Welcome. I’m Kiera Fogg, proud mama of five, believer in miracles, and the creator of Little Box of Rocks™.
Ever since I was a little girl, spending many of my summers dreaming and exploring deep in Canada’s wilderness, I was fascinated by nature’s power to uplift and enlighten. For me, being immersed in Northern Ontario’s vast, rocky terrain searching for amethyst and fool’s gold was what allowed me to dream. It was a place where I could clear my thoughts and become still and centered in the presence of God – a place where I was deeply inspired.
While selling rock bouquets is certainly unconventional, for me it feels quite natural. My father, an avid fisherman, camper, and explorer extraordinaire, instilled a love of rocks in me from an early age. Many of my summers were spent with him exploring the wilderness “panning for gold,” or finding slivers of pyrite in remote streams. He’s the one who brought to my attention the fact that rocks hold a quiet but beautiful significance. He’d pick them up and contemplate how old they were: Two billion years? Four billion? Then he’d move on to discussing what was more significant given our respective life spans: us or the rock? His humble take on life has never left me, which is probably why I developed a deep love of crystals as an adult.
My mother instilled a different, but equally important value in me: the value of inspiration. The queen of gift-giving and a true entrepreneurial superstar, my mother built an enormously successful gift business out of her home – starting at a time when we couldn’t afford to pay our light bill. I literally watched her gift her way out of an unsteady, lacking situation, into one of inner and outer abundance, while through her words and actions, inspiring thousands of women across the country to do the same. It was my mother who showed me that a few simple words of encouragement can truly change everything.
Connection is a deeply important aspect of my own wellness practice. When I am connected to others, I feel connected to God. I wanted to create a company that was built on the principle of inspiration, creating significant moments of connection between people.
“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” – Luke 6:38
What emerged was the crystal bouquet: a unique inspirational gift that uses crystals as little messengers for our well-wishes. I believe that giving is the act through which connection occurs. When we lovingly give even the smallest things – a smile, a kind word, our time and attention – it can lead to the most meaningful moments in our lives. My ultimate hope is that our bouquets help you and your recipient to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Life is a miracle and it should be celebrated. Join us in our mission to inspire and send the bouquet that lives forever™.
