Feature Friday: Cest Soy Candles

Today I'm Featuring the shop of Cassandra called Cest Soy!


She makes soy candles , she sent me the one below the freshly cut grass scent which smelled really good. I love soy candles they seem to keep their scent alot better and burn longer .




She also has a long list of other scents to choose from :


Baby Powder, Birthday Cake, Blueberry Burst, Cherry Slush, Christmas Past, Cinnamon Red Hots, Creamsickle, Cucumber, Firewood, Fresh Cut Grass, Fresh Cut Roses, Fruit Loops, Honeysuckle, Hot Chocolate, Island Mango, Key Lime Pie, Lavender Vanilla, Lemon Pound Cake, Mixed Berries, Ocean, Orange Chiffon, Pink Sugar Cookie, Roasted Coffee, Rootbeer, Unscented, Vanilla Butter Fudge, Watermelon


The candles are priced great to ,to many people over charge for candles and they aren't even that great. You can stop by and visit her shop!

Here is an interview i did with her check it out..

1. Tell us about yourself:I am a stay at home mom and wife. We have 3 dogs that are just as much my kids as my children. I've been creating candles for a few years now and after a little convincing from my family I decided to sell them on Etsy. I love the creativeness behind making different scents and styles of candles.

2. What can we find in your etsy shop?:My Etsy shop shows votives, tealights and even a star stacked tealight that I created. I also make pillars, tarts, and floaters which will soon be showing in the store. I always accept requests! My newest creative item is the personalized set of tealights. Whatever message you'd like to say, I'll create it with the tealights. Please check it out, I'm very proud of them :)
3. How did you get started making candles?: I've always browsed the internet in my spare time to see what new things I can learn and I just decided one day that making a candle was something I wanted to try. it seemed very difficult and when I created my first candle I was very excited.

4.Do you have any other hobbies?:I love to read, play with my children and pets, and I love swimming (only in the warm weather though). If I have some time to myself I enjoy catching up watching General Hospital. I've been watching it forever.

5. What do you do for a day job?:Right now, my day job is taking care of my kids, the dogs, and the home and also making soy candles. That really fills my days and nights.
6. If you could have dinner with any 3 people living or dead who would it be and why?Honestly, if I could have dinner with any 3 people they would have to be my kids and my husband. We always enjoy spending time together.

Feature Friday :Sweeter Than Sweets

Today were featuring Sweeter than Sweets on etsy , Tricia has this fantastic shop on etsy selling cute headband and hair pins to cute stuff for baby to! So there is something for mommy and baby. I got this fantastic teal headband from her shop i love anything with bows! I love this headband I'm going to wear it out this weekend for my day trip on Saturday.

Go check out her shop and take a look at all her fantastic items in her shop she has some great hair accessories and cute baby stuff for the little ones!

Now we have an interview with Tricia take a peak!

1. Tell us a little about yourself? I have been married for 9 ½ years to an amazing man and we have a beautiful and talkative 2-year-old daughter together. I am so blessed to be able to stay home with her full time. She was born 3 weeks after I got my Master’s degree in Psychology, so one day I’ll go back to school to finish up my education and eventually work as a School Psychologist. We call California “home” though we currently live in North Carolina. We like it here, too. =)


2. How did you get into making and selling on “etsy? As a mom of an infant, I needed to have one tangible thing to show for my day! I started creating things when I was in 13 years old and to this day, I love to find new ways to express myself creatively. My finished products always reflect a part of me. I opened SweeterThanSweets last summer after spending $7 on one tiny hair clip for my daughter! Of course, it was adorable, but I realized the need for adorable AND affordable hair clips, so I began to make them myself.


3. Is this your full time or part time job? Being a mom is my full time job and my paychecks come in the form of hugs and kisses! SweeterThanSweets is my part time job that I get to do during my daughter’s naps and after her bedtime. I absolutely love making something that someone else falls in love with, too!


4. Do you have any hobbies or any other favorite activities? My favorite things to do other than making things for my shop are my other creative outlets: cooking, baking, photography and traveling. I love creating yummy things to eat, building beautiful pictures, and making new memories with my family!


5. Where did you come up with the name for your shop? I have a sweet tooth! I’ve called my husband My Sweets since we started dating 12 years ago so the name evolved from there. I call my daughter Little Sweets on my blog but not in real life. =)


6. If you could have dinner with any 3 people living or dead who would it be and why? I’m not going to say Jesus, because one day I will get to have dinner with Him! The 3 would be my husband (because he is my favorite person in the world), my Grandpa H. (because he never got to meet my husband) and one of my ancestors from the 1700s. I would love to find out what life was like in the 1700s and it would be so interesting to hear more about where my family has come from! What a great dinner party that would be! 7 April 2011 4:01pm EDT
