Etsy Artist Feature- LoveLeeSoaps

Of course you can find an abundance of soap on Etsy, but is it this sweet? I doubt it. LoveLeeSoaps has some (if not THE) coolest soaps I have ever seen. From caterpillars to poop to icecream cones and everything in between she give soap a fresh new face. These aren't your typical soap bars. We have interviewed Leeana owner of LoveLeeSoaps about some of her faves, her tips for you, and some other interesting questions. With over 3,000 sales her shop is booming and it's easy to see why!

What's your name?
Leeana Provan

Where do you call home?
Daytona Beach, Fl

How did you get started in soap making?
My obsession with soap making started awhile back when me and my mom went to our local craft store. I decided to pick up a soap kit and try it out. I brought it home and immediately fell in love! I made soap as often as I could. I researched and read books which helped me learn more and more.

What is your favorite soap that you make?
My favorite soap that I make is the Sweet Pink Sugar Cupcake Bar because it smells so good!

Who/what inspires you?
I love working with fun shapes and bright colors!

You have some very cool soaps, what is your best seller?
My best seller would have to be the new Blue Bird Nest Soap Set.

Any places other than Etsy where you sell your soap?
Right now I am currently only selling my products on Etsy.

What are your tips for Etsy sellers both the newer ones and the established ones?
Never give up. All things are possible. Its definitely true that when one door closes another one opens but only if you think positive and make it happen. If something is not working, figure out how to change things so it does work. You really have to live and breathe whatever your passion is. You have to think outside the box. Promote in the forums always and keep working on pictures. Also the more you update your shop and relist items, the more attention it will get.

Additional comments: Thank you so much for the interview and I hope everyone likes my
products! If you have any questions feel free to contact me at LoveLeeSoaps [!at]
