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.

Great job on your first tarts! I love tarts and would love to make my own, but I haven't even a clue yet. haha.

We have mostly overcast skies today, but the sun has been nice enough to peek out now and then this afternoon. I run outside and enjoy it until the dark clouds cover it back up!

Patti, they look real pretty, too! You know, one positive thing about this crummy weather we just had was it was perfect for lighting candles and nice scents.
