What got you started crafting?
A recent trip to the local candle store with a friend of mine. I was looking around and it just dawn on me that I really wanted something that was out of box(jar as I should say). They had the standard candle in a jar with also the standard fragrances. I wanted to create a candle that not only look cute, but it has to have a unique scent as well. I did my research, had a fellow candle maker show me the basic of making candle. The rest is history.
What is your source of inspiration?
I have to say the my customer are my inspiration and my family. You just don't know how it feel to have something you made that is greatly recieved. I gain new customer and returned customers. Just to hear some of my customer tell me that I am your regular customer from now on, is great to hear.
What have you made recently?
My recently made candle are my single and two-tone 3oz jar candles that I called"Sweet Delight Jar Candles."
They made with soyblend wax topped off with frosting. Each jar candles can be custom made for any occasion. The frosting on top give it that cupcake feel.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
Right now I sell on my Esty store and at a local Boutique. I have two more store set up and will be selling my candles there as well. I also do craft shows to reach other candles lovers.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
I love handmade because I can pronounce the ingredients that I put in. The idea of handmade mean that it is made with care and special touches that I put in into each candle. I make sure the candle has a great cold throw even before you light them. I make sure the wick that I am using is clean burning as well as my wax.
