Mixed Blessings

I haven't updated in awhile because I have been very busy the past few weeks and have taken a nice break from the candles. Over a week ago, I received a large custom order from a lady I have done business with in the past. She is someone that will be ordering on a continuous basis, and I'm thankful that God has opened this door for me.

The same day I delivered her order, I also checked my inventory at the stores and had to make the hard decision to pull my candles out of one of them. There has been a theft problem, and I had little choice. I got more disheartening news today. The owner of The Purple Elephant is going out of business. This means my candles are no longer in Fort Walton Beach. I am praying God will open another door for me to find a location down there if it is His will.

On a positive note, I made some Valentine candles today, but they are cooling at the moment and not ready for pictures yet. I will be introducing them within the next two days, so check back for an update.

Happy New Year!

I have been busy with the holidays and catching up on projects at home. My office is complete, and I have my new computer - hooray!

As I reflect back on the last year,I am so thankful for all of the business opportunities that came my way. I was able to get my candles in the first store in March, and God kept opening doors for me since then. I found out about some good craft fairs to attend, and also learned better ways to display my products and keep up with inventory. I made some really good friends along the way too. I'm looking forward to what 2009 might hold for me. I am excited about trying some new scents and a totally new line. I will be ordering supplies soon, so check back for updates.
Hope you have a blessed new year!
