Hi Kids,

How are you doing? Long time no blog!

Well, things are just beginning to settle down a bit. Been pretty crazy since summertime.

First off, as I'm sure you've noticed by now... we have a new website! Woo hoo!!! And ain't she a pretty one?! We've got a new Web Guru and he's been workin' like a dog. You can also pity him as he's been trying to teach THIS old dog a new web trick or two . Talk about a tall order! Like I keep having to remind him... I world with wax for a living, not computers!

But anyway, ain't this a grand looking site?

We've sure been busy and this has been a year full of changes! We're doing some new things online, we're creating new fragrances for you, we've moved to a new city, we've opened a gallery, we've been featured in a couple of newspapers, we're being featured in a magazine in January, we're back at the Holiday Market at Lock 3 in downtown Akron all season... and we're pouring candles like there's no tomorrow!

On a personal note, I got the coolest little car. I'm nuts about it!

And Helo's crazy about the new Mini, too. Not as crazy as he is about his new toy SnowBall (a snowball shaped rubber ball - which, ironically, we feature in our gallery in an area we call Helo's Corner)!

And speaking of Helo, he just turned two-years old at the end of November! (My baby's growing up!)

I apologize for keeping this so brief but honestly, I'm just trying to figure out how to do this new site and blog and also making sure it works properly.

In the meantime, please visit our new gallery, come see me at Lock 3, order off the website... and please pardon our dust as we've got all sorts of work goin' on. And if you should find any difficulties or issues with the website... let me know! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you for your patience. And all your incredible support! You ROCK!

Talk to you soon and...

Keep 'em burnin'!
