Candle Party

Well I will be holding my first ever candle party this Friday. My friend Lorraine (you know you are a god send don't you!!) has agreed to hold one for me! To say I am nervous is an understatement. Try terrified. However I am trying to be very professional and have made up a colour brochure and order forms and hopefully I wont make too much of a mess of it.

Wish me luck!

Soy Wax

Well I have finally taken the plunge and started testing out a range of soy waxes and I will be adding these to the web site early next year.

I have to say this wax is fantastic - all made from natural resources and best of all if you spill the wax it can just be washed up very easily with a little soap and water!!!

Keep your eyes peeled for new soy creations.

Cancer Research UK - fundraising night

Firstly let me thank everyone who turned up at the Campsie View School Shopping night last night, it was an excellent turnout and a fantastic night for all. Thanks again.

I have another busy night tonight I will be taking along my Little Star of Hope candles to the Milngavie Branch of Cancer Reasearch UK's funding raising night. This is being held at the Kessington Town Hall in Bearsden and should be a really good night with proceeds going to Cancer Research UK. 1 in 3 of us will be touched by cancer at some point in our lives. I donate £1.00 from each of the sales of my Little Candles to Cancer Research UK - my son was found last year to have lumps on his lymph nodes. We have been told nothing to worry about for the time being but just watch for any changes. This is why I donate to this charity I like to feel that I have contributed in some small part to researching cures for cancer.

Christmas Snowball Candle

I really love this time of year as I have a good excuse for going crazy with all my Christmas candles and Christmas scents. This snowball is made using a solid core candle with whipped wax over it to look like snow. It smells gorgeous and with the huge range of Christmas scents I have no wonder.
