Jenna's Profile

About

Hi! My name is Jenna, and I am a stay at home mom of 3 children, 6, 3 and 4 months old. I began making candles about 2 years ago after I lost my job. At first, I made them solely to cut down on monthly costs (we spent about $100 a month on candles, room sprays and fragrances for our house!) To me, having a house that makes you feel like you are at home is very important to me. I have always got compliments about how people felt when they walked into my home. Even after making my own candles, I was still getting compliments about the scents that throughout my house! I started making gift baskets for friends and family for special occasions, like birthdays and holidays, to also cut down the costs of not having a job. After a while, people started asking me to make them baskets to give to their friends and family. Thats where it all began. I then realized that I can do something I love, make money and spend time with my growing kids…

After a while, people started asking me to make them baskets to give to their friends and family. Thats where it all began. I then realized that I can do something I love, make money and spend time with my growing kids. Friends and neighbors told me that I should sell my products locally to businesses for extra profit, and thats what I started to do. I was then on a mission to be more involved in my community, and also, support Michigan, with the downward fall of the economy. I live in downtown Plymouth, about 20 minutes away from Detroit, the Motor City. Thats where our name came from. I just recently opened an etsy account, and started up the website (still under construction) www.motorcitycreations.com

Take a look around, and enjoy yourself while you're here! I strive for the best customer service to my customers, and always encourage ideas from different scents, to new products.

Currently I only sell candles, but I plan on making home-made vegan friendly soaps, scrubs, bath bombs and more! Ideas are always appreciated! Thank you so much for taking the time to read a little bit about myself =]
