G'morning!

 

Melting: YC Eucalyptus in LR

Soy Serenity Oatmeal Milk & Honey in BR

 

Used up the last of the 2012 candle stash!

[smilie=th_stophierDancedancer04

 

Not getting a huge amount of throw out of Eucalyptus, so if I still get nothing after about an hour, I'mma toss it. Life is too short for bum tarts!

 

Trying out a couple fresh type tarts, and then I'm off to take out the 2013 grocery store candles (Candle-lite, Mainstays, etc) stash...slowly.

 

Edit: Did not care for Eucalyptus since it had a perfumey note to it. Now I'm melting YC's Lemon Lavender to see if I like that.

I haven't been keeping up with the vendors. When was LSC last open? Fortunately I still have quite a few to go through.

 

Tried melting Scent Appeal Sugar Corn Pudding this morning. Zero throw. Switched it out to an old sample from Cheryl's-Banana Nut Bread. We will see how this goes. All old tarts are not the same.

That stinks about SA Michele! Her stuff has been really strong for me...even the older ones. But I do recall she changed her wax sometime in 2012 to get a better throw. Were they from before then? I "think" LSC opened for 5 minutes in October?? [smilie=th_thsignA] I'm waiting with baited breath for her to open again.

 

Turned on the rest of the melters now that I'm back home...

So along with the MRS, I put on....

VCS Holly Go Lightly

VDC Pink Sugared 7up Cake

 

Edit...those two scents are not sitting well with my noggin today...don't know why since I usually love them but now it's....

LSC Lemon Butter Crunch Cake

Waxie Lady Wildberry Mousse

I have found a fresh scent that I LOVE and doesn't make my sinuses go crazy! [smilie=th_smiley_emoticons_hurr

 

Apparently for me, the only fresh scent I like is YC Lemon Lavender. I'll still keep on trying what I got, but at least I found a fresh scent I like and can handle!

MaggieMae - I got her last newsletter on Oct 30th and think she opened just a little after that. Her fall and holiday scents were some of my faves but I didn't get to order in November & I doubt she'll offer those now if/when she does reopen...kinda sad. [smilie=th_sad2hz1]

 

I'm melting CFTKR's Holiday Hugs....not a seasonal scent at all...smells citrus-y and reminds me of gingerale. [smilie=th_thumbs20up]

So Laurie, any cookies left?? [smilie=th_c032]

 

Sweet - I had to go look in the waaay back of the candle stash - I have an oldie CB - Apple Jack and Peel. It is one of the pretty ones with peels embedded in the sides. Too pretty to burn, I guess!

 

What are you seeing, Maggie? I have not noticed anything yet!

 

Tonight is Candle Dippers - Amber Lily.

Good Morning! Brrrr . . . it's back in the 30's here!

[smilie=th_autumboy]

 

This morning I am rewarming Manchurian Dragon by CFTKR

and I'll check when I get back from morning errands if I can still smell it or need to change it.

:crysmiley1: (missing CFTKR)

 

 

DC - how is the Wood Essence? Is that a candle or a melt? The reason I'm asking is because my grocery store is having a BOGO sale on them (making the candles $6.50 for a 9.5 oz. jar) - do you think this is a good deal?

[smilie=th_idontknow]

 

Debra, there actually are a few left, I put some in the lunches I packed this morning!

[smilie=th_i-m_so_happy]

 

 

Maggie, I don't see anything different, but then I never log out and I saw someone commented on Jules' avatar being a zebra and I dont 'see that either.

 

[smilie=th_e13]

 

Have a great day everyone!

Good Morning!

 

Nothing going this morning as I am off to breakfast with friends and then for a haircut.

 

Maggie-The SA tarts can be from 2012. Wouldn't doubt it.

 

Hope everyone enjoys the day!

Major waxtastrophe today. [smilie=th_sad2hz1]

 

Yesterday I put on Nene's Cinnamon Glazed Fritters in my bedroom for my studying, but it wasn't throwing (maybe they needed to cure longer?), so I transferred it to my bathroom. I could have sworn that I turned it off last night. Got a nice little warm wax bath all over my jammies, but more problematic in my sink and on the floor. Took me an hour to clean it up. Just hoping not much went down the drain. [smilie=th_sad2hz1]

 

Sure didn't have time for THAT today!!! [smilie=th_sign0135]

 

FP Cherries Jubilee Ice Cream

Nene's Maple Buttercream Frosting

 

Hope everyone has a better start to their day! [smilie=th_thConfus_55]

Welp, I have returned from my errands, and the Manchurian Dragon is only very slightly throwing, so normally I would have changed it out

[smilie=th_butbutbut]

 

I went to a grocery store that I don't normally go to while I was out, and couldn't believe my eyes!

[smilie=th_cha60]

2-wicked Village Candles (the same size and "spool" style as Morenci) for

ARE YOU READY

$2.25

IMAG3257_zpsbf20cba4.jpg

 

[smilie=th_thwoohoonaner2gy]

As you can see, I snagged some!

(top row) Sun Splash, Pinkalicious

(bottom row) Black Cherry, Sea Spray and Twilight Moments

 

[smilie=th_thumbs20up]

So I am burning the Black Cherry to see how it throws, it kinda matches the Manchurian Dragon, which is fruity. AND if it throws, I WILL BE BACK to that store!

[smilie=th_sign0162]

 

[note]

It doesn't even have a complete melt pool yet, and I can smell it, so I think I *need* to score MORE!

Honeybear, I hate days that start with waxtastrophes!th_thanimeomega_emoticon_97.jpg

 

Laurie, I'm jealous! I wish I had a store nearby having great candle sales.

 

It rained all last night, but the rain stopped this morning. That's definitely good for going out with the boys, but not good for our drought! It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Saturday too, so here's hoping for quite a lot of rain! th_myspacepunked_sign0009.gif

 

Today I'm melting Country Store from McCall's and Honey Gingerbread from a CF pal. th_smilies-2.gif

Honeybear - I know that's a mess....hope the rest of your day went smoothly! [smilie=yes]

 

Laurie - Wow....what a candle bargain U found! [smilie=kewl] BTW - I'm still seeing Jules' cardinal too. [smilie=th_roll] I think I have to delete the forum cookies or something....

 

I'm burning B&BW's Fresh Balsam. I finally gave up on my older candle of this that never did burn right....hoping this new one is a winner.

It's a melt. You only get about a YC's tart's worth ounce-wise, but it's segmented into 4 thin squares. The throw and scent was good, but it's a spice scent so it's gonna throw. I have not tried their candles unfortunately.

Aw man! If the drain starts to be slow, you could pour baking soda in the drain and then vinegar. It foams up and clears it out without harmful chemicals. I have very long hair so I have to do that monthly and everything drains perfectly!

 

Melting: YC MacIntosh Spice in LR
