What's your favorite fall candle? Here at Flagstaff Crafted, we are obsessing over Simply Bee's amazing and unique line of handmade beeswax candles. @simplybeesoapandstuff creates hand-poured, natural beeswax candles that burn longer than most standard paraffin and soy candles. They are free of toxic chemicals and carcinogens. They help to purify the air as they are natural ionizers. So light a Simply Bee Candle, curl up with a book and enjoy a hot beverage. You will love the warmth a beeswax candle brings to your home. To purchase a pure beeswax candle, click on the link in our bio and select 'Simply Bee' under 'Shop'. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #flagstaffcrafted#shopflagstaffcrafted#flagstaffregionliving#flagstaffregionsmallbusiness#handmadeflagstaffregion#handmadealberta#myflagstaff#icreatedit#flagstaffcraftedmarket#talentedartisan#collaboration#shophandmade#shopsmallbusiness#shopsmallbiz#makersgonnamake#makersmovement#handmademovement#homemadeislove#makercommunity#modernmaker#beeswax#candle#fall#handpoured#home
We have a lot of new followers - WELCOME! We’re halfway done with the Autumn/Holiday busy season (it’s a busy four months), and we want to do a quick introduction. . We are John and Sarah Collins, forever newlyweds at heart who “accidentally” turned a candle making hobby into a small business in March 2015. We both resigned our traditional 9-5 jobs **big gasp** and jumped head first into the craziness of ETSY, festivals, wholesale…you name it. . We’ve learned a lot. A lot of business stuff that neither of us came into knowing. “Business stuff” is the technical term. Taxes. And insurance. The not-so-fun stuff. We learned how to hire team. Lead. Create a work culture. We’ve learned how to jungle family and business. Nah, we’re still learning that one. We’ve learned how to travel with family. How to raise two little kids, love each other, and pursue this crazy dream of ours. . What exactly do our roles look like? Our roles have shifted over the past four years, and at one point we’ve each done every part of Modern Forestry, from wholesale to pouring to scent creation. In this season of little kids, Sarah is a stay-at-home-mom with our two little kids (almost 3 years and 8 months), and she leads our event team and handles all things social media. John is our fearless leader, handling day-to-day studio life, taxes, team building…big picture. He is also out every weekend he can sharing our story and Modern Forestry Soy Candles. . We love what we do, but most of all we love that we get to do it together. It isn’t always easy, but the revolutionized family time and way of life is worth every challenge. Thank you for supporting Modern Forestry, our family, and the families that work in the Forestry Studio. Here’s to a great second half of the Autumn/Holiday season!
Our gorgeous Activated Charcoal Soap made last night. Ideal for all skin types, it absorbs oil and dirt from the skin as well as whisking away dead skin. Treat yourself to this magical little bar. #soap#charcoalsoap#peppermint#essentialoils#handmadewithlove#handpoured#handmade#beautifulskin#perthmumboss#perth#westernaustralia
Fun fact: soy wax is made from the oil of soybeans. After the soybeans are harvested they are then cleaned, cracked, dehulled, and made into flakes. The oil is then extracted out of the flakes and is made into solid form, soy wax! 🌱👍
