autumn color wheel

October 4, 2010 at 3:20 pm (my latest work)

It is finally my favorite time of year! Nothing can compare to the beauty and refreshment of the fall season. I love absolutely everything about it, the sharp bursts of rich color, the cool, crisp air, wearing sweaters, the incredible aroma of fall treats baking in the oven, hot cocoa, yummy evening walks, and perfectly ripened apples. It is my goal to try apple picking this year, as I have not yet had a chance to before. I’m really looking forward to it! In celebration of the beautiful colors of the season I have created some lovely candles, borrowing from autumn’s color wheel- rust, pumpkin, brown, and some other natural tones. Over the next week or so I am going to be listing these new items on my etsy. The first listing has already been posted today! As I post more fall product, I will move the other product into a sale category. So be sure to be checking back every so often to see if the item you want goes on sale so you can grab it at a great price! Below are pictures of some of the candles I’m selling this fall. Enjoy the beauty of this wonderful season God has created!

new candles being sold at flowers forever

September 9, 2010 at 2:33 pm (my latest work)

A couple weeks ago I received an order from a local shop here in Columbia, SC. I was so excited I did a blog post about the shop and promised to post pictures of the candles I would be making as soon as they were ready. Well, the order has been filled, and I am thrilled with the results! Notice the polk-a-dots and stripes are actually inlaid in the base wax color, instead of being situated on top of it. This allows for a smooth finish; a great improvement I think! Visit Flowers Forever in Columbia, SC to snatch up a few for yourself. If you’re interested in viewing more pictures of the candles being sold at Flowers Forever or of the ones I’ve made in the past visit my facebook page and become a fan!

I am so pleased to announce that Candela Poeta beeswax candles will soon be found in a little shop on Rosewood Drive in Columbia, SC!

Or stop by their etsy. While discussing with the owner what candles would work best in her shop, I saw several customers come and pick up their beautifully preserved bouquets; each was thrilled with the result.
