The Candle Maker


My name is Diana, and I am the owner of WicketyWax Soy Candles. With this blog, I’d like for you to get to know the person behind the candles better, answer any questions you may have, and also give advice and suggestions about candles, fragrances, materials used, etc (I might even show you some of my own failed candle making attempts 🙂 ). So let’s get started…


I’m a mom of two wonderful, busy boys. I’m married to a great man. I am a full-time teacher at a university in Alabama. And last, I’m also an expat. I’m originally from the Netherlands (yes, I speak Dutch too), but moved to the USA in 2000. So far, I’ve lived in North Carolina, California, Illinois, and now Alabama. I guess we’ll see what the future brings.

My hobbies include reading, writing, horse back riding, and creating and making things from scratch. I’ve knitted teddy bears for my kids, and I like to bake stuff. I don’t have much time to do all the fun things I’d like to do, but in 2016, I had some time on my hands (because I didn’t have a job), and I decided to start making candles. It’s become a fulfilling hobby and job. I enjoy making each batch of candles and every candle gets lots of attention from me.

That’s me in a nutshell.

Stay tuned…my next blog will be about the benefits of using soy wax.
