It started with one candle ...

Just one candle. I'd never made one before, but after dwelling for weeks on how to make a handmade gift for Christmas -- and failing at many attempts -- it all came down to one last weekend and one last chance to get it right.

The rest is history, of course, because here I am making candles, soaps and lip balms, living a little bit of a dream that I didn't know I had.

I'm a mother of two small boys, wife to an incredibly supportive (and oh-so-patient) husband, and in my day to day life I still hold a 9 - 5 job. But at night and sometimes in my free time at work, I'm dreaming of soaps and candles and how to better my craft.

My pockets are full of ideas and I'm excited to share them with you!
