I had the wonderful opportunity to review products from the HuckleBee Hollow Etsy shop! The shop is full of THE most adorable Whipped Body Butters, Sudsy Shower Gels, Hand Sanitizing Gels & Bathtub Salts packaged in literally the cutest little containers you could ever imagine! Each bottle can be personalized for your specific needs, whether you are having a baby shower, a wedding or bridal shower you name it, because they also do custom orders! Everything I received smelled so wonderful, and honestly left me full of regret…I am sure you are now wondering why wonderfully cute body products would leave one full of regret? I am regretful that I didn’t find this shop before my Sister In Laws baby shower… just look at the absolutely adorable lil’ princess shower gel in Pink Pop Sugar ( above )! It would have went absolutely perfect with our theme, and been such a cute favor for all of the party guests…drats! ( check out my baby shower post and you will see…it would have been perfection! )
I always like to share a little bit of background info on my reviews and found the about section on the HuckleBee Hollow Etsy page super interesting, so I thought I would share!
“My company began in March 2010 after months and months of failed attempts at making whipped sugar scrubs. Once a recipe was (finally) developed and tested, I quickly started to envision a small business where I could earn a little extra money, have fun making yummy new products, and donate to local homeless shelters.
But….what would I call this business? I spent weeks thinking of the perfect name, only to find out that the name I hoped for (Huckleberry Hollow) was not available to use. Back to the drawing board! I had lists of names, but none felt quite right. Then one evening while I was working on the business my son, Kaiden, (who was not quite 3 at the time) asked me if I was working on scrubbies for ‘HuckleBee Hollow’. HuckleBee Hollow?!!?! It was perfect! And that’s how the first lil’ piece of my heart went into my business.
The second lil’ piece of my heart went into my business when my daughter, Kiersen, was born in March 2011 (just one year after starting HuckleBee Hollow). After her birth I wasn’t sure what to do with a little girl….after all, I was used to a ‘rough-and-tumble’ little boy who liked monster trucks and nerf guns. It didn’t take long for me to figure out that this new little bundle meant that I would need lots and lots of cute hair bows! Thus…the second part of my business (and my heart) was born!
I’m so grateful that I’m here today on this Etsy site selling my products. A lot of work goes into creating a business…both in what you, as customers, see and what goes on ‘behind the scenes’. I’m thankful for the patience and support of my husband for all the late nights I’ve put into starting this business, filling orders, etc…..I’m thankful for my father who spent many hours building me special handmade wooden keepsakes for this business – many of which I will treasure forever…..I’m thankful for my mother who is always there to support me, provide me with honest opinions about my products and who has gotten me many customers through her reflexology business…..I’m thankful for my sister-in-law, Tina, who believed in me enough to hold my first fundraising event….I’m thankful for all my friends and family who have supported me on this journey, but mostly, I am thankful that God has given me what I need to grow this business into something special.
Ya know….they always say you know you have the perfect job when it doesn’t feel like work…I guess I found my ‘perfect job’!”
