Post anything that is cheery.  This can be a smiley face, a fragrance, a toy, clothes, etc.  If it makes someone cheery or gives someone a cheery feeling, post it.

I would love to have everyone post an item, get more views and sales.

I'm having a 10% off sale in my artfire shop.  There are some really nice candles in there.  Some would make great gifts, great to have around for the summer and there are even some for the fall or holidays.  Take this time to stock up on your candles.

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.

Memorial Day is coming at the end of the month. It is usually the unofficial sign of summer. It is also the start of the traveling season and the growing season.

List all your Memorial Day items here. These items can be anything that would go with traveling, growing or summer. You can also list things here that would help in making these events funner and easier.

Be as creative as you want. What is listed here will be listed on my facebook page, pinterest and wanelo.
