About Me

My name is Sue and I’m the owner and chief candlemaker at Bungalow Candle Studio. 

Sue Griffith Owner of and Candle Maker at Bungalow Candle Studio

Creating candles has brought me so much joy and a feeling of fulfillment.

I love when someone opens a candle that reminds them of a great memory or when they find that perfect scent for someone they care about.

People ask how I got started and I just have to smile and shake my head because it still feels a bit unbelievable. 

Bungalow Candle Studio started in my small apartment with a candle kit I bought online for $100.

It wasn’t that I was unhappy at my current job. But I was feeling the urge for something more—something that would bring me more purpose. 

I had no idea what that might be, but I distinctly remember sitting in my room knowing I needed a change. The thought of candle making seemed to come out of nowhere—like divine inspiration—and I ran with it! 

Have you ever felt that way? Ready for something new and meaningful?

This journey began in 2020 and within 6 months, this “hobby” was actually paying the bills. I knew I needed to go all in, but that was scary! 

My encouragement came from my two sons. They are both very ambitious—they encouraged and motivated me to take the next step. I remember them saying, “Mom—when you are passionate about something you go all in—no plan B!”

And that’s what I did. I quit my accounting job, trusted myself, and put one foot in front of the other.

It wasn’t easy and I had plenty of those what-did-I-just-do moments. But it has been oh so worth it. Even through moments of doubt I knew I was going to make it work—with integrity, without compromising who I was and what I value.

And I haven’t looked back since! 

It’s made me realize that you can do anything you put your mind to—no matter your age or situation.

I’m finally doing something that just feels right.
