What brought you to do your business?
At the start of this unique time, we had some time on our hands a few DIY projects we wanted to try out and one of them were these candleholders. They are easy to make but labor-intensive, so everything thing about them is intentional, as they are made from either pine or cedar.
When did the idea of creating your business start? How long have you been in business?
Right around January of this year, I was looking for a unique way to celebrate my son’s birthday for June, then the pandemic happened, had some extra time on our hands, and just started listing them on Etsy.
