Looking for candles!

Autumn is quickly approaching and it's my favorite time of year, especially for burning fall candles :) My latest client, Sherry, owner of "Charm City Candles" was super sweet and sent me a complimentary candle for designing her website (to be up soon!). I ordered her Vanilla scent and it's lovely! I will put her link to her website once it's up and running. I'm wondering if you folks could help me out with finding other soy candle sellers? Any thoughts? I would only buy handmade in America, and I'm happy to "plug" on my blog for any I buy and like! :)

Will be offline

Hi all! I am leaving for a much needed vacation on Thursday the 9th...I'll be gone for a week. I should have internet while I'm gone, but if I don't get back to you right away, that's why. If you have any pending orders, do not worry as I'm still working on each and every one of them...I have a very busy schedule, so if you don't hear back from me right away, it doesn't mean I have forgotten about you. Thanks much!

New business hours & waiting lists

Hi All! Hope you are all enjoying this spring weather we're having. Living in upstate NY I've been awaiting this for about 9 months! lol Anyways, I wanted to let you all know that I just changed my business hours. Business has really been crazy lately, and as much as I enjoy my job, I am having a hard time juggling my work life and my home & personal life. Which brings me to my next point, my waiting list. My wait is going to be about a month to 2 months to begin custom orders. I can't take in any more customs orders at this time until half of the ones I'm currently working on are complete. Please please please don't wait until the last minute if you are in need of custom work. Designing a custom webset from start to finish takes a lot of time. There are many designers out there that have a 6 month time frame on customs. I typically like to have my done within 6 business weeks, however please accept that it could possibly take longer!
With all that said, I hope you all understand my cut back on my hours and please factor that into your business schedule as well. I do check my email on a daily basis and if you are in need of urgent attention, please note that in your subject line so I know to open it right away. Otherwise, if you write me on a Sunday, I will get back to you on Wednesday. As always, if you have any question or concern, please email me! Thanks all so much, enjoy the rest of spring!!

Updates and Sales!

Hi folks! I'm running a few Spring sales that I'd like to tell you about!

First up, a buy 3 get one free template sale (website only please). I don't have a problem if you decide you want to take up the sale offer after you've already purchased a template recently. By recently, I mean within the past week or so. Please use the shopping cart I have on my site for the 2 or 3, and email me your free choice.
Blog-Sets~ 50% off .Your Blog-Set includes the backgrounds, the logo and the code and instructions for inserting it onto your blog. (This sale applies to any pre-design, custom one of a kinds not included.)

I've also been getting a few emails from people expressing interest in custom one of a kind designs, but can't afford it at this time..I can totally understand this, the economy is still pretty bad...Please keep in mind, that I only require half down for the deposit and the other half upon completion, customs usually take weeks to complete, so that gives you a good break between payments.
Starting May 1st, I'm going to begin template "punch cards"..Kinda like those coffee punch cards you get, only for templates! I know a lot of you are template junkies *lol* and it only seems fair to get rewarded with freebies every once in a while, dontcha think? :)
As always, feel free to email me anytime and stop by my site, looking forward to hearing from you all soon!! :)

Website back up!

Thank you all so much for your patience! I have some new templates up for sale on my website, along with some older ones...I still plan on adding more, but I wanted to least get up what I have ready for now..if you don't see anything you like yet, I love to do customs! I haven't advertised it on my site yet, but I will be running a buy 3 get one free sale, and that will be in effect as of now. It was just brought to my attention that my "Sheep & willow tree" template has lime green in it? I dont see it on either one of my computers, but if any of you guys see it too, can you please let me know? I'm pretty stumped about that. Looking forward to hearing from you all soon and I wish each and every one of you a wonderful Easter!

There's just not enough time in the day...

Hi folks...Well, I was aiming to have my site back up today, but it looks like I ran out of time again! The whole process of me stripping down and setting back up my site, is very time consuming...I wish I could afford an employee! I'm going through a lot of my older templates and putting a fresh new spin on them...This takes so much time...In addition to re-vamping all my old work, I'm trying to come up with as much new work as possible too..Meanwhile working on my current custom orders. Definitely *not* enough time in the day.
I finished my "seasonals" which mostly consist now of Spring and Americana ones...I'll worry about uploading the Valentines, Christmas and Halloween ones when it gets closer to that time...The next step is the "Everyday" ones...I'll probably need a few more days for this.
Thanks so much for your patience & understanding while I get things up and running again!! See you soon!

Welcome Spring! Blog-Sets for Sale!

Hello All! I'm back on the blog ('cuz ya know, everyone else is doin' it lol)
So heres a few updates!
Update numero uno~~ I recently finished up designing "Arts a Flutter" web magazine and had a ton of fun doing that..If you're not familiar, check it out ( , its filled with tons of really amazing artists and lots of really cool stuff for sale!

Update 2! I've been getting tons of emails over the past *year* (yeah I know, I'm slow) asking if I design blog templates. Up until now, the answer has always been no...Reason being, I just haven't had the time to sit down and learn it...But now I am! I have a few for sale here, what you're actually getting is the background, the logo and the instructions for setting it up (very easy)...I can turn any of my templates into a blog-set for you, so even if you have a pre-existing templates from me and want the matching blog-set, all you have to do it email me to see if I still have it! I'm selling them for $13.00 for a new one, and $10.00 if you want one made from your template (IF its recent and I still have your logo). I'm offering a "buy 3 get one free" special too for those of you who like to switch your templates out often :)...Back about seeing if I still have an existing template of yours; I am going to be going through all my old files on FRIDAY 4/10 and deleting all templates that are 6 months and older, so if you need a copy sent to you, or would like a matching blog-set from it, let me know before Friday, after that you will have to purchase a new one full price.

Update 3! I took a brief hiatus with my website. I needed to seriously update for Spring and finish up a bunch of pending orders before taking on new ones...So you can expect that to be up and running on Monday!

Update 4! I started listing on eBay again and I'll be continuing adding new templates there. Spring/Easter geared and a few "everyday" ones as well.
Heres the link:*by*eleasa_W0QQ_nkwZQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZQQ_mdoZ

I guess that's about it for now! I'll continue to keep updating often through here, and if you have any question, drop me an email or comment here!
Thanks, take care!
