Mr. M's Woodshop - Life changed in 2013, when two of the Mrs M’s (my wife Velda and daughter-in-law Alley) decided to create Mrs M’s Handmade and begin selling small batch lotion products at local craft fairs. Since I was drafted to carry everything for the ladies, I had no choice but to participate. I volunteered to contribute the cutting boards, cheese boards and serving pieces featured on this website. Our first sales event was March 22, 2014, and on that day I sold my first handcrafted cheese board. I’ve since discovered that most of the cutting boards sold at retail these days are made to fail. I’ve used my knowledge of woodcraft to create cutting boards and cheese boards that are both unique and functional. And, as long as people keep liking what I do well enough to buy them, I’m going to keep building things!

Fire Dancer Candles and Star Dancer Bath Werkswas launched in 2013 by Ruth and Gayle, who have a passion for great smelling, hand poured candles and bath goods. We began making fine hand crafted soaps in 1999 for a small handful of our friends and co-workers. Because of Ruth’s love of scent she found she had a LOT of scents and too much soap for just her friends and family. Around 2012 she began teaching herself how to make candles. When she finally found a formula that created a long burning, fragrant candle her and her husband Gayle started off by selling the soaps and candles at a local farmers markets. During the farmers market Ruth also began making bath bon bons, salt scrubs and a variety of other bath products.  Eventually we set off to share our hand crafted candles and bath products with a wider market.  We now findourselves traveling the whole state of California, attending music festivals, arts and craft fairs, and just about any street fair or gathering that seems interesting to us.

We are Jacob and Jared. Sure, we like video games, but we also want to earn our own money for college and toys. Since we are only ten and eleven, no one will hire us. So, we created our own company!  Our parents turned us onto homemade soaps. The science and creativity is great fun! We loved using them so much that we decided to make our own and Soaptacular was born! We promise you will love our natural and artisan soaps. They’re Soaptacular!
