2 Wyrd Sisters
We’re a little company making bath and body stuff to make you feel and smell delicious. Everything is as close to organic as I can get and made in small batches in my kitchen with love and care.
The way I see my products is if I wouldn’t eat them, or at least taste them, I won’t sell them to you.
We sell bath salts, salt/sugar scrubs, lip balms, bath fizzies, massage bars, lotions, body sprays, hand sanitizers, and massage oils, and anything else that pops into my tiny little mind. Or anything that you, my friends would like me to concoct for you.

Matthew Holtmeier is an artist and woodworker crafting under the name Gathering Splinters. His artistry and craftsmanship are heavily influenced by his love of all things fantasy and many hours spent playing roleplaying games, such as Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder. These interests are reflected in his artwork, which runs from the cartoonish to the abstract, oftentimes leaving itself open to multiple interpretations along the way. Markers and ink are his favored medium since they lend themselves well to heavy lines and bold colors.
He has also brought his love of gaming into his woodworking, crafting accessories for gamers including dice trays and boxes. Aside from functionality and durability, an emphasis on beauty and artistry has been a main focus.
