A Passion for Crafting Everyday

Friday, June 7th, 2013

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Michelle Pitzer and my company name is Natural Creations by Shell

I love to create and craft anything and everything I can get my hands on! I started making m&p soaps years ago because I wanted to try my hands at something new and I fell in love! It first started as just another fun hobby, then gifts for family and friends, and occasionally selling around Christmas time. Over the last year I have decided this is it and I have now been working on doing more craft shows and really trying to make this a full time business. I am making so much more than m&p and hand scrubs now, I’ve added a whole line of bath & body treats, candles, and many of the other crafts I enjoy making such as bookmarks, cat toys, and yarn wreaths. My passion for this seems to grow more and more each and everyday. I put great care and love in each and every product that I make. I would like to eventually have a little store with a workshop and hold classes as well. Coming across your website has helped spark the creativity! My favorite Natures Garden product is the Pillar of Bliss Wax, I love all the fragrance oils I’ve tried, aroma beads, herbs, lip balm base & flavorings, m&p’s, and the jars are just some of my favorite NG items!

Relax and Rejuvenate the Soul

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  Jennifer – Harmony Designs & Soaps

My slogan is: Relax & Rejuvenate the Soul.

I absolutely love creating.  It makes me feel such an accomplishment seeing the before and after. I love all the fragrance oils and love experimenting with them. Nature inspired my shop and my product design. A lot of my inspiration comes from nature. I am also a nature photographer and so much enjoy being outside and capturing nature’s beauty.

I lost my Dad to cancer in 2007 and he inspired me to do what I love to do. I know he would be very proud of me today.

I carry a variety of products in my Etsy shop, lip balms, body sprays, kanzashi hair flowers and bath salts just to name a few. I am always inspired to try new things. Sometimes they work out sometimes they don’t, I guess that’s called trial and error. Natures Garden carries so many products to help give you a kick start to create.

I came up with the name Harmony Designs because I thought about its meaning and it fit my shop perfectly.

Meaning: internal calm : balance, tranquility. I love that my shop name relays a tranquil feeling. The whole idea behind starting my shop was that I wanted to help people relax and have that “me” time that we all crave. We all have such busy lives and need that little bit of peace and quiet after a long day at work. My bath salts are wonderful for that reason. I use all my products myself and wouldn’t put anything out there that I didn’t wholeheartedly believe in. I love when people love my products. It makes me feel what I do is successful. Without my wonderful customers my shop wouldn’t exist.

Even when I was little I loved creating, painting and whatever else my little creative mind could get a hold on. I am pretty much a Jane of all trades. I do wear a lot of hats but wouldn’t want it any other way.  I love making favors for Weddings! I love being able to share in someones special moment. Just a side note my wedding is coming up in September and I am so excited! I know how it feels to want something special for your wedding so I take a lot of pride in making wedding favors.

Also when I was little I remember the lovely aromas coming from the kitchen when my parents were baking. I think that is one of the reasons I love my soy tart melts so much. I love all the dessert fragrances and it brings back those wonderful memories of my Dad making peach cobbler or my Mom baking. I love that my soy tart melts last and fill the house with so many wonderful Natures Garden Fragrances!

Personalizing Your Pampering Products

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  Kristin Rosio- Da Bomb Cosmetics

I have always had a love for bath and body products. I would always make gifts and give them to friends and family as Christmas gifts. As a young teen, I took classes on soap and toiletry making. I went to Cosmetology school after I graduated high school. A few years later I was working with children who had disabilities and part time dabbling with bath bombs and selling them at a local flea market. A few months later, I had a lady ask if I did parties, and little did I know, that she would inspire me to go in that direction. I officially started DBC in January 2012. (I started the research in August 2011). The theory behind DBC is that everyone should be able to create their escape by personalizing their pampering products. It has come with it’s share of triumphs and frustrations, but I enjoy the journey none the less. The more I started showing my products at craft and vendor expos the more positive feedback I received. One day, I had a customer tell me she loved it so much that she would like to sell it. And today, that is where I stand now. Starting another exciting business venture in the world of direct sales. I will begin accepting consultants this year while I keep the integrity of manufacturing the products by hand. This has truly been an amazing experience that I cannot wait to see grow into something more. I will also continue to be the main product developer. That is the best part of my job, its fun and I love developing new products. I also love being able to create a product and still allow the freedom for my customers to personalize it for themselves. The one thing I have learned from this all is to follow your dreams and don’t’ give up.

