  1. Hello, hello! TGIF! So happy to be back at work this week but the kids were sooooo jumpy! Yikes....I think they need some outside time even though it's sooo cold. Amy...yay for being home! Glad for you and getting new computers...nice! My Southbound melts were very strong and I believe they were the last of a giftie from last Christmas! Michele...thanks regarding the French Baguette...that sounds yummy. And what a cute name of your melt! Riff Raff? Lolol Sounds interesting! Candle Connoisseur....I just saw Goosecreek has a new chocolate candle out. You may want to take a peek. Its Rockets Perseus tonight....soooo strong and full of deep bakery scents. Delicious but almost too strong. Lol Have a nice evening!
  2. Hello and good morning! Debra...oh no...sorry to hear about little kitty! My Yorkie had terrible teeth and was always having intestinal issues. Once we got all almost all of her teeth removed, she was so much better! Good luck! And Battleship is- Stainless Steel (beach masculine scent), Blue Sugar, & Cotton Candy. In the upstairs warmer is Twisted Misters by VRC Have a great day!
  3. Yes...I usually do but I'm trying to get more sleep. My face is dripping off me due to the lack of it. Lol The person below me has used a tanning bed/spray.
  4. Hello All. Hope all is well with everyone. Thanks Candle Connosieur! I'll keep that in mind...I love a good sugar cookie scent! I'm still melting the same things in all of my warmers...it's about day 3...I think somethings gotta give. That's my only complaint about the automatic timer warmers....I don't have to go near them so by the time I remember to change them, they're off and hardened with wax so I say...tomorrow....and the circle begins. Somebody's lazy. So.... It's gonna be all Southbound tonight... Frosty, Snow Candy and Elf Treats
  5. Hello All! Debra...you are lucky to get snow....even a dusting. I want some snow sooooo bad.Gingerbread kettle corn....interesting!! Amy...those mountains sound lovely! Thanks re the hubby...he is doing good. It must be a little odd jumping back into the traveling after being off for a bit. I hope you feel refreshed and ready to go now! Your blueberry spearmint melts sound yummy. Michele...thanks re the DH too...all is well and I hope you are doing good as well! How's that French Baguette? Is it yeasty or doughy....although they sound like the same thing...lol. Candle Connoisseur...Hi! Although I've bought the Ashland candles and melts from Michaels in the past...I have never seen that scent! That's a new one to me. Tonight it's Battleship from CFOW.... Have a nice night.
  6. Nah...I think I'd rather work on it after everyone leaves. When they come over, it's their turn to relax. I'm usually chasing people out of my kitchen...lol. The person below me has a night light in a room. *** Not TMI at all! I love the breakaway bars too....it seems like a decent amount of wax in a shape that's sooooo easy to store AND much less garbage.
  7. Thanks Valerie and Debra....it went well...folks left around 2:30am but I was cleaning till 4:37 am. Debra...love the cinnamon scents on cold days. Sharon....that Sandalwood and Black Pepper scent sounds interesting! Valerie...so glad your DD will be much closer than before. I'm sure next time the visit will be better with no sickness! Its CFOW in Ugh...Men! (Blue Sugar, Fire Roasted Marshmallow, Sugar Cookie) Have a good one.
  8. Good Morning! Susan...I love Crossroads candles! I love their artwork candles and they throw wonderfully for me to boot! I hope you enjoy your new candle! Amy...I know...doesn't it go so quickly? Glad you may be able to wait until Tuesday to travel! Thank you about the party today...I do hope it is a success. Your IG Challenge sounds fun....and having the right scent probably isn't too difficult when you have a "large selection" to choose from...lol. Michele...best of luck today with your DDs bridal shower! This morning it's The Melted Duck in Naughty Noel...probably melting too soon but I was hankering for a smooth minty scent...let's see how it does. Have a great Saturday!
  9. Hmmmm.....well I bought some Chianti for the Italian theme....but I'll probably drink a cranberry grapefruit vodka drink. Not too exciting but it tastes good. The person below me has a favorite style of wax....shape, type, etc.
