I have added a new soy product to the soy candles for charity range. Soy tealights.
Comes in 2 small sizes (small and large) and unscented and scented. The wicks are all-cotton, with no wires or zinc. Small tealights will also become available in clear polycarbonate tealight cups soon .
SOY...what are you waiting for ! Start burning those environmentally-friendly tealights......and if you have any questions, do write anytime!
Someone told me once that you tend to remember things you were supposed to do when you are in bed and I think this is really right. The whole morning at work yesterday I was thinking that the first thing I was going to do when I get home was look for a small box containing candle supplies which I have collected when I was still making/selling soy candles. Was not sure whether the box was in the garage or in the kitchen pantry. You see, whenever I ordered supplies from a US candle wholesaler before, I would always get a free candy thermometer. For some reason yesterday morning I remembered about it and knew I had about 6 or 7 collected. Also, when I visited this wholesaler in the US (I visited a friend in Pennsylvania and on our way to an Amish town I convinced her to stop by the candle wholesaler) it so happened that they were having a sale on tin moulds. The owner said that if I buy 100 moulds I will get 200 (2 for the price of 1) which I did. I sold a few of the tin moulds when I got back.
I was about to go to sleep when I remembered that I needed to look for that box. It was almost midnight (well past midnight actually since it was 12:02am on my alarm clock) and finally found the box after half-an-hour and my memory is really very good (LOL!) because these are the contents of the box - 8 candy thermometers and 142 tin moulds.
A jackpot box which I am selling in ebay (in fact I have already posted the tin moulds right after I found it very early this morning) and will be posting the candy thermometers later today as I still need to think of a description. Proceeds from the sale of these candle supplies will be used to send a parcel to Miwani, Kenya. I think this is the reason why I had to find the box. I needed the funds for the parcel.
Here are the items as listed in ebay under my personal account leisurestuff.

As of tonight, I have 735 dresses on hand and 462 of these dresses are below size 4
(between the sizes of 0 to 3). I am having a difficult time distributing these
dresses as the feedback I am getting is they need bigger sizes. With the cost of
sending parcels overseas going up again, I dont want to send these dresses only
to find out that no one is wearing them. This is a difficult decision to make
especially for those who have been making a lot of these sizes (but for almost 6 months now I have been posting about sizes that are needed) but as of tonight and until such time that I am able to clear these 462 dresses, I will not be accepting dresses below size 4. I cannot afford to rent a small warehouse to safekeep dresses that are slow moving. I hardly have a space left in the room that I am using in my house so please if you want to help please make bigger sizes.
I want to focus my expenses on the sending of dresses for distribution rather than paying for a space to safekeep dresses that cannot be distributed. This restriction will be lifted as soon as I have cleared these dress sizes for distribution. Thank you.

Sewing for Charity in Sydney
I found this Dress A Girl Around the World campaign while browsing the internet and started to make dresses. Decided to create and establish it here to see if it would be accepted as a community work sometime in Mar 2011. From then on I have been managing the Dress A Girl Around the World campaign here in Australia. It is self-funded and my way of making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged kiddies around the world. I volunteer whatever time I can spare including weekends. I made all the items on this e-Shop to sell (except donated items where identified) to help me keep up with the cost of sending dresses overseas. Please browse over the products I made and if there is anything you like, please buy them. It is going to a very worthy cause. Thank you.