Various Scented Bath Products

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

fragrance oils1. What’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Amelia Ruth Thompson, owner & founder of Radical Works.

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?  I’ve been creating things literally my entire life. Over time, the things I would create would take up space; more space than I actually had. When in Spring 2009, a friend suggested, “Why don’t you sell things on Etsy?” So my original idea was simply to clear out space. I opened a shop, but nothing sold. In 2010, the same friend invited me to share a table with her at Louisianime II. There, I sold many of my crafts, with a lady suggesting I open a business to sell items all the time. So the following week, I opened a new shop, Radical Works. From there, I’ve added many difference types of products; as Radical Works is not limited to a single category. Having a shop has not only helped me maintain my crafts and organization, but it has also opened up my mind to many different types of crafts. I always try to include different types within other items.

3. What products do you make and sell?  Starting off, I had Radical Bears (teddy bears), magnets, and some leather-working items. In the more recent inventory, I have Radical Bears, hats, scarves, gloves, along with various bath products. This includes soap, bath salts, and perfumes. I’ve also made and sold bath bombs & lotions at a craft show.

4. What are your business goals?  I try to set short term goals for myself, as the long term goals can quickly change. But the main goal for my business is freedom through expression. Too many times I’ve been the “odd ball out” in most cases. With my business, it gives me the avenue and method to express myself to others, as well as have others find themselves within my products. It has always been a message in my business: “I never make anything I would like myself”.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  The main products I purchase from the awesome Natures Garden are their bases as well as their fragrances. The fragrances are what keep me coming back, and I love having the fragranced item with the purchases as well. I have a vase for the fragranced roses I’ve received over time.

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  Layla Colegrove & Kathy Colegrove / Flowering Tree Botanicals

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  My mother (Kathy) and I started our business in 2008 and originally only sold botanical supplies. We experimented with using those botanicals in bath products and the rest is history. This month marks our 5th year in business and going strong!

What products do you make and sell?  We still sell a wide variety of botanicals along with bar soap, whipped soap, our signature Bubble Crumbles™ bubble bath, bath crystals, body mist, sugar scrub, whipped soap, lip “quenchies”, tub truffles, bath bombs and more! We’re always adding new products to our lineup to keep things interesting.

What are your business goals?  Primarily, we’ll be focusing on expanding our presence in retail stores. We’ve got a few other things in the works but we have to keep those secret – for now!

What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  The fragrance oils are fantastic and we especially love the lip balm base!

Sweet Smelling Dessert Soaps

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

fragrance oils1. What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Dorothy Arrington, Purple Cupcake Soaps

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? The business name was changed to Purple Cupcake Soaps last year, after two years as a soap making company. Under the old name of The Purple Cupcake, I ran a cake decorating company since 2005. I decided to officially leave cake decorating after becoming a single mom and the passing of the law HB32. HB32 allowed anyone to run a bakery from without regulation, and the next thing I knew everyone was doing it. However, I didn’t want to loose my decorating skills. Another cause that was close to my heart was using natural medicine and products, from this I decided to create more natural soaps and lotions. All of my products have a sweet tooth personality, whether they look like a dessert or smell like one.

3. What products do you make and sell?  Currently, I make dessert shaped soaps, sweet scented lotions, and natural lip balms.

4. What are your business goals?  Eventually, I would like to have a small shop set-up like a ice cream shoppe. I would also like to create more natural products.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; What are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  All of my fragrances, mp soap, and dyes come from Natures Garden. I love the SLS free products and that NG tries to keep their products as natural as possible. I am over the moon that NG has started selling herbs and citric acid! My all time favorite products are Sinus Relief Fragrance and Kiss of death Flavor Oil.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I decided to go into business after years of teaching preschool.  I came across candle and soap making while finding crafting projects for the children and I got hooked.  I have been in business for 7 years and did nothing but research and test for 2 years prior.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make and sell a range of bath and body items, air and carpet fresheners, and a variety of wax melts and candles.

4.  What are your business goals?  I strive to have not just great products that people can truly enjoy but great customer service as well.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  Some of the products I use from Nature’s Garden are their waxes and fragrance oils; both of which are constant must haves for me. Nature’s Garden is my “go to” supplier and always will be! I love Natures Garden fragrance oils; they are awesome quality fragrance oils and they carry a large variety.  My current favorite is Frozen Margarita (in fragrance and flavor oil)!
