Judy Kelly and Deanna Leslie have been dear friends for a very long time. Over 25 years to be exact. It has been a creative and soul-filled journey from the start. Using the base model of a create-your-own candle business that Judy had built when she lived in Southern California, Judy and Deanna put their heads and hearts together and expanded the vision to craft a truly unique retail experience which opened its doors in September 2017. Creating was the foundation for the experience they wanted to share, and beautiful downtown Ogden was just the place to do it.

Getting Around
In general having a car is probably the best way to get around in Ogden. Both Uber and Lyft also have a good presence in the area and their prices are very competitive. Bikes are also a good option if you have one, but be sure to have a good bike lock as well. If you need to venture further using public transportation. Front runner is a train that can take you as far south as Provo. Front Runner also connects to TRAX, Salt Lake City's light tail system, that runs across town as well as to and from the airport.

Robert Smithson's earthwork Spiral Jetty (1970) is located at Rozel Point peninsula on the northeastern shore of Great Salt Lake. Using over six thousand tons of black basalt rocks and earth from the site, Smithson formed a coil 1,500 feet long and 15 feet wide that winds counterclockwise off the shore into the water. In 1999, through the generosity of the artist Nancy Holt, Smithson’s wife, and the Estate of Robert Smithson, the artwork was donated to Dia Art Foundation. Dia is proud to be the owner and steward of Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty. https://www.diaart.org/visit/visit/robert-smithson-spiral-jetty
