Fabulously, Fantasmagorically Friendly Friday!

It's Friday!!!

This week I'm featuring Shelley (another Swanky friend) from Nahia Creations. Her shop name means "desire" in Basque, which is a nod to her husband's ancestry. In fact, all the products she makes and sells are different translations of "desire." She chooses the translation based on the ingredients representative of that country or culture. She is inspired by different cultures, and her shop is her way of sharing cultures from around the world with her customers.

Although she started her college career in Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising, she switched her major to accounting and discovered she actually liked it! This background comes in handy while running her shop.
Skin troubles gave her a reason to start making her soaps, and staying home after the birth of her twins gave her the time to start her business. Most people would find it difficult to run a business with twins, but she takes full advantage of naptimes and bedtimes.

Check out her shop to see all her great products, including her favorite bath salt, Makemake. She also has a website with a blog attached to keep her customers updated.

Buy Handmade

Each soap is hand stamped. My hubby designed the logo... it is my profile.
