Welcome to Covington Creek Candle Company! I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit. I'm committed to creating a stable lifestyle by self sufficiency. Prices are going to keep going up. Food recalls are increasing. I don't know about you but I like to know how my food was grown and that I'm the one that canned it. I want to help everyone become more self sufficient whether you live in a apartment, the burbs, a acre or two or more. Of course we can't do everything but I think you will be amazed at how much control you can have.

My home business now includes quilted items and rustic home crafts in addition to creating the best and healthiest cold process soap, 100% pure soy candles, bees wax candles and natural/organic salves and lip balm as possible. Many say I have the best Fort Wayne handcrafted soap, salves and candles. I still haven't found the right place to open a brick and mortar store so www.covingtoncreekcandles.com will have the cold process soap rotating. But email me if there is a special item you are looking for and I will do my best to create it. I am all about customer satisfaction. I am continuing to look for a few acres to grow my own ingredients and move the shop part out of my home and into a separate building.

I am trying to help make this a greener and healthier place to live. We can do this thru more self sufficiency and preparedness. I would love for you to come along on my journey because that is what life is - a journey. If there is a subject you would like more information on let me know at covingtoncreekcandles@comcast.net

Craft Idea for Winter

Pinterest is an awesome site that you can find almost any idea. You do have to be invitited but all you have to do is request one. When you find a great idea, craft project, recipe, jewlry or really any thing you create a board and "pin it" It is much like twitter or facebook in that you have followers but anyone can see your board at anytime and repin it to theirs - this really spreads it around fast. I found this neat idea (and with the cooler weather it has got me to thinking of how to decorate for the winter)of filling balloons with water and adding food coloring then freezing it. You can either let the ballon stay intact or tear the balloon off and have a neat crystalized decoration for your yard. This might even be pretty cool in a punch bowl since you use food coloring with it. Here is the site to check it out. http://pinterest.com/pin/104286547592184799/ www.covingtoncreekcandles.com
