“You wouldn’t happen to need a job, would you?” a woman’s voice called from an upper window. I was walking our dog through the common area of our apartment complex and turned toward the voice. Yes, she was talking to me. At that point in time I did, in fact, need a job. Her name was Suzanne, and she owned a small candle and gift shop in town. We chatted and it was agreed that I would come work for her. She taught me how to make candles by rolling cut sheets of beeswax. I learned quite a bit about beeswax and its qualities from Suzanne. I worked my way from part time candle maker to full time shop manager. It was a wonderful experience.
That was 2001 in Alexandria, Virginia. Today, I have my own candle business, and this site is the next logical step. I make my candles in Prescott, Arizona where I live with my husband, Mark, and our 4 cats. If you have any questions for me, please click here and fill out the contact form.
