My First Etsy Front Page

Here is a screen shot of a front page My candles was on on Thursday. It's my first time on the front page of Etsy and it pretty much made my day. I also got a little shot out in the Guest Curator chat last night for my work with Bread and Badger on our hand cut and etched wine bottle candles. It was just the boost I needed to brighten my week.

AC is now at Bella Sirota in Jantzen Beach

Autumn Comfort Candles are now available at the cruelty free shop Bella Sirota located in the Jantzen Beach Super Center near the Target entrance. I'm am really excited because she is currently in the process of moving to a larger shop just a few doors down from her current location in the mall. It's a great shop with lots of local hand crafted and Vegan only items! So if live in the area stop on by and check it out!

Our Kitchen Counters - Before & After

We have spent the last several days getting rid of the chipped white Formica counters in our kitchen and replacing them with large stone tiles. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out considering we are pretty new to tile work. Here are some before and after photos from our project.

We cut the tile first and laid it all out.

And the end result.....

And yes I know my kids are in almost every photo. They hear the camera and come a runnin'. Next we will replace the horrible flooring. But for now I'm happy with the update.
