Meet Heather

Hi, I’m Heather and I like to think of myself as someone who is just a few matchsticks short of being a pyro.  I’ve had a borderline obsession with candles and fire since I was around ten years old, and am now confidently heading towards my dream job; to be self-employed and doing what I love for a living (!) on Cape Cod.  

I've always loved to create and have my hands in art projects. When I was a kid I'd create paper items to sell to my family out of my room, complete with elevator music playing in the background. As a mom, when I craft with my kids, you will find me creating with them as well, sitting right in the middle of glue and glitter with a grin on my face.

I first started my Etsy shop back in 2010 with photography, though I've loved photography since I was a kid. Photography has been where my creativity came out for most of my life.

In 2014, I received my Yoga Teacher Training certificate, and dove right in to teaching, eventually quitting my office job in 2015 to try on teaching 'full time'.

When I was contemplating giving up teaching, a student gave me a candle as her token of appreciation. I remember where I was standing, torn between accepting the gift she gave me, knowing in that moment I had made my decision, and giving it back to her and running from the room, feeling like I was somehow letting her down in leaving the role as teacher. That candle was pivotal in the next question I asked of myself regarding my career a few days later, "If not this, then what?" I remembered the candle. And how much I love candles, whether it was making my own melted wax creations as a kid, working in a candle store as an older teen, or constantly burning candles as an adult.

Cue the light bulb above the head or, as in my case, the flame above the wick, and my next step was illuminated before me. I haven't looked back and like the light the candle gives, each step is being lit before me. So from photography to yoga to candle maker, you'll find all three aspects sprinkled throughout my shop. The names might be reflective of something I was taught through my teacher training, my pictures of my products are still my own, and I've never had so much FUN ... I love my job!

I find the beauty in almost everything, which is why I'm constantly trying out new creations to see what looks and smells good to me. I hope you enjoy what you see as much as I have enjoyed creating it!

I look forward to working with you...namaste.
