Yellow Daisy Here I Come

Yellow Daisy Festival!!! 

Stone Mountain Georgia
September 7-10

Off I go to fulfill a life long dream to be a part of this festival. I grew up in Stone Mountain GA and went to this craft festival since I was a little girl with my mom every year! This place holds a dear place in my heart and I am so beyond excited to be selling my candles here this year!  I used to save up my babysitting money and go shopping here when I was just a little girl. I never knew that one day I would be in this festival selling my candles! It's truly amazing how life can come around full circle like this... I just feel so blessed and it's only possible because of all my beautiful customers who support me and love my candles. I am so thankful for each and every one of you :) 

I will be posting about my trip so stay tuned! And if you want to stay updated while its going on, be sure to check out my Facebook or Instagram.

Southern Girl


"Southern Girl"
New scent #3 is ready for her debut! "Southern Girl" was created to represent my southern roots... I'm a Georgia girl and this candle has a special place in my heart ❤️ It's iced tea, lemon and honeysuckle blended together! In the south we make our iced tea with love, I added lemon  because I love them and honeysuckle because that reminds me of home! It grew wild all over my back yard and I was constantly covered in it! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed creating it for you!

ELLIE





Another new scent for you guys!

And it's a special one...


Introducing "Ellie"... named after my beautiful daughter who has brought so much joy to my life! She is my world  and I truly believe the universe brought us together... this one is for you baby girl!
Lavender, vanilla and sandalwood blended together to make this sweet and unique scent... just like Ellie!

TROUBLE









TROUBLE
 
First new scent going out into the world has been named "Trouble"! Why? Because it smells like a guy. A guy who would be nothing but trouble, like the kind of guy who you know would definitely end up hurting you... the kinda guy who girls can't help but be drawn to. This one is for anyone who's been that girl, take this candle home and say goodbye to that guy for good! Light it up and burn it down...  #trouble #newscent #masculine #thatguy #burnit #formygirls#lovehurts #haha


New Scents In The Making.....

When life happens, you get inspired and your girl is in the zone! 

Stay tuned because these are all turning out really good  a bunch of new scents are in the making... 



Been spending long nights in the studio with the music up, vibes right, and pouring my heart and soul into these new beauties.#newstuff #creating #growing #changingitup

Mays scent of the month.....


Gemini is the scent of the month!!!










Naturally since I'm a Gemini born in May, this month I'm discounting this awesome candle! It's a really complex scent that's  light and fresh... and if you know a Gemini woman than you know we are complex, happy and usually like to keep things light! :) Not to mention we are all over the place!!! Well at least I am LOL and so is this scent in the best way imaginable... 

Everyone who smells it says something like this... "I love this, I don't know why but I do...." Which makes me smile because I have heard that a million times when it comes to why people love me... Best thing is to just go with it and don't ask yourself why! Haha


Happy May everybody! 




Positive Vibes

One major lesson this life has taught me so far... Everything happens for a reason and when things get turned upside down, there is usually something beautiful that comes out of it. Staying positive and open minded is how I get through the crazy times!


You can find me this Saturday at Wire Grass again! We will be there from now on on both the 1st and the 3rd Saturdays of the month! Come see me and get your fix and support local. 

Much Love

How to clean out your candle jars...

Recycling Your Containers!


Hi Everyone, 

As most of you know, if you bring back your used Hippie Candles, you will receive a discount on your purchase. (At Markets Only) 

I love seeing them come back to me after they have been enjoyed. They are like my babies coming back home after being put out into the world! But I thought I would share how I get them cleaned out just in case you wanted to clean them out yourself! :) Not that I mind doing it for you, I actually enjoy it as part of our daily/ weekly routine... 

STEP 1- GET THE LABELS OFF

I like to put a liberal amount of any kind of oil you have laying around on the label to let it soak for a few hours/ overnight.      (we have used baby oil, coconut, olive, vegetable and canola and they all work fine) You just pour some onto a paper towel and rub it liberally on each label and let it soak and they should peel right off. 

STEP 2- HEAT UP REMAINING WAX IN JAR

Once I've peeled off all the labels, I put the jars onto a baking sheet and pop them in the oven on warm just enough to melt them down. About 15 minutes is all it takes. 

STEP 3- DUMP OUT THE OLD WAX 

( IMPORTANT- DO NOT POUR THE WAX DOWN THE SINK... ITS GOES IN THE TRASH)

I have an old grill grate the I use on top of my trash can so I can multitask. But you can just pour it right into the bag and it shouldn't hurt it. 

STEP 4- FILL UP THE SINK...

Hot soapy water will help get everything off along with a magic eraser sponge... 

Once they are all clean you let the water cool so the left over wax will harden again and you can just scoop it out of the sink and throw it away. We use an old strainer/sifter... Then you can let the water out while running the faucet on hot for a second to keep your pipes clean. I have been doing it this way for years and have had no problems... 

Hope this helps and please keep recycling!

What we've been up to this week











Had a fun week taking it easy with miss Ellie and my family... Spent some much needed time getting my garden ready for the next grow season and teaching baby girl all about getting dirty! Then over the weekend we spent the day with my dad for his birthday on the golf course and surrounded by 5 little girls! 

Pure Chaos! Haha


Now its time to come back down to earth and get cranking in the candle studio! Next markets will be in 2 weeks... 

March 4- Wire Grass

March 5- Hyde Park




Night Time Vibes...









WORKING  LATE....

Up late in the candle shop tonight! It's too hard to pour candles during the day while Ellie is awake! LOL 

She is 15 months old and sooooo full of energy! I know it's only temporary but this momma is tired! 

So we have 2 Markets coming up this weekend: 

Saturday 2/4/2017 --Wire Grass Mall from 10-2 pm

Sunday 2/5/2017--  Hyde Park from 10-3 pm 

It's supposed to be absolutely gorgeous this weekend! So please come and say Hi, and support all the small local businesses at the farmers market this weekend! I know I need to pick up my monthly stash of Honey, Bread, Farm Fresh Eggs and of course whatever Locally Grown Produce is available this weekend! 

I Love My Farmers Market Life!!!!
