Once you do one of the above items, you will . . .

Gold Canyon ... special recipe: Sparks of Hope


Mmmm, I love those specialty blends that Gold Canyon tries out & then shares the recipes for! Here's one using our Breast Cancer tribute candle: Pink Sugar Cookie. Even better is that you'll know when you're burning it that you've contributed to breast cancer research with your purchase!

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: Sparks of Hope

  • 16. oz Pink Sugar Cookie
  • 5 oz. Love StruckTM
  • 5 oz. Pink Lemonade Spritzer
  • 3 – Fruit Fusion tealights

In honor of those affected by breast cancer, this very special scent blend incorporates scents of sweetness from many loved fragrances—truly a blend of love and hope. Burn your tribute candle with these other sweet sensations and feel the “Sparks of Hope”. A great blend to burn at your Pink Parties this month!

Help make a difference with the Prayer Child Foundation!


I have a goal to donate $100 or more to the Prayer Child Foundation this week to help kids & their families with pricey medical expenses who really need our help! So, I decided to do a fundraiser of sorts & I greatly appreciate all of you who are able to help . . .

Purchase a Candles for Kids THIS WEEK & . . . 100% of Gold Canyon's profits go to benefit children in need (this is ALWAYS the case with these candles) but as a BONUS, I will personally donate $5 for each candle that is purchased! Order through me or my website . . . either will work! Fragrance options include: Apple of My Eye, No More Sniffles (my favorite!), Baby Magic, & Baby Powder.


Note: in case you're not familiar with Candles for Kids . . . they're not a candle for kids to burn, it is simply a line of our candles where 100% of the profits benefit the Prayer Child Foundation to be donated to children in need, mostly children with expensive medical conditions

Order through the website: www.gottahavecandles.com
Order through me: 720-746-9235

I would love you to pieces if you passed this one to your friends so they can help out as well!

Gold Canyon Pillars

Gold Canyon pillars will soon be gone :( At the end of April, Gold Canyon pillars will no longer be in the catalog & they will stop making them. So, if you love our pillars its time to stock up! If you've purchased a pillar candle, I thought I'd give a brief lesson on how they burn since they are different than the jar candles.

Our pillar candles have a beautiful design on the outside that you'll want to keep looking nice. For that reason, our pillars are designed to burn down the middle, leaving a "shell" of wax around the outside. A couple of things to keep in mind in order to keep this pretty shell. . .
  • keep away from drafts while burning
  • keep wick trimmed to specified length
  • make sure the surface you are using is flat
  • remove the ribbon around the candle when burning since it can cause "hot spots"

Monday, April 12, 2010

Mother's Day Options: #1

Have you thought about Mother's Day yet? It IS coming up & Gold Canyon has some great ideas for you! Boutique Chic candles &/or our Eau de Parfum would make an awesome gift for any mother!

Go Green . . . Repurpose & Reuse!

You could save money in addition to helping the environment when you reuse what you already have instead of throwing things away & buying new stuff. I've seen tons of great ideas on this lately!

To repurpose & reuse your candle jars, follow these cleaning instructions. Then be creative. An empty candle jar could become so many different things . . . here's a list of ideas for you!

Want to re-use your Gold Canyon scent pods? Here's the cleaning instructions & some ideas of what to do with them.

Gold Canyon's baking jars would be perfect to repurpose as kitchen canisters like this project.

And here's some fun "spooky treats", using re-purposed jars!

I just love these ideas for Father's Day gifts . . . aren't they awesome?!

And there are so many other things that can be repurposed & reused besides just jars! Check out these crafty ideas & this site is dedicated to "repurposing" and has some awesome ideas for reusing just about anything!

Green Week -- Everyday Ideas to be Environmentally Friendly

Here's some ideas that might fit into your lifestyle, save you some money & be good for the environment as well:

  • One of my favorites is to use re-useable shopping bags when I go grocery shopping. Not only is it good for the environment but its so helpful to me since it keeps the groceries so much more orderly than using those plastic bags that slip all over the place & let my food roll around the car! I even got a small savings from the grocery store on my bill the last time I went because I brought my own bags!
  • Cook with a slow cooker to reduce the electricity you would use by cooking with the oven & other ideas, here.
  • Let the sunlight in! During the day, open your blinds instead of turning on lights. I think this not only saves energy but when I open my blinds it is a mood booster as well! See other cheap ways to go green, here.
  • Check through this list of 50 ways to go green and choose just a couple to work on at a time so it doesn't feel so overwhelming.

Leave a comment to let us know what you are doing right now to "go green" & would encourage other people to do!

Green Week Continues with Green Cleaning Tips!

I remember helping my Great Grandma with house cleaning one summer . . . she used vinegar for everything & it worked! I love the idea of non-chemical cleaning, but my husband isn't particularly fond (okay, he hates) of the smell of vinegar. But he loves the smell of Gold Canyon's Homeology products.

Homeology are plant based cleaning products that use only naturally occuring ingredients such as coconut-based cleaners, purified water, and essential oils. Click here for some of the posts I've done on our cleaners in the past on the many uses for Homeology cleaners.


And here's some other ideas for being environmentally friendly while you're cleaning house with homeology products:
  1. Use newspaper to clean glass & mirrors
  2. Use a microfiber mop with our floor cleaner - no waste-water to throw away & you throw the microfiber cloth in the wash along with a load of towels to clean it & re-use it
  3. Instead of using new or disposable cloths, use old cotton t-shirts that can be cut up into cleaning rags
Other Green Cleaning Ideas:
Environmental Cleaning Solutions
Make your own cleaners - including furniture polish, drain cleaner, metal polishes & more

Green Recipes

Do you make special green food for St. Patrick's Day? I grew up having Corned Beef & Cabbage on St. Patrick's Day & will be making it for my family this week. Just use a head of cabbage. Cut into pieces and boil until tender. After straining the water, add 1 can of corned beef and mix it all together until the corned beef is broken up and mixed in with the cabbage. Very simple & very good!

Here's a couple others that I've posted in the past:
Pineapple Lime Pie
Watergate Salad
Chicken Divan

And here's a recipe that I'd like to try:
(Add green food coloring instead of red)
Red Velvet & Cream Cheese Cupcakes

Leave a comment & share YOUR favorite Green Recipes!

It's "Green" Week!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day being this week, I thought I'd do a theme week of "green" this week! Green recipes, St. Patrick's Day ideas, "green" cleaning, recycling, etc., etc. Hope you enjoy!
