About Me

I started making candles when a friend showed me how. I found his candles to be very boring – just plain old Mason jars. I decided to take it a step further and tried making them to match their scent: blueberry muffin shaped candles with the scent of real blueberries, cola in an old-fashioned Coke glass and more! People loved the unique, realistic look and scent of my candles, so I took a chance and started my own business right in my own kitchen: now known as Calico Creations!

Many people ask why I chose the name Calico Creations, and it’s simple: I’m a very superstitious person! As a little girl, I grew up in Hocking County in Washington Township on Calico Ridge. Eighteen years ago, I came back to Ohio with my husband and three boys. We decided to settle here and bought property in Holmes County in Washington Township on Calico Road. Because of that, I knew that the business name had to have Calico in it – hence Calico Creations!


Here are some of the most frequent questions that I have received to help you through your Calico Creation experience!

Q: How much are the shipping costs?  Some of these candles look like they are heavy!

A: They can be a bit heavy, but I offer absolutely free shipping on every single item in the inventory.  As long as you shop here you will never pay a dime towards shipping fees.

Q: What is your return policy?

A: Well this is something I am hoping that I do not encounter all that often.  Obviously, I want everyone’s experience to be fantastic.  In that light, I have decided that as long as you return an unused product in its original packaging you will receive a 100% full refund.
