I got called a "Blogger Mom"

Last week the Orclette and I were talking about how our ancestors had to use candle for light (during our school session) and I had the brilliant idea of researching how candles are made. We hopped onto YouTube (my kids love watching videos) and watched a couple of demonstrations. It looked easy so we made a trip to Hobby Lobby to pick up candle-making supplies. Here are the results of our adventure:




The Orclette helping me. One candle vase was a girl and the other was a boy and they lived happily ever after.


The Miniorc was "opening" everything with his screwdriver.



Prepping the gel candles. I really like having the marbles at the bottom of the glass.



We went with the orange dye.



And ta-da! Two new candles to go on my mantle (the ones on the sides).


Anyway, I was describing out adventures to a classmate (or was it a co-worker? my days are all jumbled) and she exclaimed "You're like one of those blogger moms!" So I figured I'd better blog about this adventure. It was fairly easy and I'm contemplating making more for Christmas gift baskets (yes, I am already planning Christmas gifts. I am that type of person).
