New Items and more

Greetings everyone!
We have been busy adding new items up on the website! We are excited over a new line we listed up yesterday! These are resins, hand rolled incense and attar oil! We tested the products first to make sure they would be a great add as well keep all our friends happy. And they will!
We tested the scent strength, burning times, and linger times. And they do meet our satasfaction of the companies claim. They are a line from Ramakrishnanda and all Resin, Incense and oils are hand made/mixed and blessed by Swami Ramakrishnananda and followers. These are a wonderful addition to our shop and we do hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Some answers to frequent questions about this line: Are they strong? Yes very one incense stick will fill the whole house for at least 2 days! A teaspoon of the resin on a burning charcoal berquet will fill the whole house and last for days!  just a few drop of oil in a burner will fill the house for days, just 3 drops on an oil pad for oil lockets will keep for about a week.
Do you use them with the incense you make? Yes it complements very well!
Are there sample kits i can get? Not yet but we are working on that! We are compiling and working the the supplier to see if we can do this, It might take some time but we really believe in these products otherwise we wouldn't have put them up on our website!

We have added calenders, almanacs, Athems, magnets, scrying bowls, Posters, and lots more! And guess what we still have tons more to add! Remember we need your votes on the species poll! Vote and share it we need your help! Have a wonderful week everyone BB!

Free Recipe: Witch Fingers

MMmmm Nothing bets eating Evil Witch Fingers. Willow has some strange off hours, she spends her free time hunting down those evil witches who eat harmless children, well thats her story and she's sticking to it!

Yield 5 dozen (6 if you use an 1/2 tablespoon)

1 cup butter soften (may subsatute for margerin but will effect the dough)
1 cup powder sugar
1 egg
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cups flower
1 tsp salt
3/4 cups whole almonds Blanched
1 tube red decorator gel (or can use light corn syrup died red with food coloring)

In a bowl beat together butter, sugar egg almond extract, & vanilla. Bet in flour and salt. You can now decide to divide the dough and add food coloring before you chill your dough. Cover and refredgerate for 30 minutes.
While dough is chilling out blanch your almonds. Put your almonds in a bowl pour in about 1 cup of boiling water let soak about 1 minute. Pour out hot water and pour in cold water for about 1 minute. Strain and rub the skins off with a towl. I find its easier to just peel them like an orange after their hot and cold bath.
Useing a tablespoon or mealon baller scoup your dough into 5 dozen balls. Roll each ball into finger shapes add the almond at the tip and make knuckle creses with your butter knife or very clean thumb nail.
Preheat oven to 325 bake for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool for 3 minutes. Lift up almond squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed replace almond so the gel will ooze out.

Rember presntation is everything WIllow finds telling a story about how she came to have the fingers adds to the fun. Also consider making fun tray labels. Be creative have fun enjoy these wonderful cookies!

Things From Willow's Mom

If you noticed we added a section to the left of your screen. These things are made by Willow's mom. She can no longer make things such as quilts and stuffed animals. Her health is deteriorating and causing many concerns for Willow and her family. Willow's mom suffers from many ailments the major ones that cause constant pain is musclefibrosia and chronic arthritis. She also suffers from early signs of dementia as well as being diabetic. These 4 bears are her last works. Although willow is going through the storage trying to get pics of everything that's left. These are the last things that were made.
Each bear comes with a removable ribbon bow that's tied around there necks. They do not have eye's our main concern were infants and toddlers who like to put things in there mouths. With the new rules on kids items we just thought it would be safer to just leave the eyes off.
These are primitive style/ Country type bears and are big and soft. Willows kids use them as pillows the can lay on on the floor like those big pillows. If you find the price is too high please keep in mind that a lot of time went into these bears and they are machine washable and dryable (just ask Willows kids!).

Free Recipie: ButterBeer

Nothing beets that nice warm drink on a cool crisp day. After much reading online and through those wonderful Harry Potter books Willow devised her own Butter Beer recipes. She has several and even though she may have gotten the idea from others she truly made them her own. Its all in presentation and Garnishing!
Did you know ButterBeer started back in the Medieval days? It was a very popular beer, then died for a while. It wasn't brought back to life until recently. Although it never really disaperd completely.

