It's Women Crush Wednesday and it’s time to shine a spotlight on all the amazing things women are doing, creating and building in this world!
Today’s I See You® blog features the kind and generous Shelia Horvath, owner of HeavenlyTreats4U!
Shelia is all about WOW’ing her customers with her creations that cultivate unique moments of appreciation, connection and love.
As someone who was in charge of the gifting ministry at her church and had previous experience in gift basket creations, she quickly learned that her gift baskets sparked the attention of those in the community and ultimately triggered her to create her business in literally one night.
You have to check out her website that has everything from her signature guitar case gift box that features the sweet, savory treats and goodies found in Nashville, to little “attention getting” monthly marketing gifts.
From relocation, to her husbands battle with cancer, Shelia knows what it truly means to walk in faith and trust the timing of everything.
Now with four years under her belt in Nashville, she’s created a company that not only brings joy to her customers, she also uses her platform to curate baskets filled with products from businesses in her community for 12 years now.
This is exactly why we had to introduce y’all to Shelia. There are so many amazing women out there creating amazing companies and Shelia should be considered the gold standard!
Here’s a little more about Shelia in her own words!

We quickly learned Shelia will never be someone to boast about what she’s created and the magnitude of it.
Simply put, Shelia is awe-inspiring and a force to be reckoned with.
She is a successful entrepreneur, keynote speaker and now a published author!
Meeting Shelia was truly a treat (no pun intended)! Her gift baskets have captured all of the beauty and excitement that Nashville is fostering here in Music City.
