New tart molds

A few days ago, I purchased some more tart/melt molds. One mold was of pumpkins, which would be good for Halloween or Thanksgiving. I am thinking of making a few pumpkin tarts and seeing how they turn out. I think they will look gorgeous and of course the scent will be strong like in my other tarts and candles. I'm a little excited and anxious to make these.

The next mold I got was of skulls. I know, this is really a Halloween mold and it's no longer Halloween. These would be great for next year though. It will also give me time to think of something really original to do with them.

Another mold I got was of fingers and bones. One idea I had for this for next year was to somehow make the finger have "blood" dripping down it like you see in the stores around Halloween for some of the decorations. This may be something really interesting.

The last mold I purchased was of roses. This is to replace one of my molds that met an unfortunate accident. A very strong rose scent is destined for these beautiful rose tarts/melts. Since I have a few different rose scents and rose mixtures, I don't know which one it will be yet.

Red and Green Items

Since it is getting close to Christmas, I thought having a place where you can post your red and green items would be a good idea. It doesn't matter how much red or green you have in the item. You can post as many items as you want. This will help you get more exposure and hopefully, more sales.

Brown, red, orange, yellow

Post any item that has a brown, red, orange or yellow color.  These colors are usually associated with the fall.  Since it won't be long before the fall season is upon us, I thought  there should be a place where people can post their fall items.

Ready for Fall

Post your items here that has something to do with Fall such as color, theme, design, etc.

What is posted on my blog, I will post on facebook, twitter, pinterest, wanelo and svpply.

I hope a lot of people take advantage of this and gets some sales.

Shop update

I have been working on my artfire shop and on my supadupa shop as well.

My artfire shop has a lot of new candles. I have been working on the captions, descriptions, pictures, etc. I think I have improved on some of them, but have a lot more to do.

I have also been promoting my artfire shop on facebook, svpply, wanelo, pinterest and twitter. I have gotten a lot more views since I have been doing this. I am hoping these views will lead to a sale. I am also working on more items to add to my artfire shop. I have a few things in the works and have been trying to get them down to where I like them and they pass the test. Instead of candles though, these will be items I have sewn.

On my supadupa shop, I have added some new items a few weeks ago and have been working on trying to get more added. I just want to change the descriptions on these items so they are not close to the descriptions on my artfire shop. This is a lot harder than I thought it would be. There are a lot of same items on both shop. I haven't really promoted my supadupa shop yet. There are a lot more items I want to add.

I am thinking of adding some clearance items or items that I experimented with on my supadupa shop.

I am hoping working on both shops will improve my sales.

I hope everyone supports handmade items. Good luck on your sales everyone.

New candles listed

Since the last time I posted anything, I have listed some new candles at my shop. I have listed some lavender rose scented candles.   This candle has a strong lavender and rose scent.  Very nice, sweet and relaxing. 

 I have added some lemon citronella eucalyptus scented candles.   The citronella and eucalyptus are known bug repellents. 

I have even added a variety of tarts/melts.  These are very highly scented also.

 These tarts/melts are lilac and carnation scented.  They are very strong, sassy and sweet.  Your house will fill with these great scents.

If you don't like flowery scented tarts/melts, what about peanut butter?
These peanut butter tarts are very strong.  They smell just like when you first open a jar of peanut butter.  The color is a tan/light tan color.  Now you can have all the peanut butter you want without the calories.

I even have peppermint scented tarts/melts.  This is a very unique scent.  It is a nice refreshing scent also.

I also have whipped topping candles.    The top of these candles have whipped wax with a cinnamon scent.  The bottom part of the candle is a nice yellow with a strong lemon scent.  Almost like fresh backed lemon cupcakes.

Check out some of the other new items in my artfire shop.  You won't be disappointed.

Sold some candles

There is a person at my daughter's day care that bought two of my candles.  She purchased the pecan pie ones.  She said her dining room is a brownish color and they were close in color to that.  I was surprised that she purchased them.   Pecan pie is usually a scent for around the holidays. 