Version 1 Alcoholic Butter Beer
  • 1 2 liter Cream Soda
  • 1 cup butterscotch schnapps
  1. Chill the cream soda, Willow usually places it in the fridge 2 days before and puts it in the very back (the coldest part. For warm beer chill for about 30 minuets or not chill at all.
  2. Pour all into a punch bowl slowly. Willow also uses a chilled punch bowl for her cold version. For warm do not chill the bowl.
  3. pour about 1 cup of the butterscotch schnapps into the cream soda. It will fizzle some. 
  4. Garnish with ice if desire Willow likes to use Butterscotch hard candy in each cup.

Version 2 non alcoholic
  • 1 2 liter cream soda
  • Butterscotch Ice cream topping (smucker's sugar free spoonable topping is what Willow uses)
  1. As above chill the cream soda
  2. Pour gently into a punch bowl leaving about 1 cup out.
  3. Add about 1/4-1/2 cup of butterscotch topping stirring gently will fizzle some.
  4. For warm beer don't chill.
This next recipe is from by far one of the best we have ever tried!

Prep Time: :5

Cook Time: :10


  • 1 pint real vanilla ice cream (use a brand that includes vanilla seed specks for best flavor or make your own)
  • 1/4 cup real butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon butterscotch extract
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 quart apple cider
  • Apple slices for garnish, optional


  1. On medium speed, beat together vanilla ice cream, butter, butterscotch extract, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well-combined. Pour into a container and re-freeze.
  2. When ready to serve, gently heat apple cider in a saucepan until steaming hot.
  3. Place 1 scoop of ice cream in a thick soda glass or large mug. Top with steaming apple cider. Garnish with apple slices, if desired. 
  • Willow heats her cider in her crock pot she puts the cider on as soon as she has her cup of coffee on the day of the party. She mixes her ice cream mixture the night before. By the time of her party her cider is hot and the ice cream is ready. With her trusty freezer she uses Glass beer mugs and places 1-2 scoops of the ice cream in each mug and slips them back into the freezer. She allows her guest to go over and serve themselves. For the kids she places one scoop into small kid size cups and pours it for them. She usually has to make a triple recipe for her parties its just that darn good!  Willow also enjoys adding apple rings instead of wedges to her mugs. To make rings simply core out the apples and slice into rings. she then cuts a slit to allow the ring to sit on the rim of the cup. She likes to use Fuji apples as they are sweet and tasty. Experiment and find your own grove!

We hope you enjoy these tasty drinks!

    Free Idea: Creepy Ice

    "Eek whats that floating in my drink?" squeeled one guest. "Why it looks like a dragons eye, Did you know its good luck to eat the dragons Eye!" Stated WIllow as she went to tend to other things.

    Okay so its not a real dragons eye but its tasty and keeps the drinks cold.

    Dragon Eyes is actually Grapes and dried fruit!
    What you need:
    • Seedless grapes, any kind these will be the main part of your dragons eyes, we like green and dark purple.
    • Dried fruit, most use raises but we don't we use cranberries, blueberries, cherries  and other dried berries we can get.
    1. Wash and dry your grapes
    2. Cut your dried fruit in halves we do them in quarters or fourths for smaller slits.
    3. Take the tip of your knife and cut a small slit and not very deep from one end to another of the grape. Pinch open slightly, not to hard or you will crush the grape (mmm grape juice in me eye!).
    4. Place a piece of dried fruit in and put finished eyes in a coverd bowl, container extra and place into the freezer. 
    5. How we freeze our eyes: we use ice cube trays just put an eye in each slot fill with water cover and freeze. Once solid we pop them into another container that we can seal. When its party time simply place the ice in cups or in the punch bowl. We leave some in a container for those wanting to place a little extra ice into theire cups.

    Body Parts Ice
    • Body parts gummy candy (Oriental Trading usually have the gummy Eye candy check often as they go quickly!)
    • Ice cube trays
    • Food coloring (optional)
    1. Place a gummy in each slot of the ice tray 
    2. In a measuring cup add water and a few drops of food coloring this is optional we like neaon colors as they glow slightly in the black lights. If you fear someone has dye allergies you could always do several non dyed.
    3. Pour water, cover and freeze, Enjoy. we like to have ours in the punch bowls as the ice melts the body parts will become exposed.

