I’m a former elementary school teacher with a deep appreciation for wine. Years ago I started creating candles out of the interesting bottles as gifts and for decoration. I wanted to preserve the creativity of the labels while also reusing the glass, rather than simply recycling the bottles.
After 5 years of teaching, I left the classroom to begin a new adventure. With some help from my parents who also supply me with (empty) bottles, and my wonderful husband who has been so loving, patient, and supportive, I am excited to be selling my candles.
“Wine time” was something my mom and neighbor began as a way of decompressing from a long day. This name reminds me of the friendship, care, and, of course, wine, that is enjoyed among friends and family.
When I’m not making wine bottle candles or working on my business, I tutor and substitute teach. Its a lot of fun to work with students, without the stress of being a full-time teacher. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my husband, family, and friends. I love wine tasting, cooking, running, and taking barre classes.
