I can't decide if it is everything around
me that is whirling or if it is just me in
the candle kitchen but it is crazy around
here right now.
With more than 60 online orders in just
two days....Thanks Heartsy!.....and multiple
fundraiser kickoffs over the next week I nearly
caught myself coming or going yesterday!
Yep! I'm moving so quickly that often
I find myself jumping from one aspect of
the business to another within mere seconds
and then returning back to the point that I've
been wondering how I've done it.
But, this is the stuff my dreams are made of.
This is what will get me my cute little candle
shop where people can come, hang out and
we can chat while I work. The experiment
the other day with my friend Mindy went
pretty well. We chatted while I worked and
I greatly enjoyed having her here.
She did have to scoot to the side every time
I needed more wax, though. So a larger area
would be very beneficial to this kind of a plan.
I met with the CHALC group last evening and
cannot begin to express how gracious
This is our third year to work together and
it was so rewarding to hear those parents
who have participated in prior fundraisers
say how they can't wait to get candles again
and that they are glad we are doing this
fund raiser. Can you imagine???
They snatched up all of the
hot chocolate candles
that I had taken.
They do make great demos!
I'm thinking 400 might not be enough
for this selling season .....with so many groups
selling....I'm going to see if I can get more of those
I'm also looking forward to a home show
in early November,
with my new friend, Angel.
She lives in Chambersburg and has invited
me to come to her house for a show.
She and her friend, Michelle,
make custom scrapbooks
and lots of sewn items for children.
I love their chalkboard mats
So creative and practical.
We've had some bags shipped in from another
Etsy seller, Kelly.
She does such amazing work with her
So, anyway, I am having fun these days
even if I do run into myself sometimes
and feel like a whirling dervish at others.
It is such a blessing that I actually
pray prayers of Thanksgiving
at very regular intervals!!
