It is said that every man’s home is his castle…but isn’t really the queen that does the decorating? I know in our home the decorating, color schemes and placement of furniture is all mine. Don’t get me wrong my husband has impeccable taste…it is just something that I love to do and have fun doing it. Thank God, I found It’s Only Squash!

Of course, when I am done moving furniture, painting walls, hanging pictures and relocating every little thing…the only thing I can think of is resting. Thank God, I found It’s Only Squash!

AN INTERVIEW WITH IT’S ONLY SQUASH:

  • When did you start your business?Actually, I started my business in 1995, and over a period of time it has morphed from a floral design/business to what it is now, machine embroideries and bath products. I have always aspired to be an independent business owner, mainly, because I’ve never liked the idea of working my fingers to the bone for someone who never seems to appreciate my work enough to give me the raise and recognition that I’ve deserved. I’m happiest when working for myself.

  • What was the inspiration behind starting your business?
    I am an artsy/creative type person, and I’ve always loved making things to decorate my house with and for giving to others as gifts. People liked my gifts so much that they began asking if I sold them and requested them for purchase for either themselves or as gifts for others, and it became a continuous thing. From this, I began to enjoy the fruits of my handiwork, and this is where I am today– I absolutely LOVE what I do

  • Are you married, single, with kids, etc?
    I am married, and have been for the last 24 years, and my husband is the kind of man who is very supportive of basically everything that I do, in fact, he has even gotten business for me. I have a son, he’s 22, and he is very supportive as well.  They’ve often assisted me when I have multiple orders.

  • What is your favorite thing(s) about your business?
    My favorite part of my business is seeing how others respond to my ideas and creativity. I am BIG on presentation– I think it’s a very large part of my business. I put a lot of forethought and effort into how I’d like to finish off the finale of my creations. At showers, when someone pulls out a gift that I’ve done, there are a lot of oooo’s and aaaahhhhh’s from the package itself, and once they open the box or bag up, the gift itself is creatively settled into its packaging, when the gift is taken out there’s a lot of buzz that surrounds it, and I love it. Many times guests have asked the receiver who gave them that gift, and I have been contacted as a result of that. So these are just a few of my favorite things associated with my business.

  • I hear you have a fun promotion in the works for The IE Mommy readers, can you tell us about it?
    I am working on a great idea for a promotion. I’m not sure as to how it’s going to be implemented, I sort of just marinading on it right now. However, I can say this, I think it will be a creative and enjoyable opportunity for the IE mommy readers, and I think that others will enjoy it too. So I encourage everyone to stay tuned, cause I think you are  all gonna love it!

  • A little bird told the IE Mommy that you are also planning to do a wonderful giveaway at your site soon, is that true?
    I am going to promote a give-a-way to help my site soon, that too is in the makings. I want this to be something memorable, and something that the winner will be very happy to receive. So stay tuned and keep checking It’s Only Squash, I think it’ll be worth your while.

PRODUCT REVIEW:

I received a yummy spa essentials package to review. Complete with a little white ribbon bow it had a very sweet presentation. Inside were a a couple of yummy goodies that any mommy would love to use.

I received a jar of the Raw Sugar and Peppermint Foot Scrub and a heavenly smelling jar of the Vanilla Coconut Butter Creams.

I was very excited to try these wonderful products. I wrangled some “me” time and set off to the bathroom where I indulged in a moment of spa time with my wonderful new goodies.

They smelled wonderful, were easy to use and left my feet feeling refreshed and sensational. I’d recommend any mom or woman to click over to It’s Just Squash and get a little something to pamper herself.

There are so many wonderful products to sample and enjoy…you could literally be there for a while. I found a gorgeous candle and a fabulous bath salt that I can’t wait to try….my birthday is coming soon…you know I’ll have to send the hubby to Yvonne at It’s Only Squash!