I am hoping she tells other people and more and more people buy some candles.  I would like to see a lot of the candles in my artfire shop sell.  I want to make some more with different scents and colors.  I also want to try some new wax for the candles.

Citronella candles

I just made some citronella candles. They are in the molds and are cooling down. They should be ready to remove from the molds tomorrow. These candles are actually a combination of lemon, citronella and eucalyptus scents. The citronella and eucalyptus scents are good at repelling bugs/mosquitoes. I added the lemon to balance out the citronella scent. The citronella scent is a very strong scent. To make these candles, I combined orange and black together. I wanted to have the black color to attract the bugs/mosquitoes and the orange to try to soften the black a little, but keep the dark color.

I have done some researching and mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors and that is probably the main reason for the dark color.  Instead of the mosquitoes attacking people, they will be attracted to the dark color of the candle. 

These candles come in round, square and octagon shapes.  They would be good to have on hand during the coming summer months.

Bed Shopping

This past week, my husband and I have looked at a few beds and mattresses. It can be confusing. We have been looking at the tempurpedic beds. They are supposed to be really good and gives a lot of support. They are very comfortable. The problem is the cost. A lower end king size mattress is about $2000. This doesn't include the bed, the coverings needed or anything. Just the mattress.

We have also looked at some generic tempurpedic mattresses and wonder if they are made of the exact same material as the tempurpedic. I don't know how to be able to tell. They were very comfortable also.

If we get the tempurpedic, we can either afford the mattress and no bed or the bed and no mattress. The price of the tempurpedic is that expensive.

Clearance Sale

I am having a clearance sale in my shop. The candles in the clearance section are 15% off and the candles in the other sections are 10% off plus a free tart with any order.

The items in the clearance section are highly scented candles that sustained some damage when they came out of the molds or after. They still have the same great scents though. The damage will not affect the burning of the candle.

The other candles are also highly scented. I am trying to make room for some new scents I am working on. In order to do that, I need to clear out some of my inventory. This sale would be a great way to get one of my strongly scented candles at a sale price along with a free tart.

I just ordered some new molds so I can have more of a variety of candle shapes. This is what I have ordered: a tapered diamond with inverted top, a 6 point star, 5 sided pyramid, a cone and another egg mold.

colours and scents

I have been searching the web on descriptions of colours and scents. I couldn't believe there were not that many sites that gave descriptions of either. I would get definitions, but nothing that was really a good description. My solution is to start a blog post where people can post their descriptions of colours and descriptions. Anyone who wants to post their description of a colour or a scent, please feel free in doing so. I will then post this on my facebook page and artfire so people can use it if they are stumped and need some help in describing a colour or scent.

Just post your descriptions in the comment box below.

Some of my candles

Here are some of my candles. They have an incredibly strong scent, but will not over power you when lit. These candles are made out of a combination of soy wax and paraffin wax. They would make a great gift for any occasion. They would also be good just to keep around the house for yourself.

The first one is a cherry scented candle with a concave top.  The candle has a pinkish red color.

The cherry scent is just like fresh picked cherries.  Nothing says summer more than any kind of fresh picked fruit.  This candle would be great in any room.

Here is a beautiful, spicy carnation scented candle with an ivory color.  This candle will not stand out and people will wonder where the fresh picked bouquet of flowers are. 

Another candle from my studio is a gingerbread scented candle.  It is an orange color.  This will fill your room with the gingerbread scent.  It would be great to have around for Christmas. 

The next candle is an amaretto scented candle in a tan color.  It has the almondy scent that is so familiar.  Your house will fill like this great scent. 

Here is one of my pumpkin pie candles.  It has the scent of nutmeg, cinnamon, spice and pumpkin combined to give this candle the strong pumpkin scent that people expect from a fresh baked pumpkin pie. 

These are just a few of the candles I have listed in my artfire shop.  Stop by and check out the other candles I have listed.  You will like what you see.
