~Interview with Spice of Life~
Tell us about yourself?
I’m a mom of 5 crazy kids &have been married to a really cool guy for 12 years. I was born & raised in Alaska, I have lived there my entire life. I am supper crafty artsy fartsy. I have made and sold crochet hats, scarves & sweaters. Handmade soap, lotions & bath products. Totes, purses, laptop bags & yoga mat bags. Now I’m on to spice kits. One reoccurring theme with my projects has always been natural, organic, vegan & Eco friendly. I’ve always got my husband’s head spinning with all of my crafty stuff piling up around the house.
What inspired you to start your shop, Spice of Life?
I have had other Etsy shops before Spice of Life. My original shop was started out of need to pass my lovelies on to someone that could use them. My family was drowning in a sea of handmade bits and pieces. Bags & hats where attacking from closet shelves & drawers where overflowing , it had to go for the greater good . My spice shop is just fun, a way for me to stay out of the corporate world (blah). I went to school to be a Laboratory Technician & then later a Real Estate Agent. Both very creatively dry not for me!!!! All I could think about while at work was patters, colors and what cool things I could be making if not for the darn lab coat.
What is your favorite spice to use while cooking?
My all time favorite spice is basil, lots of basil. I have this awesome Tomato Basil Penne Pasta that I make YUMMY!
5 Word to describe yourself?
Spice of Life sent me their Sml. Italian Spice kit to review. The spices included were: Basil, Italian Seasoning, Garlic Bread Seasoning, Minced Garlic, Italian Sausage Seasoning, and Italian Dressing Seasoning. I haven't had the time to cook with them all, however, I did taste them all. I made spaghetti the other day and I used the Italian Sausage seasoning to cook the sausage. I then added some Italian seasoning and Basil to the sauce. Everything turned out wonderfully! I was very pleased with the flavor. The packaging that it was sent in was very attractive as well!
Some other items I love from Spice of Life:
This kit is magnetic which is great because you can just stick them on the fridge making it a great space-saver option.
Included in this kit:
-Fried Chicken Rub
These seasonings are great for grilling and makes a wonderful Christmas gift.
With the cold weather upon us tea is a wonderful thing to have around the house. I don't know about you but at night when I'm reading a book I love love love to drink a warm cup of tea! These teas are naturally grown and the kit contains:
-French Blue Lavander
-Orange Pekoe Tea
All of Spice of Life's products are naturally grown which is what I love the most!
Spice of Life is going to give one of my lucky winners a Small Magnetized Italian Spice Kit of their own which includes: Basil, Italian Seasoning, Garlic Bread Seasoning, Minced Garlic, Italian Sausage Seasoning, and Italian Dressing Seasoning!
