It's Time for Another Giveaway!

It's time for another great giveaway here at MyKindaRain!

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.

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?
The Melting Pot Products are sold at the main site:

On Hyena Cart:

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.

What are some of your favorite online shops?
The Crunchy Congo (
Zing Slings (
The Spotted Box (
T & Little S Designs (

So many wonderful scents to choose from and I love this kind of stuff. I would definitely try Amber Romance, Fresh Cut Roses, and McIntosh Apple. They are so reasonably priced too, you could pretty much buy every scent you'd like to try. Thanks for sharing this company with us Lori :o)
