So who are we? Well we are Kareena, Tracy and Susan, we’ve known each other and worked together in one way or another for about 15 years. Between us we have 7 daughters, and wouldn’t it be lovely if they took over this little caper one day!!?? We are really good friends, we’re mindful to be the friends we want our daughters to have and to be.
Kareena has never met a new adventure or idea that she didn’t love! Everyone is a friend, everything is a winner. Look up positivity in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of this woman. She wears her heart on her sleeve and is generous beyond measure!
Tracy is kindness personified and she is the woman that you want on board when you’re starting anything! Seriously you half verbalize an idea, just murmur a half formulated wish…..she’s got it ordered, photographed, delivered. Done! She runs towards danger while the rest of us go the other way!!
Susan has an anecdote for every occasion. She has a hundred ideas a minute. She says they’re million dollar ideas…. But she needs Tracy and Kareena to turn them into reality. People tell Susan stuff, she’s a good listener, non judgmental she sees good in everyone. Well almost everyone.
GWM is an amalgam of the initials of our surnames. It’s actually the initials of Gifts With Meaning one of the business names we were toying with. When we realised it was also Gale, Williams and Middleton, we figured it was meant to be! Susan started making candles about 5 years ago, Kareena wanted to make sure it looked good, and Tracy was very keen that it was presented to the world properly and that in a nutshell is GWM. We laugh, we cry, we eat cheese, drink wine and make beautiful things. We are so happy to share our joy with you
