Under Construction

Thats what it soon shall say on my site. I want to narrow down my selections on my website. I think it will be easier for prospective customers to navigate. I will still offer my you pick it we make it policy, by request. I will cut down the selections to pies, tarts, pillar, votives, and containers that I have in supply.
If a specialty order comes in I will honor it. Any party favors I will still do. Party favor and gift help will still remain. I am looking forward to reorganizing the site & hoping it brings greater success!

Will be needing Flyers

I want to send flyers out to local real estate agents & brokers to promote my candles for their open house. I think they would be great for them. Making the house smell wonderful when they hold open houses will make a sale more inticing.
If anyone makes flyers at a good price please let me know.
If there are any other jobs out there that would benefit from my candles, please let know.
Question of the week: What is your best way to market?

Sorry!!

Im so sorry I did not post last week. Things have been a bit crazy here. It was my daughter's 3rd birthday. We had a party for her in the park. It was great! It was also Father's Day. So we were busy!
I am happy to see that someone is interested in Candle of The Month Club! Im real excited about that! I will be ordering 4th of July supplies which I will also be using for a going away party for someone going into the Navy. Those will be gel candles with star embeds in Sea Spray. Cant wait to make those!
Whats one of the best perks of being a candle maker? Your house smells soooooo nice when you make the candles! I love it! And you get to experiment with so many scents you would normally not even bother trying! Its a real experience.
Question of the week:
What is your favorite candle scent?
