Country Keepsakes - New Creations

Are you hungry? If you're not, you soon will be after looking at Becky's new creations! Oh my....I want some of that pineapple upside down cake! These candles look good enough to eat and they will make your home smell as if you've been baking all day.

Mother's Day is fast approaching - May 9th. If you go on over to Country Keepsakes and order maybe she can get it to you in time. You will have to ask because I'm not sure of her turn-around time.

Hope you've enjoyed looking at the newest creations from Country Keepsakes. You may visit the store at http://cntrykeepsakes.comor for wholesale inquiries please visit CK Wholesale at You may want to visit her blogs and you may find the links at Country Keepsakes. Becky has lots to offer in her store as well as on her blogs. I thoroughly enjoy reading them.

I asked Becky for a few words of wisdom for anyone thinking of starting a business. I believe she is right on target.

My words of wisdom (by Becky) - If you are passionate about your business you will succeed. Always do something to put your business out there, whether it is 10 minutes or many hours. Building a business takes time and effort and just because you are self-employed doesn't mean you will have a lot of time on your hands. Being self-employed is usually harder than being employed as you have to have self discipline. There are many free advertising opportunities out there, but places that offer to send your samples out help you get your product out to many people for only the "cost" of what your samples cost you to make and postage...and will increase your chances of being noticed by a larger audience-people like to touch, feel, and smell (in my case) what you have to offer. This gives them a chance to do so, and not just a banner ad on a site-although that is helpful also.

Remember the pictures above are wax creations from Country Keepsakes....not real food. I know it is hard to believe as they look so real. They will look & smell great sitting around, but I bet they will fill the room with the most wonderul aroma while burning.

Those are so real looking! I'm very hungry after staring at them & then realizing those were wicks so they can't be food! :)

She sent in some cookie tarts, cinnamon bun tarts and candy tarts to be included in the sample boxes that look so real. If you set them out unwrapped someone would probably try to eat them. They smell good, too. I bet they will really smell good burning.
