Back to School = FUNDRAISING




It's almost that time again, Back to School! Which, my little one is quite ready to start 2nd grade in her brand new school.




Back to School also means fundraisers! I don't know about you, but I'm quite tired of the $20 coupon book, that I seem to forget to take with me. Or, when I do remember to take it only to find out the coupon isn't good at that particular location. And Candy Bars, don't even get me started. When my son was younger and on the basketball team I personally ended up buying a case because he shared and ate them all with his buddies - oh good times :)




I have a profitable solution though! You need a Gold Canyon Candle Fundraiser. Easy to sell with our scratch and sniff folders. And most Mom's I know - LOVE CANDLES.




And now through September 27th earn an additional 2%! For the Organization - the average fundraiser order is $3,000 which means, they can earn $1,260.


You'd have to sell 14 Candy Bars to come close to the profit of selling 1 Gold Canyon Candle!


For more information on how we can help your organization please contact me at robin.whaley@gmail.com

Just How Fragrant are Gold Canyon Candles??



I hear this question A LOT.....And I can honestly say they are the MOST fragrant scents I have ever experienced. Of course, the different scents all vary - some are more subtle than others. But will the scent throw fill up a room? Are they better than Yankee Candles? What about Home Interior's Candles? Ummm, Most definitely!!

Today I am burning a 26 ounce Heritage Candle - in "Birthday Cake" - one of my most favorite Gold Canyon scents. It's beyond vanilla, more tantalizing than sugar cookie - and just makes me feel good :) without any guilt!

Our home is about 2200 square feet. And, I have strategically placed my candle near my PC in my dining room. Of course, like most Mom's - I'm multi-tasking this morning, running from room to room tidying up and doing laundry. Our laundry room is the room furthest away from my dining room, and guess what? I can smell that delicious fragrance from there! I was actually surprised for a moment or two.

So to all the skeptics out there, if nothing else try this fragrance! You will not be disappointed - I guarantee it.

Scent Recipe of the Day! Cherry Pie A La Mode


Scent Blending Recipes are carefully selected recipes of individual candles that when burning together, create their own unique, blended scent experience. To maximize your fragrant experience, use the exact sizes and quantities noted in each recipe – a slight alteration can be like adding salt when you needed sugar.




Enjoy! And if you want to recreate it, but don't have all the fragrances yet, you can order on my website or by contacting me directly: http://www.mygc.com/wickandtired or email robin.whaley@gmail.com



FIRST: Arrange the candles on a heat-safe surface with the largest in the middle and smaller candles interspersed throughout. For votive and tealight candles, use a holder to protect the surface.



SECOND: Place each candle approximately two inches apart in your arrangement.



THIRD: Light each candle and let the aromas mingle for at least 30 minutes to create your new fragrance experience.




Cherry Pie A La mode - Mmmmmm, what's that baking in the oven? The scent of bing cherries, in a homemade buttery pie crust. Not yet complete though.....Oh yes, there's that big scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream Melting ever so slowly on top.



15 ounce Fem Fabulous "BADA BING CHERRY PIE"


8 ounce Bella or Heritage Candle in "BIRTHDAY CAKE"




Sure to make every one think you are a master baker!

It's HIP to be Green - Get your Blue!
