She makes candles, he repairs bicycles, she builds websites, he paints pictures, he runs (half)marathons, she also likes knitting and tatting and they both live in Port Ellen. Do you have a clue already? This post is about Lesley Lutomski, wife of Jim Lutomski of whom I wrote a while back. I was triggered to write this post by an ad in last week's Ileach where I noticed a new website with a funny name I hadn't seen before. Time for a wee introduction:
I'm Lesley Lutomski and I would like to welcome you to the only Web site I know which offers Web design services and hand-made candles. I live in Port Ellen, on the Isle of Islay in the Hebrides, where it has long been considered normal for folk to have more than one occupation. At first glance, Web design and candle-making may appear to be very different skills, but they have certain things in common. Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by colours, shapes and patterns, and these are important considerations in both parts of my business.
Lesley builds websites for starting and growing businesses on Islay and so far she created sites for Made on Islay Craft Markets, Becky Williamson, Islay and Jura Credit Union and for her husband Jim Lutomski to promote his art and bicycle shop. I was impressed to see all the images of the candles she made from Beeswax, Palm Wax, Paraffin Wax and Soy Wax. Lesley sells her candles on the Made on Islay markets.
