From Frog Garden Crafts
What’s your name & Your Company Name (Why Did you choose that name?):
Susan Pagon, Frog Garden Crafts, I love and collect Frog stuff so I wanted “Frog” in the name. I went through a lot of name ideas and everyone liked the “Frog Garden” one.
How did you get into this business?:
I went to massage school, and took the Spa option with my courses and they had an “Aromatherapy” course as a part of it. I loved it!! We made lotions, salt scrubs, and all kinds of cool body stuff. I learned the Therapeutic properties of Essential Oils and really enjoyed making my own blends. I eventually branched out into soaps and Fragrance Oils, and eventually my friends and family told me I should open an Etsy store. Now I’m having fun making Bath, Body, & Home products for sale.
What is your favorite part of this business?:
The feedback I get from people who really enjoy my products. I also love the artistic side of designing different soaps, and I love all the different fragrances to work with out there. Never ending possibilities.
What’s the most difficult part?
Being able to dedicate enough time to the craft with kids, school, and home life.
What’s your favorite product or aspect of Natures Garden?
The fragrances are so unique and they have an excellent variety to choose from. I have several NG scents that I couldn’t live without!! I also love the monthly scent sale.
What are your goals for the coming year for your business?
Of course everyone’s goal is to make a living doing what they love, so I guess my goal would be to reach that level in my business.
