so now, let's get to meet tawyna:)

when did you open your business?  
 I originally opened my business in 2005.  I have two Etsy shops The Favor Box and Cupcakemix Favors along with my original website  We started out selling cupcake mixes and then cupcake mixes as party and wedding favors.  Our packaging was very popular and we had many requests for our boxes and labels so we started The Favor Box on etsy. 

how did you come up with your business name? 
The Favor Box was an easy name, I was selling exactly what it says.  We have since expanded our offerings beyond favor boxes, but it still works.

what is the hardest thing about running a home business for you? 
I actually don't run my business from my home (any more).  I started with a home office, then my business took over my garage along with my living room and dining room.  I now have an office and warehouse in Rancho Santa Margarita along with kitchen space I rent in Orange.  I do still work from home a lot at night and on weekends.

in searching for a logo, did you know what you wanted ahead of time or did you just find one you loved and it fit?
 I had been searching for a logo for a while.  I would have had something custom designed but I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted.  When I saw the logo on your site I knew it was exactly what I was searching for:)

if you have a weekend to do anything you want what would you do (and it can not be catch up on work)?
When I have time to do whatever I want, I don't care where I am or what I am doing as long as I am spending time with my family.
thank you tawnya for your business and your generous donation to my readers. now ladies, go like her page and come back to win those boxes for your holiday baked goodies!!!
