Not too long after I started The Southern Belle’s Garden, I struggled with the direction that I wanted to take. I started the company because I love studying herbs. I love seeing how they can influence someone, mentally or physically. I love growing plants and I want to share my love with others.
But then I started making wax melts. Wax melts are so much fun to make and so easy to customize. I started naming them after my favorite things – books, TV shows, movies, etc. But they didn’t mesh with how I thought that The Southern Belle’s Garden should be. Over the past year, I’ve gone over a couple of different options on what to do. I could transition The Southern Belle’s Garden completely over to a more geeky nature (which goes against the whole reason I created it and why I love my business). I could have two companies – though I struggled over what products would go to each one. Or I could quit completely (just kidding, not really an option).
This past weekend, I decided what I am going to do. Please welcome:
gardener & GEEK is a domain that I already owned. Originally, I was going to start another blog for the purpose of posting convention reports, movie reviews, etc. but decided to just add that content to one of my existing websites. gardener & GEEK will have similar products as The Southern Belle’s Garden, except all will be more towards a geeky nature.
The Southern Belle’s Garden will still have candles, my salves, and all-natural bath/body goods. But now that I have my focus, I can start adding other products that I’ve been working on – my tinctures, incense blends, herbal syrups, and tea blends. These are the items that I can’t wait to share with those that need them.
So please, keep an eye here and on my gardener & GEEK website, when it comes live. There is something for everyone on both.
