Wick & Sarcasm For Mississippi River Reader Retreat

One of the candle companies I've seen on Instagram and have wanted to work with is Wick & Sarcasm. I thought the Mississippi River Reader Retreat would be the perfect time to make a custom candle for the ladies who were staying at the AirBnB during the retreat.

I got in touch with Ashley, the owner, to work on the scent and label design. She was terrific to work with. I let her know my favorite scents and in turn, she put together 3 or 4 sample candles and sent them to me to decide on the one I wanted to go with. Let me just say, she did a great job and made my task all the more difficult.

Once I decided on the scent I wanted, white tea and ginger, she went about pouring it and then she asked me about the label color. I wanted a bright green. Ashley worked on the design and updated me with images and questions as she went along. It was SO nice to be part of the process, but I left most of it up to her since that's what she does for a living.

As soon as the label was finished, she sent me a photo of the candle jar with the label attached. I was so excited to see it in person! I couldn't wait to give them to the ladies at the house (and keep one for myself of course!). Isn't it adorable?! I ordered the 4oz glass jars. The candles are made out of natural soy.

And I have to say, one of the things I loved most about this process is that she paid attention to the details. She knew that I love books and gardening and implemented those pieces into the label without me even knowing! Also, do you see the butterfly in the left corner?! Seriously, I loved this candle so much.

I was thrilled to give the candles out in goody bags to the ladies and I hope they enjoy them as much as I do mine. I can't wait for my next order! Be on the lookout for what I'm doing for November!
