Please excuse the construction of my blog.  I have given up selling my Avon as I actually took up a hobby of making candles! My blog is changing from Avon to Soy Candles!  YAY!! As I was making the candles, each one became better and better.  People started asking me if I would make candles for them and the first thing you know???  The candles started selling!  :)  I love doing them.  They are 100% soy with lead free wicks.  The only paraffin wax that may be added, is a few small embellishments if it is decorated.  Example:  A lot of my customers like "blueberry cobbler" (it smells scrumptious) Depending on the scent,since my candles are made with no coloring dye, sometimes the little fruits really add to the candle, like little blueberries. Please take a look at my website so you can enjoy looking at some of the creations that have been created by me.  I take a lot of pride in what I do and each candle is made to order.  I hope you enjoy and I hope you will follow me as you did with my Avon.  Happy looking!  Website listed below:

"Hey, Back Off" Book Review

I am not a huge bookworm,but there are times when a title will catch my eye! I happen to know someone whose child is going through some bullying and as we all know, this can be very traumatic for a some. I happen to come across this book titled "Hey, Back Off, which was written by Jennie Withers, along with Phyliss Hendrickson. This book is based on research, personal experience and information from school authorities. As you read through the book, you will notice overviews for teen readers & one for parent readers. The book takes you through the many meanings of harassment & helps you understand. You learn about the law & supporting resources. Many teens today are harassed on a daily basis, whether it be hitting, punching, verbal teasing, in or outside of school, school bus, etc.
There is very good information in this book to help your child and yourself & how to look for signs. Keep and eye on your childs moods, behaviours, not wanting to go places, etc. Please take the time to read this book if you or someone you know has a child going through this. We have seen it where children have committed suicide because of this. These bullies need to be stopped! Jennifer was nice enough to send me this book to review and I have to say every parent or guardian should have this book. Jennifer is going to give one lucky follower of my blog this book. So just leave me a comment that you would like to win this book. A winner will be picked on 1-22-12. It is funny that I just read this book and just yesterday the following was posted on facebook:
Dear bullies, The boy you punched in the hall committed suicide a few minutes ago. That girl you called a slut in class is a virgin. The boy you called lame has to work every night to support his family. That girl you pushed down the other day is already being abused at home. You think you know them. Guess what, you don't. Leave them alone!!!!! Put yourself in their place!!!!
Re-post if you are against bullying. I bet 99% of you won't. Re-post this if you're the 1% with a heart ♥
Please try to post reviews on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com if it’s not too much trouble.  Get the word out!!  Photo property of Jennie Withers, used for demonstrative purposes only. No copyright infringement intended.
