    Welcome to the forum! I have to say that I very much like your user name The Pacific NW is a beautiful part of the country - if I could choose where to live, that would be my choice. The conifer forest and rainy days are calling my name. One day...

    Fire Starters

    Hi all! I have been making fire starters for myself and would like to add them to my shop. Currently I use leftover wax from candle pours, meaning it's scented. Has anyone had issues selling fire starters with multiple fragrances mixed together? Not sure how buyers would feel about that, particularly if they dislike certain scents (although I find it silly when it's just going to burn up, but hey, whatever). Should I just toss the leftover wax and use fresh, unscented wax for the fire starters? Any tips would be appreciated.

    A Little help getting to know you.

    Love love love those candles. The designs on the glass are so cute. I had no idea this thread existed but have loved reading about everyone What's your name? Erica How old are you? 25 Where do you live? Southern California between LA and Las Vegas, in the middle of the Mojave Desert. How long have you been making candles/soap/whatever? Been making candles for about 10 months now and not getting tired of it any time soon! How did you get started making candles/soap/whatever? My husband got stationed here with the Army about 2.5 years ago and since we're so far away from civilization, I needed some hobbies. I started painting reclaimed wood signs and selling them on post, and being crafty I wanted to make more than just wood artwork. I love having candles in the house and thought I'd try my hand at it one day... and here we are! Are you married? Any kids? Married yes, kids no. If candle/Soap making isn't your primary job, what do you do? Before moving to SoCal I worked as a archaeological field technician in North Dakota; I was lucky once I moved here to find a job in the same field, but it's only part-time since I'm so far away from everything. Kind of an on-call position. Anything else we should know? Hmmm, I have two 80 lb goldendoodles who help me craft all day. Which by that I mean put their noses in everything and ask to be let in and out of the house all day... needless to say I don't get as much done as I hope to. When my husband and I aren't working or crafting (he does some woodworking), we take the pups on day hikes and camping trips, and it's really a lot of fun . Love to be outdoors.
