Well…I saw Halloween candy in the store today…and was reminded of layered pillar candles. I know you may not think there’s a link between pillar candles and candy corn, but one of my favorite layered pillar candle projects looks like candy corn. And if you pair it with a sugary fragrance oil, it will look and smell almost good enough to eat!
I spent part of my spring break vacation in the garage – rearranging, organizing, and purging.
I had some inspiration from Gail Blanke’s book “Throw Out Fifty Things” and was working on getting rid of some stuff…but if there’s one thing that candle and soap makers are…it’s thrifty. I mean…that old batch of soap could be rebatched…or those old candle and wax scraps could be recycled. But I did part with a few things…some broken molds, some old oils and colors that would never be used, some faded essential oils. But I was really stuck in the “I may use that some day” syndrome. Oh well…I did make progress…and cleared the way for some fun new stuff!
