The Maker




My name is Lily, I'm 8 and this is my small business. I live in South Surrey with my parents Chloe, Sergio and baby sister Ellie. 
 

When Covid19 came I began homeschooling like lots of other children across the world. Alongside homeschooling I took up gymnastics and ice skating. I found learning from books was really hard so needed a more hands-on approach, finding a way to incorporate my daily subjects and learning, together with the values of money into activities - the idea of a business of my own was born. The earning from my business helps fund my gymnastics and ice skating classes. I've worked super hard and I'm now on the team YAY!

It all started with creative minds and my Mama’s love of wax melts I began to learn how to create these myself in various fun shapes using soy wax, different colours and fragrances. I also found out how to make candles, room fragrances and cant wait to figure out more! Ive recently even added more items that I love to make like jewellery too which begun the extension of Lily Lou's Shop! I get to learn Maths, English, Science, IT and Art in making my wax melts and even learning running a website and social media. All my products are hand crafted and individually packed. I get lots of help from my parents, they also help to ensure my safety at all times and to keep myself organized. Truly a family run business but I'm the boss around here haha! I love all aspects of what I do and meeting my awesome customers.

Above all, I am learning life skills and I know that if I set my mind to anything and work hard, I can be successful!
