This week on Mumpreneur Monday I am delighted to introduce Chantel from Kent-Made. Chantel makes custom made wooden gifts for every occasion.
Chantel has two young children. She wanted to spend as much time as possible with them but she also had a burning desire to get back to work. With the help of her husband they decided she would start up a business from home that she could grow to something full time by the time the kids were in school. Chantel has always had a passion for wood, and so she decided to create custom made gifts that would last forever!
Chantel knew it was going to be risky starting a small business and not going back to work where she knew she would have a guaranteed income. She wanted a flexible working environment so that she could still spend time with her children and be able to call call the shots on her own business. So far it's been a great journey for Chantel and she is positive that Kent-Made will continue to grow as time goes on.
Chantel was kind enough to send my boys a name plaque for their bedroom. As many of you know Marley and Felix moved into the same room in the Autumn. We originally had separate name plaques in their rooms so it was really lovely to receive something that was custom made for both of them. I absolutely love the simplicity of it. It goes with their room beautifully. The plaque is obviously made with such love which is a major selling point for me.
I have been looking through the Kent Made website and I know that I am going to be a regular customer there. These mumpreneur Mondays could start getting a bit expensive for me! Chantel has some beautiful mothers day gifts on her site so its well worth checking those out along with wedding gifts, personalised postcards and a variety of kids room plaques.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Kent made and I am sure that the business is going to blossom over the next year. To browse all the wonderful products that Chantel has made please click here.