    Flies and other bugs in my ice!
    • Toy bugs such as flies, spiders, cockroaches extra we like realistic ones.
    • Ice cube trays
    • food coloring (optional)
    1. Wash or rinse the bugs throughly we want to make sure no dust or dirt is on these buggers!
    2. Place a bug in each slot of the ice cube tray.
    3. As above you can add died water for special effects we like to use juice from our punch to freeze our bugs.
    You can subsatute water for a main juice ingreadent in your punch Below is one of our Witches brew we make.

    Willow's Witches Brew:
    • 36 ounces unsweeten apple juice concentrait thawed and undiluted
    • 4 cups Cranberry juice coctail
    • 3 medium oranges
    • 32 ounce gingerale (chilled)
    • 4 cups water (or 4 cups vodka)
    • 1 gallon lime sherbet, softend
    • ice or freaky hand ice (Target now carries hand ice molds!)
    1. Mix in a gallon pitcher the following: Apple juice, Cranberry Juice, & Water/Vodka
    2. when its about party time pour the mix into your cauldron or punch bowl, slice the oranges into thin rings. and place into punch.
    3. Gently pour the ginger ale into the punch.
    4. Place ice and sherbet into the punch. Be gental with the sherbet as it will make the brew fizzle. Serve with a cakle.
    You can use Dry Ice if you like but if you do use Dry Ice Make sure its the Food Grade (ask the store if its food grade!) and never touch dry ice with your hands or injest dry ice. It can cause major injuries.

    Freaky Hand Ice:
    use a powder free latex glove add in fruit gummies (if you like) and water. Dont over fill the glove you want it to look like a real hand. Tie the end and place onto a plate and freeze. We do this the night before and pull it out just before go time. Cut the glove off  and slide into brew. Target has hands feet ice molds durring halloween, they come with gummy worms, and color. If used properly the mold will last a long time and can be used over and over again! Great investment!

    Enjoy spook yall later!

    Free Idea: Halloween Invites

    This year Willow took Inspiration from Martha Stewart's Severed Finger Invites and made them her own way.

    What you will need:
    • Witch finger candy pretzel mold
    • Plaster
    • Cups
    • Stirring Rods
    • Old Ivy Acrylic Paint
    • Licorice Acrylic Paint
    • Paint Brush
    • Acrylic Shiny Spray Sealer
    • Coffin Treat Box (Down load here)
    • Your Invites
    • Model Magic Putty (or silly putty will work)
    • Ribbon (We used leftover Halloween ribbon)
    • Self adhesive Magnets
    • Brown riffita or garden twine
    Clean and dry your witch finger mold. Place the model clay where the finger ends and just before the grove that holds the pretzel rod. Make sure you place enough there to be even with the top of the mold. This will allow you to have thick fingers. Mix and pour your plaster in small batches as directions state. Let dry for the full 24 hours. Discard the pieces of clay after you make all the fingers you plan too!

    Paint the green part of the finger first then the nails. After the fingers dry take them outside and spray your acrylic sealer. Let the fingers dry for the recommended time that your spray says too. While they are drying cut your ribbon to about 3-4 inches or smaller if you can manage tying small bows. Cut about 1 inch size magnets.
    Make your treat boxes as the instructions say.
    Invitations: Ours were made on the Avery post card paper printed front and back. One side was a menu the other had games, time, place who to talk to, and general reminder about dressing up. Roll up into scrolls as tight as possible and tie with twine.

    After the fingers are dry tie your ribbon around your finger and place a magnet on the back. Place it in the coffin and an invite.

    If you noticed we have something on the inside of the lid we have:
    Your Invited to a Halloween Party
    time and date and contact number and e-mail. We printed them out using small labels.
    Once everything is inside Tie up with twin and hand them to friends.

    Willow made over 40 of these the last week.
    You can also use favor boxes and the fake moss method as well. But we wanted something more fun as they were passed out to Willow's Kids Classrooms. These also make great party favors! Sure to make people talk!

    If you are wanting a craft kit just ask willow will hook you up!

    Free Recipie: Chicken Legs, Wings and nuggets

    Your wondering what is so special about chicken wings? Willow's wings and nuggets are always a hit at there parties or at the evening table. The secret is in the eggs! No seriously its whats in the eggs!

