Artisan of the Week, Erica of Moon's Harvest.

This week we have the lovely Erica from Moon's Harvest to tell us a little about why she loves to make the gorgeous bath and body products that she sells. The site has a beautiful Gift Section where you will find a whole range of great goodies including a Valentines day trio. Not only does Erica make these items for you to use and give as gifts, but also she makes goods for your pets in her PYP collection.

1. Hello Erica, Could you please introduce us to who you are and what you do?

Hi, my name is Erica Moon. I am 28 years old and am a Partner of the company Moon's Harvest which we started over 7 years ago. We work around the clock it seems, creating wonderful handmade bath and body products for women, men, children and their pets.

2. What led you to take up your craft?

We love animals and we started out with pet products because one of our dogs was allergic to everything on the market. We needed an alternative to the chemical ingredients that are found in commercial beauty products for pets. We loved them so much that we were using the products ourselves. Therefore human products were suddenly in the making.

3. Which part of your work do you most enjoy?

I love researching the internet for relevant information, finding the latest trends in beauty and cosmetics, and experimenting with the results that result in a great new product.

Which part do you find hardest?

Names for our products especially the bath bombs. We name our bath bombs after girls names
from the 80's and quite often we get stumped.

5. Where do you hope to be in 1 year’s time?

Our goal is to have a brick and mortar store of our own by the fall.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

If you are going to do something, do it all the way.

7.Name other artisans sites/shops would you recommend are worth a visit?

Micky Byrd has a beautiful website and products. Nahia Creations a husband and wife team.

What is your favourite sandwich filling?

I love a big fat Rueben Sandwich

Thank you Erica! I hope your plans for a bricks an Mortar store work out well. As a self confessed chocoholic your Diva chocolate covered cherry bath bomb is calling me! Time for a bath I think.
