Christmas Card and Candles

Now I don’t want anyone to faint because I’m putting a post on.  I know it’s been awhile since I was on here but now I’m back at least right  now.
I saw a post with a beautiful candle on it so right then I knew I had to learn how to do this craft.   Now it was time to check things out on YouTube, what an amazing site you can find most anything there.
Yes, I know I got a little carried away but it was so much fun.  I also made six small candles.  I have already given five of the big candles away and everyone seemed to love them.
Now my next project was to make our Christmas cards…..way too many will need to cut things down a bit next year.
I tried to make it simple and yet have an elegant look as well.   I decided I needed to dress it up a bit so I glued on some red sequins however the glue I used didn’t hold so I had to re-glue some of them.  Learned my lesson real quick!
Well, that’s about it except for wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

Glad you stopped by and hope to see you again!

  2. Oh my word !! Ruth Ann, I am sooooo impressed with these beautiful stamped candles. I knew you would master them but 6 is simply AMAZING !!! Every one colored so perfectly & I know the ladies who were the lucky recipients will treasure them ... Your card is wonderful & achieved the elegant look while still being able to go thru the mail without having to spend extra postage. You've been a busy lady & as always I'm so proud to say "my friend did that" ... All who know you are TRULY blessed ....
    Hugs from your far away friend, Janie
