I turned a craft hobby into a business!

This isn't an ad, just my story:)

A few months ago I started thinking about making candles with bracelet charms hidden in them. I didn't tell many people about it because I wasn't sure if I wanted to take the ultimate leap. I'm a full time graduate student with a job, a 3 year old, and a husband. I would dream about my candles and it's all I could talk about to my husband. He finally got sick of my wishing/hoping/dreaming and told me to go for it.

Now I have a trademarked, licensed business. I work and go to school and don't go to bed until 3-4am. I'm exhausted, happy, and we're doing pretty well, having recently sold our 1000th candle!

I won't post the business page here because again, this isn't an ad. Just my brief story behind the launch of Tiny Trinket Candles. If you have a dream of any kind you should go for it!

    super cute, i do have a dream of course not many people have need for this.  I am really good at making ferret hammocks.  My ferret has 3.  1 huge one that was suppose to be for my friend that she sorta stole for herself and 2 small that are just her size.  So far my friends only buy them, but i'd like to expand some day.

    Isnt that sorta like diamond candles? I like thst idea, a hidden treasure.
    Im interested in sewing dolls and other stuffies, but I need lots more practice. One day, I will be good enough. But there are a lot of others who make the same.

    I bet you could find a niche market! Or expand to making animal hammocks for all sorts of pets; cats, guinea pigs, etc.
