Tis The Season

24 Dec

Wishing you all the Hope, Wonder, and Joy that the Season can bring!

“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.” ― Hamilton Wright Mabie

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.  ~Norman Vincent Peale

 

Christmas is not in tinsel and lights and outward show. The secret lies in an inner glow. It’s lighting a fire inside the heart. Good will and joy a vital part. It’s higher thought and a greater plan. It’s glorious dream in the soul of man. -Wilfred A. Peterson, The Art of Living

The xmas holidays have this high value: that they remind Forgetters of the Forgotten, & repair damaged relationships.”
– Mark Twain, from a letter to Carlotte Welles, December 30, 1907Christmas, the holiday season, is, at its best, a time of remembering who and what is important. A time of healing.

Merry Christmas to the forgetters, the forgotten, and all who believe in our power to heal all the ills, hatreds, and misfortunes that at times plague us all.

 Falalallalalallala!  The Christmas holiday is my favorite season of the year!  I try my best to spend Christmas back east every year in Pittsburgh where I’m from.  However, this year I’ve decided to festively enjoy my time in sunny Los Angeles.  I have to admit I’m totally envious of all these Facebook posts I see about “being snowed in” and “family parties with all the comfort food,” not that I need

Although I’m desperately envious of all the fixings I’m going to miss this year I’ve tried to keep myself busy here.  Some of you are aware that I have a hobby of making soy couture candles.  I had a roommate years ago whose father owned Archipelago Botanicals.  My roommate offered me a business partnership so we opened an Ebay store and liquidated for Archipelago.  The name of my business was My Couture Candles.  I quickly became a power seller and had a polished reputation.  Unfortunately I had to close down that business but I never forgot how happy  I was in that time.  Many customers emailed me and told me they would follow me wherever I went.  It was a really wonderful experience.  I am extremely grateful for that opportunity, so thank you Chaya for that.  Six months ago I decided to dabble again.  I didn’t have the luxury of being able to sell Archipelago so I decided to work on my own line.  Here are a few photos of the candles I have been selling.  Thank you so much to all my friends who have purchased my Holiday Candles and continue to support me in my endeavors!  I’m really looking forward to flourishing in 2013!Image
