This Month's Featured Artist:
Sweet Harvest Farms
How did you get started in your craft?
Now that’s a loaded question! How much time do you have? LOL! I really started as a Folk Artist. I have been painting on anything that “didn’t move” since I was 8 years old. I was repurposing before it was the thing to do.
If you really want to pin me down to where it all began I guess I would have to say 1986. I am also a seamstress and designed and made my own line of dresses. Then I started adding my Folk Art and things just got out of hand so I opened the first inline store for the Air Force in San Antonio, Texas. As we moved (husband served 24 years in the US Air Force) I took the store with me! Destin, FL., Germany and even Saudi Arabia!
Since I had about 20 yrs. in the medical field, a phone call from my daughter begging me to do something for my granddaughter who had Eczema so bad she scratched till she bled, prompted me to take the plunge. Having that medical background afforded me the opportunity to formulate my own bath and body recipes, and my “No More Eczema” soap was the first soap I ever made. (to this day one of my best sellers). The soaps and lotions I was already wholesaling into the store did not do for my skin or make me feel the way I thought a good soap or lotion should so I knew I was onto something. That’s when I say Sweet Harvest Farms was truly reborn!
I wholesale and retail my bath and body products worldwide and what started as a small cottage industry has grown by leaps and bounds. It’s a 24/7, 8 days a week job but I love what I do and am passionate about it. I can’t tell you how good it makes you feel when you have customers actually come to you with tears in their eyes because they have finally found products that work on their troubled skin. Many are able to use my products that can’t even use the ones their own Dr. prescribes them! Now that’s something!
All of our products are made with certified organic ingredients, all natural and without any preservatives or chemicals of any kind. That’s extremely important as your skin, being the largest organ, absorbs everything you put on it! So label reading should be very important
What are your inspirations?
Woman that take the “bull by the horns” and go for it! Like it or not, even though we’ve made strides, it is still a man’s world. I appreciate the women that don’t give into fear, drama or demands of others. I admire the women that succeed without hurting others, stealing ideas or clawing their way to the top. My inspiration are those who pay it forward by helping others achieve their own dream.
My favorite quote is:
What are some of your favorite things?
I love playing with oils! LOL! I now that sounds odd but I love mixing different aroma’s to come up with my own unique blends! If you are referring to outside of my business then I guess you could say I love antiquing, fishing and traveling to places I haven’t been before. Life is much too short and I want to do and see everything.
