Snow Day Special!

I woke up to a layer of beautiful, fresh snow covering everything! While its beautiful, it does encourage me to stay indoors & off the roads, especially since its still snowing.

I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to offer a "snow day special" for anyone else who wants to do their shopping indoors today to stay off the messy roads & out of the cold and also to bring a little warmth your way with some Gold Canyon candles! (Of course, our friends in areas without snow are welcome to participate as well . . . but just know that I'm jealous of you!)

So, here's the offer:

BY PHONE: Call me by midnight tonight to receive 20% off any of our baking line candles which will surely warm your heart & home this winter season. Baking line scents include: Banana Nut Bread, Creme Brule, Fabulous Fudge Brownie, Key Lime Pie, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, Strudel & Spice, Sweet Cinnaroll, Vanilla Caramel Custard, Warm Apple Crisp. **note: My business line is separate from my home number, so you can call anytime up to midnight; the ringer will be turned off at 7pm, but you can still leave a message to take advantage of this great offer.

BY WEBSITE: Get double the free gifts when you place your order! You normally get 1 free gift when you order from my website, today (until midnight only) you'll get 2 free gifts!

Fabulous Fudge Brownie & Sugar Cookie

One of my informal New Years Resolutions is to use lots of new recipes this year . . . things I've collected over the years or are in cookbooks on my shelves. I made this recipe yesterday that was to die for & as we were eating it I imagined I was smelling a candle combination that I hadn't thought of before: Fabulous Fudge Brownie & Sugar Cookie!!! Doesn't that sound delicious?

I thought I'd share the actual food recipe with you as well. Its from the Taste of Home "The Best of Country Cooking" 1999 cookbook:

Black 'N' White Cheesecake Bars

2 cups (12oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
8oz cream cheese, softened
1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

In a double boiler or microwave, melt chocolate chips and butter, stirring occasionally. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs. Set aside 1/4 cup for topping. Press the remaining crumbs into an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until completely chilled. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.

10 for 10 Incentive Winner . . . just announced!

to all who were a part of my 10 for 10 Incentive this fall! It was so much fun to work with you to get you great free products through our host program & to also give you an additional $10 in free products as an extra "thank you" from me!

Now that we are all settled back in Maryland, I've had a chance to pick out 10 of my favorite products, and, as promised, I did a drawing using all of my hosts names from this fall to pick a winner of these 10 great products.

And the winner is . . . Sue M. of Glen Burnie, Maryland! (Yea Sue, I'll be in touch about delivering your products next week!)

Again, my thanks goes out to each of you. We have a great spring catalog out with some fun new products, so if you think your friends are ready for more great Gold Canyon products, let me know. I can set up home parties for my Maryland customers now and catalog parties for anyone else. I'd love to get the chance to work with you again!

Delicious Fragrance Recipes

Thought I'd share this tidbit and candle fragrance recipe shared in our recent demonstrator e-mail from Gold Canyon. Enjoy! And if you want to recreate it, but don't have all the fragrances yet, you can order on my website or by contacting me directly:

Scent Blending Recipes are carefully selected recipes of individual candles that when burning together, create their own unique, blended scent experience.

To maximize your fragrant experience, use the exact sizes and quantities noted in each recipe – a slight alteration can be like adding salt when you needed sugar.

FIRST: Arrange the candles on a heat-safe surface with the largest in the middle and smaller candles interspersed throughout. For votive and tealight candles, use a holder to protect the surface.

SECOND: Place each candle approximately two inches apart in your arrangement.

THIRD: Light each candle and let the aromas mingle for at least 30 minutes to create your new fragrance experience.

Featured Blend:

Off to the Tropics!

Send yourself on a tropical island vacation with this mix of sweet pineapple, tropical vanilla, coconut and pear that creates a breezy fragrance of pure island bliss!

  • 6” Pineapple Cilantro
  • 12 oz. Tahitian Tropics Vanilla
  • Coconut Lime Verbena tealights (2)
  • 5 oz. Juicy Pear
