Mother's Day Giveaway - Holly Berry Hill

Candles are very magical! They can light up a room. They are great decorative items. They can even change the mood of a room! The Etsymom who is sponsoring today's giveaway, Noelle from Holly Berry Hill ( have some amazing candles in her shop! She uses 100% soy wax and all natural cotton wicks in all her candles and have 12 different scents for you to choose from. You can customize the candle to fit the overall feel of your room with the perfect scent! Candles are great mother's day gift so you will love her prize! I also love the story of her mom that she shared with us below, so read on...

Tell us more about your etsy shop, your items or inspirations?

♥ The main part of my shop is my soy candles. I've been a candle addict forever...there is always one burning or a tart melting somewhere in my home. I live in New England home of the big box "Y" brand so for a long time that is what I burned because I just didn't know any better. After reading an article about soy I had to try it...and I've been hooked ever since. No more sooty walls and ceilings, it really is wonderful! I started making and selling my own about 6 years ago, the neighborhood calls us the best smelling house on the block.

Can you share a little about your mother or being a mother yourself?

♥ My mother is my true inspiration. She is a very talented seamstress, making clothes for us a kids an making the most gorgeous curtains that you can imagine. She has always been creative and as a child she encouraged every creative inclination I ever had. We would sew together, paint together, knitting you name it. Any new craft that came out we would try our hands at it. Now with a daughter of my own I get to nurture that same creative flame and experience the same joy my mother had doing it with me...its a great feeling.

Do you have a memorable mother’s day moment?

♥ With four kids, every Mother's Day is full of memorable moments. What I look forward to the most is getting the gifts that they have made for me in school. I have everything from framed hand prints to stepping stones to pencil holders shaped like fish and I cherish each and every one.

What are you planning to do on Mother’s Day?

♥ Our everyday lives are hectic so we try to keep holidays as laid back and relaxed as possible. My husband will make breakfast for everyone and we'll all pile into our bed in our jammies to eat. In the afternoon my daughter and I (I have 3 sons and 1 spoiled princess daughter) will go have mani/pedis. I love pedicures! If you have never had have to try it!

What’s the biggest challenge you face being a Mom and an Etsy seller?

♥ TIME! I work fulltime on top of being a mom and running a business so time is a hot comodity around my house. I've learned over time how to be the ultimate multi tasker.

Do you have a blog, facebook fanpage, twitter account or another store?

♥ In addition to my Etsy shop I have a Twitter account Http:// and a Facebook (!/pages/Suffield-CT/Holly-Berry-Hill/105552406152868?ref=ts) (neither of which I have done too much with yet) and I also have a website that is just about up and running. I started teaching myself html coding about 4 years ago and I've done most of the coding myself on the website ☺
