Hurray for Spring Fragrances

I am very ready for spring.  It is Spring, right? I thought so..was confused because this morning I woke up to SNOW on the ground.  Talk about crazy.  The sun came out pretty quickly though, and the dreaded snow was melted in the blink of an eye.  Here in the Pacific NW we see mostly rain..and more rain this time of year, this sun/snow/sleet/rain is making me nuts.

To celebrate Spring we are introducing SIX brand NEW Fragrances in our Soy Candles.

Raspberry Sangria: (My Spring Favorite)
fragrance rating: *** Strong
 Made just like your favorite sangria - We start with a pile of juicy red raspberries, add some cherries and grapefruit, lots of sweet red wine poured on top, and a hint of orange as a garnish!
so yummy

Lemon Chiffon:  ** (medium-strong)
Smooth and creamy with the perfect amount of lemon, crumbly crust and warm vanilla, a baker's dream come true.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including Lemon and Clove.

Green Tea & Lemongrass: * (a nice light fresh fragrance)
This bright and natural smelling citrus begins with a top note of orange Valencia, bergamot tea and plum wine. The heart combines jasmine, violet, lavender and orange flowers. The dry down is a clean citrus musk.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including Jasmine.


White Lily & Amber: ** (medium)
A soft background of white amber and musk provide a comfortable backdrop for crisp top notes of dewy cyclamen and smooth mimosa with middle notes of white lily.

Botanical Orchard: ** (medium-strong)
Succulent, tender and overflowing with the luscious orchard aroma of apple and pear delicately balanced with the freshness of lily, pear blossoms, osmanthus and sweet orchard nectar.

Earthly: ** (medium)
Rich cedar, sandalwood, and amber with light notes of evergreen and fresh cut grass.

All six of our new fragrances have gone through our extremely rigorous testing process.  Out of dozens of spring inspired fragrances, only these six were good enough to meet our high standards.  All of us here at GLC and our fantastic family of testers have given each of these new fragrances two thumbs up!  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do...check out our events page to see where you can find us next so you can sniff them yourself!

We are also pretty excited to introduce a new product this spring: GLC Fragrance Spray- Air and linen freshener. 

Also we have fantastic new packaging for Soy wax melts!

And make sure you check our events page..we are applying for lots of summer shows and will be updating it as approvals come in! We hope to see you on the road this spring/summer!
Have a Fantastic Day!

A Party Fit for a Princess

Have you checked out Pinterest yet?  I have and let me tell you..there are some amazing ideas for creating just about anything!  For my nieces 4th birthday party my amazing sister put together a party fit for the princess she is.

Now first and foremost I must say this:  The creative juices and elbow grease that went into planning and creating the projects shown go entirely to my sister, Angi.  She spent hours finding ideas on pinterest (although most of the time I say...I'm going to check pinterest quick and find myself still surfing hours later) plus she spent countless more hours making every single aspect that went into this party; now my assistance came much later...during the actual fun parts.  Second I must say sorry for the long post. I wanted to share with everyone the fun I had, plus as most of you know I love taking pictures..and may have went a bit overboard on that aspect.

Chocolate Cups

These chocolate cups were the funnest part of the party.  You really had to wait to get the melted chocolate to just the right temperature or the balloon would burst spraying everything in a close vicinity with chocolate.  As you can see from the picture if you look close...there are a few pieces of burst balloon down there!  Once the chocolate is fully hardened you pop the balloon and pull the pieces out.  Then the chocolate is the bowl for the ice cream! It was fantastic..nothing says fun like eating the bowl too!!! 


Pretty Pink Princess Cupcakes

Adorable cupcakes with bright pink frosting and adorable crown cupcake wraps.  The cupcake wraps were cut out using a Cricut machine.  The cupcake frog pics where cut out using the same cartridge with the Cricut.

Cupcake Stands and Princess Hats


With just a few items from you local craft show, and some white paint you can create an adorable little cupcake stands like these.

Princess hats inspired by Tangled, with their long flowing ribbons and embellished with pretty princess crowns.  All paper embellishments are cut using the Cricut.

Oreo Pops

Oreo pops! What a fantastic creation.  Double stuffed oreos on a stick (which would have been great all alone) dip them in white chocolate and they are a doubly good sweet treat! Inspired by this pin:

Princess tutu's for the special little princesses, handmade and simply adorable.  We had to cut one down for the littlest princess though. 

The four little special princesses got their very own table and all of their goodies to wear for the party.  The faces on those little girls was priceless. 

As I said before a few of these projects were inspired by posts on if you haven't checked it out you should! 
A HUGE thank you to my amazing sister for letting me share with you her creative ideas.  She looked at me like I was crazy when I told her I wanted to blog about her party!

As always have a great day!