  10. Good Morning all....and thanks regarding the title, you guys! Sharon....I am mostly a seasonal melter although I love shaking things up once in a while. For me it's due to storage....I must take half of my inventory and store it away every six months (so my summer stuff is away now...I'll swap in Spring) or I won't have anywhere to keep it. My goal is to stop buying long enough to keep everything I own out and use from there...buying as I have room. Crazy that I have that as a goal...lol. Susan....yep....I remember too....Silver Bells is a good one! Yahoo, Michele....back to driving! You must be doing well! I'm sure some independence will feel so good! Amy...oh...thanks...lol! I'd love to be games captain...lol. Oh dear...I'm not building a pyramid...it's a 4' x 4' thin box that I've tried to make look like the board from the show with the red and orange boxes. We will see how it goes...lol. Savor your last days of vacation...do you head out Monday morn? The kids were so quiet yesterday and one fell asleep on the play mat. It's nice being back though. Gingerbread Man Melts by Nanas Tarts From a sweet CF pal Mulled Cider & Chestnut by Ten Digit Have a good one.
  11. Yes...I have a wick trimmer. The person below me is looking for some snow!
  12. Happy New Year to all!! We were sending HNY messages to family and my nephew is in CA so he had three more hours to go....however, when I woke up his messages were waiting for me from 3 am. The time difference is crazy. Thanks Re the title. It's a problem. Lol Debra...I don't know about energy but I love crafting so any excuse to build a $25,000 pyramid out of cardboard and paper is all I need. Lololol. Amy...if we can all manage to meet up together at some point...I'm bringing the games! My get together is Saturday...still have some odds and ends to finish up and then get the booze and food. Michele...enjoy your dinner today....and so exciting about Saturday! Yay! Does your DD know? I don't think the girls have surprises anymore...I guess they want to show up looking good....lol....not in my day!! This is pretty much what I looked like at my shower...lol. Well it's all gifties today and they smell great! Fireside by Nenes Victorian Christmas by PI Christmas Cabin by CFTKR
  13. Oh that sounds delicious...I'm hankering for some Chinese food. We ended up eating taco bowls. I'm not reading anything at the moment but I miss it....I may start a book next week after my gala...lol. The person below me owns a compass and has used it.
  14. Hello All! Dad just left after his weekly dinner here....zoomed away faster than normal...lol! I think he wants to get into bed and sleep. Amy, no big plans here. Never been a big NYE person and I'd be happy if the stores were open so I'd have something to do. Although, I do know that others have lives so....a boring evening in for me. You are sweet about my party, thanks. And Rockets is doing well...even with a short cure time. (Yup....I made a little purchase...shhh). As for tonight....Maybe I can get someone to play games with.... Susan...oh...I love games too! Can ya tell? The Rockets is still going for now.... Happy New Year Everyone!
  15. Ahhhh.....no? I don't have a clue about what I'd like to cook tomorrow. I'm not a big NYE person but since it's Tuesday, Dad will come for dinner. Any ideas? The person below me has used a weighted blanket. ***I did get a lot of candles, but I like them all so I either kept them or gave them to my girls.
  16. Hello, hello! Valerie....glad you are back and hope you are feeling better! I'm sorry you were sick but having the girls around must have been Thanks for the update on a Holly...please tell her hello! Debra...isn't that silly though? I try not to rush through when they are still throwing great but just in an old bag....but I just can't help it! Amy...you have a lot of things on your "to do" list! I hope you are getting time to relax as well!! That peppermint pink sugar buttercream blend sounds delightful! Michele....sounds like you are doing amazingly! Yahoo! I'm glad you've got help from your DD for the shower...perfect! Susan...the family trip to Billy Graham library sounds interesting and it looks like you had such fun! Sadly, I haven't changed the scents in two days...ugh. I put on Pink Peppercorn by Colonial and although I've been turning the warmers on and off...I think I'm fired. LOL. I've been so busy planning my annual "Friend Christmas Get-together"....that I've been slacking. This year I'm doing an Italian Murder Mystery and a few rounds of $25,000 Pyramid. Couldn't decide which...so I'm doing both. LOL Now it's going to be... Brown Sugared Pears by Rockets Have a nice evening!
