fire starters round 2

So did a test burn and it worked pretty good. The key is to get more stuff around the wick that catches on fire so I really need to work on filling up the molds more with mountain findings in the future. (second picture bottom right is the one in the fire place pictures)
Finally got most of my candle making stuff out so I am working on two Apple square pillars as I write this :)

testing making Fire Starters

So now that I live in the land of fire places I decided it was time to start working on making Fire Starters. These are a great way to use up extra wax I have around.
So mission one was to head up to the mountains to collect things to put into making these such as pine cones, dry leaves, pine needles and such. I borrowed my niece and two nephews to help me collect everything I could and they had fun putting all the stuff in their buckets.

Well round 1 was just a fast test to see how these things worked so I didn't want to waste very much of the mountain stuff we collected but you get the point. Still have to do a fire place test to see how they work then I will try to make a pretty one next. So check back :)

last minute candles

2 Blueberry Cobbler, 6 Pink Sugar, 4 Freesia, 1 White Plum Chutney, 1 Passion Fruit
in the front Country Berry Hot Cakes, Cherry Cola

Just finished up last minute candle orders from my regular clients. Everyone is trying to get stocked up on their candles before I head out of state. Packed up soap molds and most of the candle molds today, and the rest I will get packed Monday night. Few more wax melt orders to get packaged and I should be done with production. I will still be shipping out soaps till the last minute that will be the last box I pack and the first I unpack when I get to Colorado.
I will have a 3-4 day shipping delay on orders around Nov 18 so please plan accordingly.
