Open For Business and My First Giveaway!





I am officially open for business. I am renting a boutique space at The Market in Oklahoma City, Ok. and I am so excited about this venture. I had a space two years ago and did not renew my lease do to the downfall of the economy. Even though my business was doing great, I was scared to death that any day it would all be over. Looking back I realize I was living for the "what if" and not enjoying the moment. My husband (aka my biggest fan and supporter) has been trying to get me to go back ever since and to be honest outside of my family it is my biggest passion. So after alot of praying, and soul searching I took a leap of faith. I mean that literally, God is my pilot, after all he gave me the passion, and he will guide me to use it as he sees fit. No more "what if's" for this girl! Everything has gone so much smoother this time (kind of like with your 2nd baby vs. your first). I am excited to introduce a new candle line, not only did I land an exclusive to The Market...I will be the first to carry it in the state! It is a soy mix, with super strong, complex and unique fragrances and it is eco friendly down to the packaging. And since this is my 100th post I will be giving one away. Leave a comment and I will draw a winner on Friday October 9th. These candles are like none you have ever experienced..I will leave you with the scent description...Have a great weekend everyone! If you are in my area please stop by!
Mexican Pumpkin
Delectable notes of cinnamon,clove,nutmeg,cardamom,and pimento leaf lend warmth to a green balsamic heart. The drydown brings together rich vanilla and sweet caramel for a mouthwatering finale.

I feel a road trip coming on:) I am so happy for you, and proud of you following your heart. I read a sign once that said, "What would you do if you knew you wouldn't fail." I only wish I lived closer, so I could work for you. I would probably spend more than I made. I am excited about your new candles, and am actually looking for some new candles....not loving the ones I used to buy...just not a lot of bang for the buck. Good Luck Paula...I know you will do awesome, especially with God as your pilot. All my best wishes, Shauna
