The one where I get crafty.

I consider myself to be quite crafty. Not crafty as in shifty… but crafty as in creative.

I’m into scrapbooking big time. Lately I’ve also been enjoying cardmaking and a few other bits and pieces, like stamping.

My latest obsession though? Candle making.

Here are a few of the candles I’ve churned out over the past couple of weeks:

Angel fragrance, Sex on the Beach, Lime Cooler & Chocolate Fudge!

There are almost as many colours and fragrances as you can imagine! I made the chocolate fudge candle last night, and the fragrance was so strong the whole house smelled like chocolate! How real does it look? I waited until it was half set and then I sprinkled some wax flakes over the top to look a bit like coconut sprinkles.

You can use just about any container you fancy – for example the chocolate fudge candle is in a glass ice-cream dish – but for now I’m mainly sicking to glass tealight holders and jars. That said, I’ve got a lot to keep me going for awhile, I just bought 5kg of wax along with wicks, fragrances and dyes!

I can still smell chocolate fudge. Which is better than eating real chocolate, I guess. I made some vanilla candles this afternoon that smelt so good they had my stomach churning.

So who wants some fudge?
