The candles I make are a blend of paraffin and soy wax. The wick is made out of cotton and centered in the candle for even burning. Both paraffin and soy wax are eco friendly as they are biodegradable. The paraffin gives the pillar candle the stability it needs to stand without being in a container.

Items need a home

I have some items that I have listed on my artfire studio that need a new home.   They are getting tired of the scenery of my house and want to see what else is available in the world.   They are very nice candles.  They will be a great addition to any home and will fill your home full of a nice refreshing scent.  The candles will also add some color to any room.

I have rose scented candles that would be great in a bathroom while you are relaxing in the tub.  What a nice mood.  What more can you ask for besides having some rose petals floating in the tub.

Don't forget the lavender scented candles.  Lavender is a nice scent for relaxation.   It can have a calming affect. 

Check out the candles at my artfire shop.  There is something for everyone to enjoy.

I just listed some of my items on facebook shopping mall.  I didn't realize how much work it is.  The items cannot be imported from Artfire.  They have to be done manually.  If you have the items in an excel document or csv format, you can import them.  I don't know many people who do this or would want to.  Excel is not really supposed to be used for graphics.  It is a spreadsheet where you can enter data and do calculations. 

I am also going to be adding some new candles soon.  I just got a new shipment of scents and molds that I have been dying to try out.  There has been so much going on that I haven't had the time.  I did make something for my daughter the other day using the orange scent.  I didn't use much of it, but it was a strong scent.  It was very nice too.  It wasn't the strong, obnoxious kind of scent.  It was a strong, but pleasant scent.  Almost like you just cleaned your house with an orange scented cleaner.  I am curious on how this is going to work on a candle.  I think it would make a nice scented candle.

Pamper yourself

Soy candles are a type of candle that offers great benefits. They are made from from soybeans, which are a renewable resource, grown in the U.S.A. Soy wax is biodegradable, non-toxic (safe for children and pets), easily cleaned up with soap and water, and environmentally sensitive.

Soy wax is a very clean burning wax. Soy candles are all natural and do not contain any toxins, thus very little soot will come from them. Soy candles last 30 to 50 percent longer then traditional candles. This elegant 10.5oz 100% Soy candle will last about 70-75 hours.

This candle is heavily scented with a Fresh Cut Roses fragrance oil, and is hand-poured into heavy duty glass.

Ingredients: 100% soy wax, cotton wick, fragrance oil

You are purchasing ONE bottle of quality craft fragrance oils. This lovely oil is ideal for all kinds of soap making, wax candles, lotion making, bath bombs, perfume making, and potpourri. You will receive one bottle in the 2 oz size of SUMMER FLOWERS. Now you can have a wonderful summer garden all in one beautiful scent! Roses, marigolds, carnations, and water lilies make this an exquisite scent. Minor green ivy notes round out this fragrance and make it the perfect versatile floral. It does not get much better than this. This is potent and NOT diluted. All scents are true and smell just fantastic. This scent is EXTREMELY fragrant, very long lasting, and smells just OUT OF THIS WORLD! Oils are measured and packed by weight. Please do not waste your money on a big bottle of junk that is weak and completely ruins your crafting plans. ( Keep in mind that this oil is for crafting purposes where the end result is finished product. This oil is not to be applied directly to the skin right from the bottle or consumed internally.)

 Black Raspberry Vanilla Soap Bar

A delicious blend of Juicy Raspberries, Ripe Plums and Creamy Lucious Vanilla.
A Bath and Body Works scent.

My soaps are all handmade by scratch in my kitchen, made from quality natural oils, butters, botanicals and micas the old-fashioned way. Produced only in small quality controlled batches, cut and packaged by hand. Each soap is a little different and unique. All soaps are super-fatted with olive oil for extra moisturization.

Every soap comes to you wrapped in clear cello, tied with curl ribbon and labeled.

 * My handmade LAVENDER soap has a real "old timey" lavender smell. Lavender has been known for its' reputed calming & soothing effects. This soap has a soft & flowery notes to it. Usually a feminine scent.

* My vegan bars are made 1 batch at a time in my log cabin in the beautiful foothills of Maryland. My vegan bars are approxiately 5 oz in weight. I have been making soap for 10 years using the "hot process" to make my soaps. With the "cold process" method; you often have to wait up to a month to use your soap. The "hot process" speeds up this wait period; allowing you to use your soap sooner ~ which means your soap is fresher! There's nothing better than fresh soap!

* Being a vegetarian; I use no tallow, or harsh chemicals, only natural products I often grow myself, in my soap making. The only chemical in my soap is sodium hydroxide (lye) which you need to make bar soap.

Finally decided on fragrances

I finally decided on what fragrances to purchase.  I'm going to get orange, cherry, eucalyptus, hazelnut, jasmine, lilac, peppermint patty, spearmint & basil, citrus breeze, coconut and lilac.  There are a few others, but they will be a surprise.  I am excited about the fragrances, I can hardly wait to get them. 

Hopefully, I will have some new candles up with the new scents.  I don't know what kind I will make first or what color.  I will have to decide once I smell the scents.

Gurse is a combination of a purse and a gym bag. You can use it as a purse or gym bag. It is revisible so, if you don't what a bow with a plastic flower off white you can turn it inside out. The inside has two pockets on either side. It comes with a revisible drawstring laundry bag made out of the same material. It has a french seem down the side. With this being a cotton base material you can just throw your full laundry bag into the washer and wash as is. My total frustration when using the plastic laundry bags provided by said gyms or I have to bring is I can not just throw in as its already in a bag. I have stop in my busy day not once to unload the said bag into the washer but to unload the work out clothes from bag to washer but to dryer as well. This drops the stops down to only one stop instead of two. For a busy wife, mother, and daughter to my parent, its a real time saver as well.

 This bracelet is made from soft greek leather and more than one hundred, semi-precious tiger's eye stones.The clasp attached has been chosen with care, but please don't hesitate to contact me in order to pick a clasp that is better suited for you. In fact, I insist that you call or email me with at least one way in which I can customize this piece for you.

Adding to new scents

I have been looking at different scents to add to my collection.  I was thinking of either cherry or black cherry, spearmint and basil, eucalyptus. lemongrass sage and coffee.  Of course, these may change.  I may find some other fragrances that I like better.  There are so many different scents out there, I don't know which ones to pick.  If anyone has any ideas, please leave a comment and I will check it out.
