Let me start by stating that I am a candle maker. I am the owner of Love Lucy Candles and I make small batch all natural soy candles. Love Lucy Candles is located in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area. Feel free to check out the website here. I’ve been making candles for more than five years now. It started as a hobby then progressed into a business in 2013. This is my baby. I am proud to see grow and I know that with focus and strategy it can become a household name.
Now that I’ve gotten that out the way, I want to share that I am a DIY type of girl and I love handmade goods. So I’ve decided to write about these interests. I have always been a general supporter of buying local and shopping small, but the truth is that now that I am a small business owner myself, I am an avid supporter of handmade goods and shopping small. There are literally thousands of handmade (and quality made) alternatives out there when it comes to home goods, bath and beauty products, clothes, etc., and I want to share these handmade alternatives with you. In addition I will be sharing awesome DIY projects for the holidays and beyond that make for great family time projects, handmade gifts, and money savers. I hope you will subscribe and follow! Happy Holidays!
