How exciting it is to see my candles on other websites, in catalogs and in stores! Even more exciting is the fact that people are converting to sustainable, petroleum free, foreign material free, synthetic fragrance free candles! I want the world to be healthy for a very long time. Just thinking about the here and now doesn't work for me, especially since I have children so everyday I am reminded of what the future may bring. I know that candles are just a little start, but how wonderful it would be if everything were sustainable and not petroleum based and full of toxins?! Here are some amazing businesses, run by amazing people, that are devoted to selling only healthy, eco-friendly products. They sell my candles and two

Sandalwood essential oil soy candles are now available! I have had so many requests for sandalwood (which I had shunned away from due to the $100 an ounce price tag!) that I decided to see if possibly, sandalwood is so strong that I don't need much. And I was very pleasantly surprised! I have no desire to sell candles for $100 each. After all, I really want people to stop depending upon petroleum based products and to stop using synthetic fragrance. That isn't going to happen if a candle costs over $100!!! Turns out, just a few drops of the highly fragrant essential oil is all I need for a 6 oz. candle. YEAH!!! Of course, that still means that each drop costs about $1.00, but, at least it keeps it attainable! The smell is amazing! Musky, earthy, exotic, sexy, very romantic if I do say so myself!
I also have combined sandalwood, frankensince, patchoulli and a few other organic oils, in an organic coconut oil base, to make a wonderful Musk.
Some more exciting news! I am in the process of making pillar candles! I adore pillar candles and often come across beautiful pillar holders which I cannot use because my candles are all jar candles. The soy I use is not solid enough to be made into pillars. Once lit, the pillars would melt and create a a big mess! However, the American company that makes my GMO free soy "wax", has made a GMO free, soy "wax" for pillar candles! It is extra hard and I can't wait to see how it works! If it works out well, you'll being seeing them on the website soon!
Ironically, our wonderful ice cream man brought me a box of pillar candle making supplies that he had found at a yard sale. I was touched that he thought of me and told him how thankful I was. However, at the time, I couldn't make pillar candles so I have just been storing the box. I am so happy to be able to use it! How did he know?

I just want to say. "THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!" to all the wonderful people who supported me this past year! I want to especially thank Taylor, for constantly telling me that you know I CAN DO ANYTHING and your unfailing faith. Leaf, for being my inspiration for many of my products and for always telling me how wonderful they are. Lake, for being my smell tester and eating all the chocolates from the shop! Tim, for never doubting me and always encouraging me. Mom and Dwayne, for all your support and the fact that you absolutely LOVE my product! Heather, for being a living testimony and #1 fan! Jen, Ben and Thomas for helping move things, build things, and watching the shop. All of my repeat customers who keep coming back for more and more and tell me what an amazing product I make. This means more to me than you can imagine. And my wonderful vendors in my Christmas shop. It was a delight to meet everyone of you and I look forward to colaberating with you again, SOON! Speaking of which, now that the Christmas rush is over, it's on to Valentine's Day! I look forward to expanding my in-home shop for a holiday sale and adding many more, quality, handmade, local vendors. In March, I am hoping to open a Made Local Market, about 4 miles from my home, complete with a gluten-free bakery, chocolate shop, drive-thru Real Food Stand, Garden and hundreds of vendors. This is a process that I have been praying about and thus, am not going to jump in until I get the go-ahead. In February I have the Seattle Gift Fair.......if anything, it will be fun to be up in Seattle with my family and do some sight seeing. Happy New Year Everyone!
