How it all began,
Well first of all I would like to say, welcome! I am honestly so excited that you are here, and honoured you are taking time out of your day to read a little bit about why and how this business began. First of all, my name is Sonya Marquart. I am currently engaged and in September 2020, I will officially be Sonya Bauman! (Sunny B!). I am born and raised in a small town in Central Alberta, and am currently practicing as a Registered Dental Assistant in Red Deer. Passions and hobbies of mine include hiking, riding horses, spending time with my dog, and as odd as it sounds... candles. I have always been a lover of many different scents/candles/essential oils/wax warmers, etc. My favourite scents are coconut, vanilla, teakwood, all neutral and manly scents are my jam! After buying a new candle from large chain companies every two weeks, I decided to research how to start making candles in my home. I started some trial and error in my kitchen with different waxes, fragrance oils, containers, and wicks, and woah... there was a lot to learn. After finding my go to companies for my candle products I tried to maintain the mindset of supporting as local as possible. My goal is to keep everything within Canada, I do purchase most products out of Surrey, BC and my sweatshirts are made here in Red Deer, AB and Sylvan Lake, AB. You're probably thinking... sweatshirts? You were just talking about candles. Well, that is the other portion of this little business I have started. My closet has always consisted of cozy crewneck sweatshirts, and that is the first thing I grab to wear, whether I am staying home in leggings, wearing it out for supper under a vest, it is just how I roll! I wanted to start printing sweatshirts with quotes and sayings that represent me, my life style, and what I feel any other woman would love to rep for me! So all in all, my goal is to make your home smell great, keep all you ladies cozy and feeling cute, and support local businesses as much as I can during this difficult time. Thank you so much for tuning in, and can't wait to keep you posted with future giveaways, sales, and markets.
