Halloween and Football

I had a full image in my head of how I was going to spend this weekend. I wanted to accomplish creating 2 Special Orders. Both are AFL Candles and create Halloween Candles.
Now its always good to have a plan but sometimes what’s in your head doesn’t always work out in your design.

I ended up changing my mind on the Halloween Candles about 10 times. As I was creating the grand candle it finally occurred to me that it was taking me hours just to create 1, yes 1. Thats not going to work if I want to sell to the market so I had to revamp (no pun intended) the design again.

Let me tell you Australia doesn’t have any moulds that are readily available for Halloween. If I was to order from the USA it can take unto 8 weeks which is to late but would be perfect for next year. The moulds that I did end up purchasing ended up being to big to fit inside a candle, they will make perfect Halloween Melts though.

Anyways I ended going for a more refined design in the end. Photos will be up in the next 24 hours, can’t wait to show you.

As for the AFL candles, they have worked out a treat. It has given me the idea of creating NRL and AFL candles next Footy season and creating some decals to suit as well. It will make the perfect gift idea for your man or even a friend or family member. I’ll keep you posted. If you have any idea’s let me know and I’ll see if I can whip it up for you.

Spring is here!

Happy Spring Everyone,

I have woken up to the most beautiful Spring morning. I am sitting outside and the birds are singing and the sun is shining with not a cloud in the sky.

What does Spring mean for you?
For me its about our organic veggie garden growing, flowers blooming and the birds singing. Spring is the season full of Transformations. What not to love about it. The sweet smells, fresh herbs all of this is inspiration for scents in our candles.

Spring brings a bounce to everyone, its a little reminder that Summer is on its way. Outdoor entertaining is around the corner and unless you live on the 30th floor of a high rise apartment so are the mosquitos.
We are about to launch our new Citronella Candles. I have been testing for the last 2 weeks and couldn’t be happier. Within the next couple of days they will launch and I am excited to share these with you. We decided to create outdoor candles that are limited editions. Once the Jars run out we will release a new jar. This keeps it exciting and gives a lot of variety to those that want to make sure there outdoor screams design as well. So you if see one you like get in quick as they won’t be around forever.

I am also about to add 3 new scents to our Medium Candle range. Monkey Farts, Havana Club Mojito & Watermelon Lemonade*. The Watermelon Lemonade was a special request from a lovely customer of ours.

Plus we have an exciting small limited edition candle coming. Oh and lets not forget halloween. I will do a seperate post about that.

We have a quite a lot going on over September. Give a shout if you have special request and I will hunt it down for you.

Till next time, smile and laugh,
