Meet The Maker

Hello, I'm April. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. 
I moved to Alberta in 2019, and after a crazy few years of being a caregiver and subsequently relinquishing that role once it became too dangerous for me; I started this business so I could stay home and make an income.
I am now expecting a baby in March 2024 with my boyfriend; something I never thought would happen to me. As of today (Jan 1, 2024), I am busy working on the soap shop, finishing up the nursery, and getting as many renos done on my house as I can before I get to meet my baby boy. I am looking forward to the future; with my new little family (I can't forget about my 3 cats and 2 dogs, so maybe more of a full house), and with this amazing business of mine.
Back in 2019, myself and my bonus mother devised a plan for all of the excess goat's milk from the farm. This allows me to be creative, pay my bills, and stay home so I could be my ex-husbands caregiver. I also get to milk the girls, and they give kisses.
Somehow, after only starting this business in 2020, I have been able to make a living and support my household. I thank all of my amazing customers (some have even turned into friends) for your continued support. This little business has saved our lives, and we are forever grateful for the community around us. It still feels surreal that this is what I'm lucky enough to do full-time; being creative for a living is extremely fulfilling.
I believe in using the best ingredients, and I am not a fan of artificial colourants when we have botanicals and clays that can be used. This is a philosophy that I utilize in a lot of my life; natural fibres, food made from scratch, and natural materials within my house wherever possible.

In my spare time I like to dye yarn, knit, crochet, paint, cook, garden, hike, road trip, play with my 2 dogs and 2 cats, travel around the world (at least, I did before Covid), and doing projects around the house. Occasionally I find some Prairie Giants, those photos are on my Instagram in my story highlights.

I am a ska/grunge/punk/reggae/dancehall kid at heart, with a serious love affair with 90's rock, hillbilly, storytelling rap, and Dolly Parton. I like going to karaoke nights, but I can't participate due to a traumatic incident in the late 2000's where a friend and myself were booed off stage during our Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song performance.
