Candy Cottage Creativity

We enjoyed getting this adorable email with pictures from Sally Harrison, who won one of our candy cottages and decorated it for Halloween!

"We were so excited to win your candy cottage! We had so much fun decorating it!

Sally Harrison and kids
daughter, Hayden (8), and son, Hank (8)

p.s. Everything is edible except the pine cone in the "back yard" - Hayden thought we needed a tree!"

Great job, Sally!
Thank you from everyone at Fresh Ink

Charcoal Grey Ink :: On Trend

Charcoal grey ink has been the selection for many brides at Fresh Ink.  It provides a softer alternative to black for invitation printing, but still has a very classic and timeless feel.

Rewined, based in South Carolina, is one of our favorite new candle lines at Fresh Ink.  We fell in love with the concept of using recycled wine bottles for candles, but Adam and friends at Rewined really cemented the deal with not only a clever concept but delightful fragrances and packaging to complete the package.  We asked him a few questions to give our customers insight into this new line at Fresh Ink:

{FI} How did you get your start?

Learning about wine was a passion of mine in my 15yrs in the restaurant business.  Working 80 hrs a week wasn't.  I began working with the glass bottles I saw coming out of the restaurant in my spare time, and one night over a glass of wine the idea for candles just struck me.  The rest is history.

{FI}Fill in the blank: I _____ when I see a ____.

I cringe when I see a glass bottle thrown away.

{FI} I'm totally obsessed with _______.

I'm totally obsessed with traveling the world.

{FI} Why do you do what you do?

I love creating things, working with my hands, and doing things that involve all my senses.

{FI} When I'm not working, you'll most likely find me with:

my two 3 month old baby girls Ella & Zoey.

Stop by Fresh Ink this month and check out "Spiked Cider" - one of Rewined seasonal fragrances, available for a limited time only!
