1. What is the name of your shop and where do you look for inspiration?
We are two sisters who created our shop: Easy Life Inspirations.
We let mother nature, baking, cooking and gardening inspire our artistic spirit. These areas of of our lives offer ideas for colors, scents and designs.
2. How has your shop evolved over time?
We have evolved exponentially since opening our shop in October 2015. We started out primarily with handcrafted soaps, some jewelry and a little bit of vintage. Vintage is no longer part of our shop. We love making soaps so much and soon found our passion evolving into all types of bath and beauty products. Soon we found ourselves wanting to improve our own dogs’ well being with our wonderful natural butters and oils so we expanded to a small line of pet grooming products. Then we thought why should we only focus on women and dogs when men have equal needs as well. So we created a small line of men’s grooming products as well. Next we added candles and a Wine Lover’s Section with all kinds of fun and lovely items.
3. What do you love most about your work?
Creating new product ideas and color and scent combinations. Taking ideas from what inspires us and turning it into a beautiful creations. A bonus is keeping my sister and I connected even though we live 1,000 miles apart.
4. What motivating music do you listen to? Share your playlist that gets and keeps you going!
We both love classic rock (especially Southern Rock) as well as country and newer music. Allman Brothers, Lynard Skyyard, Chris Stapelton, Counting Crows, Kongo, The Record Company, My very favorite Willie Nelson and Van Morrison.
5. What book are you reading right now and where is your favorite place to read?
Reading Stephen King right now. My favorite place to read is on the couch curled up with a blanket in the winter and on the deck in the summer.
