1. How Sweet Boxes By Naye come to be?
Two years ago I was wanting to start a small business. I would love making something for me, something for fun while I could stay at home with my 9 month old baby. So I was staring to seeing so much tutorials of chocolate covered treats on tiktok and decided to give it a try. I would never think I would have found my passion. It’s been a wonderful journey. The name “Sweet boxes by Naye” is because I wanted to sell treat boxes full of sweet things.