    Items needed:
    • 2 medium sized bowls
    • whisk
    • food processor or potato masher
    The Ingredients:
    • 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs for gluten free use 1/2 cup soy flower and 1/2 cup rice flower
    • 1/4 cup flask seed meal
    • Chicken: Breast washed dried and cut into bite sized chunks or you can use wings, thighs, drumsticks.
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    1. Steam and mash up the sweet potato and measure out 1/4 cup. One medium sized sweet potato should be plenty. Place it in one of the bowls. Add the 2 large eggs and whisk. This will be the egg batter you will dunk your chicken into.
    2. In another bowl add your dry ingredients.
    3. Spray a skillet with non stick spray and heat over med high. Once hot add in 2 tablespoons olive oil.
    4. Coat the chicken in the egg bath then into the bread crumb place onto hot skillet. Cook nuggets about 5-7 minuets on each side until no longer pink.
    5. If using legs, wings, thighs or quarters heat the oven to 350 use a shallow pan spray with non stick spray and add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan about 2-4 tablespoons. Coat chicken place in pre heated oven and cook about 30-40 minuets about half way turn chicken. Cook until no longer pink and clear juice flows from the chicken.

    This is a great way to trick your kids to eat healthy as well as yourself. The sweet potato sweetens the chicken just right. One could add just a tad of salt to the chicken before placing into the eggs. Willow doesn't and they seam to go quickly. You can make the chicken nuggets a week before the party just let cool down and then freeze. Simply place onto cookie sheet and slide into a preheated oven of 400 for about 10 minuets.
    Dipping sauces Willow just places Ketchup, Bar-b-Que, Honey Muster, Muster, Wasabie, and other sauces out. Simple, Light and very satisfying. Don't take her words for it simply try it yourself!

    Free Recipe: Double Chacolate Carmel Apples

    Is there anyone that didn't love candy and caramel apples as a kid? They were at every party and some people would give them out for the trick-or-treaters. Willow dosen't wast time with those store bout kits (They are okay but not her liking), but to truly honor the ancestors and her guests she serves these gourmet apples at her Samain feast. Everyone seams to love them so there might be some sanity to her apple dipping!

    Prep time 25 minutes for the seasoned apple dunker for a first timer it may take longer which is perfectly fine. Remember don't stress over it.
    Chill time 1 hour 45 minutes (may leave in longer if you so wish it.
    Serves 4, Willow scaled this recipe down for the recipe guidelines. Her batches are far more then this and she uses bigger equipment to make all of hers.
    She makes these morning of the party (she gets up mighty early!)

    Equipment needed for this project:
    • nonstick spray or wax paper
    • Medium size bowl that can fit in a microwave (if making more then this recipe follow the stove top directions on the caramels)
    • Backing cookie sheet small (is making bigger batch use the sizes that will fit in the fridge)
    • Mixing spoons
    • 4 apples
    • 4 Popsicle sticks
    • 16 ounces of caramel candies
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 10 ounces of dark chocolate
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 4 ounces white chocolate
    Remove the stems of the apples, wash and dry, then insert the sticks into the stem ends. Cover a backing cookie sheet with nonstick spray and/or waxed paper. Willow puts wax paper in her cookie sheets then spray with the nonstick spray, she doesn't want to take any chances! In a medium bowl, microwave the caramels and water for about 2 minutes, stirring at every 1 minutes, until the caramels are completely melted. Dip the apples in the caramel and twirl or spoon the top until coated. Refrigerate on backing sheet for about 30 minutes (a little longer wont hurt them!).

    In a medium bowl (even the same bowl after you wash the leftover caramel out or do what willow does and ask dear hubby to scrap as much as possible before washing it) microwave the dark chocolate and butter for about 2 minutes, stirring at every 40 seconds until chocolate is completely melted. Dip the apples in the chocolate and twirl or spoon over the tops until coated. Refrigerate on cookie sheet while malting the white chocolate. In medium bowl microwave the white chocolate for about 2 minutes, stirring every 40 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted. Drizzle over top of apples and refrigerate for at least an hour.

    Free Recipe: All Hallows Eve Cider

    This is one of our favorite ciders for any time, although its in popular demand at our gatherings we have to make huge batches at a time. The fallowing recipe is scaled down for 12 1 cup servings. We always like more in our cups ;)

    What you will need Is a crock pot (Slow Cooker)that can hold 4-5 quarts. We use the biggest one we can find.
    Tea ball or coffee filter that you can place lose spices into then tie up.

