Day 5: Middle Brained Canvas

The creator behind Middle Brained Canvas was always an artist at heart, but when Tristyn became a stay-at-home mom of two littles, she also became an avid sewer. Now she happily spends each day shaping new creative ideas into reality in her home studio in Idaho, including coasters, bowls and bags.

Day 4: ManyMinis

Glassblower Melissa Boyle started out as a creative writer and poet. When she started creating glass art, she discovered her true calling was not as a writer but as a storyteller. Today, every piece she forms at ManyMinis has a story, told somewhere between the cold glass and the hot flame.


Day 4 Surprise: Teaspressa

Allison DeVane has always loved coffee, but coffee never liked her back. So she invented a tea that you could brew like coffee. Soon, Allison had the opportunity to pitch Teaspressa- a play on tea + espresso - on Shark Tank, then opened the first Teaspressa store, bringing her coffee-inspired tea and beautiful branding to thousands of customers. 


Day 3: Tiny Bandit

For Heather Beaudoin, bohemian isn't a trend, it’s her way of life. Today, her company Tiny Bandit produces high-grade clean burning candles that are small-batch poured using a 100% natural non-GMO coconut wax blend and lead free braided cotton wicks with essential and perfume oil blends.
