Her products include bath bombs, sugar scrubs, candle melts, body and home sprays as well as delectable cake pops and cocoa bombs in a wide variety of flavors.
The beauty of Kim’s offerings is that she enjoys working with her clients to create personalized products such as scents and chocolate arrangements. She strives to use only natural products. The journey has been a positive one for Kim who not only is self-employed and healthy but able to use her ideas to make people smile.

Beach Textiles by Brenda
As a child Brenda spend her summers in West Texas between grannies. One was the wife of a farmer, gardener, and cook. The other was a single mom during the depression and supported her two daughters doing seamstress work. Brenda’s first known piece was a fabric doll she made when she was 6 years old. She is a completely self-taught textile artist and feels that the textiles tell her, through color and feel, what they should become.
Brenda’s Hatteras Bowl comes in two sizes, small and large. The one in the giveaway is the smaller-sized version. It was designed to make you long for our beaches!
