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

Cotton Candy


Some other crafting I've done this month --

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.

All the oopsie candles that gave birth to the above candle!

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.

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!
