Kathy Kuhl, NelliDesigns by KuhlStudio, LLC

NelliDesigns is a pet inspired candle and gift business. Our beginnings are rooted in the basic need to honor our pets once they have passed on. With the death of our first dog, Maggie, we quickly realized there was not a personal memorial on the market that truly resonated with us. So I made myself a candle using Maggie's old collar and tags around the candle's neck. After making them for friends with tags engraved with their pets' name, requests starting pouring in for the candles. We quickly realized there was a need beyond our own. And Maggie's Light Memorials were born. 

With the adoption of Nelli, a line of gift candles celebrating our pets and our bond were added to our merchandise line-up. We sell through our online store and area retailers in the Midwest and Upper Northwest. We have a partnership with Animal Folks MN who we have chosen as a charitable partner who we admire for the work they do.

Misty Higgins, Heartfelt Blooms

A little about me: I am a believer, a wife and a mom of two awesome kiddos. I work in the corporate world but was craving a creative outlet. I've dabbled in interior design but I found I was most at peace and in the zone when creating felt flowers so I opened up a little shop called Heartfelt Blooms. I'm a perfectionist at heart and it's definitely reflected in my work.
