I asked my hubby for candle making supplies for my birthday & they right on my birthday! So this weekend I enjoyed the 16 inches of snow as an excuse to stay home & make some candles!
Then, I wicked the glass & picked some scents.
Then just heat, mix, & pour!
I ended up with the best smelling gifts!!!
And I am making more scents today!!!
I can hardly wait!
I still have A LOT to learn but I am having so much fun!
Although there is a DANGER...
...little boys lurking about with no supervision.
When I was chopping up wax today, I could see them, but when I was chopping wax AND talking on the phone, Bo knew I was checked out for a few minutes & somehow he managed to walk right passed me with a bag of chocolate chips.
So even though they were "quietly watching t.v."
They were still up to no good!
P.S. In my year of blogging I do apprecaite that I only have received one comment about my bad parenting...actually it referenced that Bo was the type of child that would one day be in jail for murder...so thank you very much to the rest of you for being so sweet :) Even though I show the trouble I do not show the consequences so I am sure it does appear that way :) I actually think blogging makes me a BETTER mom...instead of yelling & screaming I calm down while grabbing my camera & then can calmly have the punishment fit the crime :)
