Coconut wax is made through a cold-pressed process from the meat of the coconut. This type of wax has many benefits. One of the many is it holds a higher fragrance volume than other natural waxes. However, coconut wax is very soft (similar to coconut oil at room temp). In ScentSation candle making process, both coconut and soy wax are combined to allow for more fragrance oil than just a soy candle, but to give the candles body or firmness. If only coconut wax was used, it wouldn’t hold its shape. Soy wax has a lower fragrance load than coconut oil. This fierce combination of coconut and soy wax is used because coconut wax is known to have a high fragrance load, but it is very soft (again similar to coconut oil) so it’s combined with soy wax to give the candle body.
Every Coconut and Soy candle is hand poured in Charlotte, Michigan using a creamy fusion of coconut and soy wax that’s blended in house. The unique fragrances including Blueberry Bliss, Luminous Lilac, Strawberry Sublime, Vanilla Vice, Frankincense Phantasia, Lavender Starlight, and Legendary LemonBerry have an amazing scent throw. The 9 ounce candles have an approximate burn time of nearly 80 hours. These premium candles with a combination of coconut wax and soy wax are highly scented, slow burning candles that everyone enjoys!

The glass bottle feeders and wind chimes are embellished with colored wire and charms. Although designs are similar, no two are exactly alike. Each glass feeder or wind chime is hand-painted, making each one slightly unique. They are painted to order using enamel glass paint and air dried for 24 hours, then heat set. Hand-painted items should be hand washed with a soft cloth to preserve the illustrations. They make great gifts and may be personalized with names and/or dates. If your purchase is a gift, the artisan is happy to include a gift card with your personal message.

Tom really loves shooting picture around Lake Superior because of the seasons and weather which makes for great photography that leads to color photography. The type of high resolution color prints produced are colorful because more color techniques are added to the image to bring out colors and especially more detail to every print.
The photography by Tom Kelly is intended to evoke memories for people who travel through and around Michigan. When you view the images of the beaches, the islands, the tall beach grass, or the waves on Lake Superior, you may remember a warm place where you or you family stopped to picnic or had a beach fire at sunset. Those are wonderful memories on Lake Superior.
The son of a physics professor and art teacher, Tom was born in Marquette Michigan and always exposed to arts, crafts and the wilderness of Michigan Upper Peninsula. At the age of twelve, Tom was introduced to a black and white darkroom and was immediately captivated by the magic that took place, processing film and producing a finished print.
Years later, Tom now has the the experience of black and white, color printing, lab work and now the digital age of photography. After photography and business school, Tom started a photographic business, working with the Ann Arbor Art Association teaching artists how to shoot slides of their art work to present to galleries.
Tom’s next venture was Aerial photography – up in the sky, taking pictures of land development, progress shots of construction projects and photos for realtors needing aerial shots of hard to see homes. It was 1982 when Tom took on a new challenge to aerial photograph his favorite football team the Wolverines of the University of Michigan and the Michigan Football Stadium from the air. Many of these photos would end up being used in Toms stock photo shop. After that, Tom then spent some time in the biomedical department of the University of Michigan doing both camera and lab work.
Below is just a sample of the Photography by Tom Kelly offerings….

PantsUp keeps your pants from sliding down without the use of traditional suspenders. If you have the same problem as many other men…
- Shrinking butt
- Growing middle
- Pants won’t stay up
- Shirt won’t stay tucked in
Dean Gilbert Enterprises designed and created the PantsUp device to meet needs. PantsUp was born when Dean had to find a way to keep his pants from sliding down over his straight hips while on his feet all day. He spent months finding the right size, shape, and materials for the device. The PantsUp accessories enable movement with confidence. The PantsUp devices attach to any tee shirt at the desired height and can be adjusted. They take up very little room and no one knows you are wearing them. They are just like invisible suspenders! You receive a pair of PantsUp that when attached to your shirt, form a ledge that supports your belt. Dean decided that once he had perfected the design others could benefit. The public has agreed and orders came flying in. The patent pending PantsUp devices are adaptable, adjustable, comfortable, practical, affordable, and immensely helpful. As one customer put it: “I have not seen anything else like it.” This is a new suspenders alternative for others facing the constant battle with sliding slacks!

The owner of Twirling Frog Studio, Anne Rogers, has been creating fused glass art for 15 years. Each design is unique and hand crafted by Anne. Being born and raised in Michigan, she draws inspiration from the beautiful and majestic landscape of Michigan.
These fused glass art pieces are 100% glass. A finely ground glass powder is used to manipulate the shape of each design in the piece. Each sheet of glass is hand selected for color to achieve the final product. The glass is hand cut and layered then placed in a kiln and fired for about twenty four hours. Depending on the end product, it can go into the kiln up to five times to reach the final outcome.
Each fused glass art piece is unique and no two are exactly alike. The pieces are functional and food safe, however are not dishwasher, microwave oven, or oven safe. They are also a perfect decorative piece of art to display on a table or countertop.
