Manistee, Michigan
United States

Hi my name is Heather Krajkiewcz I'm the maker/owner of Peachyfrog.

I was born in Manistee, Mi on February 2nd 1988. I've spent most of my life in Manistee, MI and consider this my hometown. Growing up here I was able to experience some of the things that make this area truly beautiful. This is also where I met my Husband, Peter Krajkiewcz, we got married on June 8th 2019. Together we enjoy the outdoors including going on hiking trails, enjoying our beautiful Lake Michigan beaches, going camping, sitting around a nice relaxing campfire, taking a day to kayak the local Rivers and gardening in the summer. I have owned many animals in my life, mostly cats & dogs but also I've had aquariums in the past. We currently have 2 cats, Novella and Safari. We also have 2 dogs, Khali & Mario. We do not have any children yet, it's in our plans for the future. We share a love for delicious food & cooking together. I enjoy baking & trying new Recipes in my free time. I actually made our own cake to cut & a total of 160 cupcakes for our wedding, along with many of the decorations. Which brings me to the fact that I'm a big do it yourself type of person. This includes Repairs, Remodeling & updates to our home. I am a part time Laundry Attendant who is looking to expand on my ability to work hard & to be my own boss. My desire to eventually start a family, be a work at home mom and reach my true potential has lead me on this business journey.

An adventure to discover all that was already in me and turn it into something bigger than myself.

We are a small Michigan based, online business that is ran by myself with the assistance of my husband. Together we tackle all of the jobs of our small business including creating our shop, website, ads, ordering supplies, bookkeeping. Then there's the fun stuff of visualizing new products, creating our handcrafted offerings and fulfilling customer orders.

I came up with the concept of our candle business in the winter of 2017. After a couple of months pondering many ideas, possibilities and asking myself about my talents & skills...

That same year, I was gifted a handcrafted soy candle for Christmas.  It made me think back to childhood when we would melt wax from old candles on the stove.  We would use a pot of water and make a homemade tinfoil bowl to hold the wax, similar to a double boiler.  It was a good memory and the feelings attached to it, along with a great gift that started it all.

Peachyfrog was legally established in January 2019. It had been a long time in the making, with many obstacles and struggles between 2017 - 2020. It wasn't until January 2020 that I launched our website and made our business officially open for public sales. I created my own business with the desire to become completely financially independent and to accomplish my dreams. I also wanted the ability to utilize my full potential and do something I love which turns out to be making candles and other handmade items!
