I Did It!

After weeks or more like months of researching I finally did it! I made wax melts for the Shop.

Yesterday I finally got up enough nerve to pour my first batch and I am so happy with how they turned out. The scent for this first batch is Birthday Cake and it smells so yummy.

I was told that I should let the melts cure for a few days but I couldn't wait so this morning I put one in the tart burner and my house smells so good. I also have one melting in a tart burner in the Shop. I just had a customer stop by and she said she smelled something yummy on the porch of the Shop. The scent worked its way out to the porch so not only does the Shop smell good so does the porch! I gave my customer a melt to take home with her to test burn for me. I need a few more testers, so if you stop by The Brickhouse I will give you a sample to take home and test burn. I am so excited and can't wait till this evening to make some more! Right now I am busy painting signs for our customers.

I hope you all are having a good week. I have a request if the sun is shining in your neck of the woods could you please send some my way? I am looking forward to some sunny warm weather.

This morning Tim stopped by BOB AND TARRAH'S to pick up some new pottery for The Brickhouse. Tarrah told me that there was a surprise in with the pottery.....WELL...let me tell you, Tim and I were really surprised! Tim came home with the pottery and I was in the Shop with some customers. Tim and I started to unpack the pottery and we both, I think, made a little bit of a scene. We both were so shocked and wonderfully surprised by what we saw. Bob made Tim and I a little crock with our Shop name on it. We LOVE it. It was the best surprise! It is so perfect and we will treasure it. Thank you Bob and Tarrah. You guys are the best. Here it is:
