    I'm a busy wife and mom of 4. I work full time as an RN and run my hobby business in my free time (ha ha whats that?)
    I've been making soap since 2004 and love it as much today as I did in the beginning. I have an unhealthy relationship with wax. I'll just leave it at that.

    I love anything related to soap making or bath and body production. I love candles, tarts and anything that smells yummy!

  1. Epson Salt mason jar for candles

    I've used the coffee grounds/cinnamon before on tin can candles to make them look rusty/primitive. I've never thought of salt. It's so humid here, I'd be worried it would attract moisture.
  2. Is Soapalooza still selling FO

    Thanks, TT. Is there more to that company name? Fragrance Laboratories pulls up a lot of different specific named companies. Edited to add: I found it!
  3. On a whim, I went to Soapalooza's page and it looks like they are still selling FOs. I know Kelly was changing her business model to where she was only going to do wholesale/large orders, but the page looks like you can order smaller amounts again. Does anyone know if this is the case? I've used a number of her oils since she was Southern Soapers and stocked up when she "closed" awhile back. But if I could get Inishmoor direct from the source, that would be great!
  4. New to the forum, not to candlemaking

    Many of us here do items that are inspired by things we love, but we've given them original names. For instance, I have a Red Witch soap that is GoT inspired and a soap called Baker Street that is Sherlock inspired. Back in the day I had Twilight inspired products. The names gave recognition, but I never used any trademarked/copyrighted images, logos or graphics. I saw a local chandler ignore advice to stop selling candles with college football logos and NASCAR logos/driver likenesses on them. She thought she would be fine because she "wasn't that big a company". She wound up losing her candle company and a lot more.
  5. It's nice, but soft and light smelling. It won't be blowing any doors off. JS FOs are iffy for me. I use parasoy.
  6. Received my first Bulk Apothecary Order

    That's what I use my wick cuttings for!
  7. 402 help

    I use a custom parasoy blend using 464, but don't know this wax. Maybe someone else will chime in.
  8. 402 help

    I'm not familiar with this wax. Who is the supplier?
  9. Finding your niche

    I need this on a plaque in my craft room.
  10. Would this jar bother you?

    She mentioned in a previous post that it was a CD 8.
  11. Lavender and Rosemary

    Lovely! One of my favorite color combos.
  12. Finding your niche

    Blending and formulating scents is my favorite thing. Like TT, most of my scents are blends. Even my vanilla fragrance is a blend of 3 different vanillas. I'm inspired by fantasy, music, poetry, literature, tv shows, you name it. Some of my favorites and most popular scents are Opheliac, Baker Street, Guinevere's Wine, Red Witch, Airship Captain, and Northman. Offering something that others don't is key. I can't leave anything alone. When I smell an FO, it's guaranteed that I will come up with notes I want to add.
  13. Pictures of a new job completed

    Love them all. Not a huge fan of your logo on the Sparkling Citrus label, but I love the graphic with the animal silhouette. I prefer your name in cursive better.
  14. Oregon Trails Reviews

    What a shame! Their oils used to be good! I love their Absolutely Awesome Oakmoss and Dragonfire. It's been a minute since I've ordered from them, but thanks for the head's up!
  15. I HAD A THOUGHT!!!! (DUCK!!!)

    What TT said.
