barking & blogging

Welcome to Nelli Designs new website!

First, we must, must, must give a BIG THANK YOU to a few people who made this possible…..

Molly Pavolino of PetWebPro for her brilliance in design and internet programming.  To say she is a life-saver would be understating her value in this process.  Without her (and her unwavering patience), we would not have the business we have today.  Molly has been an integral part of our growth, and we could not ask for a better “team member”!

Sarah Beth Ernhart of Sarah Beth Photography for her creative eye behind the lens, and the manipulation of lighting that best complimented Nelli and I ~ Thank You for making us look 5-years younger (that’s 35 in Nelli’s case)!  We look forward to tapping into Sarah’s photographic genius more in the coming months as as we continue to improve our site and shopping experience for you.

Tom…..our behind the scenes “business partner” who makes this all possible!  Husband and Nelli’s “dad” who also at times is our bookkeeper, inventory manager, candle pourer, sales rep, shoulder to cry on….his patience and support of this business has been most incredible.  And Nelli and I are most grateful to share this business experience these past five years with Tom ~ but mostly, for me, the last 21 years of marriage that welcomed Maggie and Nelli into our lives and provided the inspiration to begin this unplanned business endeavor.

Thank you, also, everyone who has purchased a candle from us in the last five years ~ without you, we would not be in business today, or able to donate to the causes we value.  SO THANK YOU!!


Also want to welcome you to our first Blog Page…after five years, and encouragement from others, we have decided to give this a try.  While candles are our main thing, we also have a lot up our sleeves (ok..and paws).  We hope you come along with us….read, comment, ask questions, share opinions, share insights to the topics we talk about and, of course, we hope you tell your friends about this page; after all, the more the merrier, as they say.

While we have a topic in mind for our first “official” blog post, it is still being “finessed”, if you will.  So stay tuned….there’s lots more to come.  

We look forward to enjoying this ride with all of you!

  1. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
