    If y’all don’t know - before you purchase a candle, smell the lid (NOT the candle) and that will be the strength of the smell of the candle while it burns. I believe it is called a “cold throw”. So, strong lid smell = strong “hot throw”, not a strong lid smell = bland candle when burning! Hope this helps :)

      I've been smelling candles like this for years because one person (don't remember who) told me one time that it was the best way to smell candles. I think they just said it gave a more accurate sense of what the candle smelled like (didn't mention the strength, but that makes sense!) but regardless, I use this any time I'm candles shopping and it works great!

    mia next time you use the clay if it cracks like that once dry: take some of the leftover clay and mix it with water to make kind of a paste and use that to fill in the cracks just make sure it isnt too liquidy or too thick and it should work perfectly once smoothed out! also using a wet sponge and misting clay with a spray bottle helps get things smoother as long as its not overly wet

    I'm so glad you got an ad for local, small business candles! I'm a big advocate for scented products by small businesses because on the whole they use much less chemicals and they hold so much more passion in both concepts and execution! Supporting them helps both body and soul :)
    I've found a lot of local candles on both Instagram and Etsy, and have gotten into perfumes as well. Once I took the leap to independent makers I quickly realized I couldn't go back to the mass market stuff, you can really smell the difference!
    Edit: I like the candle containers too, they look like they can be recycled easily and safely!

      They work on pimples that are oozy and “open”, but don’t do much for those deep ones (other than protect it from you touching your skin). Hydrocolloid material absorbs liquids - ie pimple ooze - helping it to stay dry and heal quickly. Placed over a closed pimple, there’s nothing it can really do to help it.

      @Urmom Finally got it 2 days ago. I've charged it but haven't done the firmware update yet. The feeder seems nice though the seed hopper is small so I think it will have to be refilled a lot. The box it came in was high quality. I think they have people who understand how to manufacture a product and people who understand the physical shipping requirements and can design super boxes. Their logistics and planning people seem subpar.

      An unfinished kickstarter company that isn’t capable of producing shouldn’t be taking orders or claiming delivery dates they are incapable of providing. If they haven’t even BEGUN producing why are they selling an unmade product?? I’m not giving them the benefit of the doubt, kickstarter doesn’t always mean innocent college students starting a business. They know they’re taking money and giving delivery dates when they haven’t even begun making the product. It’s a scam either way

      @Cheryl-Lynn Mehring The BBB is kind of a joke. Some companies will work with them but they're not required to respond to anything the BBB sends them and it's only a PR move if they do. People know what they're getting into when they buy a kickstarter item. With material acquisition issues and supply chain glitches, it's not surprising that they're not shipping out as soon as they projected.

      There’s a word for that smell, it’s “petrochor”. It’s a real word and for some info: “Humans aren't the only ones to appreciate the earthy aroma after an April rain shower. That smell-known as petrichor-stems from microscopic streptomycete bacteria in the soil that produce a compound called geosmin, The Times reports.”.

      Same for me as well. When I was a kid I remember that after a rainstorm there would be earthworms all over the driveway and road. After that I always associated the smell of rain to smell like worms. Anybody that I would bring this up to would look at me like I was crazy. The only time that I think rain smells good and not like worms is right before it rains like when the storm is just starting to blow in, but after everything is wet it smells like worms to me😂 Even though I've never picked up and sniffed a worm before. I also was eating Ramen noodles as a ki'd after a rainstorm and I walked outside bowl in hand to see all the earthworms crawling about. I looked down at my noodles and that was it, I had to toss them in the trash. To this day as a 38 yr old adult I cannot eat Ramen because after the first few bites I think of worms and gross myself out. I've never been able to get passed it. It's weird how our child brains associate different things to other things and it stays with us forever. It's also crazy how some of us have the same weird associations like rain smelling like worms😂

With the added issues brought by the pandemic, it's been difficult to make friends. Of the four women friends I've met, two have died, and two turned out to be, um, well, bat crap crazy. I have a couple of guy friends that I've made, but it's the female friendships that have been difficult to find. I've not experienced this issue before, I've got quite a few women friends back home, but none here. Sorry, your simple remark garnered you a short story of me bitching, lol.

    Rubber tree's are very resilient from my experience as long as you take care of them well, they also get big and love to take over an entire space if you let them (if you don't trim them at all). They are fun tree's and I love them. Also, a side note don't let dogs eat them, it's definitely bad for them.

    I’ve been getting ads from one of those companies that build you a house from scratch recently. Probably because I recently moved so my Google searches were all about moving. When Mia said no price limit her getting an ad for a house or something else stupidly expensive was all I could think about 😂

    Just some advice on the plants - they generally do better if you keep them in plastic pots and don't plant them directly into the decorative pot! Especially the crassula (or any plant that doesn't require a lot of water) really doesn't like to have moisture sitting at the bottom of the pot and keeping them in the plastic pots helps the water drain better. Repotting them again into plastic pots and putting those in the decorative ones might be something to consider if you want to help them stay as healthy as they are now :)

    I would love that sculpting kit. Definitely putting on my wishlist. I usually ignore Instagram ads cuz I can't afford anything but that's cool and comes with a lot of clay. Worth the price of it.
    Second fave is the candles. I don't have a lot of room for them but I love the smell. I can't burn them because of my cats but I can just sniff them whenever

    You can use water to smooth clay out while it`s wet and send paper when it`s completely dry. Clay loves a little bit of water. Anyway, looks nice.

      Hi! Amateur sculpteur here. There's many reasons why he bowl cracked and was uneven. When using clay it is better to not have many little pieces pressed together because it creates the possibility of missing some areas and have air in between layers.
      You should also do cross hashes on both side of the pieces you want to stick and add slip (slip is basically watered down clay, everyone has a different preferance in consistency, but I would go around yogurt consistence.)by doing that you are sealing the pieces of clay. And it would still be considered a weak point.
      You indeed need water while working clay because it dries pretty fast and having water also helps to smooth out the surface as mentioned above. Even if you use slip or add water you can fire them, but we need to keep in mind that weak points will become very obvious and the size and colour of the clay will change too it usually shrinks as the water in the clay evaporates.

    I’m glad you enjoyed all of the items! You really never know until you try them. As for the candles, my roommate purchased Bath & Body Works’ wallflower. I don’t like them and they build up a layer of something after a while. Turns out, the chemicals are toxic to animals and people!! In fact, quite a few similar items are! I found Aera Aromatherapy and it is amazing. Highly recommend!

    Check the reviews for the bird feeder. I love the plants, they are doing so well. The sculpture kit was well made. Your cup could've gone twice the height easily. See if the site has other color paints and compare them to craft acrylics. There may be other ingredients that make them better suited to pottery. I've seen special "stone" paints. How are you doing with the candles?
