A great decoration, this sign is crafted from wood, painted with polka dot trim designs, and detailed with distressing giving it a vintage feel. The phrase "Life Isn't About Waiting For The Storm To Pass. It's About Learning To Dance In The Rain. - Vivian Greene" is painted onto the box making it a great decoration for daily motivation. The thickness of the box means it can be hung on a wall or left freestanding on a window sill or table top.
As a young adult, Kathy Phillips worked with her mother managing a combination gift shop and art studio for ten years. As a buyer for her mother's stores, she gained exposure to the wholesale market. With that experience, she had an idea and began manufacturing the candle box in her basement. HEr production line consisted of rain gutters used as stain troughs. she used a wood rasp to round the corners of her wood. She attended local craft shows to sell her product. That was before 1997. Then in 1997 she exhibited at her first trade show and took orders for $85,000. With orders she didn't know how she would fulfill, the single mom of two went to the bank and took our her first loan. Today, Kathy employs over 100 people in Lancaster PA. She has surrounded herself with wonderful operational and exceptional service talent so she can focus on product development.
