I "gottahave" . . . creative candle ideas

Feel like making someone's day a little bit "brighter"? Here's a cute poem that you can attach to a candle, something small like a tealight, votive, or 5oz or something larger, depending on the budget you're working with & how many people you want to do this for:

This fragrant little candle is sent to you today

There's no particular reason just a chance for me to say

Our days are oh so busy, a thousand things to do

There never seems to be extra time for friends like me and you

So when you light this candle and watch it's flame burn bright

Know you're in my thoughts and prayers each and every night.

I "gottahave" . . . smooth legs

Now, I know you're wondering what smooth legs have to do with Gold Canyon, right? So, here's the background story . . .

I've always had problems with shaving my legs & consequently I don't do it nearly as often as I should. I love the way my legs feel after a shave, but then it doesn't take long before the razor bumps start to appear and then my legs are itchy & red and hurting. I tried using lotions and I tried using different things to shave with. While Gold Canyon's Emerge body wash works great to shave with, it didn't eliminate the dryness & itchiness that I have always dealt with.

So, I recently decided to try something new: Gold Canyon's Emerge body mist. I've been using it for a few weeks now & am shaving much more often. The more I've used it, the lest irritation I've had until now I don't have any irritation at all. After shaving, I just wait wait about 20 minutes (while I dry my hair) and then I spray on the body mist & stroke downward toward my ankles. My legs are silky smooth now without irritation!

I "gottahave" . . . fragrant memories . . . for Chase's first birthday!

Did you know that the sense of smell is one of our most powerful senses? A sniff of a familiar fragrance can reel you back in time to remember a long-forgotten memory. It is with that thought in mind that I bring you the first in a series . . . Fragrant Memories . . . and invite you to share your own comments on how a fragrance reminds you of a memory.

How fun it was to celebrate our little boy's first birthday! As I was baking the cupcakes, I smelled the batter & realized that I knew that smell . . . it was the same as the Birthday Cake candle! I had one on the shelf, pulled it out & smelled & sure enough, it was an exact match. From now on, I will always burn a Birthday Cake candle with good memories in mind of Chase's first birthday.

And a recipe for you, too!

My sister & I used to decorate wedding cakes, but my favorite part was making the gourmet cakes that everyone raved about the taste. I used one of our secrets in making Chase's special first birthday cupcakes.

Birthday Cake Cupcakes
Make up a classic yellow Duncan Hines cake mix according to the directions on the box but add the secret ingredients (1 small box of instant vanilla pudding & an extra egg). Add in a cup of mini chocolate chips, if desired, & bake, either as a cake or cupcakes. If baking as a cake, you will probably need to cook it a little bit longer than what it says on the box since the pudding & extra egg give you more batter. Top with your favorite frosting!

Where in the World is Gold Canyon?

This weekend, our irresistable 8oz sweet pea candle was at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland . . . "swimming" with the dolphins! Okay, so it wasn't really "swimming", but its close enough to look like it, right?
