Change to my links

Guess that is the title I wanted to use.  To start with I had all my candles & etc listed on My Products Page, you clicked that and it took you to the links to click for containers and etc.  I thought that may get confusing so I changed it back so on the home page everything is visible as to products.  It just seems easier that way.  Also another thing I discovered with my new website, instead of all the pages having html like past websites, this new one has dropped the l and it is htm. 

Hyacinth has become a real popular scent.  I was not sure about it to begin with.  there are so many different floral scents til it is hard to really know what people will like.  I have learned though after all these years not to order the large size of anything new I am trying.  A lot of candlemakers get the 1oz samples to test but I always order at least 4oz sizes.  If I really like it don't want to have to order more and that seems to be enough to "test the waters" as they say.

I have added 1 new scent lately - Sunflower.  It is really different than most florals to me.  It just seems to have a bright sunny, little sweet, little green scent to it.  Though really I have never thought a sunflower in real life smelled real sweet and flowery so I really think this is a good scent.  It is strong and scents up a large room really well.

Well, time to take Pepper out and get ready for bed!  Until next time, "sleep tight and don't let the bedbugs bite"!!!!

Forgot to add - During the month of March all online orders receive a 15% discount.  It helps to pay for shipping so stock up this month.  Don't know when I will run a special like this again.

I know I have been very lax in updating my blog.  I always tell myself I am going to do better but it just doesn't seem to work!  Not much has been going on this year.  Things have been sorta slow but that is understandable with the economy like it is.  I am also sure people are trying to get over Christmas spending.  Don't know why we do it but we always seem to overspend on Christmas! 

Just to update a little.  I have a new look to my website and sure hope it is not confusing to my customers.  Now instead of having all the links listed out on left as usual they are grouped.  All my candles and etc are on the My Products page and once you click on it then you can see where the containers, pillars and etc are and just click that link.  I have also added quite a few new scents.  My favorite so far are the Ginger Lime and White Musk.  I have also added Tuscan Garden, Twilight, Hyacinth to name a few.  I really have a lot of scents listed and have been thinking about trying to narrow it down some.  I think sometimes where you have so many scents it makes it hard to choose just a couple!  That's like looking for a card for a Birthday and having to read through all of them to find just the perfect card!!

I have let it get late on me before I thought about blogging so I am making it short.  This is the link to my shoppe.
