Lisa B Gardner's Profile

About

If anyone had told me a couple of years ago that I would be making soap and soy wax candles, sewing placemats and making bags from the burlap bags my husband buys his coffee in, I would have said they were crazy! I would have told them I didn't have time. There wasn't enough room and that eventhough it's always been a dream of mine to have a gift shop, it was simply impossible! Now, here I am. I'm a music teacher and for the most part, my job has been a big part of my life. A couple of years ago, all of that changed when I tried making soap.
Then I started making candles and selling what I made at the farmer's market and on Etsy. Crazy as it is, I have become a crazed crafter with this unbelievable passion for creating things. Somehow, I've made time and space and I even have a gift shop. Amazing what passion can do.
