Candles By Lisa Tennessee
It was always a dream of mine to sell something I love to make, so it was either candles, or cooking. I chose candles so I wouldn't be tempted to eat everything I made. However, I wasn't planning on following that dream until my husband and I had 2 children and both were in school. A friend of mine, apparently, thought I should go ahead and start making them, before we had even our first baby. Before I could really think about making my dream a reality, she brought over a box of gel candle making supplies, with 10 pounds of gel in it! Then, my mom decided I needed to make my dream even bigger, and gave me a box of Pillar/Votive candle supplies, with a hobby sized pack of wax.
So, in the kitchen of our tiny 1 bedroom home near the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, I started trying to take my own steps toward making my dream come true.
Since then, my husband has taken over my friend and my mom's roles in my dream, by encouraging me to continue creating candles, allowing my creative ideas to become tangible items.
My friend, mom and husband are the reasons I felt confident enough to make the candles I never dreamt I could. I'm not perfect at all types yet, but I am learning and becoming better at them. (And I never let an imperfect item be photographed, much less, given to my customers, unless it was an imperfection someone, for whatever reason, wanted to have.) And I pour all of my heart into making the best candles I can, which I hope everyone sees in each item they buy from me. Please feel free to ask me questions, voice your concerns, ask to make a custom candle, etc.

In 1st grade, on a field trip, I made my first candle, a layered, carved candlestick, colored by melted crayons. I was so excited after it was done. That same excitement is still here. I hope my joy for the craft shows through in all of my candles.
