Featured Team CAC Seller

Sorry about not having a featured seller last week, the time flew by me so fast that it wasn’t until it was too late that I realized I didn’t have anyone.   No, you’re not getting two this week to make up for it.  Just one, Simplypuresoycandles.


What is your favorite quote?

All things are possible if you believe! Mark 9:23

What is your favorite movie?

Titanic, but a close second is Dumbo (I know but we have kids!)

What is your favorite TV show?


What is your favorite song at the moment?

Dead or Gone, by TI and Justin Timberlake

What kinds of music do you listen to?

A little bit of everything, I enjoy all kind of music just depends on my mood! From instrumental to alternative!

How long have you been creating?

3.5 years

What inspires you?

Everything around me, things I want to use, things that i think are pretty, my kids and family.

Please describe your creative process (the how, the when, materials, etc.).

Is there any kind of music you listen to when you create?

No I like to concentrate!

What's your biggest artistic disaster to date? How did it help you progress?

Well I am bad at putting the wrong color in my wax!! Like if I am making lemon, of course it needs to be yellow well sometimes it doesn't get yellow, but maybe blue or green! LOL but after about 3 times of that... I pay very close attention to what i lay on my work table!

What's your favorite piece that you've done?

My favorite things that I make are my candles, I made a rustic pillar for Christmas that was black and red and it was my fav! Scented in Apple Jack.

What's the best advice you were given when starting out?

Take it slow and make sure your product is worth buying!

Do you have any advice to give others?

Just because others make items/products doesn't mean that everyone can. It is not as easy as you think! Everything gets better with practice!

What's coming up for you; any big plans artistically?

Well every April there is a store that lets me place my items there and we do very well until November! So I am very excited about that.

Where can we find you? Both online and in stores.

You can find me online at on etsy and in Ashe county stores Sally Mae's, The NorthWest Trading Post and in the surranding area in Boone at Green Mother Goods. We also do around 9 festivals a year so always out and about!
