Divine Love Prosperity Candle, How To Make It Work For You

Just in time for the holidays is the Divine  Love Prosperity Candle.  This candle is a 3 layer candle and  boy  it was a challenge to make. In fact, this candle isn't even my creation. this was a custom  made candle that a  customer asked me to  make  which ended  up something that was really  fun to make. I  would have never thought about making a candle like this but after  so much love and work into my creation, I finally  got it made  the way it needed to bring the right energy  into this candle.

Skip the Traditional Pumpkin and Try a Pumpkin Roll

 LIBBY'S® Pumpkin Roll

It's  always traditional to  have a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving but  for the last  5  years I have always  made a  pumpkin roll  for  dessert which is like my signature dish for  dessert. My family always  looks forward to it. So if you are needing a change of  pace I highly recommend  this dish. It's one of my  favorites. I  think the hardest part  is  rolling the cake because you need to gentle or the cake can crack. But if you like me, as long as it tastes great that is what matters so here is what you will need  for  this recipe:

Shop Feature: The Book Whisperer

 Decorative Box, Jewelry Box, Trinket Box, Treasure Box,  "TREASURE" in Vintage Steampunk Style

 This weeks shop feature is The Book Whisperer. The shop itself  specializes in  making smash books, junk journals, scrapbooks and photo albums. My favorite item is the decorative box from above. to find out more about this shop,  read below.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop
  I’m a dog lover and one of my favorite shows is Cesar Milan’s program, TheDogWhisperer. I stole the name of my shop from him. (I hope he doesn’t mind.) When I first opened my shop, my artistic focus was on crafting ‘smashbooks’ by upcycling old books into new, gorgeous journals and scrapbooks. I felt I was rescuing and rehabilitating books, just as Cesar rescues and rehabilitates dogs. Since then, my focus has shifted more into the realm of Junk Journals, Photo Albums and other papercrafts… but the name is the same. =)

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
  Every item in my shop is completely, totally, utterly handcrafted. I start with chipboard and glue and tape and pretty papers and buttons and… and.. and.. you get the point. I never know how an item will turn out when I begin, I just dig in and let the project flow of its’ own accord. Sometimes I’m really pleased with the final design, sometimes not so much. The beauty of papercrafting is that for those ‘not so much’ moments… I can always cover up the unpleasing area with something more pleasing.

Get Creative With Casting Spells

After over  a year of opening up  my store, I have  discovered that I do  have a creative  side to things even though  back then I thought creative meant  more of an Art like drawing  or painting. But I soon realize that being creative  in even  spell casting is even more fun and  magical.  So here I am  to share something really important with you when you cast your own spells. Be creative! That's right.  What does that mean?  It means to go with the flow and  learn to  trust your own self  in  selecting the right magical items for your  situation. Often, I have found customers asking me to  recommend which candles work best for their situation. And  while,  I can recommend items that work best from my view point, I have discovered that when I tell customers to pick what they keep been drawn to it works best.  It's funny  how that works, but  it has been  very effective.

Shop Feature: Tiny Tipis

 Dream Catcher in Blue - All Natural - One of a Kind - Unique

This weeks shop feature is Tiny Tipis by Cory B.  The shop specializes in making  miniature teepees, canvas bags, dream catchers etc... So be sure to stop by to check out what this shop has to offer... I love the dream catchers actually so I would recommend them to people to have a peaceful sleep. Read more about the shop right  below.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
I started making my Tipis before I made anything else. When I didn't have room to make full size ones I started making miniatures and scale models. Tiny Tipis just seemed like a natural fit!

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?

No one else makes miniature tipis that are authentic. No one else makes Canvas Grocery Bags and Market Totes from the high quality canvas that I do. No one else makes custom organizers for customers from just a quick photo. I do canvas better than anyone out there and I'm not shy about saying it.

The Power of Sage

White Sage Loose Leaf  for cleansing, remove negativity, wisdom longevity, protection, wishes

For one most people  know that  sage is great for cleansing  negative energy.  The most common way is  to light sage and  blow  through the house even  in the corners. Some people like to do a  through a sweep of their home but i can also  understand that  sometimes even white sage been  lit this way be rather smoky and perhaps  its a bit sensitive  for others but that doesn't mean that there aren't any other  alternatives out there which is why I have  created a  few more sage  products to give  options for you decide what works best for you.
