2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?  I was always playing with candle making then my husband bought me some candle making supplies for Christmas back in 2002 I believe it was. My playing kinda exploded from there and in 2004 I started taking my candles to craft shows. I have been in business for going on 9 years.

3. What products do you make and sell?   I make all kinds of candles and wax dipped items (bears, toilet paper, snowmen and whatever else I find) :)

4. What are your business goals?  My goal is to start selling more and more on line.  I am doing really well at shows.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden? Almost all my fragrance oils that I use for my candles come from Natures Garden. Also lots of odds and ends caution label’s, molds, color blocks.  My favorite item ( that is hard you have so many oils that are wonderful); but I guess I would have to say right now it is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.
