Labels and Boxes and Ribbons Oh My!

We're feeling a little bit like the Wizard of Oz travelers here at The Promise Candle, new things at every turn, interesting people coming out of the woodwork, and a goal at the end of our journey- to reach people! We've been labeling, boxing,"Promise Diary Tagging"- and loving every minute of it. The website should be FULLY up and running within the next 72 hours, and we're giddy with anticipation!

The Candles Are Here!!

WOW the scents! We thought long and hard about the scents of the candles. Should we have just ONE- a signature scent? If so, what? Everyone had a different opinion, and when it came down to it, we decided it would be best to offer something for everyone. Right now I'm burning the Fig scent, and it's unbelievable. My office manager is torn between Mysteria and Lime Basil as her favorite, and our web guru favors the French Vanilla. I think we made some great choices, and we're so excited.

People are already starting to respond to The Promise Candle, we've received emails from those who have "heard through the grapevine" about the candle, and they're already sharing their stories with us- it's so magical.  We can't wait to get this blog up and running on the website so we can post other people's stories and really start spreading the love!

The Candles Are On The Way!

Today the candles come in- I am SO excited. It's amazing how much support I've received in the short time since I came up with this idea until now. Everyone wants a candle, and more importantly they understand my need to make people happy. It's such a great feeling. When you come up with an idea about which you are SO incredibly passionate, you're going to go for it, no matter what, but it ALWAYS helps when people GET it and support you!

Within the next two weeks we want to have candles out there in the world! We'll be attaching labels, packing boxes, and running our own little manufacturing plant here, and I don't think I've been so excited about ANYTHING in years.
