Tell us a little bit about yourself 

My name is Gemma, I'm 31 and a proud full time mother of two - an energetic almost 3 year old boy & a busy 11 month old girl. After growing up in Christchurch, battling through the earthquakes and working in the property management and real estate industry for almost 10 years, I made the move to Timaru to live with my partner and soon after started a family! 

Tell us a little bit about Small Things Decor

I started my business in 2016 when my son was 6 months old. I felt like I needed a hobby for myself so I started making some small home decor items and selling to friends. I enjoyed it so much, I decided to start a Facebook page too see what the public thought of my creations. 

After finding it difficult to buy quality wooden decor for my son's room in the colours that I was after, I realised that this was something I could do myself! The main product I sold at the start was the personalised name blocks which are by far still my most popular product. 

What is your favourite part of running your own business? 

I love bringing my own ideas and also my customers ideas to life! There's nothing more rewarding than receiving lovely feedback about an item that has been purchased from me. 

Being my own boss and having the flexibility to work the hours to suit my family is amazing too. Most of the time I get my work done when my children are fast asleep. 

What is your favourite product that you make? 

I love all of the products I make but especially the personalised name blocks which are made to order for customers. Seeing their colour combination choices and names come together is awesome. I'm also a huge fan of anything pretty!! 

What is one thing you do daily to make your business work? 

I try to post regular updates and photos on social media and keep engagement up with followers as much as possible. I strive to provide great customer service to my customers and create items that I'm proud of. 

Where to from here with Small Things Decor? 

I have recently been part of my first expo day and looking at attending a lot more public events over upcoming months. 

I'm planning to launch a new website and possibly a little side venture catering to general home decor & gifts (you've heard it here first!)
