Candle Making..Princesses..fun fun fun






4 Year old Hannah is on the left, 2 year old Shelby on the right! My grandaughters had a princess sleepover at my house Friday night! They made their tiaras!! We also watched "Enchanted", had bubble baths, and more..Saturday we all went to the park, and on and on I could go..we dropped them off at their homes Saturday night..and today I felt like what the heck am I going to do now? My knees were bad, but I hate to give in to the pain. My husband watched the Red Sox game and then the Celtics game..and I did something new, never tried before!



I made candles..what a blast I had..My dad made candles with me when my brother and I were young...memories of those candlemaking days are great! We used milk cartons to fill up with the colored wax and decorated them with glitter after they were hard...around the holidays..they were ours and we loved them! So I had a strawberry margarita and made some candles..we will see how they come out...one mixture I call `Chill Out' made with lemon, lime, eucalyptus, and lavender.... the other was vanilla and lavender...Yvonne has agreed to try one and see how it is, how long it lasts and whether the scents are ok...
yes I used empty cans..and they seem to be fine..hey recycle right?
Don't forget my post of May 16th! My give away! Leave a comment on that post and I will enter you in the drawing for Miss Blue Check Annie!
Thanks for stopping by..take care..Erin

I'll bet your granddaughters had a grand time and will be asking to go back to gramma's very soon.
I hope your candles turned out well, and you are happy with them. It is fun to do, but messy.
The scents you chose sound delicious.

Sounds like you had a fun time with the girls. I got down on the floor to baste my quilt and ohh my back and legs. I could hardly straighten completely up for a while.
I remember making those candles.
I recently bought some Citronella canles from Party Lights. They sure don't last long. NOw if I could make some of those I sure would.
