About PPC Handmade
Thank you for visiting PPC Handmade, a Paw Print Creations LLC company.
We are a small family business located in Mount Morris, a small town in Michigan. We take pride in our handmade products. Our soaps are made in small batches, and our wood craft and pet pampering products are made by hand. We do not outsource our products. They are all made with love right here in Michigan.
Our company name Paw Print Creations LLC has a funny story attached to it. We have a cat named Sophie that likes to be part of everything and she thinks she should put her input in as well. She sure did one day. We had just finished cutting the loaf of soap and the soap bars were still kind of soft.
She decided to jump up on the table and of course some of the soap bars fell over. By time we saw what had happen, it was too late. She had already walked across the table and her little paws had made paw prints on a couple of the soap bars. We had not decided on a company name yet at that time. So, at that moment we decided on Paw Print Creations and we call our crazy cat our CEO lol.
Our Handmade Soaps
We started making handmade natural soaps as a hobby in beginning of 2018. It was a fun hobby and we experimented with many different types of oil combinations along with adding butters and other ingredients. It took many trials and errors before deciding on our current recipe. We do not test our products on animals, but our family and friends love to try our new soaps. Our products contain earth friendly ingredients and natural exfoliators. Examples of an earth friendly product are goats’ milk, coconut milk, olive oil and shea butter. Examples of natural exfoliators are calendula petals and lavender buds. We use natural ingredients in our soaps and environmentally friendly packaging.

Our molds are handmade as well. We tried a couple store bought ones, but they did not seem to hold up as well as our own handmade ones. We are a handmade company after all.
Many of our family and friends just loved our soaps so much so we decided to sell our soaps at local craft shows. We received so many positive feedback’s and comments at those shows that we decided to make our little hobby into a small family business under Paw Print Creations LLC. The next step was creating a website and selling online.
We have extended our product line to include pet pampering and holiday craft products. These products are not soap which we might add later. Our pet pampering and holiday craft products are still in the beginning stages but many more will be added as we grow. Check out the custom dog house RV camper. Our dog has her own little RV parked next to our RV and she gets so many compliments. What dog has her own RV, she sure is spoiled!
We love what we do, and we love to share our products. It is so much fun seeing the changes in our products from not just the recipe but just the “look”. We still have the first soap we made, and it is amazing how much different our soaps look now. Our first soap bars lathered great but just did not look up to standard I guess. They say more you practice, the better you will be at it. So that is our motto.
Summer 2019 we will start selling our products at three local businesses in Grand Blanc, Caseville and Clio, Michigan. I hope you will check out our products either online or in one of the stores. We are growing slowly. That is our story. We would love to hear your feedback.
