Hello my name is Dawn Shaffer and I am a wife, mother to 4 kiddos, a farmer, mold maker and I love Jesus!
My candle making adventure started in 1996 when I asked my mother-in-law for a candle making kit for Christmas. She did get me one, but it was those beeswax roll sheets. I was a bit bummed, but I still enjoy the gift tremendously and burned the candles.
About 7 years after that a friend came up to me and needed local handmade candles for her shop. I figured “why not!”.
That began my journey into candle making.
Testing, testing, testing and more testing occurred in the first 6 mos. of my adventure. I started selling right after that.
I sold candles for 4 years and during those 4 years I made custom designs that fit my style of candle making. I loved it.
Pretty soon I found myself selling my silicone molds. I found my true calling.
It is a wonderful journey and I still am on that journey.
