun. I wanted to do more, something that can help others and all-around something interesting.
January 2019, I ordered my first candle making set and soap making set. LET ME TELL YOU! I'm a little girly and the scents had me falling in love! I Started buying supplies left and right, giving things to family and friends until someone asked me why I’m not selling my products. Initially, I was scared. I wasn't sure if everyone or really if anyone would like my products. I took a chance and did my first show in March. I sold well. Everyone loved it! From there it took off.
Recently my site was down for two weeks, preparing for the Fall reveal but also because I was shifting the focus of MelissaMarieTX. I want my shop to be a place where people can surround themselves with products that will help them feel good, starting with the things around them. I started to surround myself with positive people, positive activities, anything positive and I started to see a major difference. I want to help others learn that it’s okay to make mistakes, it’s okay to not be perfect, but it’s not okay to surround yourself with negativity or things that make you feel down. GLOW! RELAX! MelissaMarieTX is here to help 😊
Thank you again for supporting and remember, you gotta nourish in order to flourish!
