About

This is probably a little too long. Sorry in advance

A Little Intro...

My husband and I recently moved to Canada in spring 2016. I started candle making back home as a hobby but did not have access to the supplies to make them as unique as they are today. The move was challenging on both of us emotionally and it was the first time we were on our own as a married couple so I forgot about candle making during our first months here.

After, a few months of the excitement of being somewhere new and new adventures, I began feeling depressed. I really missed home and the struggle of managing life in Canada was real. I literally cried every day - no exaggeration. My loving and very understanding husband encouraged me to pick up a hobby and to just focus on something I loved to do - to keep my mind occupied and away from negative thoughts.

A Flame Was Lit (no pun intended)...

By day I worked as a clerk but by night I poured my soul into creating. I had access to so many things for candle making in Canada that I was able to make anything that I wanted. My dreams and thoughts were consumed with what to make next! Initially I did it for me but after it was noticed by a few people it really made me feel ecstatic to know that my creations made others happy too. I never thought about selling my creations but here we are thanks to my husband who believed in me. Heck I still have the money from my first sale framed and it reminds me of how grateful I am to the person for giving me that nudge.

Why Candles...

For me the smell of something can ignite so much memories, feeling and emotions in a person. I have always loved how scents can make our childhood or any other memory come pouring back and fill you up with so much joy...or sorrow. I still remember the scent of a perfume my mother use to wear when I was a toddler and when I smell that scent I feel safe. I feel loved.

Or how the scent of Pine Sol reminds me of waking up to a house already cleaned and breakfast on the table. I will especially never forget how the house smelled during Christmas!

Thank you mum.

These are the kind of feelings I hope to ignite in others as well. Nothing but happy warm memories and hopefully my candles can be a part of helping others form some new memories as well!

Where We Go From Here...

To be honest, I never thought I would make it this far. But now that I am here I hope to take this even further. I know I am in the infant stage of this process but I want to continue and work hard because I want to eventually make my passion my full time job. You know what they say - If you love what you do then you will never work a day in your life!

With Love
