My name is Jade Williams & as of Dec 2017 I am the owner of Scruff Candy. I thought I'd take some time to share a little about myself so you can get to know the lady behind the business.
I'm 25 years old & a mum of 2 cheeky monkeys. Ruby is 3.5 years old & Oliver is 6 months old. My partner is Wayne & we're currently engaged to be married in a couple months (eek so exciting but also terrifying! So much to do!)
I've pretty much lived in Roxby Downs my entire life. Moving here when I was 3 & only leaving for a short time for boarding school. Finishing up year 12 here & not knowing what I wanted to do with myself career wise, it was inevitable that I would end up working out at the nearby mine, BHP Olympic Dam. Straight out of high school I started my job as a Mine Design Technician. Basically, I produce all of the designs & paperwork required for most of the things built underground, from roads to holes drilled & more. I am still employed in this role over 7 years later but currently on maternity leave after having Ollie.
I am a bit of a busy bee & jack of all trades as I've also got a small local business repairing iPhones & iPads. I know, I'm aware I'm absolutely crazy for juggling every thing on top of family, friends & other things that I do for fun. But I get it done. It helps that I'm an obsessive planner & organiser!
My little humans are the light of my life & my biggest success. They drive my passion for Scruff Candy every day. Mostly because they're my little models & I love buying new pieces for them!
Ruby is a typical 3 year old. She's loud, obnoxious, rough as guts, hilarious & so smart. She's also a bit of a tomboy. Don't get me wrong, she loves her baby dolls, a bit of pink & a pretty dress for a special occasion but most of the time she's out in the dirt playing with her trucks & race cars. I have a love/hate relationship with her sassy attitude. I love the way she stands her own in any situation but I hate the sass she gives me. We're going to butt heads when she's a teenager, I can already tell!
Oliver is our rainbow baby. For those who don't know, a rainbow baby is a baby born after pregnancy/infant loss. Unfortunately we lost 2 pregnancies prior to Oliver but I am a strong believer that those things happen for a reason & we were meant to end up with our Ollie Man when we finally did. His cheeky personality is starting to shine through as he grows older & I can already tell he's going to give his sister a run for her money!
A part from being a mum, wife to be & business lady, I enjoy spending time with my friends & our small tribe of children between us. All of my friends have at least 1 child, most having 2. It's so great to be able to tackle this journey with them a long for the ride too! I also enjoy going to the gym & staying up way past bed time to enjoy a moment of peace & quiet!
Well, that's enough about me for now. See you all next time!

The love of my life. Wayne.
I also love the races! Fashions on the field is my jam!
Proud to say I've regularly won best millinery/hat over the last 5/6 years & have placed in the top 3 for Ms. Outback twice in the past 3 years.
A small part of our baby tribe. This picture perfectly shows what every day life is like.
