As the parents of three beautiful children, wellness has become an integral part of our lives. We became members of Young Living as a part of our "Know better, Do better" approach and to use more natural products for ourselves and our children. In addition to incorporating Young Living Essential Oils into our daily routine, we utilize many of their other products such as children's MightyVites, bath gel, shampoo, and other personal care items, as well as supplements, NingXia®Red beverages, cleaning supplies and several other safe and effective products. Once we saw the benefits these products brought to our family, it became our mission to share them with others. It has been such a blessing to watch other families love the products and reap the same benefits from Young Living that ours has.
Established in 1924 as a family owned butcher shop in Milford, Massachusetts, the company pioneered the concept of home food delivery in the 1950’s as Hill Food Service. Today, Hill’s continues to thrive in a busy world where people are short on time yet not willing to compromise on quality when it comes to feeding their family!
In the Spring of 2013, Sailaja Joshi was on a mission to complete her baby registry in preparation for the arrival of her first child. Inline with her “library” themed baby shower, Sailaja went on the hunt to find books about Indian culture that she could share with her newborn daughter. Of the few books that spoke to her Indian heritage, Sailaja realized that none of these books took into account the developmental needs of her growing child. Recognizing this gap in children’s literature, the idea for Bharat Babies was born.

Making jigsaw puzzle art
Holyoke Puzzles grew out of Barbara Bitgood’s hobby of crafting unique hardwood puzzles for friends and family. As requests for custom puzzles started to come in, Barbara decided to turn her pastime into a business in 2013. Barbara designs, hand cuts and finishes each original wooden jigsaw puzzle in her workshop in Holyoke.
Specializing in designs that stand up as sculptural works of art when assembled, she begins by hand drawing a pattern. Whether an animal, mythical beast, machine, building or landscape scene, Barbara carefully selects hardwoods that will enhance the design and give it texture and presence. Maple, oak, walnut, shedua, padauk, ash, poplar, bloodwood and purpleheart are just some of the materials that she works with. Barbara then hand cuts the puzzle on a scroll saw and individually sands each piece. Puzzles receive a non-toxic finish and whimsical touches, including crystal eyes and wire antennae. The challenge of working with new designs and materials keeps the creative process forever fresh and exciting.
Holyoke Puzzles’ product line includes simple child-friendly designs, puzzles to challenge adults, wedding guest book puzzles, event commemorations, and educational geographic puzzles. Custom designs can be created based on customers’ photos or ideas. Barbara carefully sources her wood from reputable suppliers to ensure that it is sustainably harvested. She prefers non-toxic tung oil, mineral oil, and shellac finishes, ensuring that each puzzle has a beautiful finish to last for many years. Holyoke Puzzles products can be purchased online, at Overlook Farm in Westhampton, MA and at craft shows in western Massachusetts throughout the year.
