just my thoughts!


Ok so I was looking on glitter graghics today for some cool sayings to put on my myspace profile.  And I found this. 





It made me think of myself.  And for once I can say I found something in writing that was really me.  

So Perfection that is what I want to talk about.
In my eye and I do belive in the eyes of many others.  There really isn't anyone in the world that is perfect.  So why does everyone strive for Perfection?

I think being perfact would be boring.  I am glad I am how I am, and if it wasn't for the little mess ups I made in life I wouldn't be me...

So I say on to you don't strive to be perfect.  
Have fun with ever breath you take. 
You only live once.  
So please do what makes you happy and don't worry about what others think.

The holidays are coming!!!

So what are we going to do to help others this holiday season?

Well we have some soaps that didn't turn out the way we wanted them to so we are going to bring them to the Salvation Army here.  They will then in return hand them out to people in need.  

I also think I am going to volunteer to be a bell ringer this year.  So the Salvation Army can collected money to get things for families in need.


And last but not least we are thinking about doing an adopt a family this year with the help of our friends and people that love our products.  

This is what we are thinking about doing please let us know if it is a good idea or not.

We are going to offer that if someone buys a Pillar Set for $40.00 we will then in turn take $10.00 of that and use it to get stuff for our adopt a family.  I was thinking we would buy the stuff for the family mostly off of etsy.  There are a few things we can't get on there but most of it we can.  Let us know what you all think.

I (Erin) have also started making hats and scarfs that I am donating to the Salvation Army as well.  I just love this time of year.  Where I get to show people how much I care.  

P.S. please let us know what you think in a comment or email us at erin@crazytimescandles.com

Thank you all and have a creative day.  :)

What do you think???

Well Dave and I were thinking about splitting our shop.

We were thinking that because we have our shop name as
CrazyTimesCandles that it might be throwing people off.

So let us know what you think.
Should we keep our etsy shop as crazytimescandles and list both our candles and soaps in that shop.
Or should we open a new shop for our Soaps???

We sell so much soap in our shop but I think some people are not seeing our soaps because of it saying crazytimescandles.

The bad part about it is that we would be starting all over with a shop for soaps and some people might be thrown off with us not having any feedback.

The other bad part is that people wouldn't see our candles as much.

The pluses about it is that people would be able to see all of our soaps for the people that are looking for soaps and not have to see the candles if they didn't want to.

We just don't know what to do with this. Please help!!!

Happy Day!!!

I'm so excited today.
My cousin Tara Came to see us.
See she is 32 weeks pregnant and she is not supposed to travel tell after she has the baby the doctor gave her and OK to do it this last time before the baby comes.
Tara used to come up and visit every other weekend and we haven't seen her in over a month. She left here about 5 minutes ago to go by her sister to get her baby swing before her sister goes to work. Then she is coming back to us for the night.
I can't wait for her to get back here :)


Other then that Dave is down starts working on making some more Ocean Breeze Salt Spa Bars because that is our BEST selling soap :)
I told him you might as well just make 2 batches right way so that is what he is doing.


The kids are over excited as well with it being Saturday and getting to spend some time with me and there Aunt Tara.
We are all going to play monopoly when she gets back.

Cameron's Hat and Scarf




So last night I finally finished Cameron's hat and Scarf.

Woo Hoo I am so excited to show off my handsome little man.

So take some time and look at this cute little guy for me.



This might be the cutest and sweetest little boy you will ever see in your life!

Ok maybe not the cutest to everyone but he is my son so you know how that goes.


He is the little boy that helps anyone and everyone that might need help. I am not just saying he is a great kid because he is mine, He has the biggest heart I have ever seen in anyone.

He puts everyone and everything in front of himself.

He gives and gives and never asks for anything in return.

To find that in any kids these days is hard.

So anyway that is enough about my handsome little man.

Let me know what you think of his hat and Scarf :)

Thank you for reading this.

Oh and this last picture is really for his Auntie Tara...

What a Great Day!!!

Ok so we had to run to the post office to ship some orders out like we do every Monday. Then we had to get gas in the van. We were excited about that as well because gas was only $3.39 a gallon. Woo hoo happy dance time.

Then we had to get some Kitty Litter for our little Princess so we went to Target. It was my first time out of the house sense I had surgery so I wanted to look around a little bit. And as all parents do we went right for the Toys because we didn't have the kids with us. We went right were we always go to the Clearance spot on a back wall.




And What do I see!!!!





A
3/4 Size Washburn Hannah Montana Acoustic Guitar


The one thing I know my daughter wants more then anything in the world. So we had to get it. :) They normally are $90.00 and it was on clearance for 22.75 What a great deal. That is just the prefect gift for Christmas.

We also got our Son Cameron some Star Wars Ships but they were normal price. But that is ok because us getting Alyse's present on clearance made it so we can get more for both of them.

It always makes us so happy when we can get our kids stuff they want or like. Our kids are easy to please but it is always nice to get them stuff they really really wanted.
So that was our exciting day today.

The Grass :)



Oh August 23 I was looking around shops and found a Saturday Night Special in TheBumbleBeeStudio's shop. All we had to do is pay shipping. What a great deal.


This is what it looked like when we got it. So cute right.


We were very excited to have the kids plant the seeds.












They had lots of fun doing it as well. I do have to say that The Windowsill Wheat Grass grows like crazy.












TheBumbleBeeStudio
has a great shop and I hope to do some

of our Christmas shopping there.
Our daughter Alyse just loves to munch on
the grass with our little kitty Princess.

Hat and Scarf

Well winter is coming as we all know. Weather we like it our not. I am one of the ones that just wants it to stay fall. But I did manage to get a hat and scarf made for my daughter.



I made it for her in her favorite color, and she just loves it.
The morning after I finished it she saw it when she got up and I got the biggest hug and kiss for it.

I am working on my son's hat and scarf now so when they are done I will show you how cute that is a well.

just and update.

Hey everyone sorry we have been slacking again on blogging. But I (Erin) had surgery today so we have been dealing with that lately.

It wasn't anything big I just got my tubes tied today. So we have been going over the hole are we sure we don't want any more kids for the last month or so. And we thought it was for the best. 2 kids is enough we have a boy and a girl so you really can't have anything else.

So everything went fine today and I am in a little bit of pain. So if I talked in circles you all know why now. :)


We hope to put up some pictures of a show we did a few weeks back tomorrow I think.
