Who is Maddie & Me?
So you want to know more about me? You nosey little thing you! Well, I’m Samantha, Mother of three living on the Far North Coast of NSW, Australia with my little family (Hannah 7, Maddie 4 and Billy 1), partner Jim and cat Meowmeow. Maddie & Me was started back in 2016 after the birth of my second daughter, Madilyn. I have always been a creative soul and when I discovered my love of making teething toys, this soon became my full time job.
With Safety as my number one priority here at Maddie & Me, I invest in having my designs Independently Tested to the corresponding Safety Standard. I also love educating my customers and new business owners on what to look out for when purchasing toys for their babies. You’ll find some Safety Highlights on my Instagram account.
My life isn’t exactly a fascinating one, but people seem to love to follow along on my daily journey of real life motherhood and musings. I love to show the reality of motherhood and working from home. Not everything is picture perfect, and people love to know they are not alone. I hate cleaning but it is a daily struggle with three kids that mess is inevitable.
I pride myself on creating quality handmade products. Each beaded item is made with care and attention to detail by my hands. I strive to exceed my customers expectations and hope to create that special unique piece for their baby to cherish. My products are made with A Grade quality materials and I will not compromise quality for profit.
My business has grown over the years and this year I am wanting to hand pick products that compliment my store. As my youngest baby, Billy grows into a toddler, I know that a lot of my customers also have their babies growing into toddlers too. It has been a natural transition to discover new products and brands to stock that I know my customers will need.
Thank you for supporting me. Whether it is through purchasing from my store, sending me a direct message or sharing your lives with me. It’s been an honest dream come true creating this business and community.
