  1. @Darbla I wish I did, but I'm looking around. What's the D&G Light Blue smell like? I want to do a line of Italy inspired candles, but I think I need to commence planning for my trip first! It must involve lots of olive oil, wine, bread, pasta, and pizza!
  2. Awesome! What a great way to end 2019.
  3. I use California Candle Supply for mine, too.
  4. As a librarian, let me tell you that so many people fail to read. I've worked public librarianship and now I'm in school librarianship. Let me tell you: age doesn't matter when it comes to reading. A lot of people don't do it, and when you point it out to them, they're all, "Oh. Well, I..." and give me some excuse. Sigh. Big sigh.
  5. Great thread, @TallTayl. You somehow managed to read my mind. I've been on Amazon looking at light boxes and thinking about all things product photography, and here you are, with your thread.
  6. If only we had a WTF face button because that's just the face I made...πŸ€¨πŸ˜‘πŸ™„πŸ˜’ so just put all of the emojis together and that'll give you an idea of my facial expression...
  7. Hi @Dee26, and welcome! I am going to agree with both @NightLight and @Laura C. Candle making is not a rush job and not just a melt wax, secure wick, and pour wax into a container kind of hobby. There is so much more to it. Check the forum out; read through the topics and you'll garner the information that you are looking for - what wax you may like to work with, the different wick series, fragrance oils, containers, etc. There is lots of testing involved, too, so be prepared for that as well. Also, you say that Flaming Candle gave you some items - did you order those items independently, or was it a candle making kit? There is a ton of research involved and you must remember that, at the end of the day, you not only want your candle to produce a great scent, but it must also be safe.
  8. Holy smokes! That's a flame thrower, for sure! You might want to snuff the flame, snip the wick a teeeeeeeeeny bit, and try again! Oh yeah, how's the throw?🀣
  9. @MilosCandles I can't wait to see the new shelving modeling the product - great job! Karen, you may want to check out https://indiebusinessnetwork.com
  10. I'm still in the very beginner stages of candlemaking and such, but as a consumer, I don't think August is too early to have fall scents. People tend to shop earlier and earlier for seasonal items(or maybe I should say retailers are selling seasonal items earlier than what used to be). If you're testing out new fall scents, maybe the August event will be your testing waters. (I hope that makes sense; I've only had about three hours of sleep😫)
  11. Laura, you warm my heart. Thanks so much! 😍
  12. Get outta my head, @candlesinflorida! πŸ˜‚ You've said everything I was going to say.
  13. Beautiful candles! Trappeur, you could give lessons on presentation skills...
