Trim the wick

I’m Amelia, and I love making candles. It all started when I was given a kit as a gift. I loved the process so much that I decided to make my own candles.
I soon realized that I had a real talent for it. Before long, my friends and family were asking me to make candles for them too. Word spread, and soon I was inundated with orders.
I love the creativity that goes into making each candle unique. And I love the satisfaction of knowing that people are using something I made with my own hands.
