Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your business: Hi! I make soap by hand from scratch using pure oils, botanicals and other great stuff. My soaps are deeply moisturizing...no more after-shower dry itchy skin. Yay!
Q: What are your favorite materials to work with? Essential oils. Nature packs a punch in those little vials.
Q: Who inspires you? Creatives and makers. Small business owners. My family.
Q: Name three guilty pleasures of yours: Fresh-roasted Sumatra coffees, Netflix, Facebook stalking
Q: What is your favorite part of being a maker or supporting makers? Running my own small business forces me to confront my weaknesses and embrace my strengths. It has taught me more than I could have imagined. I feel more alive than ever.
Q: As a professional in the booming handmade economy, what part of your work do you find most difficult? PACKING/SHIPPING is drudgery incarnate. And....At first I found it exciting, but nowadays, I loathe social media upkeep and email communications. Eats up so much of my day.
Q: What drives your creative process? Instagram! So much inspiration on there every day.
