November Candle Subscription: Gather for Warmth

November candle subscriptions shipped out this week and I'm so ready for this month. It's my favorite time of year and weather - chilly, overcast - you know, perfect candle burning weather. 

Late in October I hosted an Instagram giveaway for one November candle subscription. People either regrammed my photos or submitted their own of their favorite Handmade Habitat candle and the winner [picked at random] was one of my good friends, @mkconcentrate! Just look at this great picture of a vintage container rose candle and her little dog, Galaxy, who is also my God puppy / Rosie's best frienemy. 

November is a time that I usually like to engage in some reflection and gratitude. It was November of 2012 that I first left my day job to pursue my creative career full time. A lot can be said about whether I made the right decision or not- but the decision was made and here I am. 

Two years later, I couldn't be happier. I'm finally starting to gain confidence and feel settled, regardless of how much money is in my bank account at any given time. I'm really happy that I've gotten to share this little life adventure with all of you - who in your own big or little ways have influenced everything I've done over the years. 

So in the spirit of Thanksgiving and thankfulness and reflection, here is our November Monthly Candle Subscription: a cinnamon orange clove Gather candle, and a little set of warmth matches. May you feel warm and fuzzy inside this Thanksgiving, whether you're sharing it with family, old friends, or new ones. 

Get your own candle subscription in the shop and read more reflections about leaving my job and living a creative career right here on Handmade Habitat Living. & thanks for your support.

P.S. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all time, but more on that later this month.
