What's Bubbys Grubbys Been Up To??

Its been a very busy 2008 for me here at Bubbys Grubbys!!

I have alot of new stores that I supply, I started this blog, getting an turning in applications for upcoming craft shows, trying to add my site to more relivent sites to get higher up in ranking, trying to figure out what my new item for 2008 will be and I have been filling orders just about on a daily basis!

I am still adding items to my Over Stock Sale. As some items fall off, I am adding others just about everyday! They are great new, great quality items, not 2nds or what I like to call "duds"!

I have been getting lots of requests to hold somekind of class to show the basics of candle making. This is something that sounds like a great idea to me. Problem is, where would I hold such a thing? How do you advertise and what would the cost be? So, this is something else on my "To Do List".

So, as you can see, I have a lot on my plate!! If you ever have any questions, suggestions or ideas that I can help with, please email me!

I would love to hear all of your comments!!

Troubleshooting Tips for Candle Burning

Ever lite your candle and just have it tunnel down threw the middle, never melting the sides of your jar?
Ever have a candle not stay lit no matter what you do to correct the problem??
Lots of smoking of your candle??

Tunneling of your candle.

Tunneling will result in any container candle if the candle is not burned long enough to create a wax pool across the entire surface of the candle. Our candles create this wax pool rather quickly so this is rarely a concern. Also, turn the candle periodically for even burning. This tunneling can also be caused by the wicks not staying lit.
The first time you light a pillar candle, burn it one hour for every inch of its diameter. This will allow the pool of wax to extend to the outside rim and prevent your candle from forming a "canyon" or "tunnel" in its center. Burning your candle this way will also set its memory. Each time you re-light the candle it will "remember" to burn out to the rim. Therefore no tunneling.

Wicks wont stay lit.

The wicks can be too short or there is too much draft in the room. I recommend not burning a candle directly under a ceiling fan or air conditioner vent. And never place your candle in a window. This will also help your candle last longer and burn safely.

If the wicks are accidentally trimmed too short, dig out a small amount of wax around each wick, then relight.

Smoking of your candle.

If your candle is smoking despite trimming the wick and checking for debris in the melt pool, extinguish the candle immediately. Trim the wick again a little more and allow to cool before relighting. The smoking will stop. With a quality candle, you shouldn't have problems with smoking, but it is worth remembering that scented candles will smoke more than unscented candles.

Candles need to breathe. If you burn a candle in a small room, it is likely to smoke. Please consider the size of your room when you display your new candles.

General Tips:

Never leave a burning candle unattended!
Keep out of the reach of children and pets
To prevent smoking, trim wick to ¼ inch prior to each use and keep trimmed.
If candle smokes, extinguish, trim wick & re-light
Keep debris out of the melt pool
To prevent fading, keep out of direct sunlight.
Extinguish by dipping wick into melted wax then reposition. This will help eliminate smoking.
If candle burns unevenly due to a draft, carefully push the wick to the higher side.. If this causes dripping, extinguish, cool and relight. Repeat a few times and the candle will repair itself.
