Heidi Mueller, founder of Excelsior Candle Co. and co-founder of Founders Co., wanted to honor her mother, Marilyn, who unexpectedly passed away in 2021. A lover of reading and storytelling, Marilyn wrote two children’s books that were never published during her lifetime. Publish Her partnered with Heidi to create two journals that feature Marilyn’s “Giant Sunflowers” story, plus more than 100 journal pages, which Heidi hopes will inspire you to read, write and tell the stories that are in your heart.
These journals are available at Founders Co., 3937 Market Street in Edina, Minnesota, and online in the Publish Her Bookstore.
About Excelsior Candle Co. and Founders Co.
Excelsior Candle Co. founder Heidi Mueller believes the right scent can make everyday moments extraordinary. Candles are crafted with renewable, biodegradable soy wax, scented with natural essential oils and fragrance blends, and are phthalate- and paraben-free. Batch made in Minnesota, each candle is hand poured into a recyclable and reusable container and finished with a lead-free cotton wick or wood wick.
Founders Co. co-founders Brittany and Debbie Travis, Heidi Mueller and Jordyn DiOrio Polski believe in the collaborative power of entrepreneurs, makers, creators and builders. The collective is made up of founders of all genders, ethnicities and ages, and in various industries, who share a passion for craft, community and innovation.