    12 whole cloves
    1/2 gallon of apple cider
    2/3 cup red hot candies
    1/4 cup dry orange drink mix (Tang works great!)
    1 qt. water

    1) place cloves in the tea bag
    2) combine everything into the crock pot (slow cooker)
    3) cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours
    4) serve hot

    ** We like to add Orange slices, Lemon Slices (with the peels on wash before cutting and putting into the brew! To garnish we place cinnamon sticks in the cups.
    We like to make this the week before the party and let it cool off to room temp. With a funnel we gently pour it into gallon jugs. or you can do pitchers. To warm up we simply pour into our huge pot (like for canning or pasta making or those seafood steaming parties, yep the biggest pot) and turn on med low. we start the heating process 2 hours before the party.
    Please keep in mind our recipe is multiplied by 4.
    This is also great on those chilly camping trips simply make before pour into a sealable jug and heat up at night.
    Please note camp fires will heat it up quickly and will become very hot!

    Free Recipie: Kitty Litter Cake

    As Willow sets out the party food last year one of the guests about fainted when they saw what she was serving up. This was a omg that's nasty faint not omg that's scary faint. Every year Willow makes her famous Kitty Litter Cake. Although she doesn't serve it up in the kitty box anymore (just hasn't replaced it yet) she uses her casserole dish fits in the fridge much better then the litter box.
    The fallowing pics are from Last Years anniversary Party.
    So now your wondering whats so different about her recipe compared to the others? Well its in the cake! No seriously Willow tried many different combination to get that yummy but realistic look to hers. Her cake has much more disgusting surprised in it then one would thought.
    Okay time to get to the supplies list:
    2 Cake pans or one big cake pan
    Cooling Rack
    Blender or food processor (stick blender will work too as well as a hand mixer)
    2 Bowls (as big as you can get I use my Big Chip bowls)
    Mixing spoons and Rubber spatulas
    And the normal Measuring cups and spoons for your cake mixes.

    *Normally Willow would make the cakes from scratch but this recipe gives the Boxes version to help cut time down, She suggests to make the cake the day before the party! It will keep in the fridge.

    1 Package Spice Cake Mix
    1 Package White Cake Mix
    1 package white sandwich cookies
    Green good Coloring
    Tootsie Rolls (small bag should be plenty)
    * Hersey Kisses
    1 pakge of vanilla Pudding (*Big family size box!)
    1 New Kitty Litter Box
    1 New Kitty Litter Pooper Scooper
    (If your like willows fridge deep glass pan will work)

    Prepare the cake mixes and back according to directions. Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble. Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in the blender. They tend to stick, scrape often. Set aside 1/4 cup of crumbs add a few drops of green food coloring and mix with a fork.

    When cakes are cooled to room temp, crumble into a Large bowl. Toss with half of the reaming cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. Gently combine. Line new, clean kitty litter box (*Willow uses freezer paper and tape this helps with easy clean up. Trim paper where needed) Put Mixture into box.

    Put 3 unwrapped tootsie rolls on a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape the tootsie rolls into realistic "Business". Repeat as many times as you like. *Willow places a Hersey kiss on a plate then add 3 tootsie rolls on top heat for a few seconds. She discovered this gives the look that a certain cat had "Problem or ate something bad for its tummy" Play and have fun making the nasty poop! Don't forget to bury a few surprises inside the cake we want this to be realistic! We also roll the tootsie rolls between our fingers to make that long realistic bunching.

    Scatter the Green cookie crumbs lightly on top. Some areas should have more concentrated Green. This will look like the chlorophyll in the kittly box.

    Serve with the pooper scouper.
    Serves 24

    Support Our Troops and More!

    Over the last few weeks we have gotten a few e-mails about Supporting our Pagan troops. We have received all sorts of questions. We broke them down to the most common ones that were asked.

    48 for Larry Radiothon and Silent Auction

    we have donated a few items to help raise funds for Larry. We all have had our fair share of hard times, and I believe we are a group of people that can do what we can. If you don't bid on items at least donate $5.00 to help Larry and his family. The Following is his story with links to BlockHead radio.

    48 for Larry
    Larry Hamm over at Chelsea Lynn Designs on Artfire is a friend of many in the world of handmade, he is also the voice of The Crazy Train on Blockhead Radio. Larry has a fantastic wife Janet, and an 8 year old son Jacob who live with him in Lansing, NC deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Larry is a friend to everyone and just an all around swell guy. He is most definitely the "shirt off your back" kind of friend. Right now, all of Larry´s friends and Blockhead Radio are teaming up to help him out in a tough time.

