Candle Making

it's friday

I had been gone, doing some sewing, laughing, eating, and just enjoying life.  I went on a quilt re-treat and had an awesome time.

The girls are coming this weekend and we are going dress shopping.  Did I tell you we have a wedding next June?  Ben and Erin are getting married.  Erin's our daughter that we went to visit in Spokane Washington.

I'm off to do some sewing and finish getting the house ready for the girls.

You all have a wonderful weekend.

 


first attempt at candle making

I've been reading a blog Chickens in the Road for years and have been reading her posts on candle making and finally I got up enough courage to try it myself.  I also saw on SouleMama's blog where she made her candles in tea cups, and after reading that post I knew I had to make candles.  So off I went after purchasing my supplies I headed to the thrift store to see what I could come up with in regards to what I was going to put the wax in.  I hit pay dirt with these pretty glass cups, I think they went to a punch bowl set.

First batch

I think wanting to make candles stems from getting a candle making kit for Christmas when I was a child and never ever making them.  Talk about childhood issues right ☺ LOL  No seriously, I wonder why I waited so long to do this.

Burning fine

Love, love, love.

Punch cups

I wanted to keep on making candles, but I have to burn these first.
