When I was in 3rd grade, I remember becoming mesmerized by a candle maker in a mock pioneer settlement in Gatlinburg, TN. Later that year when a man at church asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, my parents were less than enthused when I answered 'a candle dipper'.
Well I never lost that fascination with making things by hand and living a lifestyle from a simpler time. Even though I never became that candle dipper, I DO create handmade consumables, and get to play with color and fragrance every day. It's all good!