  17. No....but I have decided to keep my decorations up for all of "Christmas". The person below me has some Christmas returns to do.
  18. Good Morning All! Oh no Amy....is she sick or just a little backup? Hope all is ok. Are you tired of the Christmas scents already? I look forward to them all year so I am always very sad to see them go back into hibernation. I'm trying to use up some that have been hanging around for a few years due to size. I bought BIG bags from Taras and although they have kept their scent nicely....the bags are getting kinda beat up. Sharon....thanks for teaching me something new! I've heard about "Boxing Day" but never knew the history. Very cool. Michele...hope you are feeling good! Debra...yes! I am also not a fan of the soft wax but I do like Colonials scents and throw....plus they've always had great sales on the melts before Christmas. Not this year...hardly anything. Its Taras this morning... Holly's Christmas Wish Christmas Donuts & Eggnog Both delicious! And both blended by an old friend from CF...Holly! I wonder how she is? Have a great day!
  19. Good Morning I hope all is well with you! Debra....oh gosh....three times is a lot! Amy and Sharon...glad you got a chance to blob! Its Colonial Candles Balsam Fir this morning...one of my favorite scents at Christmas time. So much running and racing and now I don't know what to do with myself. I've been debating weather to take down decorations early or let them go until the end of the Christmas season...I think I'll let them sit until the 6th at least. At least that's what I say today...lol. Have a good one.
  20. Yes! (I have always wanted a fireplace but have no wall available to put one in so I make do with a electric one) The person below me hangs Christmas cards.
  21. OMG Amy....hysterical!!! Crickets!! Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Finally ready for a little blobbing. Ive been melting Amish Quilt by Wax Workshoppe....wonderful!!
  22. I agree with you totally re the lights! I have some steady and some twinkling on my tree. As for the pie...thanks....now I get you...I don't think we have a pie staple for Christmas. Yes! My mom gave one to my DH and me for our first Christmas as a married couple. It looks almost the same as hers....so it is very dear to me. The person below me has a real fireplace and has already used it this year.
  23. Hello, Hello!! I'm glad to be posting...finally. Been busy as a bee with kiddies at school, my Dad, my own offspring coming home and my own tests and whatnot. Happy to finally have an evening to check my mail and get on to read the board. Ahhh. Debra...the cat rodeo???? Amy...Coming home tomorrow? Ya-hoo!! How cool that you met another Internet pal! You are so friendly and social...I just love that! I'm glad it was a lovely visit! As for the bear....ugh....not someone I'd want to run into. My sister has bears that roam around the neighborhood and break down sheds to get to the garbage. My BIL came out one day and walked right into one....he slowly backed up until he was in the house....not for me! Yikes! Susan....I'm sorry about your breakup. Hugs to you!! Onto new adventures! Michele...hope you are still recovering magnificently!! Its been Rarified Air by Golden Willow Wax.... Have a great night.
  24. A Christmas pie? I'm not sure what that would be. Do tell!! Growing up, Christmas was when we had homemade cherry cheesecake and Christmas cookies. I'm not a big cookie baker but I always make the cheesecake. The person below me prefers blinking lights to steady lights on a Christmas tree.
  25. Good Morning! It is Saturday and the concerts are complete! All went well....nothing unexpected. Now the parties begin. Amy...Are you still traveling? I know you had an extension added onto your trip but I'm hoping you're home now. I'm missing the snow....so far it's rain, rain, rain. Yuck. You are lucky. Glad you found your Zeep box. I "think" I only have one of hers left. Debra...I was just noticing the slightly grayish cast to the ceilings on the day I saw the soot in the candle shade. Ugh. With so many candles in inventory, I have no time for that. Lol. Glad kitty is doing well....I'm hoping her memory of it fades soon. Susan....you are on a mission...lots of good sounding scents! Michele...thanks about the concerts. I hope you are still feeling good and making progress. Last night and this morning is Gingerbread Man by Savannah Blue. I haven't liked the smell in my house but I couldn't figure out if it's the wax or my dinner. Better change it's up! So now it's going to be Dessas Candy Cane Snowball Cookies Wax Workshoppe Captain Crunch French Toast Have a good day!
