Remember me mentioning working hard on a new venture....? Well, I'm here to announce what I've been working so hard on this last month.

I have just opened my new etsy shop!!! it is fragrance inspired by my artwork and long-time love of oils. i have always had a good nose palette stemming back from my childhood when i adored everything that "smelled-good". I loved collecting candles, smelly erasers, smelly markers, and strawberry shortcake dolls.

Right now, I only have a few fragrances available and a couple of amazing bath salts!! But stay tuned for more fragrances and other surprises!!!

 here is my shop announcement: (my little sister helped me name the shop.....i struggled with finding a name that told the story of my shop as well as one that had not already been taken. I think this is perfect)
The Understory is the growth layer lowest on the forest floor mostly underneath tiny twigs, leaves, and small plants. There, closest to the soil, the understory has many complexities and indeed stories to tell. My shop is inspired by the nostalgia of my childhood and the simple everyday pleasures. My blends take shape visually and olfactory.
