I did work from home (key word: work) and I was just so tired. These past two weeks of deadline work caught up with me. I had good intentions, but I think I'll have to wait to the w/e and get a trip to the TS into the schedule. I did get to few little things. I grunged up some candles...
VERY easy the Big City way:
- take a plain tea candle and put it in a microwavable cup you don't use for anything but crafting.
- heat it and check on it every 40 seconds or so until it melts.
- when melted, toss in some spice powder and some craft paint (brown, red, black etc) -- just a dab to color the wax.
- take a small paintbrush and heavily swipe it all over the candle. Within 30 minutes for drying, you have an easy grubbed candle!
I have an idea what to do with them, but I'll save it until I'm sure it works! If it does, I'll post the final product.
What else? I put up my new sampler behind my bed. I think it's perfect there. Then, I got a call from a new friend who owns a small prim shop very close to where I live. She is moving the store to a larger location, so she'll be closed for about a month while she and her hubby pack up the store, get it moved, and then set up in the new shop (which she tells me is in a converted big home -- can't wait to see it!!). Her stuff is mostly handmade and so cute. Anyhoo, she knew I was cooing over her candle tarts, so she pulled a pile together for me to hold me over until she re-opens! I took a run over, and came back with these. They smell deee-licious!! Mulled cider and cinnamon. What can smell better on a cold, icy day? I have an electric tart warmer in the BR and the LR so it smells yummy in here.
We did have an ice storm here in Philly, and the schools were closed, but I didn't think it was anywhere near as bad as what I've seen on some of your blogs! It's already warming up and melting off. Good thing, since I have to get to WW for a weigh-in tomorrow. I've been trying to be good...but we'll see if I was able to get any of those 2 pounds off!So, that was my day...hope yours was warm and safe! Everyone got such good stuff done today! Did you see the pics of Gina's cats (and pup??) Could they be any cuter?? I could just gobble them up! What love bugs!!!!
