Flickin’ Lit Candle Co. is a very interesting and creative candle operation made 100% by Chelsea herself. She creates candles and wax melts into tiny works of art. As someone who has used both the wax melts and candles I can vouch that they small beyond amazing. I can melt one piece of the wax and they last all day long throughout my entire home.
She not only makes quality products, she has managed to market them creatively by slapping classic and hilarious names on to her products. Some of the scents include: Half-Baked, Best F’in Apple, PSL & Uggs, Queen Basic, Fresh AF, and Whorechata….to name a few. She also has a “Hella Basic Package” for Fall. All of these include FREE SHIPPING!! Which is basically a dream come true.

Kicking off Small Business Saturday for Blogtober with Crafted By Camargo!
Omar Camargo is a local artist and business owner in Fresno, California.
“I’m fairly new to the entire online shop, and business aspect of things, definitely have learned a lot along the way. My shop has only been open for about 6 months. And it originally opened as a jewelry shop, but I really love creating all sorts of things, so it slowly started branching to other things, such as party decor, custom mugs & t- shirt’s, slowly want to roll out cards for several occasions since I love to water color as well. I really love custom orders, so I strongly encourage them! Everything you see is made by me, I work on everything myself. I’m very particular about how I like things to look, and be done, even down to the packaging. I think cohesion and presentation of a product is key, so I really try to deliver that. I’m excited to have my first pop up shop in early December! My ultimate goal would be too create several pop up shops throughout the Central Valley, collaborate with other local business owners, and maybe someday have a small store front of my own. “
Omar is a very hardworking and talented young entrepreneur and student here in our community and I want you to check out his shop and see his work! #SupportYourLocalArtists!
Here are some places you can see his work and shop:
I had a fantastic birthday and took some very cool photos! I also made an obnoxiously long photo journal post about it (above) and I hope you enjoy reading all about it and looking at my Disneyland photos.
So many things are coming to this blog in October so don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE!
So at the end of August I went to 59 Days of Code here in Fresno to check it out and see what the tech community was up to. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that we had a lot of Agriculture related tech out at the event and I was fortunate enough to meet and speak to some of these people and learn about their projects and apps.
As you know this blog is very new and I am still learning all the cool, fun ways to edit videos…..which also means I am still NOT great at it and rely on some very basic editing tools via my iPhone. I plan to study up on some programs and with time I hope my Vlogs will get better! If you have any comments, tips, advice or constructive criticism I’d be happy to hear it!
