Kate Dobson
Here is Kate pretending to make candles. Not pictured: J.D.

JD and Kate Dobson are humor writers and candlemakers. We are married (to each other) and live in St. Louis, Missouri, where we moved to pursue the American dream of finding excitement, adventure and opportunity in the untamed west, like Daniel Boone, or Alferd Packer.

All of our candles are hand-poured in small batches. They have been featured by media outlets including CBS News, The Washington Post, The Wall Street JournalCBC News, PopSugar, BuzzFeed and, for some reason, Yahoo! Finance. In our former lives, Kate was a comics editor for a major newspaper, and J.D. worked in politics and then PR. J.D. pours the candles while Kate packs them and designs the labels, and we both write the label copy. All of our products are also available on Etsy and Amazon.
