Thank you all for the wonderful support this
year. The new palm votives, melts, tealights and pillars sold exceedingly
Well, I have some really exciting
news for all my candle loving people.
I am now making palm wax candles. This a 100% natural wax (until I
add the scent and colour) and performs like a soy candle. The candles when
cooled have a starburst effect. You must see them to believe it.
Note: Although I will
still carry a small supply
of paraffin wax supplies, I will be concentrating
on making soy or palm wax products.
I had a chance to inventory my Fall and Christmas
products as well as the scents on hand and
the ones I will be reordering this year.
Check out the Excel Spreadsheet.
My candles and lotions are
now available at Chris' Convenience Store in Mahone Bay. We will be adding
more stock in the near future. Stop in and see what Debbie has. :-)
Also this summer my products
are available in Lunenburg at Admiral Benbow's and the Maritime Museum of the
Atlantic, and my soaps are at The Teazer in Mahone Bay.

prices of some of my wholesale
and retail prices. Changes are in Yellow
2007 Fall and Christmas Craft Shows
Another season of successful craft shows over. Phew!!
Check out new lower prices of
body butters and
pampered pet paw balm.
Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about making up my Christmas
products. Where did the summer go!!
I will be ordering my Christmas and Fall scents soon, so if anyone has specific
scents they would like to order, please let me know asap and I'll see if I can
get them for you.
Here are the scents I will possibly
be ordering this year plus more.
NOTICE: As most of my fragrance oils come from the
US, I should explain that due to new USPS mailing restrictions, Canadian
customers will not be able to have fragrance oils shipped via USPS Air if the
flashpoint (the degree that a fragrance can explode) is below 200 degrees F.
These oils will have to be shipped via UPS or Fed Ex ground, and will be subject
to brokerage and duty fees.
I will be ordering some of these fragrances to be shipped
via USP Ground as they are a MUST and my best sellers, but I will be limiting
the number to a minimum. They are thousands of scents available with fp's
over the 200 so am going to concentrate on them.
I do order some of my oils from Canadian suppliers but
have found that the costs are sometimes very high in comparison to the ones from
the states and are the same quality or better.
I'm also looking forward to doing some new fundraising projects this fall.
Contact me if you might be interested.
The CPE Nationals
(Canine Professional Events), an International Dog Show will be held at the
Bridgewater Exhibition Grounds from
July 6 to July 8, 2007.
We will be there and have a 10 x 20 tent set up so if you love dogs, please
check out this event and visit us as well. :-)
This is the first time the show has been held
outside the US.
I will be at the Lunenburg Craft Festival from
July 14 to July 16 at Arena.
From June 1-3 Kelly and I will be attending the
Market in Berwick, which has moved from the Kentville Arena to the Berwick
Attended the Tulip Festival in Truro
from May 18 - 20, 2007. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with
the festival events which affected the attendance at the craft show...but I had
fun and that's what really counts.
I have added body butters to my product line. Check
them out at
I would like to thank all my wholesale and
retail customers for a fantastic 2006. Without your support, my business
would not be expanding at the rate it is.
Here's hoping 2007 is even
Thank you again.
January 2007 - Ok, just did a

of Halifax are selling
my wax votives
as a fundraiser for their organization.
In the past month, they have sold over 700

If anyone is interested in supporting
this group, you can
Jill Schwartz and
she would be delighted to help you. :-)
I have been contacted by another group this week
to make up 500 votives for their fundraising.
My votives seem to be replacing some of the chocolate bar
fund raisers in the area with my votives. If anyone else is interested,
particularly in Nova Scotia, please
and I'm sure we can work something out.
Check out my fundraising
November 2006 So far this year I have made over 8,000 soy and
wax votives and counting. (Nov.06)
