Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a fun weekend and your new week is off to a fabulous start. I've had Monday and Tuesday off from the nursing home. After hurting my back so much last Saturday I have been taking advantage of some down time. But I did find a lil' bit of energy to do some candle crafting. So, I thought I would share with you :)
I am new to using palm wax. I think its pretty with its feathering design texture. But I had no idea it hardened to such a rock hard wax. *giggles* So I've been doing some experimenting in my wineglasses and mason jars. And I've also discovered some fun creative ways to make new candle containers out of cans... lol

A rose bowl and a DIY vienna sausages can *giggles*

A plethora of candles, melted down to make what I consider my 1st perfectly successful candle!
(The orange streaks at the top are intentional)

On Beltane - May Day I decided to clean up all my candle molds. (do not wash them!!!) - place upside down on
a cookie sheet and warm them in the oven. Then with a paper towel wipe excess wax out. I poured this candle
at a much higher temperature than I have poured the rest of my soy candles at. That one is at 170 degrees. I usually
pour around 150 degrees.

A special gift I made as a thank you gift for my Passion Parties Hostess for having
a facebook passion party.
• Rosemary Lavender Oil
• Contents/Properties
I love making these!! I've started making a little properties info whenever I create
an oil or incense for someone. It tells a bit about each herb, the planet, element associations...
Then I cut it in a wavy edge and slightly burn the edges. SO much fun! So fulfilling!!

I hope you enjoy looking ;)
Hugs & Blessings - Jules xo

That's some beautiful work!

LOL at the Vienna sausages container - I have those in my pantry as well, in case of blackouts or very lean times.

That's a very thoughtful gift for the hostess. I'm sure she appreciated it.

candles..
Good Morning harrietbrown!!!
Thank you :)
Well, ya know I was just looking around my house trying to see what I could re-use as a container.

I have A LOT of cans in my cupboard that I can not use because I had to change to a gluten-free diet. You would not believe the things that contain wheat unless you go looking for it! *giggles* Plus I thought it would be better than the mason jars as far as weight =D
Have a great day!

Re: candles..
Thanks! Good morning to you, too!

Yeah, wheat is like milk or eggs - it's in a lot of things you wouldn't think would contain wheat.

I have to say, I admire your creativity. Keep up the good work! And you have a great day, too!
