  1. If only we had a WTF face button because that's just the face I made...๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜’ so just put all of the emojis together and that'll give you an idea of my facial expression...
  2. 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.
  3. 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?๐Ÿคฃ
  4. @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
  5. 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 sleep๐Ÿ˜ซ)
  6. Laura, you warm my heart. Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ˜
  7. Get outta my head, @candlesinflorida! ๐Ÿ˜‚ You've said everything I was going to say.
  8. Beautiful candles! Trappeur, you could give lessons on presentation skills...
  9. I'm still in the very beginning stages, but I do think about branding a lot. I've got a document that is serving as my brain dump: the colors I'm using as part of my brand; a list of tag lines that I've come up with; the type of containers and color of said containers; packaging components, and all that jazz. I'm happy to have reduced my containers to two types: 8 oz tins and 12 oz jars, which eliminates many wicking headaches... But, I do try to think like a customer. How can someone instantly recognize my brand? What makes me stand out? Why should the customer purchase my product over a competitor's product? There is so much to think about, and being a librarian and so research-focused, it's fun, but also, ARGH. All that said, I'm learning a ton from everyone here, and learning to be patient, as well. Back to doodling...
  10. Ooh, loving that black lid, and the rust colored lid is nice, too. Great job!
  11. That's awesome! Go, clear tops for TallTayl!
  12. Clear tops, you say...? @TallTayl๐Ÿ˜ Hmmmm๐Ÿค” How are those clear tops working for you? I wonder about ink rubbing off/smearing, or something crazy...
