How did you start your business and when?
I started selling on Etsy because I had been purchasing amazing, handmade items from there & I LOVE everything about Etsy, so I decided to start selling my own vegan body products, that I have been so passionate about making. I started making lip conditioners six years ago because I was addicted to it. Yeah, I had to have one in my pocket or on my night stand available for me at any given moment. I turned my addiction into my passion. I LOVE making lip conditioners & coming up with new flavors, as well as making everyone's lips as smoochable as possible. After all, there would be a whole lot more peace in the world if we all just kissed & made up. That brings me to my labels, I'm fascinated by different cultures & I truly believe that 'being different is beautiful' so a lot of my collections are inspired by people from around the world. I LOVE making fun, inspiring, unique labels for my vegan Body Products, but I also care A LOT about using natural ingredients that will make your lips & skin as silky, moisturized & smoochalicious as possible!! So have your cake & eat it too!
What is your favourite product or design to make for customers?
Hmmm...that is a great question. I would have to say my 'Mariska Red Velvet Cake Lip Conditioner' & my 'Circus Cinnamon & Sugar Donuts Whipped Soap' from my Groovy Spookieville shop & my 'Jeans & T-shirt Kind of a Gal' scented Body Mist' from my Beautiful Twists Shop. Oh & I also love 'Lilith the Ghost's Sultry Musk Silky Perfume Oil' from my Fern Lily Girls shop.
What would you do if someone gave you 1 million dollars to invest in your business?
Wow! Another great question. If someone gave me a million dollars to invest in my business I would be thrilled because I would love to help out all my family & friends that need help. I would also love to donate to some animal charities. Although, I would still want to be part of the whole creation process because that is so fun for me & I would still want all the ingredients to be soothing & vegan. That would just be a dream, huh?
How are you gearing up for the holiday season?
I'm gearing up for the holiday season with deep breathing exercises to keep calm & yoga :). I do seem to get crazy busy, but it's kinda of fun too! I'm excited to create some new products & come up with some lovely, groovy characters for the labels.
So like...how much do you love doughnuts?
In the words of Homer Simpson..."D'oh...Drool." I love love donuts, especially ones with sprinkles & cream in the middle. If the donuts have sprinkles on them I instantly revert back to being a happy child at an amusement park...it makes me so excited!!!!
So I know your next question....HOW do I win these?!
Just go to her lovely etsy.com website and come back here and leave a comment saying what wonderful circus flavor you would like to see!!!
This contest closes tomorrow at 9am PST!!!
