Candles!

I made a bunch of candles last night and they were all hot when I went to bed.  When I woke up this morning, this is what I found!  They came out great and I can’t wait to dress them up and see if anyone is interested in buying 🙂

Added bones: my house smelled DELICIOUS!

The Sweetest Boy and a New Business!

So I’m trying to start a business selling on Etsy and at local craft fairs.  I have wanted to do this for some time and I am hopeful I can learn enough to grow a business into a full time gig.  And I’m happy to say that I have finally begun!

I posted some bracelets that I make on Etsy and tonight I made soy candles!

I am feeling proud and excited and scared all at the same time.  So many worries but so much opportunity.

The very best part, though, was after I finished making the candles (flavored vanilla) my son gave me two high fives and a big kiss and came to look at my candles (he was very impressed).  Then my husband took him to bed and on the way I heard him sniff the air and say “Those candles are very yummy yummy in my tummy”.

My heart be still.

I love that kid.
