Undiscovered Gold

Green Monster Candle
I got a late start this week on my search for the best new shops in the handmade universe. As you can imagine, it is hard to choose from the tons of new shops that are added every day on etsy. Fortunately for me, most of them are not as cute as StorytimeCandles.

Can you believe there is a story behind storytime? Missi Burgess, an avid soapmaker, was itching to find a super cool beeswax candle. Not finding anything to her liking, she created her own molds, filled them with 100% beeswax that had been made locally, and TADA! She created her own line of funky candles.
Pink Peace Sign

These candles are designed for everyday use but can easily be used for a birthday cake or other special occasion. As you might have expected, my favorite is the this Pink Peace Sign. It has 2 hemp wicks, one in each of the pointed fingers. I just love things with hands :P

Since her shop just opened this week, she is just starting to list her amazing little creations. I look forward to seeing what other adorable ideas she comes up with the make with wax.

If you like her work, be sure to follow Storytime Candles on Facebook.
