    Hi Everyone

    Hey @Sam D, welcome to Craft Server. You'll find lots of information here and helpful, friendly people. Enjoy!
  2. I've recently started playing around with making wax melts myself. That's a good question @Sam D, I have not found a lot of information about this either. Just from looking at pictures and from wax melt recipes I have found, looks like you can use just about anything as long as it's not toxic or flammable. Such as baking decorations like the colored sprinkles, spices, glitters, micas, bath salts, coffee beans, etc. Here's a few recipes and there's a lot more online. https://www.naturesgardencandles.com/rustic-wax-melts-recipe https://www.naturesgardencandles.com/pumpkin-cheesecake-wax-melts-recipe https://www.naturesgardencandles.com/pecan-pie-wax-melts-recipe Here's links to other wax melt discussions:

    Performa wicks Yikes!

    Hi @nightlight. No, that is not common, at least in my experience. I have used Performa wicks from at least 2 different suppliers and generally always have great performance. The suppliers are Atkins & Pearce and Bitter Creek Candle Supplies. They are one of my favorite wicks. At one time I did have dark melt pools with black specs when using ribbon wicks but I believe it was because I was over wicking.

    ULine's box sale

    LOL, you're welcome @YellowButterfly. That reminds me, I'm running low on my fairy dust. Not sure if I had shared these links for black boxes or not so here they are. https://www.mrboxonline.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=black+box&x=0&y=0 https://www.nashvillewraps.com/boxes/black-gold-red-gift-boxes/p-808/hw46bks
  10. Hi. Just want to say I hope you are doing better and getting some rest. I've been keeping you in my prayers.

  11. Yes, that is a nice jar and I like that lid too.

    Scent Loss in Melts

    @Sarah S thanks so much for taking the time to reply. That's exactly what I am afraid of. I just need to keep all my scented wax melts separated, only wrap together the same scent and not get worked up over using additional wrap/packaging when necessary. Right now for my own personal use I'm using wax paper baggies for each scent and then I put them in recycled plastic containers (#5 PP).

    Lab & Co coconut wax

    Good grief, sure enough, but their facebook page is still there for what that's worth. Hopefully they are just in the middle of improving things all around, including the "hot mess" of a site. LOL. That phrase, "hot mess", cracks me up. Is there going to be anybody we can buy candle wax from? Dang. Taking a pottery class is starting to sound real good about now. The sky is falling, the sky is falling, oh no what do we do???

    EMERGENCY Mica rescue!!!

    Oh cool, thanks for letting me know. I was wondering if they would do fine in wax melts, I hope to experiment today.
  15. I will keep that in mind, thanks.
