*FEATURED ARTIST of the week* ~~CozyMoments~~


CozyMoments
Bath, Body, Home


1. What do you create?

Bath and Body Goodies and Natural Soy Wax Wickless Candles and Melts, or as we like to call our melts, 'Cozy Melts'. ;)


2. What led you to take up your craft?

I suffered from dry skin most of my life and I became passionate about creating pampering and soothing products that would rid me of my dry skin.



For the candles/melts - I used to love to burn candles but I seemed to always either get a headache from them or get terrible sinus problems, so my ENT concluded it had to be the paraffin! I researched this and found natural soy wax and began teaching myself how to make natural soy wax candles/melts. No more headaches or sinus problems here. ;)




3. Which part of your work do you most enjoy?

I enjoy it all really but I especially love making soap. I can be most creative with our soaps.



4. Which part do you find hardest?

Decorating everything! I love to do it but it is very time consuming.


5. Where do you get your inspiration?

My customers. My customers give me so many awesome ideas as far as which scents they love, products they would like to see me carry, etc.


6. Do you participate in any etsy groups, and if so, which ones?

I did in several but my time has become so limited I had to reprioritize. ;)


7. What's one material your shop can't live without?

Fragrance Oil.


8. What is your favorite item that you have purchased off of Etsy?

A little amigurumi the seller halix called, "Lamby". I absolutely LOVE him! He is TOO cute!


9. If I could sell one item from my shop today, it would be...

Lavender and Peppermint Creamy Sugar Foot Scrub. It is an awesome foot scrub, esp. after a long day working. :)



A real "pamper me" product.


10. If I had enough money to pick one item on my wish list from any shop on etsy to buy, it would be...

Tallulah Earrings - Swiss Blue Topaz Green Amethyst Prehnite Keshi Petal Pearls and Solid 18k Gold from sandraeileenjewelry.



GORGEOUS earrings!


11. What are the top three favorite items currently listed in your store?

Pink Sugar anything (I use this scent in a lot of our products as our customers LOVE it)

Foaming Sugar Body Polish and our

Foaming Bath and Shower Cream Soap. :)


12. What undiscovered artisans would you recommend the world to know?

I am not sure I know of any undiscovered, but who I would recommend would be the following:

PurdyThings,

PinkaWink,

NewEnglandQuilter,

therosecottage,

AnnieHowes and

TheCelticCottage. :)


13. What is the best advice you have ever received?
