 I don't think Ted would call this a craft.:):) He uses his curly saw dust shavings, a bathroom dixie cup and paraffin. Melt the paraffin , pack a cup with shavings, then pour the melted paraffin into the cup of shavings. These are the best fire starters ever. They light faster than the store bought ones and do not take a much. Do I need to say cheaper too?LOL
 While Ted had his hotplate going and double boiler...I thought time to make candles. Got these champagne glasses at the goodwill , fifty cents or less. Put in the wicks, gee they are tall. Melted my soy wax and poured into the glasses.
 I do not know why I bought such tall wicks, as these are probably more for looks.
Tie some pretties around the stems. Add fake flowers, leaves, or jewels. These will be sister gifts. Love my sisters. I love my brothers too, but they aren't into tea parties and gift giving. Silly brothers.
  Today Nana Diana needs prayers for her grandson and family. Won't you please send up a prayer? Thank you blog families. xoxo

  11. Well, crafted items are loved everywhere around the world for various purposes and crafting is also adored by everyone. I personally like wooden handicrafts among all the available types of crafts as these are so beautiful and attractive to enhance beauty of any place. These are really very much adorable.

  12. What a clever idea with the fire starters. And I love those candles. You can always trim the wicks so they aren't so tall.

    Praying for Diana's grandson. Hope he's better today.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
