Here is what Dawn and Joyce have to say about their favorite words: May you be Encouraged!
Dawn from Oregon, shared her favorite word: HOPE
A little Encouragement from Dawn:
- “If we do not have “Hope” that God will get us through this, what do we have left?”
- “God gave us “Hope” when His son died for Us“
- & “we have to believe that He is still telling us to have ‘Hope’ “
Joyce from Oregon, shared her favorite word: FAITHFUL
A little Encouragement from Joyce:
- He is always faithful to do as He has said He would do!
- I have many personal experiences of His faithfulness which just lead me to have more and more faith in Him.
- One of my mantras, especially in today’s environment is Deuteronomy 31:6 ‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them (or it), for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you’
OH! …Ladies, one more thing…at the bottom of this email, I have a little link for you to listen to some little words encouraging you to “Let your Little Light Shine”. I am so excited to share my new podcasts with you! And as always there are print-ables to go with each podcast!!! Click Here
Wrapping up the Harvest & The Chickens are out!
I am just about done canning and storing our harvest for the season. I pressure canned our carrots from our garden last week and thought, OK, I am done for a bit. I am planning on making jam with our berries, raspberries, huckleberries, strawberries, and Saskatoon berries, during the winter months. But for now, they are all bagged and sitting in our freezer safe and sound.
Well, while I was walking our dog with my son I ran into a neighbor and he offered some apples from his trees and some Huckleberries he picked this year. I could not refuse the offer. My husband once said, You cannot turn down free food. So after my show next week I will be making one last batch of applesauce. Praise the Lord! He provides.
So, now that I have harvested my garden, I put the chicken run together that leads them into our garden. Our chickens are now a bunch of happy ladies. Our garden is located in the front of our house, and so whenever I am outside I get to see the ladies and hear them cackle all over the place. Since we have been living off grid on our property, we have had chickens and I just love having the ladies. They do not require allot of care and you get a present from them each day.
Harvest Moon Bazaar – Come and See Us!
It is that time of year again. Fall is here, Thanksgiving is just around the corner and the Harvest Moon Bazaar is about to begin.
If you are in the Boring, Oregon area, we would love to see you at our booth. My son, Mom and Dad will be helping me with my show this year. If you mention seeing this post/postcard, you can receive $2.00 off one of our Pauper’s Candles.
The Harvest Moon Bazaar is one of my most favorite shows to do. The show location is great, the vendors are of high quality, and the women hosting the show are wonderful. If you enjoy handmade and vintage products, you will love this bazaar.
We all hope to see you there!

Pauper’s Little Work Space
I was needing a little space in my house where I could use my laptop, process orders, do bills and store my “office materials” for Pauper’s Candles. I decided to use the closet space in our guest bedroom. I totally love the way the space came together.
My Pauper’s Work Space came together great and I wrote this post while sitting at my little desk. I have also added curtains, so when quests come over I can close the curtains and they do not have to see into my work space. This was a fun project. Go Re-Purposing! Go Old Wood! Go Local Dump!
Farmers Market at Sandpoint is set for May 7th
Pauper’s Candles will be at our local Farmers Market starting May 7th this year. We are looking forward to another great year at the market. We will be there with our Soy Candles and Air Fresheners as well as having some potted Aloe Vera.
Be sure to come by our booth. We are located on the street near the food court.
We have added some terrific scents to our candle line and we know you will enjoy them all. I am totally enjoying Sweet Orange Chili Pepper. I have been burning it in our bathroom and the scent throw is wonderful. I also love the Pomegranate candle we are making this year. It is a scent that I remember from my youth and the memories around this scent make this candle even better. Isn’t it amazing how scents trigger memories, feelings, and situations we have had? I love that about candles.
Hope the see you at the Farmer’s Market!
OSU Mom’s and Family Weekend 2016…
Pauper’s Candle Company is going to be at Oregon State University Mom’s and Family Weekend Art Festival. You can see more information about this event on their Facebook page. We will be there on April 3oth and the festival is from 10am – 5pm located near the Memorial Union building on the brick mall. We will be in booth 14. We would love to see you there.
This is our first show of the year and we will be debuting five new candle scents. They are Sweet Orange Chili Pepper, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pomegranate, Salty Sea Air, and Toasted Marshmallow. Come and stop by our booth and smell the new candles. I totally love the Sweet Orange Chili Pepper. I have always loved orange fragrance and this candle scent throws great and yet is not too heavy.
My son is making the trip with me this year. He is looking forward to seeing Grandma and Grandpa, as we will be staying with them. He is also a great helper setting up our booth. It is always fun to see my parents and my mom will be helping me run my booth as she has been for many years now and my Dad always assists with unloading and loading my supplies for this show. I love my folks. They have always been so supportive.
Thank you to OSU for putting on a great show. We are looking forward to another great time at the festival.
