This giveaway is being brought to us by Natasha at The Melting Pot Candle Company!
Let's get this party started with a little questionnaire I had with Natasha!
Tell me about you and your family
My name is Natasha. I am married to a man who was my best friend for 6 years before we married almost 7 years ago! We have 3 great children; Justice our oldest son is 5, Savannah is 2 and Marcus is 1. Our 4th baby is due September 30th! We are both originally from Atlanta and moved to TN for a quieter place just before we married. We now have a mini farm in the works and our children love the outdoors and animals!
Whats your store name and link:
The Melting Pot Candle Co. http://www.themeltingpotcandleco.com/
What do you specialize in?
I specialize in natural wax tarts. Wax tarts go in a burner and are melted. The then release a fragrance making your home smell wonderful! I also have other products such as Aroma beads in sachets for closets, cars or drawers, and new bath and body products in the works!
How did you get started?
I began this company because my favorite tart maker was going to close her business. I didn't find any others I REALLY loved so I bought most of her supplies and began my own!
What do you love about your business?
I LOVE all the fragrances. I love when I get feedback from customers that they enjoyed the products. My goal is to make each and every customer satisfied. It is a great feeling when I see the same customers coming back for more!
What is your favorite product right now?
My favorite current product is the full size tarts in a cup. I love the cup. It makes for great storage and because it is a food grade container it keep s all the scent trapped inside until use. It gives the tarts a much longer shelf life. My favorite current scent is Wild Mountain Honey! Recommended by a great customer, Trish from Do-Hickies & Thing-A-Majigs...yum!
What makes your shop different?
I take extreme pride in each and every product I make. If it isn't right I will not ship it. I make each tart to order so they are fresh when you get them. If for any reason something isn't right I make it so!
What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?

On Hyena Cart:http://hyenacart.com/CrunchyCongo/http://hyenacart.com/TheMeltingPot/
What do you love about handcrafts?
I really think it is important to support other families. I try to buy everything I can from a WAHM or WAHD. It is a great community to support and items are not mass manufactured. Items are made by hand with love and care. That is what I want to bring to my family. I enjoy getting packages in the mail and opening them with the kids. My 5 year old always says who sent us that? I gladly say a great mama in (insert state here). They get a better understanding when I make items and send them to other families. Even better are trades! I love to do trades and I tell the kids. We are going to send this to Jessica at Zing Slings and she is going to make Savannah a skirty. The Skirty arrives and they remember! It is a great lesson in sharing and give and take.