    Larry is a disabled diabetic who currently has lost his health insurance. His medication alone monthly is over $2,000. Larry is not receiving disability, he has not been approved yet. His wife is the only source of income and she doesn´t make enough to cover his medications. Larry´s doctors have given him an outlook of only 18 months to live if he doesn´t receive a $17,000 gastric bypass surgery as soon as possible. Larry and his family need all the help from their family and friends they can get! Jacob and Janet need Larry to hang around here with them as long as he possibly can! All of his friends surely want Larry to stick around too!

    Tart or Tort?

    That's the age old question about the wax tarts. My mom calles them Scent chips. We are not sure what to call them but they are wonderful for setting a nice feeling. So I decided to show what my Tarts/Torts/Scent Chips look like.
    The one pictured to the left is Gardenia and that's the natural color of the palm wax. The slight color is from the anointing Oils we use. Yes we do use Scents as well abs the natural anointing oils. I had a bunch of Halloween treat bag's left over from my kids class room partys last year so I decided to Use those up. Made intreasting conversations at Freedom Hill Trade Days!
    For this Melting dimistration I decided to go with a red tart that is scented with rain (so good!). I just love how this wax takes the colors they come out so vibrant, plus that crystal look is really neet in my own opinion! Each Bag is weighed to 6 ounces, which could mean quite a bit of our tarts for $5.00 a bag. Good deal? We would like to think so!
    For this melting demo I am useing a ceramic oil warmer you can use an electric one, or even the soapstone ones we have in our online shop. Mmm that red is scrumptious! So to the left I have the rain scented wax cube in my ceramic oil warmer which rakes a tea light inside. Not sure if you can see the crystal look to well in this picture.
    Once I lit the tea light it only took about 5 minuets for the wax to melt. this palm wax has a high heat rate and we find that it holds the scent/oils very well. The Scent will weakend within time and becuse of this we pour them as they are orderd. We try not to have too much in actual candle or Tart form. We know how much you all love strong smelling scents and doing it this way has given our customers what they want! Stron smelling candles and tarts!
    So this is what it looks like about 5 minuets into the warming phase. It reminds me of some sort of horror movie where something is sinking in a vat of blood lol. (Yes willow has lost her mind, I mean my mind ;) )
    At this point the scent is really strong as it is being released and its not mealted all the way. This expermint was done in our kitchen. My hubby could smell it at this phase about 10 feet away. The cealing fans and ac didnt help the kitchen table is under the ac vents and in the living room is big cealing fan that we have on high all year round. Our home isnt made for scent traveling which helps in the kitchen when i make these little lovelies.
    The Pic to the left is just about 2 minuets later now its starting to mealt faster. Mealt baby mealt was all I could say at this point lol.

    With it finnally mealted in about 8 minuets within 10 it was starting to spread into at least 3 rooms. Kitchen, Dinning where it was sitiing, and the edge of the living room. At this point all Ii really could think of was what a nice pool of blood, I mean wax! I had to use the flash for this visual.
    So thats our tarts in a nutshell They arnt the dancy big rings or anything just squars of solid wax with your choice of color and aroma. These will be up on our main site in a few days but feel free to request a custom order! We do gladely take those!
    Right pic is when the wax cools off and rehardens which takes about 20 minuets in about 2 hours you can pop it out. One tart is good for hours of heating or up to 3-4 2 hour heating intervils before the scent is totally gone. I usually let it mealt and add in a few drops of oil to re perfume it up. You can get oils from us as well. In this pic you can really see the crystalization process of the palm wax.

    Did i mention we also give out a free tart with every order?

    Have a great weekend!

    Nacogdoches Trade Days

    We Spent fathers day weekend at Nacogdoches Trade Days. We were so excited to do our first show in years. We ended up having a miserable time. The weather was Hot, Humid and windy. Our booth location was a nightmare, low visibility bad crowd location. By the time people saw us they had allready spent theire money on food and beverages. At one point the hubby went waling around to talk to some of the other vendors. Most didnt even make theire booth fees let alone gas, food and lodging. We were in the hole with this show as well. We sold 3 low cost items and that was about it. We did get pics! We will be doing a diffrent show on The 4th of July weekend on Freedom Hill, which is located on hwy 59 just outside of Lufkin Texas going twords Nacogdoches.
