?Scent + Soy by Anita Pettigrew?

After being a stay at home Gigi for the past 3 years, I knew my grandson would be going to full time preschool and I would have a lot of free time on my hands. I bought a candle making kit in January and made a few candles and fell in love with it. I read everything I could get my hands on, joined lots of candle making groups on Facebook and did tons of testing fragrances and wicks. I was obsessed...pretty sure I was driving my husband crazy!!! By the end of February I created a Facebook page and put my candles out there to see what happened. The response was a bit overwhelming. At first I couldn't keep up with the demand. I invested in some equipment, signed up for some spring craft shows and here I am...just doing what I love.
Locally made in Mount Carmel, IL. Be sure to stop in soon to try out our new candles by @scentnsoy !

John & Lisa Chaddock always enjoyed home improvement projects, but while raising a family, hobbies needed to take a back seat. Fast forward; kids grow up & a new chapter in life was born. We share a passion to be creative and were searching for something that we could share as a couple. Together, we have such fun going to auctions, flea markets, and junk stores, looking for pieces that need a little love.

So, REmagined was born. We REpurpose, REcycle, and REstore vintage furniture and accessories. John is largely behind the scenes, making sure old wood pieces are structurally sound, old drawers slide and items are repurposed (he rarely throws anything away!). Lisa then takes over as the painter and lover of blingy hardware. We are a team and bounce creative ideas back and forth constantly. John's favorite part is to REpurpose something that was headed to the trash pile. Beds to benches or old radios to bar carts. Lisa's favorite thing is to be inspired by hardware. She often decides on paint colors based on a piece of hardware. Lisa stated that "I'm really a minimalist in my own home. I encourage people to purchase something that they love and decorate a room around it. My living room was inspired by a black buffet that has blingy hardware!"

Over the years, we've been blessed with meeting some amazing people who love what we do. Some of them have become dear friends. We feel so fortunate to be able to share our passion with others!
