    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!

    Alternatives to Etsy?

    Artfire. Wow, I didn't realize that was still a thing. I wonder if my store is still there after sitting idle for 13 years? 😂

    I worked on my website today!

    I like the idea of a drop down menu for scents, but I'd like the scents separated by category. I don't want to scroll through evvvveeeerrryyy scent when I know I want something bakery or masculine etc.
  4. I know people sell panties they've worn online. The take a picture of them wearing the panties and then state how many hours they were worn. People are paying big bucks.

    Warming oils

    Straight FO will smoke and get gummy in a warmer. The FOs are mixed with DPG to prevent that.

    Fig & Honey? Other figgy scents?

    Mediterranean Fig from CandleScience is nice. Fig Leaf and Cassis from WSP was a big seller for me (men really liked it), but now they only offer it special order of 25lbs. 😞

    Vinyl Banners - Where I get them

    Pardon my ignorance, but why is there a beer graphic on your candle banner?

    supplier closed - need tart wax replacement

    That KY133 is amazing! It was my favorite for many years until I started blending my own.
  9. I order from them. They are about an hour and a half drive, so I just go pick my orders up. My biggest sellers from them are Spa Day, Lux Linen and Tangerine Dreams. I have others of theirs (Coffee Shop, Driftwood, Barnwood and Burlap), but use them as mixers in blends, so don't know how they stand alone.

    A Sailor's Dream

    I totally got the seaweed. Looks great!

    Fragrance Buddy

    @Marleigha I finally got around to smelling my Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake FO and it isn't really creamy at all. I get a lot of graham cracker crust and spices when I sniff it!

    Calling all incense makers!

    I've decided I want to use the bamboo sticks as well. I used to love picking out incense sticks at the record store when I was a teen and that is the vibe I'm going for also. If you don't mind me asking @Hopie where do you sell? I'm wondering what I'm going to do with mine if I like making them!

    Calling all incense makers!

    My husband actually mentioned the PVC pipe idea to me yesterday! Then he was all, "I can build you a stand, so they fit right here and are out of the way". I was like, "Slow your roll, man, I've got like 16 sticks soaking just to play around"! 😏 I haven't made the cones before. I know how, it just hasn't been something I've played with before.

    Calling all incense makers!

    I played around a little before work this morning and have 2 different incense soaking. I tried the Volcano dupe from RE/AH and Dragon's Blood from FB. They should be ready to take out and dry in the morning. I'm so excited!
  15. Minimum of a full day. In the bathroom, I like to use votive warmers/melters. A block or two from a clamshell fits perfectly in the little glass insert. I've had some that still throw, albeit faintly, for up to a week.
